Upholstery Workshop

When you see a nice reconditioned leather sofa, armchair or daybed on our website or in our store you may wonder what has been done to restore it and what is it like inside?

Our upholsterer is trained in true east-end traditional techniques. He strips old chairs back to the frames which are then glued and fixed as neccessary. Springs are re-tied and/or replaced, linings reset and padding layered as required.

The bare leather is cut to shape and stretched into place. It is often secured by upholsterer's pins, stitched or sometimes even buttoned - as you can see here on these wing chairs that were recently restored.

The final stage of the process is the colouring of the leather - either as here to colour the whole chair or also to colour match in where repairs have been done, panels replaced or new cushions have been added. Nice job Martin!

Bright Lights



We have a lot of new lighting coming into stock over the coming dark winter months. We have small runs and larger runs of salvaged and reconditioned factory pendants and bulkheads and street lamps as well as a few unique one-off pieces that we have also managed to source.

Our lighting has been used in many residential, office and retail developments over the past 12 months - including Soho House in Shoreditch and Berlin, Gant UK and Europe, Byron, The Breakfast Club, Nandos, 2020 London.

Our lights are featured in this month's World of Interiors including our reconditioned and polished massive 10kW Pinewood Studio Lamps from the 1950s. If you have the space we still have a few left !

You magazine


Elemental appeared last weekend in 'you' magazine. The interior of one of our customer's houses was featured. The butcher's table and the old theatre seats shown were both purchased from us. One of our current run of blackboards and easels were also shown

We have a very similar solid and chunky library table currently in stock.  And more theatre chairs coming into stock soon.
