The ugly truth about

furniture and what to do about it.

Hotels and Conference Centres should always take pride in the ambience and aesthetic that is presented to visitors when they first walk in. The initial impact a guest gets when first walking through the doors is crucial in capturing your essence and the impression you are trying to give.

Something we often observe as part of our craft is the distressed appearance of furnishings in hotels. Often it seems quicker and easier to replace furniture, but this isn't always the most cost-effective solution. Whether it's deflated cushions, threadbare sofas or frayed curtains, these all have an impact on the experience your guests have when staying in your hotel. 

Hotels thrive on recommendations and testimonials - it's amazing the effect that tired looking furnishings or uncomfortable seating can have on a guests decision to leave a 3-star review instead of a 5-star.

Here at Richardson and Paige, we are experts in working in hotels and would love the opportunity to show you how simple it is to refurbish your furniture and fabric walls. We understand that a room under refurbishment means it cannot be occupied, but our experience and expertise means interruption is kept to an absolute minimum.

"They are immensely reliable, skilled, conscientious and always deliver on time."

"We have just completed a refurbishment program of 22 bedrooms; when in the planning stage, I reached out to Richardson & Paige without hesitation for the refurbishment of all our furniture in need of reupholstering.
I have worked with them on 2 previous hotel projects. Each hotel was a 5 Star property with high quality furniture that has become a little shabby with use and required sprucing up.


Having discovered Richardson and Paige in the first instance (approximately 12 years ago) there can be no doubt in my mind that they are the right people for the job. They are immensely reliable, skilled, conscientious and always deliver on time. 
I have no hesitation in recommending them!"
