I think the ability to upholster and restore furniture is absolutely brilliant. To be able to take a tired, old piece of furniture and breathe new life into it is fantastic. That's exactly what Jacqui de Heer does with her business Pompom Home. With a love of retro furniture, Pompom Home takes pre-loved pieces and injects some personality back into them. Let me introduce you to some of their current collection...
Captain Peacock is a three seater mid century sofa that was designed by the iconic Fred Lowen. He has been fully refurbished using traditional methods and reupholstered in stunning peacock blue velvet - oh la la, I love him!
Curious George is a handsome mid century rocking chair. His mahogany arms looks great next to striking yellow fabric and plush grey buttons and piping. His twin sister Curious Georgina is sold separately. Could you bear to part them?!
If you're a fan of George then you'll love Ziggy Stardust in a gorgeous inky blue chevron fabric with mustard velvet piping and buttons. He also has a twin, Zippy.
You won't just find chairs and sofas at Pompom Home, there are also bedheads and cushions, and Jacqui will be adding more to her range all the time. I highly recommend 'liking' Pompom Home on Facebook to keep up with any new arrivals.
If you're thinking that chair you inherited from Gran could do with some of this magic, Pompom Home offers a bespoke furniture restoration service. They can take your old piece, source new fabric, reupholster, rejuvenate the wood work and turn it into something beautiful again. Get in touch for more details. I'll leave you with this gorgeous chair for inspiration. As you can see it's already gone to it's new home, but don't you just love the dark chocolate brown with the leafy green fabric?!
