We had a chair refurbished, new foam, new upholstery, webbing and the wooden frame touched up. The work was carried out to a high standard and within the promised time frame. The end result is a chair that looks like new, is again comfortable to sit on and is good for another 30 years use.

My 30 year old suite looks like new!

Can’t believe the transformation – thrilled with my beautiful new suite!

Gems has just done the most amazing job of re-upholstering my 45 year old suite. It now looks as good as new. I can’t believe how well it has been done as it required quite a bit of buttoning and piping. Joe has done a thoroughly professional job and I am absolutely delighted with the result.

It is not my first time of using Gems and, on both occasions, they have done a truly excellent job. They also collected and delivered at the promised time.

If you want an outstanding job done, then Gems is the company to use.

First class service.

Fantastic company would highly recommend for any furniture repairs.

First class customer service and attended on agreed date and time.

Re-Upholstered sofa

Gems Re-Upholstery did an excellent job of re-covering an old sofa, and we’re pleased with the results.

Quality work and Great customer service!

Gems Upholstery was recommended to me, when I was looking to have my old and cat-worn sofa and sofa-bed re-upholstered. I experienced efficient, friendly service from first consultation, to when the sofas were delivered back to me, a little earlier than I had expected. The standard of work is superb, and I’m delighted with them.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this business to anyone!


Excellent service, reasonably priced.

Sofa Repair

We had an old sofa in badly need of repairs to each arm as the foam was hanging out.We contacted Gems and met Joe who was confident that it could be repaired.

The work was carried out promptly and successfully and we found Joe to be very friendly and professional in our dealings with him and would certainly use Gems again.

Stunning job

Can’t recommend enough I damaged my husbands inhereted bedroom tall chest of drawers totally recked the finish of the wood. Gem did more than fix the mess they made unit look stunning they made it look so good were going to get rest of bedroom furniture restored in New Year thanks so much LA.

Exceeded all my expectations

Called Joe to ask for an estimate to recover our eight 30 year old dining chairs expecting the worst. From the start his enthusiastic and professional approach to the job was brilliant. He produced samples helped us choose the most suitable material quoted a price and timescale and left us to make up our mind. We decided to go ahead everything was done at the time given i.e.collection,time taken to complete the work and redelivering of the chairs. The results are stunning, look fantastic, and were all done at what we consider a very reasonable price for the quality of work.

I would not hesitate in using Gems again and recommending them to anyone who wants quality work done.

A Wonderful Transformation

I had kept Gems Re-Upholstery phone number from work they did in the past, so when I was given 2 chairs and an ottoman I called Joe from Gems he came out took the chairs and ottoman when he brought them back i was amazed at the transformation.

Anyone looking for an uphosterer call Gems.

My chairs are now gems of beauty thanks to joe @ Gems Re-Upholstery.

Great service from start to finish.

2 Armchairs

Totally amazed with the job Joe and his team did reupholstering my two very tired old armchairs.
They look even better now than they did 10 years ago when I first bought them!
Very professional and friendly service, reasonably priced too for a fantastic job.

Would highly recommend this local business – Many thanks.

Beautiful Job!

I would recommend Gems to anyone looking for a re upholstery as they did a wonderful job with our sofa. This is the first time we have Re-Upholstered our furniture and our sofa has come back like a brand new sofa. Very comfortable to sit on and looks fabulous.

Thank you so much!

Top Quality!

Gem Upholstery were excellent to deal with, from the first phone call, right the way through to the delivery of a fantastically repaired couch!
The frame of my couch had snapped.
After having tried several other upholsterers, who led me to believe that the job would cost nearly £1000 and not worth doing, Gem reassured me that the job could be easily fixed and would cost a small fraction of that price.
The service was very friendly and accommodating.

I would recommend them to anyone!

Excellent Job

I have just received two sofas which Joe and his team have been reupholstering for me. The workmanship is superb and I have been truly impressed with the craftsmanship.

Joe was extremely helpful and courteous and I cannot recommend Gems highly enough.

Delighted with Results

I have recently had a settee, and three chairs re-upholstered by GEMs and am absolutely delighted with the finished results. Great advice choosing materials and style. It’s almost worth the call just to experience Joe, who will always give you his honest opinion.

Would highly recommend to anyone.

Corner Suite

Just had my corner suite re-upholstered and cannot recommend Gems Re-Upholstery highly enough.

Picked up on time, delivered on time, great range of fabrics, great price …all round excellent service….suite looks brand new.

Thank you

Eastwood Sofas

Just received our two Eastwood Sofas back from Gems Re-Upholstery. Absolutely magnificent work. Both look brand new.

Thoroughly delighted with the workmanship and service provided.

Once again thanks Joe.

On time and on budget

In December 2015, we visited Gems’ workshop to check them out. They were helpful and friendly. We chose material there and then. A few days later, they collected eight dining chairs which were repaired, recovered and returned in time for Christmas. In early January 2016, our very heavy sofa-bed was collected on a Monday and returned to us on Thursday of the same week. We are delighted with our ‘new’ furniture. The service was prompt and efficient and very reasonably priced.

Many thanks to Joe and his colleagues.

First Class

Cannot fault Gems Reupholstery. Phoned Joe for a price sent picture, got price which was half the price than another reupholsterer had given. Joe picked up the lady chair and did a first class job to recover it.

It now looks as good as new even though it is over 100 years old. I am very pleased with the result.

Superb Service

Cannot praise this company and it’s service highly enough. Just had our newly reupholstered Ercol suite delivered.

Absolutely delighted! We would have no hesitation in recommending GEMS to anyone. Thank you so much.

Fantastic Service and Great Results

I highly recommend Gems Re-Upholstery, they offer a great service with outstanding results.

They recently re-covered my two sofas and my dining room chairs and made a truly outstanding job.


Amazing Amazing Amazing Service which we can’t praise enough – We phoned GEMS thinking the springs in our 20 year old leather sofa were gone, Joe came out to the house. A very professional, extremely knowledgeable and courteous gentleman who informed us that it was the cushions on both our sofas that needed renewed and not the springs. Today our cushions arrived and – WOW, we can’t believe the difference both our sofas are better than the day we bought them 20 years ago.

Would have no hesitation in recommending Gems to everyone and can’t thank everyone in Gems enough for their superb and outstanding service from start to finish, thanks again to everyone in Gems.

Do as they say on the tin…

We have had a few jobs undertaken by Gems now and have found the friendliness of service (Joe) and the professionalism of the output top-class. We had some booth seating and cushions made and have then followed up with some chairs to match. All in all very easy and up to our expectations.

Would recommend and will return.

Excellent !

I am absolutely delighted with my old chair, which has a whole new life in it now ! This company was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish.

I am very pleased with the workmanship and value for money.

Would highly recommend.

Fantastic Re-Upholstery Service.

There is nothing more to say than Gems re-upholstered 4 items of furniture for me, all to the same excellent high standard, with a huge range of fabrics to choose from, excellent service and all at an excellent price (and I shopped around ..).

Fantastic value for money – Highly recommended.

Excellent work of optimum standard from Gems Re-Upholstery.

We cannot rate this company highly enough. Having had jobs done from a 3 piece suite to individual chairs , we would never look elsewhere when seeking to renovate further items nor would we hesitate in recommending Gems to others.

If you love your old furniture, simply get a new look and Gems is the place to go!

Great Service from Gems Re-Upholstery.

I used Gems Re-Upholstery to re-upholster a nursing chair. They provided a great service advising on fabric selection, colours and patterns to fit in with our overall interior design scheme.

The finished chair was fantastic, looked like new. Extremely pleased with the prompt service and cost. A great company to deal with.

TRUE 5 star service!

Some leather antique chairs that had seen a good number of dinner parties and well, were somewhat tired.

The craftsman collected the chairs and delivered them back. I’m blown away with the quality of the work. Its Brilliant.

Great work! I would happily use Gems again. The 5 Star review is well deserved!

Excellent service and quality workmanship

I have used this company for several years to carry out various upholstery jobs both within my own home and for my business. I always receive excellent personal service and the jobs are always finished to a very high standard.

I would Definetely recommend Gems Re-upholstery.

Excellent and friendly service

I recently had a 3 piece suite re-upholstered. I had swithered whether to buy a new one but it was a Reid’s one which had been passed onto me several years ago. I got two quotes and decided to go with Gems because I did not feel I was getting a hard sell and the price was reasonable. I had plenty of time to choose which fabric I liked and when I received it back I was over the moon. Very good workmanship and it looks brand new.

Thanks to Joe and his colleagues

Excellent service and excellent workmanship

What a super company! Recently had an old wooden framed couch and chair given a total makeover – new webbing, cushions and covers. We are thrilled to bits with our “new” suite – so comfortable but completely updated with material chosen from a vast range brought to our home.

A professional, personal and friendly service from Joe Robbin from start to finish.

No hesitation in recommending Gems.
