A few kind words from our happy customers

Dear Jerry

I would like to thank you for the amazing service you provided to rebuild our Victorian courting couch. The piece has been in our family for a long time and we were understandably nervous about the enormity of the task you faced. It has now been returned to us and it is stunning. I do not know how on earth you managed this given the state it was in when you received it. We will treasure it and as a family we cannot thank you enough.

Please pass our thanks on to all the team. They are an incredibly talented group.

With enormous thanks and very best wishes to you all.

My wife and I are delighted with the newly reupholstered armchair. What a transformation – we hardly recognised it from the somewhat scruffy, worse-for-wear item that it was before! The quality of the workmanship is clear to see. The chair is now back in its rightful place as a centre piece in our living room.

Jerry Groome has been our go to upholsterer for the past several years. His personal service, high level of craftsmanship and expertise in restoring antiques makes us confident in using him for all of our design projects. We equally recommend Jerry to both our discerning clients and to friends looking for quality and affordable upholstery transformations. We recently gave him some mid-century chairs destined for the skip, which he refurbished into high-end designer pieces. His work is just excellent and his service is second-to-none!


Dear Jerry

Thank you very much for your care and attention to detail in restoring and recovering our sofa. It looks really great.

Yours Clare

In my work with Mr Groome, he has proven to be exceptionally trustworthy and most importantly scrupulously fair in costings.  He has always delivered high quality products constantly throughout the 2 years, on time and with a dedicated approach.  In my opinion he is a highly professional, courteous individual.

Not sure what you did with our old chairs, but the ones you returned are wonderful, and look great in the sitting room.
Thanks for doing such a great job, and also for your very subtle guidance in helping to choose the right fabrics.
Perfect service and we really appreciated the knowledge and passion that you shared.

Thanks Again,

Lucy & Mike



Hi Jerry

Once again, thank you very much for the repair and reupholstering of my grandmothers Wing back chair.

The work was completed to a very high standard and I cannot find any ways in which the process and execution of this work could have been improved. The time frame it took to complete this item was spot on and the job was very well priced, I will recommend your work to anyone interested in bringing back to life any furniture. The wing backed chair has huge importance to my mother and she was delighted to see how well it had been cared for and the standard in which it had been brought back to.

Many thanks once again and I will be back in touch with any further work in the future

Kind regards from an old Seafordian

Dear Jerry and Team.

Thank you very much for the amazing job you had re-upholstering our Pieff chairs.

We fully appreciate what a difficult job this was and it was carried out with great skill.  The fabric is ideal and works so well with our other furniture.

Visitors have commented positively on the difference that the change has made.With grateful thanks, Margaret and Richard Bettles


After an initial visit from the friendly and professional Jerry Groome for advice, our jaded 35 year Habitat Chesterfield, was collected for reupholstery and returned looking like a new sofa from the factory. The end result is absolutely stunning, leaving us with a feeling of money well spent. 

Kind regards

Martin Havill 


Great advice given at initial meeting on the best fabric to suit our furniture taking into account we have 4 very active children who dont take any notice of the ‘do not eat food when you are on the sofa rule’ . Good, prompt service, highly recommend this company.

Dear Mr Groome, I would like to drop you a short note to thank you for your kindness when you came to see me.  I am 85 years old and not as quick as I used to be but you took your time showing me all your patterns and to make the right choice and patiently explained when you would collect my chairs and also when you would deliver them.  You came highly recommended and I would not hesitate to recommend you.  Many thanks once again.

Just a quick message to say how pleased we were with the finished chair – even though it was a “project”.  The blue material matches almost exactly to the Union Jack seat cover, thank you so much for bringing my mother’s rocking chair back to life – something I can remember her by.Susan Coyne

I just wanted to say thank you to you for the marvellous job you did recovering my chairs.  As you know, I inherited them some years ago and we think they are at least 80 years old.  they have huge sentimental value to us.  You have brought them back to life, re stuffing, new springs and really good quality workmanship all round.    Thank you, we love them .Fiona Nichols, Chichester.
