reCover - The original ercol reupholstery service

Here at ercol, we have been offering a premium quality reupholstery service for over 60 years, ensuring that many happy customers can continue to enjoy their furniture for as long as they wish.

Ercol furniture is synonymous with quality and the care that we take through every step of the process means that we create durable furniture that will provide many years of enjoyment.  However, the fabric and cushion interiors will inevitably deteriorate over time with wear, and in direct response to this, our reupholstery service was born.

We only recover a select range of our furniture models, you can view these in our reCover guide which will help you to identify which exact model you own and if this service is available for that range.

Sofa and chair reupholstery – love your furniture for longer

We can provide reupholstery in a selection of fabrics.  Also, due to the way that many of our products are crafted, you won’t need to be without your furniture during the reupholstery process.  We deliver your new reupholstery to your door, leaving you to simply swap your old cushions for new.

It takes approximately 8-10 weeks from placing your order to delivery of your new cushions, and then you’re free to enjoy your reupholstery and take pleasure in your items all over again.

If you’d like to find our more about our reupholstery service or if we offer the service on your sofa or chair then please feel free to contact our reupholstery team on 01844-271800 or alternatively visit your local stockist.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is reCover?

reCover is the reupholstery service from ercol, where we undertake professional sofa reupholstery and chair reupholstery. We can supply replacement cushions for a select few of the different sofas and chairs that we have produced over the last 90 years as well as replacement seat and back pads for many of our dining chairs. Reupholstering can give your cherished pieces of ercol furniture a fresh lease of life or simply the chance to fit them in with a change of style.

Q: Why reupholster my furniture?

ercol furniture's solid wood frames will last well and age gracefully - many of our pieces have become part of people's lives and bear the marks of growing families and changing times. However, there will come a point where you may want to reupholster your furniture. Over time, any fabrics will show signs of wear with use, and interiors will compress, giving a less supportive sit and changing the look of the furniture. 

Tastes and fashions also change, which could be another reason to reupholster a chair or other items. As long as we still offer the reupholstery service for your range of furniture then the replacement upholstery will give your furniture a new look and a new lease of life, whilst you have the knowledge that you're helping the environment by choosing reupholstery instead of throwing away the frame.

Q: Can you reupholster my specific piece of furniture?

Over the past 90 years ercol has designed and sold over two hundred different designs for chairs and upholstery, a few of which fall within our sofa reupholstery and chair reupholstery service. To check whether reCover re-upholstery is available on your specific item of ercol furniture you can check the reCover guide which has a full listing of all models supported.

Q: Why choose ercol reCover for my reupholstering?

Using our archives of original design drawings and fabric patterns, ercol craftsmen will provide professional sofa reupholstery and chair reupholstery using only the highest quality materials. We can only offer this service on the selected ranges displayed in the reCover guide and offer a selection of fabrics for reupholstering. 

Q: Where can I get my ercol furniture repaired?

ercol reCover can provide you with sofa reupholstery and chair reupholstery on a selection of our items. However, we do not carry out repairs on the frames or on our other furniture that doesn't fall under our reupholstery service.

2020 ercol reCover Guide
