FURNITURE UPHOLSTERY AND RESTORATION
Welcome to UPFurnitureUK
TRANSFORM YOUR OLD FURNITURE INTO SOMETHING NEW!
I am a traditional upholsterer based in
Forest Row, set in the heart of Ashdown Forest.
Traditional upholstery is a craft which evolved over centuries for padding and covering chairs, seats, and sofas, before the development of sewing machines, synthetic fabrics, and plastic foam.
I offer a bespoke upholstery and re-upholstery service, using these traditional skills. My work is done with the utmost care and attention to detail, taking the time to understand what you want from your furniture, as well as providing advice and ideas on suitable fabrics for your piece.
About Me (plus how to get in touch)

My interest in upholstery all stemmed from a chair I purchased in an antique shop a few years ago. I signed up for upholstery classes to rescue the chair and soon realised what a satisfying craft it was.
In 2021 I took a leap of faith and started a small business in traditional upholstery based at Highgate Works in Forest Row. At Highgate Works I am fortunate to be surrounded by other creative individuals who are passionate about arts and crafts such as ceramicists, tapestry weavers, textile creation, artists, and antique restorers. Not to mention the resident cat Monty who is a bit of a celebrity.
If you have a chair in mind, you would like upholstered or recovered, I would be more than happy to discuss this with you.
