IBIS hotel in Manchester City Centre are a repeat customer of ours as we have done various different jobs throughout the hotel. This job is one we have previously done for the hotel, however this time; they wanted the chairs to look slightly different and colourful! Previously the full chairs were re-upholstered in Grey Faux Leather, but this time, the outside and inside arms of the chairs were to be re-upholstered in Red & Yellow fabric.

For this project, we had to upholster a number of panels that were to be upholstered and used in the reception area of One Piccadilly in Manchester City Centre. The panels had a thin layer of foam applied to them, and they were then upholstered in various different colours as specified by the client. They were all the same height but each varied in length.

We were approached by a local company who were planning to open up a new Ice Cream & Dessert Bar - Sweet & Smooth, and wanted us to manufacture some new fixed seating.The owners had already had some joinery work done for the fixed seating but unfortunately wasn’t suitable for any seating to be added. We had to then manufacture a new frame for the seating.

Ultrafabrics are a UK supplier of high quality polyurethane fabrics. They were showcasing at an exhibition where they needed some large panels upholstering and a ‘frame’ manufacturing to sit around the panels. The panels were all upholstered in Ultrafabrics fabrics to display the variety of their products. We also manufactured a patchwork tablecloth out of the remaining fabric.

We were approached by a shopfitting company to upholster an area of fixed seating for a reception area at a dentist in Manchester City Centre.The job had to be completed out-of-hours and with a quick turnaround as the dentist is always busy and occupied. We had to supply alternative seating for the reception area whilst the existing seating was being re-upholstered. The seating was re-upholstered in Faux Leather with the colour matching as close to the Blue in the Bupa logo!

We were approached by a restaurant owner to re-upholster some existing seating in an Indian Restaurant Delhi Street, Chester. The client chose a Deep Buttoned style for the back of the seating, teamed with a Plain seat. The seating needed new foam as the existing foam was starting to perish and ‘dip’ in places. A brushed Faux Leather was chosen in a Copper colour, which matched perfectly to the new décor in the restaurant.

For this project, we completed all seat bases for the existing fixed seating at House Restaurant & Bar. The client chose a Cream diamond stitched Faux Leather for the indoor seating and the same fabric for the outdoor seating but in a Neutral colour.

We were approached by a local shopfitting company to supply some fixed seating for the refurbishment of Vintage Ambiance in Monton. Vintage Ambiance is a tearoom by day and a restaurant by night. Serving items from hot chocolates to cocktails!

In September 2017, Head Over Heels were having a huge refurbishment at their Chorlton branch. In three weeks, we manufactured sofas on wheels, re-upholstered existing sofas and booth seating, and also manufactured new booth seating for new areas they were creating – all upholstered in various amazing fabrics and colours!

We were approached by a local shopfitting company to manufacture and upholster a number of freestanding settees for a client of theirs who are upgrading a number of their office buildings throughout the UK, the first phase was for Riverside Court in Wilmslow. The client had a design in mind of what they were looking to achieve for the settees – we just had to bring their design to life! We had a local furniture maker manufacture the frames for the settees, it was then our job to apply the foam and upholster them. We also had to manufacture Bolster Cushions for the settees in a contrasting fabric.
