Good as new

Restore your tired and dated furniture to its former glory with help from the team at P&C Upholstery.

When thinking about changing the décor in our homes an option that’s easily overlooked is the prospect of re-upholstering furniture. Looking at your tired and worn sofa might be starting to make you feel like it’s time to ditch it and move on, but that doesn’t have to be the case. If the main structure is sound then re-upholstering could be the easier and cheaper option; giving you that new furniture feel without having to fork out for a complete replacement. Plus, re-upholstering means that if it’s a significant item of furniture, perhaps passed down through the family or discovered in an antique shop, you’re able to restore it to its former glory and continue to enjoy it for years to come.
