How we work

We operate a professional

Our Ercol Furniture Cushion and Cover Service enables us to professionally re-cover existing Ercol furniture cushions, or make brand new cushions, no matter where you are located in the U.K!

Regardless of where in the U.K. you live, we can certainly provide you with exactly what you require in terms of replacement complete cushions, or covers only for your Ercol furniture.

We appreciate that you may well like to know the various options and costs of what we can do for you, so please see our 'Pricing' page for details.

Why we 'borrow' your original Ercol cushions

Proudly made-to-measure in BristolOver the 20 years that we have been making replacement cushions for Ercol furniture, we have of course supplied cushions for many of the 200+ models that Ercol have made since 1920.

Our experience is that we have seen cushions from apparently identical models but where there have existed subtle variations, perhaps a slightly different curve to the cushion, maybe different length fixing straps etc. etc.

As a result, by borrowing an example of your particular cushions, there is no doubt as to the exact specification of what we need to create for you.

Our Upholstery/Re-upholstery Ordering Process

How the ordering process works, depends on whether it's feasible, or not, for you to visit us. We'll explain more fully….

If you ARE able to visit our Showroom

You'll see from the 'Visiting our Showroom' page that if possible, this is the best way in which you can see everything we have to offer and see us actually making our cushions!

We would ask you to bring with you ideally all your cushions, or if that's difficult, then at least one complete cushion of each size.

Once we've discussed with you all the options open to you regarding your Ercol furniture and you have selected your chosen fabric from the thousands we have on display, we of course give you a fixed written Quotation. All of our sales advisors are NOT commission-paid, NOT 'pushy', but ARE friendly, knowledgeable and simply here to explain your options.

We then arrange for our carrier to call at your home and collect the parcel and bring it safely to us in Bristol. There is NO additional charge for using our Cushion Collection Service.

When completed, we would carefully and securely package up your new cushions and return them to your home by carrier.
