The Upholstery Industry
Upholstery is the process of providing padding, webbing, springs and covering for furniture. It is a skill that is demanded by a range of industries – from the domestic and commercial fields to the automobile, aeroplane and marine furniture sectors.
The textiles used to upholster a piece of furniture include the whole spectrum of fabrics including leather. In fact, textiles alone may account for up to 80% of an item’s total price.
Working in the Upholstery Industry
The jobs undertaken by professional upholsterers are vast and varied. Some upholsterers will work across the board – carrying out tasks in all categories of soft furnishing – while others choose to specialise in niche areas. These areas include antique restoration, traditional upholstery or contract work within public buildings.
The sector also includes the opportunity to work within bespoke bed manufacture, loose cover making, car and coach trimming and leather restoration. Additionally, some upholstery companies have diversified into other sectors to provide a complete solution for contract and domestic customers. Companies may now also be involved in carpet fitting, blind and curtain making and lampshade manufacture.
