The Speciality Upholstery Services foundation began by serving a rigorous apprenticeship during the 1980s with an old established firm which was formed during the Second World War.

We then started out as S.B.Restorations in 1986 specialising in the restoration of antiques.  With the need to preserve the quality and uniqueness of traditional furniture, meticulous attention to detail was learnt and has become a firm principle.

Earlier this decade, with a growing trend towards buying of new residential furniture, rather than restoration of the old, we expanded our business to cater for new markets where we saw a compelling need for quality upholstery – both to repair in-use upholstered furniture, and to realise bespoke new creations, such as those now often demanded in the hospitality and residential sectors.  With this change of direction to embrace the Medical, Hospitality and Marine sectors in additional to Residential work, our company name changed to ‘Specialist Upholstery Services – The SUS Group’ – as we are known today.


Put simply, our ethos is simple, honest, on-time quality service.

In reality this means working with you to achieve your vision of an upholstered masterpiece. We will design alongside you, use fabrics of your choice, and provide quotes and invoices that have no hidden clauses.

Our craftsmanship is to the same standard. With approximately 90% of the craftmanship in upholstery hidden beneath the surface, we guarantee you that the internal build up is really as good as it looks – ensuring durability and reliability.

Furthermore, to support our confidence in our quality work, we offer you a unique Warranty Support.  This is customised based on the era of the furniture and its environment of use.
