Refresh, Refurbish and Renew with Wills Bisgrove now

Many people are fortunate to retain either antique or older period furniture in their homes passed down through generations. It often becomes obvious that the time has come for, not just the upholstered fabrics or leather to be replaced, but also requiring attention are the springs, the wadding and the cushioning.  And therein lies the conundrum. Where can the type of Artisans and skilled Craftspeople to complete such a task be found? The answer is simple – call Wills Bisgrove, the renowned leaders in fine furniture restoration. 

Whether it is a classic antique, a mid-century modern or a recent contemporary piece, refreshing with new fabric or leather can instantly lift the appearance and comfort of old furniture pieces. Why not consider one of the newer fabrics on offer to bring currency and rejuvenation to your favourite sofa, armchairs and dining chairs. These days Interior Designers often arrange such makeovers adding new life and vibrancy to otherwise classic designs and furniture styles.

Naturally at Wills Bisgrove we don’t just facilitate a change in the coverings alone. Worn out springs, wadding and foam or down cushioning will be replaced prior to recovering.

Now is a great time to browse the fabric house websites to see what’s new and what’s available. Imagine your older, classic lounge suite refreshed and renewed.

At Wills Bisgrove Furniture we work with leading fabric and textile suppliers. Here is a list for you to visit and browse to make your selection.

Each company has a website with extensive images of fabrics, textures, colours and designs available. Take the time to visit and browse their sites. There is a world of vibrancy and texture available in a myriad range of fabrics. You, your Designer or Decorator can select the right fabric to suit your individual taste, and achieve the look, the style, the comfort you wish to achieve.

Naturally there will be some situations where re-covering or refurbishment simply isn’t practical – insect damage, water damage, wood rot. In that case it’s the perfect opportunity to make a selection from our extensive Wills Bisgrove Collection and enjoy many years of comfort, luxury and exquisite design.

The Wills Bisgrove Collection provides a range of beautiful, upholstered furniture, both traditional and contemporary, from which to choose.
