Based in Brighton I've been upholstering for a good few years now. If you are wondering who Doris is, she was the rescue staffy cross who inspired the name. Sadly no longer with us but never forgotten!

AMUSF * trained,  I undertake modern and traditional upholstery with a special focus on my love of Mid Century Modern and have studied hand woven chair caning at West Dean college of Art and Conservation.

The great art and craft of traditional upholstery, using age old techniques and natural materials, makes it a long lasting and sustainable means of adding new life to favourites pieces and heirlooms.

Modern upholstery is ever evolving with innovative materials made from recycled materials and provides an economic way to revive furniture.

Fabric research is always a pleasure, identifying and sampling a selection to meet the practical and aesthetic needs of the client.

Opportunities to create bespoke pieces and work on the more unusual of projects is another joy of the job.

I've had the pleasure to work for award winning Visual Merchandisers and Prop Makers. Projects for Lucky Fox including the conception and production of Levis Repair kits for Levis Europe and in store upholstery for the London Haus. Also hand made drapery for a Selfridges Xmas window, window display elements for Lululemon at Harrods and their flagship Regent Street store and working on luxe seating at Victoria's Secret W1 emporium.

For Hello Flamingo I undertook the pressed caning of window displays for Tory Burch in London, Berlin and Paris flagship stores and soft furnishing projects in Barbour London.
