My name is Rachel Sharp

As The Chair Doctor, I reupholster and refurbish antique or vintage mid century chairs transforming them into statement  accent pieces through a love of both modern and traditional upholstery. This can be by upholstering pieces I have sourced myself or through commissions.

I offer sales of finished upcycled, reupholstered, chairs but also offer a high quality reupholstering service for customer owned pieces as commissions.

My customers appreciate good quality and understand the value and time involved in the craft.
