Bespoke Upholstery & Re-upholstery Services for London and Home Counties

On this page, we’ve looked to provide some information on each of the areas in which our upholsterers assist clients. Please keep in mind that we offer all of the below services to homeowners and companies within a 50 mile radius of our Croydon base, and will collect/deliver any upholstery we’ve made or restored for you. If you have any specific questions regarding our re-upholstery or are merely seeking some friendly and professional advice, don’t hesitate to give the Hennis Upholstery team a call.

Our Upholstery Services Explained

This service is a useful solution to a few different problems. Firstly, re-upholstery can bring new life to tired old furniture that is showing its age. Our upholsterers can replace springs, webbing, stuffing and even the frame to restore it to its former glory. This is cheaper than buying replacement furniture, and also means you don’t have to do-away with a piece that holds sentimental value, purely because it’s seen better days. After we’ve completed re-upholstery you’ll have your beloved furniture back in your home, looking like the day you bought it. What’s more, it’ll offer more support that it did before, making it more comfortable to use.

Another way in which re-upholstery can come in handy is in replacing furniture fabric with something that matches a new colour/design scheme. That way you don’t have to get rid of furniture you like, just because its colour clashes with the wider room. Re-upholstery usually takes between 7-10 days, depending on the job and how busy we are. We can provide re-upholstery for sofas, dining chairs, ottomans, dentist chairs – any kind of furniture you can think of. Just give us a call to discuss your requirements in more detail.

One of our other areas of speciality is the creation of beautiful bespoke headboards. Our upholsterers can create them in any size you’d like, cover them with any material and detail them to your precise specification. Past clients around Croydon have requested everything from minimalistic single headboards in neutral colours, to huge colourful headboards that cover an entire wall.


Our aim is to create something that speaks to your stylistic sensibilities, and perfectly complements the room in which it is to be installed. And as we make the headboards at our Croydon workshop and assemble them at your home, you don’t need to worry about any accessibility issues (e.g you’ve ordered a large headboard and have a narrow staircase).

Foam Cushions

The Hennis Upholstery team also makes and fits made-to-measure curtains, blinds and pelmets. Like our headboards, our curtains and similar window treatments are distinctly bespoke, and made to tick every box on your wish list. Choose from features like curtain tracks, fascia boards, poles, roller-Roman and Venetian blinds – whatever it is you believe would best complement the room you’re fitting out.


Our upholsterers take a “no job too small” approach to their work. While we’ve made beautiful curtains for local homeowners around Croydon, we’ve also taken on much larger jobs, for example crafting and fitting 6m long curtains in a hall at Farnham Castle. We’re also proud to work as Laura Ashley’s recommended curtain fitters. Whatever window treatment you require, contact us today to discuss your situation.

One “stand alone” re-upholstery service that we provide clients around the Croydon area is the replacement of seat/back foam cushions in sofas and similar furniture. Over time, foam cushions can lose their shape and firmness, making your furniture less comfortable to sit on. It also makes furniture look formless and worn down, which is unwelcome on an aesthetic basis.


We can replace old and shapeless foam cushions with ones that feature a foam core and feather or fibre jacket. These keep their shape for a long, long time. This re-upholstery service, which includes measuring and fitting, cuts down the time you’ll spend plumping up your cushions, and provides you with the support you need when sitting down to relax or work. No longer will you feel like you’re sinking down the side of the couch!

Contractual Work

Trade Price Fabrics

As mentioned on our Home page, Hennis Upholstery undertakes contractual work for companies of all shapes and sizes. In the past, we’ve made tailored loose covers for Windsor Castle’s library, and upholstered seating for The Corinthian Hotel, American and Spanish embassies, American Ambassador’s residence and even the royal box at Royal Ascot. You can also find examples of our upholstered seating at top London restaurants Mosimanns, Orange Elephant Steakhouse and Pitts Cottage Indian Cuisine.


Other notable clients include Harrods, who we delivered window displays for, Laura Ashley, Virgin Airlines, Sandersons and IPC Magazine. We’re happy to take on “one-off” contracts, creating luxurious bespoke upholstery for whatever application you require it. Alternatively, we can take ongoing contracts to see to all your re-upholstery needs, keeping your furniture looking its best. Our upholsterers are versatile and committed to delivering contractual work of the upmost quality, within a pre-determined timeframe.

Last but not least, we supply high quality trade price fabrics to clients in and around the Croydon area. Whether you’re a hobbyist with a passion for upholstery, or a professional who is looking for a reliable supplier with who they can save money, Hennis Upholstery is here to help. We sell fabrics from Romo, Sanderson, JBrown and many other fabric houses. Whatever properties you’re searching for, whether it’s something durable and muted, or delicate and colourful, we’ll be sure to have something that fits the bill.
