With lockdown causing all of us to spend much more time at home and indoors than normal, it may become obvious that the family Lounge Suite, the dining chairs or the occasional furniture is in dire need of some love and attention. Whether it’s recovering, new cushioning, re-springing or attention to the framing, Wills Furniture is the right choice in terms of restoration and reupholstery.
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.
Our artisans – upholsterers, machinists and seamstresses will repair and restore the entire piece of furniture, not just its coverings. The Wills team take prided in faithful restorations of exquisite heirloom pieces, recreating the luxury and comfort of the past for your enjoyment.
