A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year From All of the Team at Wills Bisgrove Furniture

At the start of 2021 if you had told us that we are about to do a repeat of 2020, in all probability no-one would have believed you.  Sometimes life is stranger than fiction. At Wills Bisgrove we managed to launch our new business merger, move to new premises and successfully re-open with the lifting of lockdown restrictions. Let’s hope 2022, with nearly everyone vaccinated proves to be an exciting and profitable year. Once again, a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all of us here at Wills Bisgrove.

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 17th 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. Contact Wills Bisgrove team on 03 9815 0111. The Wills Bisgrove team will then 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 Bisgrove team can advise you of a suitable replacement piece.

Wills Bisgrove 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 Bisgrove team take prided in faithful restorations of exquisite heirloom pieces, recreating the luxury and comfort of the past for your enjoyment. At Wills Bisgrove, 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 Bisgrove 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 Bisgrove Furniture range. The same rigid quality standards of the original factory are maintained today ensuring the same gold stamp of excellence identifies a Wills Bisgrove Furniture creation or restoration.
