I am so glad I found Dee Cee Upholstery, by asking on a village FB group if anyone knew of a good upholsterer. The service and kind reception when I came to visit was such a positive experience! It was only a small job; to dress buttons and fasten down on an old foot stool, and the job was done beautifully, swiftly and with great experience and care. I would happily recommend Dee Cees' to anyone requiring expertly carried out upholstery work - and I will be back! Have already recommended to two friends. Thank you Dee Cee!

Our customer who had recovered a stool herself ,but could not fit the buttons. We made up the buttons in her own fabric and fitted them to her stool top . We even made sure that the pattern on each one was different

From the first phone call to Deecee Upholsterers and the visit to my home I was treated with courtesy and patience. There was no pressure to agree to anything I was not happy with, and I was given impartial advice Though I only wanted one armchair recovered and reconditioned. It was not cheap (I could have bought a new chair for a lot less) I had a sentimental attachment to the old one. All in all I am very happy with the transaction

Whilst i agree that top quality re-upholstery does not come cheap, pound for pound it is the most cost effective option in the long run ( remember the old adage buy cheap buy twice ) Thank you for your business

Mike and Eve were customer of ours 15 years ago as they were so pleased with our previous re-upholstery service and excellent finished job we were the obvious choice My partner Karen helped them to choose the perfect fabric from over 150 pattern books in our showroom. Our customers opted to have their sofas and box ottoman together with tailor made arm caps protected with insurance backed anti stain warranty.
Amazing transformation of chair.

I had an old reproduction button back chair that needed revitalising and Derek was happy to reupholster it, having recovered our sofa with purple velvet to an excellent standard. I really wanted a Liberty print fabric but I knew it would be expensive. Derek told me how much fabric I would need and waited patiently for me to buy it and proceed when I was ready. The fabric arrived and Derek took the chair and it away. When he brought it back to choose a braid rather than studding I was amazed and delighted. He suggested I keep the braid catalogue overnight and check my choice in the daylight. I received the completed chair within a couple of days and it looks fabulous. I love this iconic Liberty peacock feather Hera print and have a stunning piece of furniture. Thank you Derek 😊

It was great to work with our customers, their classic deep button back reproduction showood chair was re-upholstered without the buttons as they would distort the beautiful pattern of iconic Peacock Feather Hera the Liberty Print. The chair was trimmed with antique studs before which were replaced by a chocolate coloured gimp/braid which complemented the fabric and the polished showood. Thank you for your business and for taking the time to post a review.

Extremely pleased with the re-upholstery of our two Armchair Cushions at Dee-Cee Upholstery and Interiors. First Class Workmanship at a reasonable price and an excellent Customer Service. Work completed within a week. Refreshing to find someone like Derek and his Wife. Highly recommended.

Our customer tried out the different density fire retardant foams on offer to choose from, after sitting on them they chose a medium seat grade wrapped with polyester and stockinet lining. We filled their existing seat covers, with the new interiors. The back cushions were filled with polyester fiberfill and rather than replace the interiors completely we put extra filling in them which was the less expensive option. There is no job too small for us to take on, if it is important to our customer it is important to us.

We have an antique chair which has been the family for many decades, and which was looking and feeling tired. DeeCee have done an excellent refurbishment job on the chair, transforming it, and done so in promptly, in about 10 days.

We specialize in traditional antique re-upholstery and use original skills passed on through the ages. The chair was reupholstered in soft chenille, when working on antique upholstery we always use traditional fillings such as horsehair and cotton linter felt i.e. no foam.

I commissioned Dee Cee to repair and reupholster my grandfather's old rocking chair and some more modern dining chairs and they have done a superb job. Karen helped me decide on the right fabrics from an impossibly large array of options and they look perfect now the chairs are done and home. Derek showed great attention to detail on the work, as well as providing a super-efficient collection and delivery service. They only take the chairs away when they are ready to do the work, and the project was complete within a week. The finished chairs are a world away from what they were and are a real enhancement to my home now. Thank you Dee Cee!
