Upholstery Fabric

The amount of fabric required to upholster your chosen piece of bespoke furniture is displayed within our product descriptions & should be cut from a standard 4 foot 6 inches or 140cm minimum width roll. The fabric quantities required are considered valid for:- Upholstering without tufted button backs & where there is no pattern to be centered (otherwise 40% extra fabric must be added).
When choosing fabric consider how much use your piece of furniture is going to be used & select a fabric suitable for your needs. All our upholstery services are fully compliant with schedule 3 fire safety regulations. For certain COM fabric supplied we provide a barrier cloth inter-liner depending on where the piece is to be used.  Please contact us if you have any queries regarding the regulations. 

Disclaimer for velvet and silk
Some silks and velvets made from cotton and silk can be marked by the slightest touch. As all our furniture is handmade, the handling of fabric is unavoidable and therefore we cannot accept any responsibility or liability for the condition of these fabrics when used during manufacture.

All upholstered pieces are finished with a co-ordinated stud, braid, piping or hand made cords.

Stud upholstery nail trim; these are fancy upholstery nails that are fixed in strips. Real nails (fixing nails) are applied at intervals to fix the strip.

Piping; piping is an upholstery trim applied at the end of a job on the edge of the furniture frame. Single piping is most often used for cushions, scrolls or finishing off edges. Double piping is used to finish off edges as an alternative to braid or gimp (a form of flat braid).

Braid; used for many years, braid can be bent around round curves and corners and always finishes a piece of upholstered furniture in style.
