For many people, it’s now time to prepare for the Holiday Season. For many there has already been a visit to the Holiday House on the Mornington Peninsula, the Surf Coast or similar locations. The sun can take its toll on fabrics and leathers, especially when you’re not there to take care of them 24/7. It may be now time to reupholster or simply purchase a new sofa, chair or combination.

Wills Furniture offer an expert reupholstery service. A family business, the Wills team have been maintaining valuable furniture for loyal customers, sometimes for generations.

The Wills team will take your valuable family heirloom sofa or armchair and refurbish it in exactly the same manner it was first crafted. You may choose to utilise some of today’s more sun-resistant fabrics, or select a fabric that is perhaps more in keeping with your requirements and lifestyle. The Wills team are genuine artisans and tradesmen, upholsterers, machinists and seamstresses who simply do not ‘cut corners’. You can rely on a perfect finish in every detail and your sofa, armchair or dining chair will appear refreshed and serviceable for years to come.

In this Anna Spiro Design project we featured a month ago, the Clivedon Sofa and Ottoman displayed are upholstered in ‘Carnival Green’ from the Christopher Farr Cloth Fabrics Collection. This is in fact an ‘outdoor’ rated fabric and it is specifically manufactured to be protected against sun damage.

Wills Furniture has a wealth of experience in working with a wide range of interior designers and decorators. The Wills team can bring to life these designer visions and creations of bespoke furniture with real professionalism, craftsmanship and finesse.

Take a look at the Whitehall Sofa. With traditional Diamond Buttoning this beautiful chesterfield styled sofa speaks of luxury and comfort. With large splayed out scrolled arms featuring inset piping detail, the overall finish is class, simply stunning. The sofa is finished with chunky timber legs or piano sized casters – or a tailored skirt.

The Florence Sofa is another exquisite standard, a classical Victorian style sofa. It features a diamond buttoned upholstered back, large scrolled padded arms, polished legs and castors. It may well be a ‘standard’ but there is nothing ‘standard’ about this gorgeous sofa – it is an elegant piece of furniture that simply oozes class. It will complete any selected living space. And if you prefer it can be provided with a full fluted skirt. With luxurious feather down cushions it is sublimely comfortable, overall it is a memorable and stunningly beautiful decorative piece.

Kristina Hero

For many people these days, Apartment living is a sensible choice. For older people the time has come to sell the family home. The kids have all grown up and left home, starting their own families. An apartment near the city provides convenience, comfort and relief from the maintenance of a large property. Equally, young professionals find it far more convenient to live close to the city and their employment.

The Wills Contemporary Sofa Collection provides a superb range of comfortable, stylish furniture admirably suited to Apartment living.
