Rapport Interiors was born out of a traditional upholstery business started in Winchcombe by Martin McDonagh in the 1960s. With more than 50 years experience behind us we have an excellent understanding of the principals of both modern and traditional antique re-upholstery and demand high standards from our new furniture suppliers as well as our own upholsterers. Martin is still a regular in the workshop, where he puts his re-upholstery skills to good use on selected pieces of period furniture - and of course keeps a watchful eye on the 'youngsters!'
Our re-upholstery service includes both re-styling and recovering modern furniture as well as restoring antique pieces. For period furniture we still use traditional methods with coil springs, webbing, horse hair and even bespoke button-making.
To give an assessment of the time and work involved in a re-upholstery project we prefer to first inspect the furniture. Occasionally, with older or antique pieces, it's not until a chair or sofa is stripped down that the full extent of the work is revealed. However, if you just want an initial estimate, you can email us pictures of your furniture and we can give you an approximate labour cost and a guide to the amount of fabric needed.
Tamarisk has a leaning to more contemporary styles, while Greengate has an excellent traditional range and both of exceptional quality. These companies are willing to work with fabrics we supply on your behalf, so once you have selected your style and items of furniture, we can help you through the more difficult task of choosing the right covering to suit your home and needs.
Although we do not hold their furniture ranges within our showroom, due to space limitations, both these companies have excellent showrooms of their own and are happy to accept our clients by appointment.
Please use the website links below to view their collections and if you wish to visit their showrooms we are happy to make an appointment for you. If you prefer, you can contact them direct, quoting Rapport Interiors, Winchcombe, as your reference.
