Traditional Method

We use traditional materials and techniques because they are true to the heritage of the piece, they ensure quality and longevity and are kinder to the environment.The natural properties of hair, cotton and wool felts, jute hessians and feather down cushions are not only traditional and environmentally friendly, but they also combine to produce a superior looking and more comfortable chair or sofa.

We work alongside local craftspeople to modernise or re-model furniture. We can create an original piece of bespoke furniture for you, from scratch. We also offer painted finishes and french polishing.



Choosing the best Cushioning Materials

We source our feather and down filling from specialist wholesalers in the UK, who we have carefully selected for quality and consistancy. We recommend an English duck feather filling with a high percentage of down; to ensure comfort whilst not necessitating constant ‘plumping’. Pure duck down cushions are also available for the truly decadent. We are also able to supply modern hypoallergenic alternatives.






Choosing the Best Fabrics

We will help you choose the right type of upholstery fabric for your furniture, suitable for your decor and usage (children and pets taken into consideration). Also we can put you in touch with one of our Cotswold fabric suppliers based in Painswick, Gloucestershire; who has a large selection of beautiful quality fabrics, sourced from all over Europe in his showroom. We are also suppliers of a superb selection of Scotish quality leather hides and suede hides in various finishes.
