Traditional Upholstery and Reupholstery

Wheathills' upholsterers maintain a strong tradition when restoring upholstered antique furniture using tacks instead of staples, horsehair and fibre as a sensitive alternative to foam and finally taking the time to individually sew every spring for maximum comfort and strength.

Almost every job is finished to the white calico stage before the final fabric is chosen, which can be chosen from our extensive stock or from an alternative source. Whatever the choice, we work with you to achieve the desired finish in the full knowledge that the traditional methods employed have stood the test of time and will continue to provide peerless service for many years to come.
