Unusual Upholstery: The Boat

As you may know, here at Grandad's Shed, we offer a wide range of bespoke services for local clients in Yorkshire and neighbouring areas. This includes reworking some of your most treasured pieces through our reupholstery service. It's not just sofas that we re-upholster either. Armchairs, footstools, pouffes: we restore and upholster anything from a dining chair to a window seats. We even upholster boats & Motorbike seats! 

This project has to be one of our favourites. It was perfect for a lover of Yachting - I was really happy to be able to visit this stunning Yacht with my many many fabric colours and explore different options with the owner.

We can specialise in projects of this nature as we use specific materials that will not be easily damaged by both UV and salt water. For other reupholstery work, we offer a fabulous wide variety of fabrics to suit both traditional or modern looks. You can choose from chenille, harris tweeds, wools, velvet, flat weaves, leathers, cotton and linens. 

We generally take lots of photos and measurements to ensure we replicate the seating as we do not work with cushions as a template as these can tend to warp.

The owner simply wanted to refresh the old appearance and give it a 'wow factor'. The midnight blue with cream trim was the preferred option and the images demonstrate this beautifully. I chose the best foam to give comfort and performance and that was engineered to float, drain water and avoid mould and mildew.

It seems it was a great success and l look forward to taking to the waters again!
