“I like mixing fabrics when upholstering. Dining chairs in particular look amazing with one fabric on the seat and inside back and then another complimentary fabric on the back of the chair. I then like to use nail head detail to finish it off.”    Kim Knox-Thurn, Interior Design Principal, The Style Project.

At The Style Project, we work with highly skilled upholsterers who can take your family heirloom and breathe new life into it. Our Interior Design expertise enables us to select the perfect fabric or leather to update a much loved piece of furniture. Our gifted upholsterers will work their magic on your chair, sofa or ottoman and transform it with a new look.

From a straight forward upholstery project to complete stripping and re padding adding new springs and webbing, we are able to assist. Retaining an existing piece of furniture for its design aesthetic and comfort is the perfect reason to reupholster a piece of furniture. Coil springs and solid timber indicate that a piece is well made and well worth re-upholstering.

By upholstering an existing piece of furniture it will enable you to hand it down from generation to generation and add your own unique twist to a piece. Think of it as a piece that will stay in your family, along with the memories that go with it. Furniture built years ago was hand made and built to last. Giving it a helping hand with some new fabric is a loving way to restore a family heirloom.


Our upholsterers quality workmanship and love of what they do, shows in our finished products and happy clients. The Style Project cover the entire Sydney & Melbourne metropolitan areas and are happy to arrange shipping to and from our country clients homes.
