Very pleased with finished result. Took in piano stool past its prime but it had sentimental value. They have polished and reupholstered the stool and I cannot believe it is the same item I am looking at. So lovely and helpful.

Modernising a wing chair

I have been using Dee Cee Upholstery for 43 years in fact I was their first customer. Nothing is too much trouble for them. So when I had the idea of sewing fabric samples together to update a chair. They said no problem! We discussed where each fabric was to go. I couldn’t be more delighted with the result. Derek has made a boring dull chair into a real statement piece of furniture I’m proud to have in my lounge.

It is very rewarding when previous customers comes back to have another job done and found that our high quality and service was the same as last time . Whilst it was a small job to supply and fit fire retardant cushion interiors into their existing covers, if it is important to our customers it is equally important to our business.
Excellent Re-upholstery of Coservatory Chairs and Stool

Job was to replace cushions on 2 conservatory chairs and cushion and webbing on foot stool. We wanted the chair cushions to be a little thicker and longer than the originals. The cushions and stool were both collected from and delivered back to us. Completed ahead of time and the total cost was exactly as previously advised. An excellent job of upholstery and we are very pleased with both the look and the comfort of the cushions. Derek was always on time and he and his staff were always very courteous. We have no hesitation in recommending Dee Cee Upholstery and indeed it is the second time that we have used them.

Derek and Karen were very helpful from the onset of me visiting their shop, during a difficult time with the Covid pandemic. The procedure was efficient and felt very safe. Both were very helpful with fabric choices. From placing order all times scales were met. On return of my completed very large sofa and two arm chairs I was delighted with not only my choice of fabric but as it had a stripe was amazed at the stunning finish of what must have been some tricky work. I would highly recommend Dee Cee Upholstery, in fact they have taken a further chair and ottoman for recovering. Very satisfied customer Mrs Davina Sleep

Thank you Davina for a very uplifting and in- depth positive review , due to the Covid Pandemic we have systems and procedures in place at all-times and we are pleased that you felt safe in our Portswood showroom ( on collection and delivery we always where face masks ) Davina had put a lot of thought and effort to get the perfect desired effect for her 3 piece suite to be re-upholstered , she chose some books to take home ( we stock over 100 books in our pattern book library to choose from ) Our customer had chosen a striped chenille which as she stated was tricky to pattern match , but due to the skill of our master upholsterers we manage to create the desired effect Whilst we are a small family business established in1978 (over 42 years ago ) we always strive to deliver exceptional award winning customer service as standard. Thanks again It was great to receive such a brilliant testimonial Regards Derek Caplen F.A.M.U. & S.F. ( Fellow Of The Association Of Master Upholsterers & Soft Furnishers )

Thank you for such a positive and detailed review , it was a pleasure to do business with Mrs. Goddard as it was easy because our customer new exactly what she wanted in terms of fabric choice for her conservatory suite ,we were happy to oblige The cushion interiors were in good condition and only needed a wrap of fire retardant polyester covered with a stockinet lining to make up as good as new . Our customer was very impressed with our service and superb quality of workmanship. We also applied fabric stain protection together with a 5 year anti stain policy .

Dee Cee reupholstered my Parker Knoll chair. The service was excellent from start to finish. Derek advised me on which patterns would be unsuitable, and what would be suitable. They finished the job really quickly and picked up and delivered. I love the results and am very pleased to recommend Dee Cee Upholstery.
