Ask Dave

If you need any upholstery job doing, just "Ask Dave"

With 50 years of experience in upholstery and furniture repair, I can help you to re-cover, repair and revitalise any piece of furniture for your home. 

I am based near Chipping Norton in Oxfordshire, just on the edge of the Cotswolds and I am here to help you with your upholstery and furniture repairs.


Alot of my experience was gained from furniture manufacturers including Wesley Barrell and Parker Knoll (from where I have gained over 25 years of expertise in the repair and renovation department before the factory in Chipping Norton closed down in 2004).

I take the utmost pride in what I do and so when working to your specific requirements and requests to repair, renovate and re-upholster any piece of your furniture, it is always to a very high quality.

A particular area my expertise is with traditional furniture. I am able to bring an old and worn item back to life with not only new upholstery, but also new or repaired internal elements such as webbing, padding or springs, strengthening the structures if needed and improving the polished finishes. So your furniture will look and feel like new again.

In addition to the re-upholstery services, I can supply custom made cushions and produce specific furniture made to your own specifications. Get in touch to discuss how I can help you.

Re-upholstering and repair services

Some modern furniture isn't as well-made as older traditional furniture. I can help you to restore the frame to make it last longer and it often costs less than buying new.

I can help with the following:

  • 3 piece suites
  • Arm chairs (including recliners)
  • Dining table chairs
  • Headboards
  • Foot and box stools, ottomans & one-off pieces
  • Frame repair, cleaning and polishing
  • Re-springing, re-webbing, re-stuffing

Custom made products

Bespoke items can be designed and created in such a way to match your existing furniture. New cushions can also be made in any size or shape so your old sofa will feel like new.

Even if your furniture has lost its original cushion, or it is damaged beyond repair, a new one can be custom made, and using a fabric of your choice, it will look beautiful once more.

I am able to help with your fabric sourcing and can provide you with samples or swatches if necessary. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with any questions you may have.
