70s Danish sofa

5
I sent out for a number of quotes to get my sofa upholstered and Martin was the cheapest. He was also able to give me good advice on fabrics and cost effective alternatives. He organised the picking up and delivery without any hassle and the job only took a week which was very fast. In the end, my sofa looks great and the upholstery was very well done. I am very happy with both process and quality and would highly recommend using Porterhouse Design.

Victorian button back chair

5
Martin has just re-upholstered our Victorian button back armchair and we're delighted with the results. It looks fabulous and he went the extra mile, doing some frame repairs without being asked. He's also a great guy to deal with and went out of his way to get it done quickly so that my wife has a nursing chair before the imminent arrival of our baby!

Great service, total gent and great price.

5
Martin was splendid, could not get sofa into my flat. He was there and disassembled it and had it up the stairs in a jiffy.

It subsequently turned out on of the cushions had a cut which he then repaired to invisibility.

He is great, the service is first class and the price was far, far from eye watering. All in all a first class experience.

Brown Leather Sofa

5
I had a large stain on one of the back cushions of my sofa and thought I would have to replace the entire sofa.

Martin, however, did a fantastic job in replacing the panels and providing a perfect match.

Martin really does take pride in his work which is a rare thing to find these days and is why I believe he did such a great job.

Testimonials

Jacob Simon

Martin recovered our upholstered easy chair, two antique side chairs and two fitted seats to antique chairs. He was very helpful and easy to deal with. He asked questions if anything was not completely clear. He did a very good job and we are planning to get some further work once we have chosen fabrics.

Customer in Greater London

They were helpful in the extreme; fully respecting the date the chairs were made and using appropriate materials to repair them. Decisions were made in complete consultation with me. I was impressed with the cost which I considered more than reasonable and the time taken to complete the task was beyond expectation. It was completed by an expert craftswoman. The chairs matched the old ones exactly just as requested. I cannot praise the work or the care the company took with the task enough.

Martin reupholstered a sofa and a footstool and replaced the seat and back padding on eight dining room chairs. He responded quickly to my initial enquiry, provided a very reasonable quote for the work and did a great job in the time frame I required. I would definitely use him again

What a guy! Martin provided us with a fabulous service. He was very generous with his time in helping us pick the right material for our chairs and once ordered he also turned the job around pretty quickly. Given the material we bought was relatively pricey he also offered to make us a cushion with the off cuts totally free of charge. He’s a pleasure to spend time with, offering friendly and impartial advice, not to mention a master craftsman. Would recommend highly.

Wonderful job on a chair that desperately needed updating. At Porterhouse there's a wide selection of quality fabrics and Martin was very attentive and helpful throughout the job. I'm very happy with the end result, as so is my cat! :) (as you can see in the picture) Would highly recommend!

Absolutely superb! Real craftman and incredible people too! I had some really important but difficult jobs for them, and Martin and his team absolutely flew through them. These guys get things done! Lovely company, completely trustworthy and great fun. I doubt there is another team out there as skilled as these guys. Can't thank them enough.
