Take a seat


Upholstering is a time-honoured skill and has been practised by artisans long before the current upcycling trend came along.
At the family-run A Little Furniture Shop in Shrewsbury, upholstery expert Mark Swain brings 30 years of experience to restoring antique and vintage sofas and chairs, tackling everything from Danish teak mid-century pieces to original G Plan chairs.
‘All our sofas and chairs are stripped back to the frame, with the frame repaired if required, and are then reupholstered in high quality fabrics, which also comply with modern fire regulations,’ explains Mark’s partner and shop manager Heather Maskill.

‘We prefer to use natural materials and often use British wool. All our fabrics have a good abrasion test, as we like to make sure our furniture will stand the test of time. Finally, the facings and piping are all hand-stitched on.
‘We’ve been running the shop for 17 years now and each piece we produce is individual and unique; we pride ourselves on attention to detail.’
