The upholsterer sounds like the kind of trade that would have been common in the Middle Ages, when mass produced furniture wasn’t even a thought. Back then, soft furnishings were stuffed with grass, feathers and sawdust as well as animal hair. While it may sound like a trade that thrived around the times of blacksmiths and such, there are still an upholsterer in Edinburgh today. So what does the modern upholsterer do?
We all have soft furnishings in our homes – sofas, chairs, dining room chairs, stools and such. They tend to be well used and over time start to show their age. But say the furniture was expensive originally, maybe even an antique. You don’t want to just take it to the dump but it is looking dated or worn. The alternative is to speak to the Upholsterer about what can be done to save the furniture.
Central Upholstery is a local company offering a range of upholstery services in Edinburgh. This means they can take that tired looking sofa and completely replace the upholstery on it to make an item that looks as good as new. Or they can take the antique chair you have and repair the slight damage to the upholstery to ensure it looks as it was designed to once more.
