About The Unique Seat Company’s Products

All the antique furniture on the website has been traditionally upholstered by The Unique Seat Company. Foam is never used.

The Victorian style ottoman boxes are made by English craftsmen and are then upholstered by The Unique Seat Company. Once again, foam is never used.

All the cushions and draught excluders are made entirely in England. Duck feather inner pads come as standard and these are also made in England.

The curtain tiebacks, key tassels and fairy lights are all sourced from companies within the UK.


The Unique Seat Company’s Services

In 2011 we began running traditional upholstery courses for beginners, which have gone from strength to strength. In 2014 we will begin running intermediate courses for those who have already completed our beginners course. Dates and prices to be announced. We now also sell upholstery supplies.

We continue to offer upholstery services alongside a curtain and blind making service to the whole of the UK.
