This footstool had unfortunately been wrecked when a tea tray decided to leave it's mark. A little behind the scenes shot of the workshop while the team worked on this deep button lush footstool. A great matching accessory for this sofa and footstool plus a few scatter pillows in a glam champagne fabric.

These curtains are only fitting for a Windsor postcode - they wouldn't look out of place in a palace! Three sets of red velvet pencil pleat curtains made to the clients specifications.

These silk curtains had a bad case of sunburn! Sunlight rots natural fibres including cotton especially if they are exposed like this tragic pair. We magically repaired these three sets of silk curtains using the clients existing fabric. 

"JAI gave our curtains another lease of life, we are thrilled that they will hopefully have another 20 years in them"

Beautiful in Blue! A reupholster of this Parker Knoll armchair and dining chairs. The linen based fabric was duck egg blue to match her Sanderson chairs. When the chairs are all in place we strongly recommend finishing it off with a roman blind. This amazing fabric is William Morris & Co - Strawberry Thief - a tasty way to dress a window!

 

Thank you so much we are so pleased with the work carried out on our furniture , and thank you for being so reliable and efficient. Best wishes Sheila and Paul xx

Not quite a royal one but this much loved chair was handed down from father to son. Ken’s Dad, a GP, was downsizing and, as such, our client inherited this chair which we think you’ll agree looked great once JAI were done with it.

A client of ours quite some time ago - it’s been 17yrs and her sofa is still looking as good as new. Good quality really does last.

 

Miranda wanted a change of colour and texture after many years of sitting on cold black vinyl. We suggested this stylish colour, and a much nicer feel, a subtle change but Miranda said, "Love the bottle green thanks JAI'

We do love a really beautiful chair and this pair or Ercols didn't disappoint. They were in need of rewebbing on the bases and rewarding of the backs pads, the pads on the seats were replaced and the whole chair was reupholstered in this cambio turquoise Covertex fabric. A couple of scatter pillows all colour matched to this stunning wallpaper and we, and Kirsten and Jason were excited to have their chairs back and very pleased with the outcome.

This delightful nursing chair was picked up by our client, Gabrielle, at a flea market and needed a lot of love. Our team set to work rewarding and reseating in horse hair. Our client requested a skirt to really enhance the vintage feel of this piece and an Ian Mankin ticking fabric in silver . Our attention to detail really shows here with all reupholstery done as it would have been in the Victorian era, our team are sticklers for detail and rightly so - that's why our clients love us so much!

 

Here's a few shots of the chair (pre rescue!) and in our workshop. Gabrielle welcomed a baby boy over Christmas who will hopefully enjoy many happy hour in the chair.
