Hendron & Company offer a free design consultation to discuss fabrics and styling. We’ll be happy to visit you at home, discuss a project from a photograph you send us or arrange a meeting by appointment at our workshop. From the initial consultation, we aim to create a finished upholstery piece that reflects your style to your agreed specifications.
Throughout the process, we will guide you to sympathetically restore or re-imagine your item of furniture. There will be a solution for you; we work to your budget, style and comfort setting. Our skills and craftsmanship allow us to give your antique, vintage or modern furniture a new life in your home.
We can bring any mid-century or modern upholstery back to life using high quality and locally sourced materials.
Our skills and techniques using materials such as horse hair, hessian and hand stitching with linen twine has been used for centuries. This provides a foundation that will last a lifetime.
All cushions, bolsters, box cushions and floor cushions are made to measure. We are happy to discuss your soft furnishing project. We work with feathers, wool and polyester fillings – each has its own merit and you will have a preference.
We use Moon, Swaffer, Clarke and Clarke, Johnston's of Elgin, Isle of Mill and Bute fabrics (to name a few!) and use a flame retardant upholstery wool felt barrier fabric on all upholstery. We recommend fabrics that offer good wear (Martindate rub tests on fabrics indicate how different fabrics are suited to specific uses and how they will wear over time.) We can help you source the perfect fabric to suit your style and budget.
We can help remove scratches, water damage and light burns as well as repairing small structural breakages.
SHOW WOOD FINISHING AND PAINT
Our wood finishing skills using waxes and oils can help revive and strengthen your furniture. Adding colour is a great option when re-dressing an item.
