Upholstery Works

Simply put, upholstery is the work of attaching a furniture frame with padding, cushioning, and fabric or leather textile covers. The material makes a significant difference to the visual identity of the chair, and while the interior elements may not be visible, they make a big difference to the comfort and ergonomics of the piece.

Fabric creates a first and lasting impression on people, so it’s essential that it looks perfect. When selecting materials to complement our pieces, we divide them into fabric groups, considering how easy it to upholster, the nature of the pile, the Martindale rating and the fire retardancy. All these elements affect how the fabric will look over time – especially when you throw contours and curves into the mix or broad swathes of material.
