03/02/2017: Classic 1960s "Minty" Furniture - a Joy to Work With

This week we completely re-upholstered one classic "Minty" three piece suite, comprising a three seater sofa and two armchairs, in a best quality flame retardant "Warwick" chenille fabric.

"Minty" furniture is a pleasure to work with as although this suite is some fifty years old, it is classic, very on-trend and superbly made.

Although this client lives in Tunbridge Wells, a little out of our usual area, they were keen to find the best upholstery company to renovate and re-upholster their classic and much loved furniture. The feedback that they found on our own website and through the Which? Trusted Trader comments reassured them that they would receive a first class result. After viewing examples of our work in our weekly blog and photo gallery, they commissioned us to carry out the work, valuing the end result more than the distance involved.

Even though "Minty" furniture is superbly made and you can rely on its longevity, just to satisfy ourselves that the finished work would be "as new", all three pieces were stripped back to the frame and all interiors replaced with best quality flame retardant interiors, preserving its highest original "Minty" specification.

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

Our clients were very, very pleased with their "new" suite, said it was very comfortable and were thrilled with the end result. They were kind enough to say they would happily recommend us and we look forward to reading their feedback on our Which? Trusted Traders page in due course!

In their own words: "Dear Richard

Many thanks for re-upholstering our Minty Suite. We are delighted with it.

We will send the Which? trusted traders feedback shortly.
