From Classic to Antiques
Within our upholstery shop we distinguish between classic and modern upholstery.
With classic furniture upholstery you can think of an old armchair from your grandparents or an antique armchair or sofa. The basis of this furniture is a very solid beech hull that was previously made entirely by hand. With different materials, such as girths, horse hair, spiral springs, crin, jute, etc., people used to make a complete seating furniture from a bare body. Furniture made in this way still exists. Classic furniture upholstery is conventional and very labor-intensive.
After removing the old upholstery, it is checked whether the interior is still in order and whether the connections of the hull are still tight. If the connections are not good, they will be glued, and if the springs are slack or worn, we will replace them with new coil springs.
If the chair or sofa is in bad condition, we upholster the furniture all over again in the traditional way from the bare body. Every time the result is surprising. Of er nu gekozen wordt voor een traditionele stof uit de collectie van Fabricut of voor een stof met een moderne uitstraling van Linwood, het meubel ziet er weer als nieuw uit en gaat weer voor jaren mee.
From Modern to Design
Modern furniture upholstery is often used for seating furniture from after 1950. In our furniture upholstery we then use synthetic foams, staples and a wide range of parts including elastic webbing to renew the whole.
Modern reupholstering of chairs is not always easy, because the seating furniture was often mass-produced, and then completely different techniques are used than traditional upholstery. The rounder shapes make it easy to process polyether or cold foam is often the best solution, as you can model these materials perfectly. Modern techniques are just as good as traditional techniques for achieving a high level of sustainability. We have an extensive collection of modern upholstery fabrics from De Ploeg , Svensson , Danisch Art Weaving , etc.
