It pays to refurbish.

 The UK disposes of over £18 billion worth of business seating every year?

Research has indicated that at least 50%, of the seating disposed off can be refurbished and reused.

To put this into context imagine saving half of your seating budget!  

Waldron has over 30 years specialist experience in contract chair and soft seating refurbishment. Not only can we recover your seating in materials, faux leather, vinyl or leather we can also supply and fit components for most major chair manufacturer's. So if your arm pads are damaged, your gas pistons are soft, bases are broken or castors are missing we can return your chair to its former glory. All at a fraction of the price of buying a new replacement.

What we do and how we do it 'explainer' video


Office seating generally consists of a complicated construction of plastics, metals, foam, synthetic and natural fibres which are not easy (or viable) to separate and will usually go straight into landfill. Reusing furniture is environmentally friendly as it will only be the damaged component that is replaced, saving up to 90% of the CO2 used when buying a new replacement.

If you’re searching for a recover office chair service, either as a one-off or a regular service, here at Waldron Furniture we are able to work with you to help save on the cost in replacing your furniture by restoring it to its former glory, making for a better environment in the process.

The friendly expert team here at Waldron are on hand to provide you with a complete, client-focused service. With our recover office chair service…

We Assess

The friendly Waldron team offer a free no obligation quotation where we will visit your site, assess your chairs, discuss any faults with the seating, and inform you about the cost for repair and refurbishment. Additionally, as a part of this assessment, our team will give guidance regarding health and safety, fire regulations, as well as any practical or logistical considerations that may affect your repairs.

Once an item arrives at our premises, each item is then re-assessed in detail, with any faults being confirmed.

We understand that every chair is different; as such prices will depend on the age, make, the condition of the seating, and the repairs that are required. Whilst taking the original operation of the seating into account, we will always put safety first as the primary consideration of our assessment.

We Collect

All work is carried out on Waldron Furniture premises to minimise disruption to your working day. This also helps to eliminate air and noise pollution! Additionally, on our premises we have the resources, tools, and equipment to ensure that your chairs are refurbished professionally and safely. 

We run weekly collection and delivery services to all areas we cover, with some areas (such as London) being visited several times a week. Our regular collection service makes it easy and efficient for you to get ad-hoc repairs made to any of your furniture, or plan a regular collection and delivery program for a larger project.

We Renovate

With our experienced team of upholsterers, we offer an extremely wide scope of repair services ranging from branded designer office chairs with sophisticated mechanisms, to traditional seating with horse hair padding, hessian webbing, and leather embossing. Additionally, as we carry out the renovation work at our premises, we are able to allocate the best and appropriate skills and expertise to each specific job.

We specialize in the contract quality materials required for use in specific UK workplaces such as the business, healthcare, education, and hospitality markets. We offer a wide range of industry-standard commercial fabrics (including faux or genuine leather and vinyl) which are suitable for use in UK work environments. 

We only use new components and hold original manufacturer’s components for popular brands in stock. We also hold a comprehensive range of high-quality generic components which have been tested to exceed standards for commercial use in UK work environments and in many cases; they will be superior to original parts.

We Deliver

Once the repairs have been carried out and the furniture has been checked for quality control, we will deliver your seating back to you. However, our customer service does not end there.

Your assurance of our quality is a 12 month guarantee on all our workmanship and parts. We also like to keep in touch with our customers with a quick phone call every 3 to 6 months. After all, chairs do not break down to order.

However, if you need some repairs done, please call Waldron Furniture without hesitation on 0118 945 5500. Our team are happy to arrange a free assessment and quotation, or just collect your seating.

It Pays To Renovate

'It pays to renovate'


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


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

Premier Model Management

Just a quick line to ask you to pass on our compliments to those involved in the recent recovering of chairs, and re-webbing, new cushions, etc. The service throughout was excellent – including the collection and delivery – and there have been lots of positive, admiring comments from staff, pupils and parents. If you have potential customers requesting testimonials, please don’t hesitate to ask them to contact me. With many thanks,

".......I am sitting proudly on my newly covered sofa. It looks very smart."

C.B. from M. Medical Centre

"............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 coutesy 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, apart from now is 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."
