Depend on Wills Furniture for Design, Luxury and Comfort

Wills Furniture – Handcrafted and expertly designed and finished.

Strasbourg_0008-crop

Recently a number of large furniture retailers have made claims to offering for sale ‘handcrafted’ furniture. It would be interesting to investigate the veracity of such claims. A glance, even with an untrained eye will immediately notice that this simply isn’t true. Manufacturers, both local and offshore are known to ‘cut corners’. The phrase originated where tailors and upholsterers gave ‘short’ measure of cloth/fabric to save money. At Wills Furniture you can be entirely confident that our skilled artisans and tradesmen genuinely hand craft all Wills Furniture in the traditional manner to produce the very best in superb Traditional and Contemporary Furniture – Sofas, armchairs, tub chairs, dining chairs and ottomans.

Traditional Upholstery and Craftsmanship. From humble beginnings to modern workshops.

Albert-web

Wills Furniture takes great pride in producing hand built, hand crafted furniture, using time honoured skills and methodologies. All Wills Furniture is built, upholstered and finished in our modern Hawthorn Workshop and Studio – by hand. The methods, techniques and crafts have been passed down through generations of artisan tradesmen and women at Wills – Upholsterers, seamstresses, frame builders and finishers. It’s a team effort. But there is an interesting and intriguing history attached to the craft of furniture making.

‘Upholders’ become ‘Upholsterers’

anim-craftsmanship-1xl.jpg

Upholsterers used to be called ‘Upholders’. In the 18th Century it referred more to those who repaired furniture rather than the artisans who created new pieces.

‘Upholders’ often doubled as interior decorators, taking full responsibility for the overall look and feel of a room, providing the aspect/s desired by the home owner and householder. Such craftsmen were members of the ‘Worshipful Company of Upholders’. Originally these artisans provided upholstery, textiles and fittings for funerals (perhaps this may provide insight into some of the sombre interiors of the times).

As it was, generally a cabinet maker would pair or partner an ‘upholder’ to provide the service that came to be known as ‘Traditional Upholstery’.

Traditional Upholstery

banner-xl-craft3.jpg

Over the centuries, traditional upholstery evolved. The padding and covering of chairs, seats and sofas became recognised as an accepted craft, long before sewing machines, synthetic fabrics or various types of foam were ever available.

Traditional methodologies for upholstery involve using a solid wood frame or platform (webbed). It can also involve various kinds of springs, lashings, stuffing (animal hair and feathers), grasses and coir, wools, hessians, scrims, bridle ties, stuffing ties, blind stitching, flocks and wadding, all built up by hand.

coil-springing.jpg

By the early 17th Century, chair seats were being padded if in a somewhat basic fashion. The shapes and styles of upholstery we now consider ‘classic’ (both the shapes and manufacturing techniques) were popularised in the 17th Century, but remained the province of the very wealthy. New techniques gave greater control with the ‘stuffing’ enabling further definition in the upright and sloping lines of popular furniture.

The Victorian era saw excessive stuffing and padding pay homage to the fashionable opulence of the era.

And as the craft evolved with stainless steel springs and new lashing techniques, the seats, backs and arms were further built up, independent of the solid frame’s shape. More complex stuffings, elaborately shaped rolls and scrolls, with different fabrics allowing soft padded shapes by means of buttoning saw new styles and shapes evolve until we have the types of furniture we now feature in our exclusive Wills Collection.

The Wills team faithfully follow the techniques described, handed down over the centuries from the original ‘Upholders’ to today’s specialist upholstery artisans.

All Wills Furniture is handmade faithfully to those tried and true techniques, with the added advantage of modern equipment and studio fitting.

The Wills Furniture team return to work on Monday, January 6th. Wee look forward to seeing you then. For any urgent enquiries please call 03 9815 0111 and leave a message. Alternatively, you can contact us here for a prompt response.

A Happy and Prosperous New Year to everyone from the Wills Furniture team. See you in the New Year!

Antique and Classic Upholstered Furniture – Restored at Wills Furniture by Master Craftsmen.

For those lucky enough to own genuine antique furniture, it is often a real dilemma when seeking out the right company or artisans to maintain or repair an item that may be hundreds of years old. It could be a Chaise Lounge of French provincial origin. Or it may simply be a beautiful family heirloom treasure – a sofa and armchairs, hand-built in the 1920s. The solution is simple. Arrange for an on the spot appraisal by Wills Furniture.

banner-xl-craft2.jpg

At Wills our artisans, craftsmen and seamstresses will determine just what is required to professionally restore your treasured piece of furniture. We will ensure framing, springs, wadding and fabrics are treated methodically in the same manner as when the item was actually crafted. No shortcuts, no modern additions, just a faithful and complete restoration.

 

banner-m-home4.jpg

Firstly, the question is always is it really worth restoring? In many cases the answer is sadly ‘no’, but for those rarer cases where such rejuvenation is both feasible and desirable, the Wills team are the right people to bring your treasured item back to life.

banner-xl-craft3.jpg

The Wills team are genuine craftsmen and women. Artisans who really understand upholstery and traditional furniture. A quick assessment on the framing, quality and fabric or leather replacement provides the answers on a financial basis.

Unknown crop.jpg

Some items that are genuine antiques are certainly worth the investment. others such as rundown units form the ‘50s and ‘60s are probably better replaced. The Wills Collection offers an exciting and interesting range of traditional upholstered furniture, very suitable to provide a seamless replacement of that ‘timeless’ piece.

Unknown-1 crop.jpg

Restoration is however a strong suit with the Wills Furniture team. The Wills team will replace the webbing, springs, and fabric, strengthen the framing and provide new cushioning, castors and armrests. All work is carried out using traditional methods and materials. Great care is taken to ensure your precious furniture is returned to you in pristine condition, ready for the next 50 years.
