As the year that has been like no other draws to a close, we would like to express our gratitude to our loyal clients and customers for their ongoing support and continuing business. With the reopening of our factory, studio and workshop post-covid, we have simply been extraordinarily busy with a myriad of orders and deliveries.
The Wills Furniture Showroom, Studios and Workshop will be closing for the Christmas – New Year break on Wednesday the 23rd of December at midday. We will be reopening for business on Monday the 18th of January at 9am.
Christmas and New Year is often the time families discover their need for repairs to their much loved heirloom, classic and period furniture. It may be with extra guests that it becomes obvious there is the need to re-upholster that loved lounge suite, sofa or armchair. Or possibly it’s a sofa at the Beach house that has succumbed to the years of family holidays.
The solution is simple. Go to the Wills Furniture Website and click on the Re-upholster icon.
The Wills team will then contact you to appraise your treasured and loved piece of furniture.
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. At Wills, we reupholster and repair lounge suites, sofas, dining chairs, bedheads and ottomans, returning them to you in better condition probably than when first built. It becomes that feature piece of furniture you are simply proud to own and display, but more importantly to sit on 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 identifies a Wills Furniture creation or restoration.
