The Upholstery Process


Strip down.
We will meticulously disassemble your furniture and strip away all of the original fabric.


Structure repair and inspection.
We will examine the structure, and any repairs needed will be made; joints will be glued, dowelled, tightened, or fastened as required.


Webbing and strings.
Any webbing and springs which need to be changed will be done so.


Then we’ll start putting the layers back together.
Stuffing and padding are inspected and changed as needed.


Sewing and cutting.
Your selected fabric is measured, cut, and sewed to form with a repaired frame and cushioning.


Depending on your preferences, the cloth outer shell is sewed together and attached to the structure using classic or contemporary upholstery techniques.


Finally, the cushion coverings are fitted with your selected cushion inside or original cushions.

Veronica McGuire

“What a fantastic company. Found them by chance when looking for an upholsterer. Very knowledgable, loads of good advise & materials to pick from to. Furniture was all returned quicker than estimated and it’s like having brand new sofa, chairs & dinning room chairs to. Delighted with the company & service provided.”

Rebecca Duff

“Delighted with the workmanship, had an old ( smokers chair as it was called years ago) which was nearly dumped a few times, so glad we never. Nu -rest transformed it and it looks amazing. Now takes pride of place in lounge. Lovely people to deal with, would highly recommend”

Linda Brown

“Excellent company to do business with. Quality workmanship. Excellent customer service and quick delivery. 6 Dining Chairs recovered and now look as good – or even better than – as new. Would definitely recommend this company.”

Joan Buchanan

“Such a professional company with superb customer service!
I was a bit sceptical about having our cuddle chair recovered as I find that when most soft furnishings are redone it is very obvious. However our chair has been returned (ahead of schedule) looking better than when it went! The finish and attention to detail is excellent. I would highly recommend Nu-Rest to anyone looking for a quality upholsterer.”
