Suite overhaul

A full overhaul and recovering of a three piece suite, restoring it to the same brand new condition as when we bought it nearly twenty years ago. Done quickly within the time estimated and delivered when agreed. The whole process from original visit to delivery went very well. They also supplied furniture for us to use whilst the job was being done. Cost was very similar to a big national company, so it was good to go local.

I couldn't replace my kitchen chairs as they didn't do them anymore so got them recovered and they are as good as new - really pleased. Also feel virtuous and better for environment to redo than throwing away

Re - upholstery is one of the oldest forms of recycling now called up cycling . and saves a trip to the dump , and less going to landfill.

We had a chair and ottoman reupholstered in a 'designer guild' fabric. The chair was brand new from loaf. The chair is better than new with more plump cushions and a more luxurious feel. Customer service is second to none. You really feel in the hands of masters.

Whilst this was only a small repair job, if it is important to our customer it is also important to us. As another satisfied customer can recommend us to potential future clients and it is helpful to our business.
Sofas better than new!
Customer Service

We had 2 sofas 15 years old & they were a little tired in particular the material although we loved the style & size. Throughout the whole process, Derek & his team made it easy from going through fabrics to the end result. The workmanship far exceeded our expectations. We opted for firmer seat cushions & all new scatter backs. Our sofas are now unique & better than new. You need to remember that upholstery isn’t a cheaper option to buying new but what you get is far better in quality of padding, comfort & material & that will stay looking great for longer. Having looked at new sofas the quality isn’t there. We now have two beautifully unique pieces. I was originally recommended this company from a family member who had new arm covers made for her sofa & I have to say it’s the best decision I made going with Dee Cee, I will also be recommending them on.

The 2 sofas that we re-upholstered and not just recovered with new fabric . They were both good quality and well worth investing in having them done, as they had great potential. Thank you Andrea for this superb review and it highlights everything that we strive for.
Quality cushion

We required a cushion for our bench in the kitchen. Dee Cee Upholsterers created a quality cushion that will take years of use without showing wear and tear as the manufacture process was very thorough. Quite expensive but a excellent product.

We supplied a top-quality 3" fire retardant foam cushion interior which was wrapped in polyester and stockinet lining for your bench seat. The cushion was made with a box self piped edging fitted with a zip. As with anything quality comes at a price. We are pleased that you gave us a 5-star rating for quality and you stated that it was an excellent product. At this point, I would like to thank you for your email received on 28/09/21. " I Just would like to say thank you for making my seat cushion. I am so pleased with the quality of workmanship and the time it took to make it. It looks fantastic and I appreciate the effort taken to complete it, with the material that you were given. I love it"

Derek came to assess what was required and quoted to re-plump the leather seat on my chair, which was very compressed, and also replace the webbing, as well as plump the back as well. They collected it, completed the work and returned it in 10 days. I asked for the seat cushion to be firm and am delighted with the result. In addition, they called to say that the work took less time than expected, so reduced the price they originally quoted, which was a pleasant surprise. Very efficient and professional company, who also offer a warranty on their work.

When I paid a visit to quote for the job in hand, the electric recliner chair leather seat needed to be stripped out to the base frame and be reupholstered. Using a firm fire retardant high resilient foam interior, and whilst we had the chair in our workshop we put extra padding in the back. Thank you for your excellent review
Top quality work.

We are really pleased with the work Dee Cee Upholstery have completed. They made 5 new cushions for our suite and it is now like having a completely new suite without the expense of a brand new suite. It is such a sensible option to upgrade and refresh a tired suite with newly made seats and covers. The suite is really modern looking now and fabulously comfortable. The work has been top quality, reasonably priced with a friendly and quick service. Highly recommend Dee Cee Upholstery.

Reupholstery of sofa

Derek and team have been a pleasure to deal with. We have had an old M&S sofa (24 years old) re-upholstered to an amazing standard, it looks better than new. The craftsmanship and attention to detail is second to none. It was a 2 week turnaround and they kindly provided chairs for us to use in the interim period. I would thoroughly recommend Dee Cee upholstery and will be returning in the future.

I am over the moon with the quality of workmanship from Dee Cee Interiors. I was apprehensive about having my suite re-upholstered, but wow I have two absolutely unique stunning sofas, in superb fabrics. Derek and his team spent time explaining about the fabrics and which fabrics would crush over time and which wouldn't. The staff at Dee Cee were always very helpful and friendly, the whole experience was excellent, very personal and friendly, yet professional. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Dee Cee Interiors. A first class job!
