Don’t let your antique furniture lose its charm. Sometimes the spring can go in sofas, and fabric can be torn, but at Abbey Upholstery, by using our expertise and five-star restoration services, we can ensure your furniture is kept looking and feeling new.

Modern furniture

Not only are we experts in restoring your antique furniture, we also reupholster more modern furniture. From Ikea to Bridgecraft, if you love your suite its always worth reupholstering. Some before and after shots for you to see how we can transform your sofas and chairs. You can see more of our work on our case studies page!

Conservatory furniture

The sun causes damage to conservatory furniture. At first you notice that the fabric is bleaching in colour which is gradual and you often don’t realise until you come to turn the cushions and swap them around. The fabric then perishes and tears in your hands. We have often had to piece it back to together to work from. New covers can really transform your conservatory. We can guide you on lighter colours which will show the bleaching less in the future and have even made throws in matching fabric to save the cushions. We can also repolish the frame work if it has faded.

Branded furniture


Founded in 1907, Ercol Furniture has always made top quality furniture with a unique style equally for the contemporary or traditional setting. Both elegant and built sturdy to last in design and comfort, it’s one of the UK’s top furniture brands. At Abbey Upholstery, we restore furniture carefully in sympathy to the original Ercol standard. We work to replicate the original finish, and prefer to do things the Ercol way. We use Pirelli webbing and use the dowling technique when replacing torn, brittle and sagging webbing. We use press studs for cushion fixing and when we replace seat foam we achieve the same look of  Ercol by retaining the domed effect on the cushions. All these little touches and techniques we have mastered over the years makes us an Ercol specialist who is also recommended by Ercol itself.

Bridgecraft Vale

Established in 1947, Bridgecraft sofas are a world-famous Yorkshire furniture company, who’s furniture uses traditional techniques and high levels of craftmanship. If you’re looking to restore your Bridgecraft furniture after years of it serving you well, we can guide you on your fabric choice, and can offer both classic and modern options to create that ‘brand new’ look again.


Making luxury furniture since 1938, Duresta provide beautiful handmade furniture, handcrafted by skilled craftsmen. They use only the finest materials and their pattern matching skills are unrivalled. But over time, general wear and tear can take form. Abbey Upholstery can work with you to breathe new life into your Duresta furniture. We go to the annual Furniture Show at The NEC in January every year. My favourite stand is always Duresta, I love to see the fabric combinations they use on their magnificent suites.

Parker Knoll

Over the last 140 years, Parker Knoll has established itself as one of the most popular handmade upholstery manufacturers in the country. Furniture of such a high quality that it is a delight to work with, and restores extremely well. By using modern fabrics, you can choose something to compliment your other furniture. Alternatively, if you’d like to keep it traditional we have plenty of classic fabric styles too!

G Plan

At Abbey Upholstery, we can rejuvenate your original pieces, making them look and feel brand new! So, with the new retro reproduction range G Plan have brought out, you needn’t look further than us to provide the full reupholster service for your sofas and chairs.

Dining Chairs

From Barstools to fully upholstered chairs, you can save a full dining suite by replacing the upholstery on your chairs. We have lots of fabrics which are treated with stain repellents so cleaning couldn’t be easier.


This is an area we have expanded over the last few years, possibly because I love fabrics and can’t say no to new books! This is what truly transforms the look of your furniture.

I’ve tried to keep plenty of choice within the ranges that I stock, covering traditional styles and colours right through to vibrant plush velvets that are on trend (even though Dad says they never left!). I stock fabrics from local companies Ross Fabrics and Moons wools, Harlequin, Sanderson, Clarke & Clarke, Warwick, William Morris and Christina Marrone.
