Refresh and Renew with Wills Furniture

Often as the children grow up and move on to their own lives, it’s time to refresh and renew your living spaces. Alternatively it could be that you’ve moved into a new property and it’s now the time to determine just how your new home will look, what comforts you desire and how your new lounge suite and living area and bedroom furniture can reflect your taste. Here’s a beautiful home in Camberwell that has been dressed and styled by Newham Interiors, for your consideration.



Essentially the Sofa and Ottoman are bespoke creations based upon items from the Wills Furniture Collection. Leather selected for the sofas is from Furnishing Networks and is called ‘Pista’, the colour is Marrone, in a rich brown tan. The fabric used to dress the Ottoman and scatters comes from Unique Fabrics and is known as ‘Panier’ in the colour Blackberry.


The Sofas are set off against the two Macquarie chairs dressed in a fabric from William Morris called ‘Bramble’ in the colour Oatmeal/Indigo.


And finally the scatter cushions are dressed in Westbury’s Cherbourg Linen in the colour Lagoon.


From the Wills Bedhead range, pictured is a customised Bedhead and bedbase. The bedhead fabric is a Warwick fabric called Haven, in the colour Ash.


Don’t forget, all Wills Bedheads in its standard range currently attract a 50% discount, valid until July 31st 2019,

Wills Furniture – It’s simply the best.

Restoring Fine Furniture requires skill and expertise – Ask Wills Furniture.


For many people there comes a time when they are faced with a dilemma. That beautiful period piece of upholstered furniture – a lounge suite, sofa, armchair or occasional chair – is looking tired and worn. The question is whether it’s worth restoring. In many cases it definitely is. But it requires a deft touch and real understanding of the framing, upholstery and fabrics. You need expert advice – call Wills Furniture and ensure a proper assessment of what could truly be a valuable heirloom or antique. Or simply an exquisite vintage piece of furniture.


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.

From our Collection, we present:

This includes one-off modular furniture, ottomans, bench seating, traditional sofas and chairs. In short Wills will provide a superb rendition of the plans and designs developed by the designers, decorators and architects on each occasion.
