Modern upholstery is faster than traditional and requires a different skill set. Synthetic upholstery materials are used rather than organic, therefore it has economical benefits for those who seek swift, more affordable re-upholstery results. Amongst the above perks, modern methods achieve more streamlined and crisp look due to the foam that’s used for padding.

Olga is attentive to the ways you look to integrate renovated pieces into your interior space so she’d be delighted to give advice on colours, prints and textures of fabrics if required. For those based in East London, home visits are possible to arrange for a closer assessment and more precise cost estimation.
