Strathvale Furnishings Upholstery Workshop, based in Forfar, Angus, Scotland

Fabric renovations and re-covering using quality fabrics


Sofas and Chairs

Why renovate?

Many customers just love their furniture! Older types of chairs and sofas have a strong frame and are normally in good condition, so why buy new when you can re-cycle?

The sofa repaired and renovated as required and recovered in
fabric from the folium collection by Villa Nova

You get the chance to choose from a large selection of fabrics from well known manufacturers such as:- , J Brown, Voyage, Linn Bowman, Kirby House, Villa Nova, Moon and Kobe etc.

There is no rush to make a choice as you can take our fabric books home and choose at your leisure.

We can uprate the foams, padding, springs etc or change worn out feather cushions for new reflex foam with feather wraps.

We will guide you through the process of having your furniture transformed, giving advice on what fabrics are suitable.

In a right bad state

A neglected and unloved sofa before getting some desperately required attention from Strathvale Furnishing.
This sofa had been stored in a grain store and had to be almost taken back to the frame and rebuilt. New springswere required
on the roll back and modern horse hair materials used to bring back to life. No money was found but we did find 5 dead mice.

A striking and elegant example of the difference Strathvale Furnishing can make to old furniture.
