Our Workshop


We welcome commissions from clients.

We hope to inspire, advise & engage our clients to create something beautiful & meaningful using sustainable materials & a real love for all things upholstery!!

If you have an upholstery project in mind, either being  residential or commercial we are happy to talk about ideas & creative solutions, using traditional or modern upholstery methods. Our wide range of skills runs from a simple to recover to ‘Ironback’ Victorian chair re-builds & Mid Century pieces, of all shapes & sizes.

It can be a minefield finding the right fabric for a project but we will guide you through that process making sure your pieces adhere to UK fire regulations, suitability. Below is a link to some of the companies we work closely with.




Here’s what some of our clients say about us & if you would like to talk to us about a project then get in touch.

“Louise rebuilt the battered old chair from scratch with the finest traditional materials and great attention to detail.

She has completely transformed it.

It’s a beautiful addition to my studio.” 

R. Martinez

“I have a unique antique clergyman’s chair that dates back to 1837. Inevitably, from time to time, the upholstery needs to be refurbished.I called on Louise and was immediately struck by her competent efficiency, impressed with her superb work and I shall certainly be calling on her again.” – Dr J Goodfield 

Louise took on the restoration of some family pieces by Earnest Race & Arne Jacobsen, she spent time meticulously researching to make sure the materials used were faithful to the originals. I am delighted by the lease of life she has given these old friends & I would wholeheartedly recommend Sussex Upholstery. – S Granelli
