Upholstery Fabric options for your dining chair covers

We are very proud of our fabric collection which has been developed with extensive research to find the best cottons and cotton linen unions, through to the strongest washable faux suedes, which offer the best performance for today's modern family kitchen.

Luxurious and functional fabric for dining chairs and benches is no longer just a dream! Our fabrics offer a whole new generation of quality unknown in most of the fabric manufacturing industry. They are incredibly hard-wearing with 'rub counts' of up to 150,000, allowing them to retain their luxurious appearance year after year. Furthermore, the main characteristic of the fabrics we have chosen to use is that they are extremely easy to maintain, in any situation, with any amount of activity, as most stains are easily removable simply by wiping away with a damp cloth or by using warm soapy water for the more stubborn stains, (we have had ours subjected to children, orphan lambs, cats, dogs and even the occasional free range chicken who pops into our kitchen looking for occasional nibbles), thereby avoiding the need to choose your upholstery based on whether it can go in the washing machine or not.

Contemporary dining chairs upholstered by hand

We offer two types of faux suede (stronger and more user friendly than real suede - see below), a stunning range of real leathers and a selection of other upholstery fabrics all chosen for their wide range of colours, texture, strength and durability. They are all so incredibly sensuous to touch and so soft and comfortable to sit on your guests will never want to leave!

We can make upholstered dining chairs with loose fit slip covers, either skirt length or to the floor, our new 'tight fit' slip cover, or our most loved beautifully tailored fixed covers, with either blind stitching, contrast or self-colour twin stitch detail.

We can also make your chairs in your own fabric providing that we can test a sample to make sure that it is suitable for our exacting cutting and sewing requirements, to give us the best fit that we need for our covers.

All our fabrics conform to UK/EEC fire regulations and we are constantly updating our collections based on the latest launches into the international market place of high end design.

Faux Suedes - Alcantara and Comfort

Our most popular fabrics for dining chairs are the faux suedes.  Our full colour range and specific fabric information is available on our Fabric Colours page.

Woven Fabrics

We offer a wide collection of gorgeous woven fabrics, which all have an amazing texture, made in cottons, cotton-linens or linen-viscose blend for greater strength. Due to the nature of woven fabric and their ability to trap dirt in the woven natural structure we would suggest chairs made in these fabrics need to be made as either our loose cover option or our new "tight fit" loose cover, which gives you all the control and tight fit of a loose cover but with the ability to remove it and place in a washing machine, or down to the dry cleaners, subject to the fabrics construction.


Stunning shimmering colours, with sumptuous textures, which can create the hottest settings, velvets are a wonderful addition to our range of fabrics. Yes a bit more care is needed, yet for fine dining, these modern interpretations of classic weaves can create a stunning setting for the most glamorous of dinner parties.
