Custom-made furniture

Master craftsman David Greenwood and his team have an enviable reputation for excellence.

Skills learned over a lifetime employ the best of both traditional and modern techniques, and only solid beech frames are used to create upholstery ranging from small footstools to huge sofas.

When it comes to comfort, everyone is different; some people like to lounge others prefer more support. At Swankies you can choose exactly how high and how deep you would like your upholstery.

All you have to do then is to decide on your choice of fabric from our wonderful array, choose the comfort for your cushions – and let us do the rest.

Reclaim the Beauty of the Past

Love your sofa but bored with the colour? Reupholstery is the answer.

We will collect your beloved piece: be it a sofa, chair, headboard or even a stool... strip it back, reupholster it in a fabric of your choice and then watch you smile when we bring it back to you like - or even better than - new.

Natural wear and tear also takes its toil but that is not a problem either. Skilled replacement such as respringing or making new interiors for cushion will be a transformation, bringing old favourites back to life, with years of further use.

Accidents happen in the best of households, so if your upholstery has been the victim of over exuberant teenagers or even the family pet a trip to Swankies Surgery will soon restore order.

Windows…

with wow!

Everyone’s home is special and deserves to be different. Why not have individually designed hand-made window treatments. We have thousands of fabrics and beautiful trimmings and poles from which to choose, everything you need to create the look you desire. Our high quality curtains and soft furnishing are made with traditional craft techniques.

The choice of blinds and shutters today is simply immeasurable, and can feel overwhelming so why not let Swankies guide you to the right window treatment for your home.

“Hang curtains, they make a room seem finished: think of them as the lipstick of decorating.”

(Peter Dunham, Hollywood At Home)
