Richard Bull Upholstery - What Our Customers Say

I came across Richard Bull Upholstery by chance about 10 years ago. Richard recovered four Parker Knoll chairs with matching footstool in gold, heavy brocade. I was so pleased with the result I have used his services ever since, which included making deep seat cushions for four Lloyd Loom conservatory chairs, and an indoor contemporary bench seat with matching bolster. The service and quality of his work are second to none. Good workmanship is hard to find these days and I have no hesitation in recommending him and his company."

"Thank you for lovely card. Ercol seats very comfortable. Thanks for such a good service. I wish you and your family a happy Christmas."
Mr & Mrs Hillman, Brentwood, April, 2015


It is really good to feel that there are some professionals out there who appreciate their customers. The Coopers suite that you recovered for us and the matching two seater bespoke sofa is living up to all your promises and our expectations. The quality of workmanship is, i believe, better than the original Coopers work and that was pretty good.

Once again thanks for an excellent service

"Sheer Brilliance

Richard has been re-upholstering my antique furniture for over 10 years - anything from stools and nursing chairs to horse-hair filled victorian sofas. He has also organised work on the wooden surrounds of such furniture. Around 4 years ago Richard re-upholstered some more modern furniture for us and made two large sofas with footstalls to our order. His work is absolutely brilliant, his advise is sound and I would not consider going anywhere else for upholstery work. "

So delighted. Thank you again All the best "

"Hi Richard, just to let you know that Linda was delighted with the furniture when she got home - there's also been lots of admiring comments from our visitors."
Mr & Mrs K Reilly, Woodford, March, 2011


I am absolutely delighted with the refurbished Parker Knolls. Yesterday the MD of the firm who redesigned two rooms in the flat, came and greatly admired the furniture. He especially commented on the attractive fabric texture.

The renovation is just miraculous and they look good in all sorts of lighting. The Moroccan leather pouffe arrived yesterday and is lovely. Its colour, dark chocolate, matches the finish of the legs of the chairs and sofa. That was such a good recommendation of yours and I think it all looks stunning. I have not had any visitors since the furniture arrived but I will let you know their reaction in due course. There is much interest!
