Fabric choices

We tend to prefer natural wools and linens in subdued colours when choosing upholstery for our display pieces but we can upholster our chairs and sofas in any fabric or leather to suit your own scheme. We have relationships with most of the major fabric suppliers so can source your choice of fabric for you or alternatively you can send it to us. Why not make a visit to the showroom or we can discuss over the phone.
