Interior Designers and Decorators pride themselves on presenting bespoke design. With furniture to achieve the beautiful results required to provide a stunning interior decor, it often comes down to having the right team of artisans, upholsterers and framers to create or customise the sofas, armchairs, ottomans, dining settings and bedheads presented to clients. The right team is Wills Furniture – still handcrafting and upholstering original furniture traditionally after 80 years.
Clients luxuriate in the look and feel of Wills Furniture. Whether selected from our carefully maintained Wills Collection or a one off bespoke design, Designers can be confident of superb quality, handcrafted furniture presented with an immaculate finish. Furniture as it’s meant to be – no cookie cutter or production line mass production, just pure finesse, skill and ultimately genuine comfort, pure luxury.
The Wills Collection offers a wide array of choices, both classic and contemporary. It’s not unusual when preparing a refreshed or renewed interior design that the designer requires flexibility in modifying a current item of furniture from our Wills Catalogue to suit the space it is intended for, be it size, height or features such as arms, piping, legs or castors. With the Wills team Designers can select variations in height, depth, cushion fill and overall comfort and feel.
Modular furniture can be produced to accurately fit spaces as specified.
In some cases clients may possess valuable heirloom antique furniture or period upholstered furniture in need of restoration. The Designer may wish to refresh these items and use and incorporate them in a new design.
At Wills Furniture, our highly trained craftsmen and artisans know and understand the requirements, materials and methodologies to be utilised in ensuring a genuine and authentic restoration of heirloom and period upholstered furniture.
This is a full restoration, not just a recovering. Our specialist craftsmen and women – upholsterers, machinists and seamstresses fully restore and repair your entire piece. Strappings, timberwork, hand springs, buttoning and studding are all undertaken and presented in as close to original format as possible. Wills Furniture takes pride in such faithful restorations to heirloom and period pieces and in recreating the luxury and comfort of the past.
The Wills team upholster and restore lounge suits, sofas, armchairs, occasional chairs, bedroom chairs, dining chairs, barstools and tub chairs, bedheads and ottomans of all types. We can also advise you on whether restoration vs a new piece is feasible for later period pieces. In many cases, Furniture restored by Wills will leave our workshop in much better shape than that of its original manufacture. Furniture restored and refurbished by Wills becomes a featured piece of furniture that can lift a whole design.
Our Workshop and artisans working in our Hawthorn factory enjoy a connection with the craftsmanship and artisanship of earlier times through the direction of Paul Newham, the son of the original upholsterers from the Newham family who had owned and operated Wills Furniture for over 80 years. Paul has ensured that the original rigid quality standards applied in the past are still adhered to today, ensuring the same quality and standard of excellence is still achieved on every piece of Wills Furniture today across the entire Wills Collection.
