Upholstering and making fine furniture

While queuing at Seven Stars Corner (where Goldhawk Road meets Paddenswick Road), I’ve always been intrigued by The Chairman & Son. An upholstery business, usually with furniture piled high in the window, it has always looked a fascinating place to poke about.

‘Upholstery is our bread and butter, but that’s not all we do,’ smiles the Manager, Sam Harris. ‘Our upholsterers, Simon and “Magic”, can breathe new life into furniture – sofas, chairs, footstools, headboards, ottomans – in any fabric or style. It can get chaotic when we’re busy, but that adds to the character of the business! At the moment, we’re doing a complete makeover on a rocking horse in burgundy-coloured velvet.

‘In addition, since we have our own framemaker, we build bespoke furniture in traditional and modern designs for both private and corporate clients. For example, we specialise in classically English Howard-style sofas and we’ve been commissioned to make banquette seating. We also sell one-off pieces and, if a client wants to source a particular item, we can help track it down. We have excellent contacts in the trade!’
