30/09/2016: "Cooper's" four piece suite in "Jim Dickens" fabrics

This week's task was to completely re-upholster a "Cooper's" four piece suite. The suite comprised of one three seat sofa, one two seat sofa, one armchair and one lift-top footstool. The suite was in dire need of some attention, which it was given as soon as it got to our workshop. The three and two seater sofas have been given the same stunningly striped fabric from the new "Jim Dickens" range. All four pieces were finished with a rolled edge to complete the job. There was a lot of time put into this project, as there always is. The stripe pattern required meticulous attention to detail when matching to ensure a first class result.

The existing seat cushion interiors were replaced with the best quality flame retardant "Reflex" interiors, which carry a ten year guarantee. They were also wrapped in a secondary casing, composed of Dacron and stockinette to prolong cushion life. The existing back cushion interiors have been replaced with the best quality flame retardant "Fibre-fill" interiors. The combination of "Reflex" and "Fibre-fill" interiors ensure maximum comfort, quality and durability.

In order to get a perfect result you have to create a perfect starting point. To achieve this, all four pieces were stripped back to their frames and all the interiors have now been replaced with top of the range flame retardant materials. To ensure all pieces of the suite were restored to meet their original highest "Cooper's" standards and specifications.

The customer also asked for five scatter cushions for comfort and style, one pair of arm caps and two metres of spare fabric, just in case this is required in the future.
