Upholstery of Furniture & Furnishings

KandA Interiors are skilled in repairing or restoring older furniture, replacing worn or damaged upholstery, and designing custom pieces to fit specific spaces or styles.


Upholstery is the term that relates to the materials used to cover and pad furniture, such as chairs, sofas, and other seating.

Upholstery also refers to the craft of working with these materials, which involves attaching the fabric or leather covering to the frame of the furniture and adding padding or stuffing to make the piece comfortable to sit on.

Upholstery materials can include a variety of fabrics, such as cotton, linen, wool, silk, or synthetic blends, as well as leather or vinyl. In addition to the covering material, upholstery may also include padding or stuffing, such as foam, cotton, or feathers, to provide cushioning and support.

Upholstery is an intricate and specialised craft, requiring skills such as measuring and cutting fabric, sewing, and working with tools to attach the fabric to the frame of the furniture.
