Hello, my name is Tilly. Along side working as ASM on Wicked The Musical in the West End, I started training as an upholsterer and @upholserybytilly has been a growing business since 2017. I have a real passion for restoring, recovering and re-loving furniture, every piece tells a story and I love giving furnishings a new lease of life. I work with traditional and modern techniques, create bespoke pieces as well as make soft furnishings including blinds, curtains and cushions.
To see more examples of my work you can find me on instagram @upholserybytilly or my website is www.upholsterybytilly.co.uk
Left: A Victorian nursing chair with a buttoned back and matching footstool. The furnishings are upholstered in a green linen fabric, with a pale trim. They sit on a blue rug in front of a roaring log burner with a green, leafy plant to the right.
Middle: A 1920’s style chair upholstered in teal velvet with black fringing round the base. The back of the chair is opened up like a cabinet to reveal a secret bar. Inside there is a cocktail shaker, glasses and bottles of spirits to make 20’s cocktails.
Right: An armchair upholstered in a peacock coloured velvet. It is photographed outside on some grass with some trees behind it.]
