Restoration and Reupholstery of Heirloom Furniture – Ask Wills Furniture

Regent-Large

It could be an occasional chair, or perhaps a set of dining chairs, or maybe it’s a sofa with matching armchairs. Family heirlooms – they’ve been in the family for generations, but lately you’ve noticed they look tired. The spring is no longer there, the cushions have sagged, the fabric is… well, a bit thin. Time for a restoration and reupholstering from Wills Furniture.

Heirloom Antiques and well preserved upholstered furniture can provide a difficult dilemma. Do you repair, restore and reupholster? Or do you simply replace it with new furniture, fashioned traditionally by skilled craftsmen and artisans, using the tried and true methods and materials of the trade?

Often it comes down to the real condition of the piece being considered. Is it merely cosmetic – fabric, springs, webbing or cushioning? Or is it substantial – the frame, the actual integrity of the piece? For instance, if the frame is insect ridden (wood borers or termites) there is really no purpose in restoring it. In this case the Wills team can advise you of a suitable replacement piece.

Wills Furniture, with over 80 years experience in furniture construction and restoration can provide you with a thorough, honest and knowledgeable assessment. If you decide to proceed with restoration, the Wills team of craftsmen and women will restore your furniture piece to its former glory.

Wills Furniture – Handcrafted, Lovingly Designed

Many furniture makers claim to be ‘crafted’ or ‘hand made’ by Artisans. One look generally tells even an untried eye that this simply isn’t true. Manufacturers, both local and international simply ‘cut corners’. It’s an interesting phrase and it was most likely borne out of the upholstery industry. It suggests a cut to save money on cloth. At Wills Furniture all our furniture is genuinely hand made, using the full length of cloth, fabric or leather to produce exquisite traditional and contemporary furniture. Sofas, armchairs, tub chairs, dining chairs and ottomans.

 

Houston Sofa

Where others use mechanisation, we used skilled artisans plying the trade they have been passed down through generations. Each component follows rigid quality specifications and manufacturing processes.

Cushions

Cushions are offered with a range of fillings as standard offerings – feather and foam, premium foam and dacron (seating cushions) and holifil/dacron for firmer back cushions.

Optional choices include ‘Luxury Foam’, Enduro Foam, Spring Cells and Feather combinations.

Coil Springs and Contemporary Springing
