I recently left a review for work carried out by Derek and his team to re-upholster our office chair and our 3 piece sweet cushions and supply a new mattress for the sofa bed. So outstanding was the work that we decided to get our oak dining room chairs re-upholstered too. We picked them up today. First class work again and carried out very quickly. Even though the pattern of the hard-wearing covers was not critical for placement matching on each chair, Derek matched placement for all of the cushions for our chairs and they look stunning in our dining room … Derek also treated the cloth with a product to protect against soiling … an extra bonus … thank you for restoring our furniture … if it’s real craftwork you need and at a reasonable price, look no further … brilliant!

We had a sofa bed and two armchairs that needed new seating cushions plus a new mattress for the sofa bed. Also an office swivel chair that needed reupholstering. All the pieces were of good frame quality. Derek was very knowledgeable and clearly took great pride in his work having received numerous awards. Nevertheless Derek was approachable and gave us reasonable quotes. We also visited his shop in Southampton to chose the material for the work. The work was carried out in a reasonable period of time and was delivered to us today. Amazing! The old office swivel chair is now as new having been re-padded and covered to a very high quality. The mattress fits perfectly and is very supportive and comfortable with a zip fasening to enable removal of the cover for laundering … great thinking. All of the seating cushions have been meticulously re-padded and covered so that the lines on the tartan cloth we chose are coordinated and match perfectly at the edges etc. … superb craftmanship. We would thoroughly recommend Dee Cee Upholstery for providing a very high standard of care and attention and at a reasonable price … it is very hard to find, these days, small business tradesmen who take great pride in applying their expertese and skill in restoring furniture to its former glory but Derek is one of them. Thank you.

This review was one of the most comprehensive received so far , and really shows what can be achieved using all our skills as master upholsterers. When we covered the high quality mattress interior we decided to fit a long zip so that it could be removed easily by our customer for cleaning as and when required . We thank you for your kind comments in this excellent testimonial . Derek and Karen and the team at Dee Cee Upholstery
Repair to chair

Very efficient: the chair was picked up on the day that I approached the company and it delivered back repaired a few days later. It was minimal effort from my side and the price was in the region that i expected.

Our existing customer from Chandlers Ford , their chair was part of a 3 piece suite that we re - upholstered 14 years ago . It was a case of " a stitch in time saves 9 " as the back of the chair was broken and had come adrift . It was stripped out and repaired as required and put back to its original condition .

I asked Dee Cee Upholstery to re-cover two sofas and replace the foam cushions. As always, the quality of the work was outstanding. I return to Dee Cee Upholstery time and again as I feel that I am guaranteed to get skilled craftsmanship and a beautifully finished result. The sofas were returned to me ahead of schedule and on budget and the service throughout was excellent and very helpful. I would really recommend Dee Cee Upholstery.

Our Customer from Bentley ( which is over 30 miles away ) returned to us for the re-upholstery of 2 x sofas ,to be recovered in a Sanderson fabric . The high quality traditionally styled sofas with loose seat and back cushions which were self piped in the same fabric and fitted with zips . We replaced the seat cushion interiors with a good quality medium density fire retardant foam which were wrapped with polyester and stockinet lining . It's great to hear that our service was excellent and very helpful , and that they would really recommend us . Thank you for your continued business
Custom cut upholstery foam

I required upholstery foam to make extra cushions for my dinning room chairs. Karen was very helpful and patient in enabling me to choose the depth of foam required and her colleague was meticulous in creating a template for the carvers, a particularly difficult task due to the placement of the arm supports. The finished articles were completed on the date specified and were well executed. The service was professional, yet friendly. I would clarify my comment on value to say that I did not seek alternative quotes but can confirm that I was happy with the cost.

Our customer had 6 x dining chair seats and 2x carver chair seats foam cut to shape and size . In our fully equipped workshop in Portswood Southampton , we use a special air compressed foam cutter which has 2 x reciprocating blades , as one blade goes down the other blade goes up. The cost of the Bosch foam cutter / knife costs in the region of £ 800.00 plus vat . The fire retardant foam that was supplied was a firm P 38 and once the templates were made we were able to cut the foams to the required size and shape . Another happy and satisfied customer.
Beautiful Reupholstery of Vintage Suite

Derek has done an amazing job reupholstering our vintage three piece suite. It is a complicated curved design with button backs, piping and studs which now looks stunning. Derek and Karen were both very helpful throughout. We were able to borrow samples to decide on colours and the suite was both collected and delivered - not an easy job either given the size of the four seater sofa, so kudos to all the DeeCee staff.

The 4 seater sofa was extremely heavy and fitted in to the back of our van with only an inch to spare . The job proved to be very challenging due to the shape , style and size of the 4 seater sofa . There were over 1500 studs which were nailed by hand to the arm facings wings and out side backs . Thank you for your business and posting such a great review

From the first phone call to the delivery of my reupholstered chairs and stool I received excellent service. All members of staff that I met or spoke to by telephone were really polite and knowledgeable. It was really helpful to have the loan of chairs whilst ours were in the workshop. When the furniture was brought back I was thrilled with the results. The furniture now looks better than when I bought it new. I would have no hesitation in recommending DeeCee Upholstery
