Otherwise, we can arrange for you to visit me at Hallam Mill in Stockport to see the chair you are interested in. Please get in touch to book an appointment. 

I don’t recover new chairs, but I’m happy to pass it onto experienced and qualified local upholsterers to do this for you.

Yes, I can send up to 4 samples at a time to your home. I ask that you keep them for me, as it’s important to me to reduce waste.
