Restoration and re-upholstery

Restoration and re-upholstery services play a pivotal role in breathing new life into cherished furniture pieces, ensuring they not only regain their original beauty but also stand the test of time. These services involve meticulous craftsmanship, as skilled artisans work to repair, refinish, and reupholster furniture to its former glory. Whether it’s a vintage armchair with worn-out fabric or an antique wooden table in need of structural repairs, we employ a delicate balance of traditional techniques and modern methodologies.


Restoration refers to the process of returning something to its original or former condition, often involving the repair or renovation of items that have experienced damage, wear, or deterioration. This term is commonly associated with the preservation of furniture. At Hospitality Projects, we offer restoration services for many kinds of furnishings including chairs, tables, sofas and more.

Our restoration process


Re-upholstery is the process of replacing or recovering the upholstery of furniture, which includes the fabric or leather covering, padding, and sometimes the springs or webbing within the furniture piece. This service is often sought to refresh the appearance of furniture that is still structurally sound but has worn-out or outdated upholstery. Unlike restoration, re-upholstery refers specifically to the furnishing’s covering and padding.

Our Re-upholstery process

Why choose restoration and re-upholstery?


Preservation of Sentimental Value

Many pieces of furniture hold sentimental value, whether they are family heirlooms, antiques, or items with personal history. Restoration and re-upholstery allow individuals to preserve and continue enjoying these sentimental pieces rather than replacing them.


Environmental Sustainability

Choosing to restore and re-upholster furniture is an eco-friendly option. It reduces the demand for new raw materials, minimises waste, and helps to extend the lifespan of existing furniture, contributing to a more sustainable and responsible approach to consumption.



In many cases, restoring and re-upholstering furniture can be more cost-effective than purchasing new, high-quality pieces. While the initial investment might seem higher than buying new inexpensive furniture, the long-term benefits and the preservation of valuable items often outweigh the cost.
