Upholstery through history

Upholstery is nothing new, and in fact “upholsterer” is a very archaic term, though it seems it originally referred to repairing furniture, rather than to “upholstery” as we understand it now.

In 18th-century London, upholstery was a very common practice. Shortly after it became very common in the US too.

Furniture reupholstery continues to be extremely popular today. Throughout the UK and the world at large. Contact RM Upholstery today at the Edinburgh office!
