About Us


Upholstery is our profession and our passion


We’re your local upholstery specialists. Founded in 2010, Signature Upholstery specialises in antique restoration, reupholstery and custom-made furniture.

We believe there’s more to upholstery than replacing fabrics, padding and zippers. It’s about creating timeless pieces worthy of being handed down to the next generation.


We come to work every day because we love:
Giving old or used furniture a new lease on life, Creating special custom pieces that will give joy for many years, Reducing the amount of good-quality furniture sent to landfill annually.
