Transform your furniture

Recently at Sophie Sews we have been inundated with requests for bespoke cushions and re-upholstery services. It’s always so exciting to take on a new project incorporating our love for curtains and fabrics, with a client's dream of having furniture that compliments this perfectly.

If you have an old armchair or even a sofa that’s falling apart at the seams, but you just can’t bear to part with it, our reupholstery services may be exactly what you’re looking for. This lovely client gave us the chance to renew their gorgeous French style armchair in this beautiful Clarke & Clarke Martello velvet with cream piping. Grey upholstery works well in so many spaces due to its neutral tones, but a lovely contrasting piping will always add a touch of elegance to any piece of furniture.

Everyone has that one awkward space in their home they’re never quite sure what to do with. Whether it’s that little nook in your hallway, or that space that never gets used in your spare room, we love how often our clients' solution to this problem is a beautiful seating area. A simple box seat cushion can make any awkward space the perfect little reading nook and really utilises the space in your home. This beautiful box seat cushion with matching roman blind, upholstered in Art of the Loom fabric, really brought to life this space making it both lovely to look at and practical, the perfect combination!

If it is your outdoor space in need of a refresh, why not have your outdoor seating or dining set reupholstered? Pictured below is a gorgeous lounge area which is now ready for all those late night summer parties. Upholstered in Warwick Mallacoota Ocean which is an easy care fabric, we’ve brought a fresh new look to this outside lounging area with our re-upholstery service; meaning this lovely space is now ready for many more years of garden parties to come.

For more information about our bespoke re-upholstery services, please get in touch via or you can call us on 01483 598056. Please also feel free to pop by our shop to speak to one of our lovely team members in person, we’re open 9:30am - 5pm Monday to Friday and 9:30 - 4pm on Saturdays.
