With all the signs being positive, the Wills Furniture Showroom has re-opened on Wednesday the 28th of October. We certainly welcome it and invite all our clients and customers to visit to discuss your project and furniture needs.
The Wills Collection is a brilliant selection of both Classic and Contemporary upholstered furniture. The Wills Furniture company has been operational now for over 80 years. All Wills Furniture is handcrafted, hand built at our Hawthorn Studio and Workshop at 6 Guest St Hawthorn, situated behind out showrooms. Furniture making and upholstery are very precise skills handed down over many generations. Wills Furniture is all 100% Australian made, utilising Australian materials wherever possible.
At Wills we not only create beautiful handmade furniture. We are also renowned for restoring and rejuvenating classic and antique furniture from all eras.
After 90 or 100 years, the older Sofa, armchair or occasional chair you own probably needs some serious restoration.
Fabrics fade and wear, springs lose their strength and strapping and webbing simply deteriorate. Repaired and restored correctly, the piece maintains its value and appearance; done improperly and it’s easy to ruin very valuable antiques and heirloom furniture.
Your best resource for quality restoration is Wills Furniture, the experts in furniture restoration and reupholstering. Using traditional methods and the finest quality materials, Wills can rejuvenate older family favourites ensuring many more years of usage with comfort, quality and skill.
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 and return it to you in pristine condition.
Our artisans – upholsterers, machinists and seamstresses 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. At Wills, we reupholster and repair lounge suites, sofas, dining chairs, bedheads and ottomans, returning them to you in better condition in all probability than when first built. It becomes that feature piece of furniture you are simply proud to own and display, but more importantly sit upon and enjoy.
Wills Furniture maintains a strong connection with the craftsmanship and artisanship of the trade in earlier times through the stewardship and direction of Paul Newham, the son of the original upholsterers from the Newham family – the creators of the Wills Furniture range. The same rigid quality standards of the original factory are maintained today ensuring the same gold stamp of excellence that identifies a Wills Furniture creation or restoration.
