About Perch Upholstery

The creative home of Perch Upholstery, bringing my visions to life.

Perch Upholstery, established in 2015, is one woman on a mission to combine years of furniture refurbishing with degree training in upholstery.

Becoming my life's work, for me, there is no better feeling than taking a run down piece of furniture or a 'has seen better days' family heirloom and making it new again. Part of the time, I take commissions and work to my clients vision, in both modern and traditional types of reupholstery but now I am also able to put my original creations out there for the world to see!

My heart has been put into these pieces, my latest range combining my love of upholstery with extreme yarn creating what I hope you will agree are awesome footstools! With a Scandi and hygge feel, they are fantastically easy to take care of, yet so tactile and amazing, they will be the talking point of any room.

Along side my yarn range, I also have retro-styled footstools with one-off, refinished dansette legs or industrial hairpins both bold in colour and British in heritage. Most of my components are sourced from other independent businesses, from my small batch Harris Tweed, to the Hairpin legs, know that you are purchasing a unique piece, that supports small businesses around the UK. Oh, and they have that wow factor you will come to expect from Perch Upholstery. Watch this space as I have some other clever beauties in the works!

  • "Hi Tara, The bench came this morning. I waited to open it until I got home just now and we love it! We can’t wait to move so we can put it in the hallway in our new house! I was torn between the navy and the turquoise but I’m glad we chose the turquoise as it will stand out more. It’s so beautiful and unique! I’m so glad I found your store before we bought a generic hallway bench. Thanks so much, Sarah"

My main focus in delivering your item is that it arrives in the same condition as it is sent. Being that most items will be bulky, please understand that I use eco options whenever possible. From recycled boxes, to off cuts of foam (you wouldn't believe how great they are at protecting) you will find whatever necessary to insure a safe arrival.

If you are sending any of my items as a gift, I will happily work with you on making it a bit special, although it may still have the odd bits of foam holding it in place.
