The 50s and 60s produced some amazingly designed and well built pieces of furniture. I search out those pieces that have languished for decades: armchairs that have been climbed over by generations of children and grand-children and attacked by family pets of all kinds; bookcases and shelves that have been knocked into, tipped over and moved from family home to student flat and back again. I re-paint, re-upholster and re-imagine these forgotten relics and transform them into beautiful, modern and functional pieces ready for another 60 years of love and appreciation!

COMING UP...

Workshops

 

Mad4Mod, in conjunction with Bec's Shed, will be offering a range of fun, do-able upholstery workshops to teach you the basic skills you need to tackle a range of reupholstery projects at home. Each workshop will cover a different set of upholstery skills, slowly but surely building your know-how and confidence. If you've always wanted to give upholstery a go but didn't know where to start...start here!
