Miscellaneous

Every good upholsterer needs a miscellaneous section. You never know what’s coming in next. Window seats can be made to measure, to utilise every inch of space in living areas; ottomans in various shapes and sizes are superb for storage; and pouffes are just so useful and cute. The one shown here arrived with a remit to be filled with wood shavings. What’s next? We really can’t guess!

Through The Workshop Door - July 2019

July has come and gone, and my feet have hardly touched the ground! The month started with a well-deserved holiday on Dartmoor and Devon, and for the rest of the month I’ve been playing catch up!

Highlights this month has been the reunion of the Leather Club chair with its delighted owners. As mentioned previously, the chair has a twin so its sibling has already been stripped down and is eagerly awaiting its rebuild in the Needle Rock workshop. The fabric has also been chosen for the seat cushions, so hopefully in next month’s blog you’ll see the twins together with matching seats!

July has also seen the commission of several furniture painting jobs – these seem to come along like buses – none for ages then several at the same time. The first commission was to give a new lease of life to some bedroom pine cupboards, which were solid, but looked rather dated. My customer had just had the bedrooms decorated and had a colour scheme which she’d acquired from a printed canvas – so I took the printed canvas away and matched the colour scheme accordingly. The results were superb.
