E & A Wates upholstery service is now closed, full details here
Our talented team of craftspeople can restore your upholstery from the frame upwards if necessary, from new springs to goose down cushions. We use traditional techniques to restore antique and classic pieces with a whole new look.

In our purpose-built workshop the requirements are incredibly varied. Restoration can range from a deep buttoned Queen Anne chair, a Georgian bergère, a Charles Eames c20th classic or an Ikea daybed.

Loose covers
Choosing loose covers will help keep costs down and provide the flexibility of washable fabrics. With children or pets around your sofa can still look great.

Don’t think that your furniture is beyond rescue, it may be far better than an expensive new alternative but simply needs a major service.

You can also order matching accessories, scatter cushions, table runners and dining chair covers made-to-measure.
