Unseen Icons Upholstery Services


We like to say we specialise in creating bold, beautiful statement pieces for the home, from our dedicated upholstery studio in Writtle, Essex. But the truth is, what we do is so much bigger than that. So, so much bigger.  So yes, we can reupholster your old sofa or chair. And yes, we take old furniture and breathe new life into it.   But we pride ourselves on bringing something extra to the table. How? By hunting out the best independent textile designers to source the fabrics that are designed to make your soul sing.

If you have a piece of furniture you’d love to have reupholstered then give us a shout!  You can email, phone or even message us on Instagram. We’re always ready to chat through ideas with you and if you can provide us with photographs, we’re happy to give you a quote for the work required.

Once you have received your quote, the next step would be to book you in to visit our studio to explore fabric ideas and options. It’s our mission to spark awe and ignite joy in everything we do, so we take the time to get to know you. We’ll encourage you to be brave in your use of pattern, print and colour. We’ll listen to what you’re saying and gently guide you till you find the ‘one’. The one that will fill you with joy every single time you look at it. We’ll even give you samples of the fabric to take away so you can see how it will look in your home.

When the fabric decision has been made, we will book your project into the diary and arrange for the collection of the piece if required. If you don’t already own the perfect piece but have something in mind, we also offer a sourcing service to find it for you.

“Not only are these pieces visually stunning, they also contribute to the preservation of our planet. Something that is of growing importance in today’s consumerist world.”
