3 Reasons To Reupholster

At Hill Upholstery & Design, we are the number one choice when it comes to Essex upholstery – we have been commissioned with creating some truly stunning bespoke furniture for clients throughout Essex and London. However, it is not just bespoke furniture that we are famous for – we are also experts at adding new life to your old furniture with our reupholstery services. We have been thinking about the advantages of reupholstering furniture and why some of our customers choose to reupholster rather than buy new  – have a look at just 3 reasons to reupholster below.

Colour Scheme
If your room is looking dated, in need of a full refresh and needs a whole new lease of life, changing the colour scheme can make a huge difference. Instead of going on the hunt for new furniture to complement your new colour scheme, consider having your furniture reupholstered in a more modern fabric. Our upholstery team based in Fobbing, Essex use only the highest quality fabrics and materials and are able to bring a whole new lease of life to tired, old furniture – your guests won’t even realise it is your old furniture!

Save money
Choosing to reupholster your furniture will save you money and mean you don’t risk purchasing furniture that’s just not quite as comfortable as the last lot! We live in a ‘throw away’ society, so make the right environmental choice and reupholster!

Custom Designs
When you choose to reupholster rather than buy brand new furniture, you are not restricted to what the shops have to offer you. With a huge selection of top quality materials, we are confident we will have the perfect material to reupholster your furniture and transform the room it belongs in. You know the furniture already fits in the room, so just take the next step to updating it!

Chouara Tannery visit

At Hill Upholstery & Design, we use a wide variety of quality materials each day on all of our items to ensure the upholstery and re-upholstery work is the best quality it can be. We recently took a trip to Chouara Tannery, Morocco to see how leather is traditionally made!

The pictures below were taken in Chouara Tannery in Fez, which was built in the 11th Century and is the largest tannery in the city and a hugely popular tourist attraction.

The hides are still tanned using a mixture of cow’s urine, pigeon poo and lime and then they are dyed using natural colours – indigo for blue, poppies for red henna, for orange and saffron for the more expensive yellow.

We all agreed that the stench was incredible but worth it for the experience! It was great to see another side to the high quality materials that we use each and every day.

Take a look at some of our pictures below to see what happens during the tanning process!
