Do you have a beloved piece of furniture that needs some TLC?

I am an upholsterer and soft furnisher based in east London providing a range of upholstery services, creating bespoke upholstery, re-upholstery and soft furnishings and original textile print designs, using traditional or modern techniques and materials suited to furniture for your home or business. My work is done with the utmost care and attention to detail. Whether it’s a complete refurbishment of your favourite armchair, completely refurbishing your dining chairs or sofa’s seat & back cushions – I can help!


If you are looking for someone who will take time to understand what you want from your furniture then look no further. I pride myself on my ability to listen carefully, so that we can create something together which truly reflects who you are as well as being practical enough to last many years without losing its appeal. As part of this process, if there is anything about your existing piece that might be worth keeping then I will always try to find ways in which these elements may be incorporated into our design together along with any new ideas that we come up with during our conversations. This way we ensure continuity between old and new while still bringing something fresh into the mix! You won’t find another service like mine anywhere else in London so get in touch today!

Having completed 6 morning sessions With this lovely group of students They are all beginning to hit their strides with some amazing upholstery projects. I look forward to seeing them all again after the Easter break.
It’s great fun to share some tips and tricks with them all and I’m finding it’s also helping me refine my own skills and processes on the tools.

Thank you all for coming. And if you are thinking maybe I should join a leisure class @shoreditchdesignrooms - Get right on one!!

For those that have recently started following me on here Thank you for following!
May I reintroduce myself.
I`m Ray Clarke. I love the craft, I love art. I love my family and friends and I particularly love upholstery, re-upholstery and bringing my own art to this craft through developing textile prints which I occasionally use to create statement one-off pieces.
I love learning. I love practicing it and recently, through @sit_on_this_workshops and now finding my way teaching a leisure class at the prestigious @shoreditchdesignrooms on Friday mornings. If you are about and want to come and say Hi you’ll find me there as well as in my Bow-based workshop.
Right now I`m rebuilding the seat in a living room of a Professor in Kennington while listening to some classical music on my @spotifyuk. Music is my constant companion, as I hope are you on this journey.
Much love to you all and have a great weekend! Rxxx

Late night getting this pair of French #bergères #chairs ready for delivery Friday. Loving the grey #Squirrel #gimp from @vvrouleaux, complimenting this sumptuous velvet called #Scala , in colour #putty, from @chase_erwin_textiles. Just 8 more panels, the down feather seat pads to create (and alittle more Gimp to fit ) I always get alittle “antsy” towards the end of a big project: The temptation to rush to the finish can ruin work. Specially at this time of year, when it feels like everyone wants it before Christmas. Thanks for your support Rxx ...
