The show provides an excellent vehicle to both promote new material and to view new trends and directions for 2018/19. Colour is definitely to the fore with rich natural greens, reds and deep blues being very popular in this year’s European Summer shows. Florals and Indoor plants also make a big return in fabrics, wallpapers and coverings.

Restoration, Rejuvenation or Replacement – Ask Wills Furniture

Amelia_a20151029a painting lowered crop

Often a favourite lounge, sofa or armchair offers up a genuine dilemma.

“It’s been in my family for generations”

“My mother cherished it”

“Quality like that – they just don’t make them like that anymore”

Maybe, but firstly 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.


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.

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.


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.

Here are some of the Sofas and Armchairs available through our Wills Collection that meld beautifully into a traditional interior design.

Louis XIV, the Sun King reigned from 1660 to 1720 and the style during his reign was one of unparalleled splendour. He believed his home (Versailles Palace), furniture and décor should reflect the glory, power and wealth of the monarchy.
