‘Hello Wills Bisgrove,

Just a note to let you know we have finally unpacked the sofa, 2 armchairs and upholstered bedheads (and window seat cushion) for the Beach House Project – and to thank you and say how pleased I am with them and how lovely they are. They look beautiful.

I am yet to see the pieces in the most recent order – renovation end now likely to be October – so am looking forward to seeing those too. 

Kind regards,

Nicola Lawrence

Restoration to Original Condition? Trust Wills Bisgrove to Care for your Valuable and Antique Classic Furniture.

For those fortunate enough to own beautiful antique and classic furniture, there comes a time when it’s necessary to restore it, its fabrics, upholstery (springs and wadding) and often the framing to allow for its continual usage and display. The conundrum is who should you commission to carry out such delicate restorations and repairs? The answer is simple – the only destination to consider is Wills Bisgrove

The Wills Bisgrove team is a collective of artisans offering a truly traditional approach to the renovation and repair of Classic and period Furniture. With 80 years’ experience in furniture making and repair, the Wills Bisgrove team rely on tried and true traditional methodologies utilising premium materials. Hand tied Stainless Steel Springs, featherdown or high quality memory foam, F1 Hardwoods for framing, brass and stainless steel castors, but always in keeping with the original manufacture and build of your heirloom piece.

Maybe, but firstly is it really worth restoring? In many cases the answer is sadly ‘no’, but for those rarer cases where such rejuvenation is both feasible and desirable. The Wills Bisgrove team are the right people to bring your treasured item back to life.

The Wills Bisgrove team are genuine craftsmen and women. Artisans who really understand upholstery and traditional furniture. A quick assessment on the framing, quality and fabric or leather replacement provides the answers on a financial basis.

Some items that are genuine antiques are certainly worth the investment. others such as rundown units from the ‘50s and ‘60s are probably better replaced.

Such restorations are a strong suit with the Wills Bisgrove Furniture team. The team will replace the webbing, springs, and fabric, strengthen the framing and provide new cushioning, castors and armrests. All work is carried out using traditional methods and materials.

Select The Fabrics, Leathers, Colours and Finishings with Wills Bisgrove.

The key to ensuring a simply stunning, beautiful interior design is to enjoy the freedom of selecting the fabrics, colours, fine leathers and accessories required. When choosing your upholstered furniture, take the time to browse the Wills Bisgrove Collection and select the style, the design that you desire from our extensive catalogue of both classic and contemporary upholstered furniture. Your Interior Designer can then spend time with our team of Artisans to ensure your Bespoke designs are faithfully crafted by the Wills Bisgrove team, meeting and exceeding your expectations. 

When choosing premium handcrafted, hand-built furniture, you and your designer can select from the fabrics and leathers available through Wills Bisgrove from Australia’s and the world’s leading suppliers.

So let’s discuss fabrics. Interior Designers consider a number of factors when determining the right fabric to suit your selection from our exclusive Wills Bisgrove Collection.

For a designer its often somewhat imperious to select a delicate silk or a pure white linen. However good designers realise their clients must live with the fabric selected and it may be the fabric is determined by the potential use of the furniture, its location and the degree of traffic a room may experience. Often choosing an easy to maintain fabric can be a better long term choice.

Here is a list of fabrics, both Natural and Synthetic reprinted from the Houzz.com.au website. It is a useful guide and at Wills Bisgrove Furniture we consider it reasonably accurate and useful.

  • Cotton is durable and resistant to wear and fading, but not as resistant to dirt and wrinkling. Cotton can go from casual to formal depending on the weave.
  • Cotton blends are slightly more durable than cotton due to the mix of additional fibres.
  • Leather is durable and functional. It wears well and gets better with age.
  • Linen is resistant to pilling and fading. It provides a crisp and casual look to furniture. However, it wrinkles and shows dirt easily.
  • Silk is elegant and adds a sophisticated and formal touch to furniture. Due to its delicacy, it’s best for light use and requires professional cleaning.
  • Wool blends with synthetic fibre for easier maintenance. It’s durable while also being resistant to pilling, fading, wrinkling and soil.
  • Acetate is developed as imitation silk, and is resistant to pilling and shrinking; however, it doesn’t hold up well for everyday use due to its tendency to wear, wrinkle and fade in the sun.
  • Acrylic is developed as imitation wool and may pill easily if not of high quality. However, it’s softer than natural wool, and is resistant to wear, wrinkling, dirt and fading.
  • Microfibre fabric is made from polyester fibres, is similar to suede, and easy to maintain.
  • Nylon is often blended with other fibres, creating a durable fabric that won’t wrinkle or soil but may fade and pill.
  • Polyester is usually found in a blend with other fibres, and is resistant to wrinkling and fading.
  • Rayon, though prone to wrinkling, is durable and affordable.
  • Vinyl is durable and a more affordable option compared to leather.

Functionality and Reality

A clever designer will select fabric that not only looks superb but also wears well, is easy to maintain yet synchronises well with the style of the furniture and the decor and feel of the room you have selected.

Houzz advises:

Neutral tones and floral prints work well in a traditional space, while bright colours and bold patterns give off a more contemporary vibe. Your lifestyle also dictates your design. Here are four quick questions to ask while browsing upholstery fabric online:

• How long is this upholstery meant to last?
• How often will you clean and iron it?
• Where do you plan to use it – indoors or outdoors?
• Which style of furniture pieces is this upholstery meant for?

At Wills Bisgrove Furniture we always advise our designers on fabrics and their properties, recommending the best in looks, appearance, quality and maintenance, ensuring the longevity and durability matches the appearances of the fabrics selected.

The choice is yours. Let it reflect your personality, your home and your vision.
