Bumbles – the Professional Furniture Upholsterers, Gloucestershire

Hello and welcome to Bumbles Upholstery

We are a small company based in Gloucester City. The owner, Mrs. Alice Purcell, is a BA (Hons) Fine Art graduate. Alice has had substantial training and experience in upholstery, soft furnishings and dressmaking.

Why not have your old favourite Armchair or Sofa re-upholstered? Older items of furniture tend to be more sturdy than modern furniture, and will last the test of time. So why not invest in new covers & filling? We can give your furniture that much-needed TLC and give it a new lease of life.

We are specially trained and skilled in restoring your furniture back to its former glory, from new coverings to completely renovating your old favourite (and possibly slightly battered) smaller pieces of furniture.
      Testimonial: "Hi Alice, Thank you for my lovely chairs! My cerise pink Parker Knoll chairs look fantastic! I am very pleased with them and will not hesitate to recommend you to my friends."   - Tracey Gray.

Have a look at this example below:

Reupholstery of your Sofas, Armchairs, Upright Chairs, Stools, Dining Chairs, etc

We re-upholster Sofas and Armchairs, Upright Chairs and Dining Chairs. We can bring life back into your cushions with new filling materials, to restore your cushions and give extra support where the old cushions have sagged over the years.

If you find your seating position too low, we can raise it by making the cushions thicker for you; we can discuss this before we start work.

Choosing your Fabric - we can help you with Ideas, Fabric Samples etc

If you are uncertain about the best fabric type, design and colour, we can advise you. You may like something to blend in with the room decor, or with your carpet, for example.

All fillings and fabrics are fire-retardant.

Renovating the Wood Finish to restore its Former Glory - or even better

If the wood of your furniture is looking tired, we have the skills to strip the finish down to the original wood, and then we can make it look like new. We stain, oil and polish the surfaces as required. We can renovate small coffee tables too.

We have the skills to renovate old dining seats, stool tops and small chairs, we can also replace tired webbing, fit new springs (if required) and mend.
