We are a London-based Upholsterer and Soft Furnishing Expert with over 35 years of experience


From traditional to contemporary, Classic Upholstery provides a quality, timely and good value upholstery service for you or your company.

Classic Upholstery specialise in upholstery, and re-upholstery of sofas, chairs, cushions, headboards and benches. We also offer bespoke, handmade curtain and blinds service. We cover London and the surrounding areas for your convenience, so please don't hesitate to get in touch.


Whether your sofa or chair is in good shape under the fabric, or if it needs work inside (such as re-webbing, re-springing, re-filling or re-cushioning), it is often a quick process to bring it back to new, and mostly cheaper than a replacement item. Using modern materials with traditional skills and experience can even give you a better product than the original!

If you have a lumpy old sofa, a frayed chair, or newer sofa that isn't quite right for your house, give it another chance before sentencing it to the skip. If the frame has lasted ten years or more, it's probably good for another ten once re-upholstered with us. We have expertise a huge number of areas, including:

  • Domestic and Commercial Sofas, Beds, Chairs and Benches
  • Cushions, Fabric panels, Covers and Bed Spreads
  • Leather recovery, custom seating and bespoke designs
  • Plain stitching, piping, material selection and sourcing
  • And a whole list of other things from Antiques and Ottomans to Head Boards and Roman Blinds

Classic Upholstery has worked alongside a prestigious team of designers to reupholster furniture for mainstream companies such as Hilton, helping ensure their high quality d├ęcor was looking as good as possible. Classic Upholstery also helped renovate furniture from the Cutty Sark, a famous British clipper ship built on the Clyde in 1869, after it suffered from a serious fire, leaving a smell of burnt timber throughout. We helped restore some of the furniture and have marked a pin point of British history in the process!
