Steinhough's offers an upholstery recover service for your special sofas and chairs. People seldom

realise the amount of work involved to bring their cherished piece of furniture back to it’s former

glory. The whole process of  recovering is painstaking and very time consuming. When a client

visits our showroom, or we see them in their own home, we can see the outer covers and general

condition of the padding and springs etc on the piece to be recovered, but what about the things

you can’t see? With that in mind, the first stage is.........


Step 1 We discuss with you your exact requirements and acertain whether the whole piece needs

recovering , or, if any of the cushions are to be kept and if so does the padding need replacing?

Step 2  You choose a new  fabric.

We will then collect your furniture and the real work can begin.
Step 3 All the covering has to be carefully removed, virtually staple for staple or tack for tack.
Step 4 The foam and padding may be deteriorating and need replacing. Depending on the age of the

piece the paddings may have to be replaced anyway to comply with current Fire regulations.

It is amazing how many pieces of furniture we see that are actually held together by the covering.

Once the fabric and foam have been removed we can see why it rocked slightly so will need ......

Step 5 The frame has to have some frame surgery carried out. Some old pieces even show signs of

woodworm. These first 5 steps are undertaken before the re upholstery service has even started.
Step 6 All fabric has to be carefully unpicked and used as the pattern on the new fabric you chose so

that an identical cover can be cut and sewn.

Step 7 The frame is then re foamed, padded and re sprung using modern fire retardent materials.
Step 8 The newly sewn covers are then applied to the foamed, padded frame to your specifications.
Step 9 All seat and back cushions are then re-sewn and filled with either the original fillings or new

ones specially ordered for your piece of furniture.

Step 10 Your completed recover is delivered back to your home
If we are making new furniture steps 3 to 6 inc are not required. 2 or 3 days can be spent on these steps

and that’s where major costs are involved, when in reality , all you have save in a recover is the cost of

the frame.

We are more than happy to help if you  wish to have your family heir loom, treasured piece of furniture

or the most comfy thing you have ever sat on recovered. If you would like a FREE no obligation quote
