Who we are 

Past and Present Upholstery is a family run business and was established in 1993. The complete aim of our service is to give the customer exactly what they desire. It could be a small button or a full refurbishment, we strive on customer satisfaction. We will come out on a home visit free of charge to view the item you require re upholstered. We have a large range of pattern books which can be left with you for as long as it takes you to choose your desired material. We have no salesmen, meaning, the person you will deal with will be the upholsterer who will undertake your job.

We can cover basically anything that you have. We will also repair furniture that may be damaged or replacing broken items, such as springs, cushions castors and the like. The personal touch is what we pride ourselves on and will fit in the work around your working day or whatever time suits you.

So if you need anything re upholstered repaired or replaced we are the people you need to contact.

A first class service! From the initial enquiry which was followed by an early and convenient consultation, it couldn’t have been improved.
