Recently relocating back to her childhood home of the Isle of Bute (off the West Coast of Scotland) Sarah Jane continues to offer a bespoke service to restore, revive and re-upholster antique, mid century and modern furniture.  Unique creations are coaxed from tired and worn pieces both through traditional and/or modern upholstery methods and your commission begins with an obligation free home visit to assess your piece and discuss options for it’s restoration.

With a knowledge of fabrics and a flair for colour Sarah Jane can advise on your fabric choice, and supply fabrics at less than retail price.

In summer 2019 Sarah Jane introduced her own range of textile designs – The Bulloch Collection – using illustrations of the Isle of Bute by the late Lyn Bulloch. With a mid century vibe and a colourful contemporary twist this 100% organic cotton fabric has been crafted into homeware; luxury cushions (partnered with Bute wool) and drum lampshades, as well as gifts; tea towels, table napkins and wash bags & glasses cases. The fabric can also be purchased by the metre for your own soft furnishing or upholstery project.

In addition Sarah Jane continues to sell unique pieces of beautifully restored vintage furniture and handmade bespoke cushions. For more details please contact Sarah Jane via the website or see what’s coming up on her Instagram feed.

Tub chair upholstered by Sarah Jane Hemsley Upholstery“Thank you for bringing our tired over 100 years old chairs back to life and to new levels of comfort. We are very pleased indeed with your work.

We love the way the pattern of the material is so carefully aligned and the piping is beautifully done too.

They have become favourite chairs again.”
