The CHAIR REPAIR WORKSHOP, based in the picturesque Kent countryside, is a family business offering an expert and bespoke upholstery service from frame up design to recovering a treasured item.  Choose from the quality fabrics in the workshop or bring your own, your soon to be refreshed item will look stunning and last years to come.


The CHAIR REPAIR WORKSHOP  began with Keith back in 2002 an adept upholsterer who learned the trade at London Guildhall University (now London Metropolitan University), he is a true craftsman and has been entrusted to bring countless treasured pieces of furniture back to life.


Russell returned home to the family business after spending 5 years in Australia where his love of furniture led him to restore, build and sell pieces in his spare time. Now a confident and competent upholsterer in his own right he has taken the reigns and is excited where the business can grow and develop in the future.


The CHAIR REPAIR WORKSHOP has a vision to continue and develop the timeless craft of upholstery, restoring antiques and creating modern timeless classics.

 From Santa's Sleigh and antique Chippendale furniture to awnings at the Tate Modern Gallery and pub seating - no job is too big or too small.

When your piece of furniture is no longer fit for purpose we can strip it back to the frame and start again. We'll talk you through your options, be it a traditional route or a modern one, and help you with fabric selection. You'll be enjoying your custom piece in no time.


When all you need is a freshen up this is the perfect option. We'll take the old tired fabric off and replace it with a fresh look. Choose from a wide range of fabrics including Romo, Linwood, Sanderson and William Morris. Work with us to find the perfect look to refresh your treasured item.

Are you looking to undertake a project yourself but don't know where to pick up the materials? We are more than happy to supply you with the materials (and a little bit of advice if you ask nicely!)


What a super company! We had two large leather sofas which had sagged over time. They needed to re-webbed and the stuffing rejuvenated and topped up. Russell and Ian picked up the first one on a Monday and Keith back at the workshop did the repairs and it was returned on the Wednesday when they took the other one away. This was returned the next day. A wonderful job at a really good price. We would thoroughly recommend them.
