03/03/2017: "Multi-York" Suite in Subtle "Linwood" Fabric

It was particularly pleasing to work with the subtle, diamond pattern "Linwood" fabric chosen by this client, as it requires great attention to detail in order to get the pattern matching perfect. Very often, the simpler the pattern, the more glaring any tiny errors become. It is also nice to be able to work for customers who take a real interest in the job. In this case, the client thought long and hard before opting for re-upholstery instead of replacement, as they wanted the job to be absolutely perfect.

It was very satisfying to show them over the work in our workshop before re-delivery and have them tell us that, on inspection, their "new" suite delighted them, as did the fact that we kept our promise to deliver "as new" condition. They were also kind enough to say that it was a pleasure to do business with us.

A good deal of the satisfaction in such a finished result starts with the foundations of the work, so as a matter of course, each piece is stripped back to the frame, so that can be inspected, putting right any flaws that may be found. This builds a strong foundation that will support the upholstery just like when the suite was new. All interior materials are then replaced with top quality, flameproof products.

Finally, before applying the upholstery, we also 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 replaced with best quality flame retardant "Fibre-fill". The combination of "Reflex" and "Fibre-fill" ensures maximum comfort, quality and durability.

We always encourage clients to visit the workshop to view the quality of our craftsmanship at any stage in the process. So that you can be proud of your furniture, we are proud of the way that it is treated while in our care.
