Re-Seated is an artisan upholstery and textiles company, which takes a couture approach to upholstery.
We also sell a small selection of antique and 20th century chairs, lighting and some hand-crafted furniture items that are available to buy on our online shop or at our stalls at Ardingly or Alexandra Palace Antiques fairs.
We work with personal clients, interior designers, furniture boutiques and antique dealers, to source and transform individual pieces to enhance their interiors.
Re – upholstery and choosing the right fabric is an exciting part of the process and we are happy to help guide you. There is a lot to think about: texture, colour, fire retardancy and durability. We supply fabrics from LINWOOD, SANDERSON, LIBERTY, WILLIAM MORRIS, WEMYSS, WARWICK, HARRIS TWEED, TIMOROUS BEASTIES and HARLEQUIN amongst others…..
Re-Seated also offer a curtain, blind and soft furnishings service. We are happy to give free quotations and design consultations on any of your up and coming projects for home or trade enquries to ensure you get a quality product at an affordable price.
Keep up to date with trends and take a little inspiration by viewing our recent work and ‘before and afters’ by on our blog…..
A basic guide to upholstery costs
Every piece of furniture is different: some needing a straight re-cover of fabric, others needing more repair work to the chair. All estimated prices are for a basic re-cover with a refreshed top layer of wadding. If any further work is required I will advise with a price before going ahead.
- Dining chairs seats – from £45 each
- Nursing /armless chairs – from £150 each
- Armchairs – from £275 each
- 2 seater Sofa – from £550
- Lampshades – from £55
- Fabric costs are additional
Having worked for over 20 years in Design and Fashion, Helen brings an aesthetic and artistic eye to re-upholstery, which works well for clients who want a little design input or when a bold transformation is planned for a design piece.
Whilst the structural restoration is an essential part of the upholstery process to ensure a longer life of a chair, we get equal delight in ensuring the perfect fabric is chosen for the chair to either modernise for the 21st century or compliment the era to which it originally belonged……we can help to sympathetically or dramatically enhance the look of the finished piece.
Helen has been fortunate to train over the last 3 years in traditional upholstery skills with teachers in both Wales & East Sussex. She now works alongside a local upholsterer which allows her to manage larger commissions and to continue to develop skills in both traditional and modern techniques.
