Antique Upholstery Restoration Using Original Materials & Fastenings
Upholstery work can include conservation of needleworks, the reuse of original webbings to keep the integrity of the furniture’s history. Antique furniture was traditionally filled with several different types of organic materials, which varied in both quality and price. Such as horsehair that was so often used in the makeup of an upholstered item. We still employ this in our upholstery restoration work as well as using the very best in materials.
All antique furniture reupholstery, restoration and conservation work is carried out using upholstery tacks, hand stitching and carefully reusing brass or bronze domed nails to finish the item, we can replicate the domed heads using our lost wax casting process if missing heads are required to be replaced.
