Bespoke Solutions

At Upholstery Designs, the world is the customer’s oyster.

Our philosophy

Ian Blowman of Upholstery Designs says: “You want the perfect piece of furniture, and we want to provide it. Tell us what’s wrong with it and we’ll put it right, from the colour of the feet or the depth of the seat, to the type of springs or the filling of the cushions. We’ll help you try different sofas until we determine all the elements that will make your ideal sofa. Why not come and visit us to see what we can do for you?”

Our expertise means we can offer a high-quality bespoke service to our customers, adapting furniture to suit different heights, sizes, needs and preferences.

Going to extra lengths

The request: One of our customers had had a motorcycle accident and wanted a sofa that provided just the right support. His wife also wanted an extra-long sofa. We had a sofa they liked … but it didn’t quite fit the bill.

The solution: We had the sofa extended to make it longer and adapted the style to make the sofa more upright, offering better support. The seat was also made shorter from front to back, which also helped the gentleman to feel comfortable when sitting or rising from the sofa.

The height of taste

The request: One of our sofas was just right for a customer – except for the seat cushions, which she didn’t like. And if only the sofa could be a little higher!

The solution: Simple – we changed the seat cushions to ones she did like, increased the height by two inches, and made a couple of other requested tweaks to the finish. Happy customer!
