At Rob Mann Upholstery, we have over 42 years’ experience in the upholstery of furniture, antiques, vehicles, bikes and boats and we are proud of our traditional craftsmanship.

Upholstery is a specialised skill requiring expertise and knowledge and we understand the care and professional proficiency needed to breathe life into your much loved items.

We treat both our customers and the project in hand with the utmost respect, and we are happy to provide a selection of references for you to contact for your peace of mind.



If you have a project in mind, big or small, we want you to be able to contact us in the best manner that suits you.

Feel free to contact us via :


Once we have established your requirements, we then find a suitable date for us visit your home and view the project. We will provide a free verbal quote for the work required during our visit. Generally, our area covers a 120 km radius, but we are open to travel discussions if you have a multiple item upholstery project.

Upholstery Fabric

Fabric is a hugely individual choice, and as micro-entrepreneurs, we don’t hold stock but advise you on the best place to purchase good quality upholstery fabric in your chosen style. See more here.

During our visit, your project will be measured and you will be advised on the number of metres of fabric required.

Written Quote

We always follow up our visit with a written quote, also known as a Devis here in France. Your quote will detail the labour costs and will advise the number of metres of fabric required.

Photos & Pricing

Unfortunately it is impossible to price individual projects over the phone or on seeing photographs. A home visit is necessary to see and feel the item, to determine exactly what is required to complete the project. Some foam, springs, webbing or frame requirements aren’t always noticed to an untrained eye.

Once you are happy with your quote and your ordered fabric has arrived, we make an appointment to visit and collect your item/s.

As a guide, we should deliver back to you within 4-6 weeks of collection – this timescale may be extended if specialist work materials are required but we will always keep you updated.
