Business Seating Refurbishment
Why is it important?

There is no doubt that a tidy, clean, well maintained working environment is a major incentive for its workforce as well as being reassuring to customers and clients.

In business this can often be translated into improved well being, morale, reducing sickness absence, improving retention and ultimately improving productivity. Seating refurbishment has a part to play in this.

Replacing chairs every time they get dirty, torn or broken is not viable. However, often a simple recover or a component replacement, such as new arm pads, mechanism, gas piston, base and castors, can cost effectively return your chairs to their former glory.


When the time comes for a corporate upgrade, the imaginative use of modern fabrics with a simple recover can give you workplace the Wow!  factor without the expense.

Organisations spend a lot of time and effort creating a brand image to attract and retain both staff and customers. The aesthetics of staff and customer office chairs and soft furnishings are a major component of that branding. All too often this image is tarnished over time with seating becoming dirty, torn, worn or broken.

"We saved over £500,000 refurbishing our office chairs with Waldron’s rather than purchasing new......."


"Can I just say how impressed I have been with your service, it has been really efficient and cost effective as well. I have been recommending your services!"

Stockwood Medical Centre

"....... we are having a Channel 4 documentary made on Premier and we needed to be spruced up. Waldron's came up trumps! We needed our three-piece sofas and chairs recovered within a week!

We now have the most beautiful suite recovered looking brand new and we are delighted with the results.

Waldron always does a superb quality job on all our refurbishments and never let us down."

Hill House School

"I’ve just come back from Brownlow Yard and want to let you know that the sofas and chairs look fantastic!"

LM, Faber Music

"............before "finding" Waldron, I had received some very negative responses from several other upholstery firms.......... ..........from the time Waldron was recommended to me I received helpful, sympathetic and effective advice, from my initial enquiry, with no "pushy" sales pressure at any time..........

Given the complex work involved, and choice of strong material, and the high quality of personal service I thought your charges were extremely reasonable. Certainly infinitely cheaper than having to completely replace an essential chair.

I was delighted with the work done. The upholstery looks to have been done to a very high standard, on what as I have mentioned was quite a challenging chair to work on. The fabric looks superb, and in fact, the chair looks better than it did before

I am so pleased that I have found Waldron's and will not hesitate to recommend your Company to anyone I have contact with who might be seeking a similar service."

Back Shop Customer

".......We have been very impressed with your service. Both the quality of the workmanship and your courtesy has made it a pleasure dealing with you. Thank you for a beautifully refurbished chair Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851 ......... I am writing to confirm just how pleased we have been with the work you have done for us recently. The recovered chairs now exactly the colour we wanted, look as good as new and have made the surgery look the way we want it to look.

Many, many thanks - we will be recommending you whenever the opportunity arises."

Nuffield Foundation
