Richard recently recovered our Heals sofa, replacing the fabric with leather. We were quite nervous waiting to see what it might look like. It took us a while to decide on the leather and we'd also seen some poor results from other companies. Richard was confident it would look good and also suggested some design tweaks. The finished result is fantastic, looks better than it did when new! Craftsmanship is excellent, really can't fault anything. Agree with all the reviews below, including Richard being a nice guy to work with, friendly and re-assuring.
One of our sofas had developed a sag and squeak! Richard came to examine within a few days of contact. He immediately diagnosed the problem, which had probably been caused by the over-soft seat cushions. He took the sofa to his workshop where the sag was repaired, then refilled the seat cushions with a firmer foam to spread the load more evenly. Less than 24 hours later, we were sitting on a transformed sofa. We gave Richard the seat cushions from the other sofa to similarly refill, and collected these a day or so later.
Richard knows his stuff, is remarkably quick and - importantly - charges a very reasonable rate. I have no hesitation in heartily recommending him to anyone.
Richard & his staff are first class craftsmen and a business that you can trust to do a great job.
Our Red leather suite was in need of renovation, the seats & back supports required refilling and had gone soft. Richard responded to our request to quote on the same day and he provided a competitive price for the job which was precisely what we paid on completion. The finished article was just like new and looks fantastic. Start to finish, about 4 days.
Highly reccomended Business and a great company to deal with
Richard and sam are true artisans of their work. My leather sofa of 10years was sagging, springs had sprung and all the back supports had gone flat, in other words i needed a new 3 piece suite. Had a look at new sofa's and nothing to the same speck as what my suite once was. My mum had a rocking chair that needed restoring and once that was back she was trilled to bits and recommended Richard Williams to at least come out and see what could be done if anything to mine. Richard a lovely man came out, gave me a brilliant price, of what i considered was very reasonable, and my suite came back looking better so much better than it did when it was brand new!! It is so comfortable now, all i can say is i'm so impressed and to replace it now would cost me in excess of £4000 so what i paid for it to be refurbished is a fraction of that cost. Their service was quick and efficient and i have no qwarms in recommending Richard William upholstery to anyone. You will be so impressed at the quality of their work.!! My suite will last me more than what it has the first time round..see you in the next 15 years richard when it will probably need doing again.. Once again thank you to you and sam for for an excellent job done and at such a hhigh quality i couldnt be more happier!
Richard was quick to attend our house.
Within 24 hours he had repaired out sofa backs
Excellent work and very knowledgable
“I am very pleased with the standard of the craftsmanship of Richard Williams Upholstery as well as the pleasant, unhurried attitude when advising me on materials. My furniture was delivered upon completion with no further charge, which I consider a valuable service. I believe the work represented good value for money and I would, and will, commission him again and recommend him to others.”
“Richard Williams re upholstered two sofas and matching chair, plus six dining chairs. He replaced the fabric and interior cushioning, so the furniture is like new again – in fact, it’s probably even better than when we first bought it! We are delighted with the quality of his work and highly recommend the business.”
“Talented, efficient upholsterers are few and far between. Customers who are entrusting valuable and often sentimental pieces into the hands of an upholsterer need to have the utmost confidence in the craftsman. Richard is helpful, full of valuable advice and has a pleasant, confident manner that instils trust. Being a master of his niche craft, he transformed a dilapidated hundred year old sofa into a new piece of furniture – a real work of art.”
