Marine, Caravan, Airplane, and Automobile Interiors
Almar also supplies upholstery and reupholstery work for marine, caravan, airplanes and automobile interiors. From dealing with seats, cushions, trims, cabin furnishings,
Upholstery involves providing a variety of furniture and interiors, particularly seating and cushioning on seats, with padding, also known as batting and is put into seats or clothes to provide stuffing or packaging material, webbing, which is a very strong fabric that is woven and comes in either flat strips of tubes. The purpose of webbing is to make the upholstery work stronger and more flexible, supporting the fabric and providing elasticity. Springs, upholstery coil springs, that ensure suspension and resilience to the furniture. And then for both aesthetics and comfort, an outer layer of fabric or leather is skilfully laid over the desired parts of the furniture and secured in place.
The name upholstery comes from a Middle English word that refers to a skilled craft worker (artisan) who upheld goods, or were an upholder. Upholstery is normally applied to newer, more modern pieces of furniture, whilst reupholstery work is normally performed on older, antique piece that have perhaps been worn or damaged in some way. Reupholstery jobs are always a pleasure to work on as it is often so satisfying to see the before and after pictures, bringing the furniture back to life using custom designs, colours, and patterns.
Upholstery work goes back through the centuries and history. Traditional upholstery would use materials such as animal hair (horsehair, sometimes even cow and hog hair), coir (coconut fibre), hays and straws, wadding, hessian or burlap, linen scrims, and other natural materials, and were worked on by hand without the assistance of modern tools and equipment. Today these materials would be particularly expensive and the methods time-consuming, but thankfully – due to modern materials and tools, upholstery and reupholstery work isn’t as laborious as it once was. You can, of course, still use these materials to further increase the worth of your furniture. Now that there are factories producing both budget and high-end upholstery, working with your hands and doing custom jobs is definitely a unique profession. Fortunately, furniture upholstery and reupholstery continues to thrive in England and around the world. Serving Blackheath & Greenwich. Email Us firstname.lastname@example.org
