Upcycle your Old Furniture with Fabric

The R-eco-very

Looking to update a love-worn piece of furniture or want one of our designs in any House print?
We’ve got you (and your furnishings) covered. Book your complimentary Upholstery Consultation or read on to discover more.

Whether you want to breathe new life into an old favourite, or put your own
stamp on a new piece, create your own ‘future heirloom’ with House of Hackney.

When we say recover, what we really mean is rECOver, as it’s far kinder to the environment to reupholster than to buy new. In the UK, a monumental 672,000 tonnes of furniture winds up in landfill each year (the equivalent to 4.2 million discarded two-seater sofas). Unwanted pieces left abandoned on the street is an equally terrible fate that causes havoc to local wildlife. As well as protecting plants and animals, rescuing the pieces you already own saves 1000 times the amount of CO2 it would take to create something from scratch. The fabric you choose also plays a part: ours are not only produced using responsible methods, but are free from harmful chemicals that damage the environment. That’s why we call them feel-good fabrics in more ways than one.

Fresh Prints

Bored of your headboard or is your sofa suffering? We have a fabric for that! From colour and print to style and texture, the possibilities are endless when it comes to choosing fabric. How to dwindle it down? As we always say, go with what you love. The most delightful rooms are diverse, with everything working together in a wonderfully eclectic way – so, don’t be cautious about pattern clashing. If you want to pick out certain colours or details in a fabric to complement a room’s décor, feel free; if not, the rules are there to be broken. The same applies to matching the motif to your style of furniture: just because a chair is classic, doesn’t mean the print needs to be.

Our Fabric

At House of Hackney, each one of our British-made velvets, cotton-linens and jacquards is suitable for upholstery. While cotton-linen is known for being hard-wearing and family-friendly, so too is our velvet; with a rub count of over 40,000, it’s every bit as durable as it is luxurious. Jacquard boasts a statement-making appeal and celebrates a traditional method of manufacturing. In fact, all our fabrics are woven and printed in Suffolk, England, by a family-run factory that goes back generations. So, whether you’re looking to recover an antique chair or a 20th century sofa, our fabrics will instil any design with a little history.

Meet Mike The Upholsterer

A fellow Hackney resident, Mike trained in traditional upholstery at the London College of Furniture and set up shop on Calvert Avenue in 1981, where he's been stuffing and stitching furniture the good old fashioned way since. We work together to encourage our customers to make good of old and find ways to bring worn pieces back to life; and as you can see, he’s rather good at it!
