UPHOLSTERY

Upholstery is addictive… and breathing new life in to tired, time-worn but cherishes items of furniture can be quite exhilarating – especially when a client is moved to tears of joy as I have recently experienced. Combining a mix of modern and/or traditional techniques, I strip, restore and rebuild with great care using the highest quality materials and workmanship.

From footstools to headboards, side chairs to sofas…I treat every piece as an opportunity to restore old beauty. I also like to create true one-offs that can’t be sourced elsewhere.

My approach is to work closely with you, advising you on fabrics to ensure your chosen fabric is suitable and will create the finish and look that you wish to achieve.

I have accounts with some of the UK’s best and international fabric suppliers and designers, all well-known for their quality, style, design and durability.

If you have an item of furniture you would like reupholstered, please get in touch to arrange an appointment for me to view it; alternatively, email me at hello@johnhatch.co.uk and include a photo and any ideas you might have. I’d love to hear from you!

Occasionally, I have time to  produce one-off pieces which maybe chairs or the like I have collected over the years that have been discarded. I have then restored them, tightening the frames where required and upholstered with new fillings so that they meet current flame retardancy regulations. Other items may built from a new frame which I have bought in to create a statement piece. 

Some examples of my work are pictured below. Items for sale will be listed on the shop page. (As at April 2020 – no items at present, please pop back soon)

My normal service areas are in and around Devon, Somerset, Dorset and Cornwall, but I have happily accepted work from all around the UK, and would be delighted to discuss options with you.  I offer a free-of-charge collection and return service within a 20 mile radius of Honiton.
