Welcome to River Cottage Upholstery

Welcome to 'River Cottage Upholstery' Which is based from  my workshop here in a small hamlet, in deepest Dorset, making and reviving beautiful handmade vintage & antique furniture.
Today we are so tempted in newness of all disposable goods, here we believe in restoring the balance in the world, by our own actions in environment and ecological sustainability.

Traditional upholstery involves using time-honoured traditional methods and materials in order to create comfortable, long lasting seating. 

It requires craftsmanship, involving many senses such as touch and sight along with judgment and knowledge. The time and skill involved is reflected in the final price.

We work with modern furniture designers, interior designers, private clients and architects.

Our service is tailored to individual requirements and commissioned projects are given attention to detail and preservation of its history. Please get in touch and we can help any way we can.
