Affordable, bespoke service

As a family business we have been upholstering, manufacturing and repairing furniture for over 40 years.

Based in Darlington, we can provide our domestic services to the County Durham area. Contract and commercial  work is carried out throughout the UK.

We have Guild of Mastercraftsmen  membership so you can be confident about our quality of work and reliability.

We manufacture and supply furniture to the whole of the UK and Europe.

Leather Repair/Restoration

Leather furniture can be damaged easily through spillages, incorrect cleaning procedures, over exposure to heat and objects such as shoes and buckles that can leave scratches.

Antique Repair/Restoration

If you’ve been given a precious antique by a loved one or if you’re looking to upcycle something you’ve bought for a bargain, we can use traditional techniques that will add years to their life.

What We Do
Upholstery Repair/Restoration

Those who run a hotel business can often encounter the problem of sofas beginning to look tired and saggy thanks to overuse by guests. We can replace or replenish existing cushions.

Design and Manufacture

soft furnishings. This is an affordable, bespoke service that can be carried out to your exact requirements



A traditional craft, ideal for restoring originality, repairing pre-loved or adding a modern twist on your furniture.

New furniture is often mass produced. High costs, long waiting times (12 weeks in some cases) while it is made abroad and imported into the country.

You may have paid a lot of money for an item that has been part of your family for many years. Over time the frame may weaken, springs can fail and after lots of family use it may be ready for a new lease of life. Or, you may find the pets and children have been a little “over-zealous” and caused a rip, tear or stain on leather upholstery. Whatever the scenario, your furniture can be saved by the services provided by us at Metro Furniture.

Upcycle an inherited piece, an heirloom, something you were given or even something you found by chance. Upcycle is the new recycle!

An environmentally friendly way of getting new furniture, without the cost and hassle of getting rid of the old.

We can give it a unique, new lease of life, upholstering and restoring it with a high quality finish.

We are a small family business, but small does not mean that we are unable to produce large amounts of high quality furniture, it simply means you would receive a more personal, unique service.

With over 40 Years of experience in reupholstery, furniture manufacture, leather repairs, foam and spring replacement. We also have membership of The Guild of Master Craftsmen.

True furniture repair and revival can be a time consuming laborious task for someone who lacks the correct knowledge and experience, but at Metro Furniture we can take care of this for you. Following an original inspection, assessment and diagnosis, we then strip the furniture (which itself requires skill and precision). We can progress the repair work which may not just be to replace the existing fabric, but also repair the frame by tightening joints, checking and replacing springs or replace seating cushions so that comfort and cosmetic appearance are restored.

We are also sympathetic to the original features of the chair or sofa, so the original period characteristics and features such as any wooden carving and stud work are retained. We have a large amount of experience of successful reupholstery of chairs and sofas aging from 2 years to over 100 years old, with styles and designs ranging from Club, Wing, Chaise, Queen Anne.

We have a huge selection of fabrics, leathers and PVC’s, supplied directly from UK fabric manufacturers. So whether you have a “cheesed off” Chesterfield or a “rattling” recliner, Metro Furniture can solve the issue!!
