Happy Customers

A bit more about what our customers are saying

Craig was recommended to me by a friend and I am delighted with the service I received. Craig was friendly, knowledgable and understood exactly what I wanted. The result is fantastic. My suite has been restored to a brand new condition and I would have no hesitation in recommending Craig.

Craig refilled all the cushions on my large lounge sofas and conservatory sofas/chairs. It has completely transformed the furniture and we couldn’t be more pleased.

Could not be happier with the service and job Craig provided us. He upholstered our bench seating in our kitchen and made us some cushions to fit along the back and it looks great!

He always kept us up to date with delivery of fabric and fittings and was always reliable. Would recommend to anyone. Thanks Craig!

When Craig dropped off the chair for the big reveal it was way better than expected. He helped me chose fabrics as I don’t think I’m very good at having the imagination – he helped me narrow it down and the result is just spectacular.
Now my chair looks as good as it should. Very impressed with his service, easy going to deal with. Thanks Craig!!

I just wanted to thank you for the beautiful upholstery on my chairs. They are a joy to sit on and look absolutely first class.

I definitely know where to come in the future and will highly recommend you to everyone I know.

I had been trying to find someone for more than a year willing to entertain this as removing some of the leather covering completely to be able to get inside was not something anyone else as yet would take on.
Craig and Scott were extremely good communication wise and always punctual and willing to advise on best way to proceed.
I was delighted with the first part of corner sofa when it was returned so I decided to have the other portion also refilled and also foot stool.
it is now all lovely and firm..the creases in the leather duevto sagging to an extent have been filled out and the back cushions ,seat cushions and arms are all full and plump despite them all being fixed cushions and diffucult to get to.
Craig worked hard and managed to get into the sofa to renew all..
great job really thrilled would not hesitate to use again or to recommend.

I just wanted to say thank you for completely transforming my bed head. It went looking sad and tired and came back looking absolutely amazing! The workmanship is of a high standard and I am thrilled!

We just wanted to thank you for the excellent service and workmanship, something so often missing nowadays. We were really at a loss when the cushion on the chair we purchased from a well known retail store was both uncomfortable and ill fitting. The retailer’s technician reported there was nothing wrong but you could see immediately you had sight of the chair exactly what was wrong with it and corrected it. It was a very expensive chair and without your help would have been a disastrous buy. Now it is perfect and we have had several comments on how comfortable it is.

On the strength of your excellent workmanship, we asked if you could do anything with our settees. Whilst getting on a bit, they still look good other than the seat and back support cushions which were decidedly saggy. The settees have taken on a new lease of life and look great.

We were also very impressed with the cost of the work which was very reasonable.
