Steinhough's offers an upholstery recover service for your special sofas and chairs.
People seldom realise the amount of work involved to bring their cherished piece
of furniture back to it’s former glory. The whole process of recovering is painstaking
and very time consuming. When a client visits our showroom, or we see them in their

materials. The newly sewn covers are then applied to the foamed, padded frame to
