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

Renovation of Chairs and Sofas.

Using the finest Scottish leathers, we also re-cover in
"World Wide Leather" when required.

Why renovate?

Some of the work we did for 'Bar10' in Forfar Many customers just love their seating! 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?

You get the chance to choose leather from Andrew Muirhead that is known World wide for superb quality.

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

All leather leaves our workshop with protection cream applied and most customers are given a Leather care kit. The picture to the right is by kind permission of Bar 10 in Forfar of the new Cabinet Rooms where we covered the bench seating in leather to match the downstairs sofas.
