Testimonials

Thank you so much for the care and attention from yourself and the team involved in creating my chair.  It’s absolutely beautiful and is everything I wanted it to be.  From the first contact through to delivery and follow up the service has been superb. At every stage I’ve felt you really understood what I was trying to achieve and the expert advice to select the right fabric, design and finish is what sets you apart from the usual high street retailers.  I will be sure to consider your services for future projects and highly recommend your company.

We recently had the pleasure of using the services of The Original Chair Company in Scone which provides sofa cushion refills and we couldn’t be happier with the results. The team was professional and helpful throughout the whole process and were able to breathe new life into our sofa with their top quality cushion refills. The cushions are now much more comfortable and supportive. 
 
We highly recommend this company to anyone looking for high quality sofa cushion refills. The attention to detail and commitment to customer satisfaction was truly impressive.

The furniture arrived safely. It is beautiful. We are really thrilled with it. It looks very nice in our room and even our offspring thought it was nice!The delivery guys were extremely helpful and professional. We couldn’t fault them nor could we fault the service you have all given us at your company.
 

Sheila, January 2023

This was quite a journey of trust for me, as I hadn’t envisaged choosing my new chairs, and upholstery fabrics and wood finishing without ever having visited The Original Chair Company, or sat in my chosen Camille style chair. But both Sarah and Kate were so helpful, providing excellent support and advice by phone and email, and I am very happy with my finished chairs, and added cushions.
 

Elizabeth H, Cambridge, December 2022

After many fruitless visits to furniture stores finding The Original Chair Company saved our sanity!  In just one afternoon Kate helped us to transform our sitting room. We chose new pieces from the extensive range of sofas and chairs on show and were guided unerringly towards fabrics to compliment the existing furnishings.  At the same time re-upholstery of a favourite chair was agreed (and later another was added). Fabric samples arrived within days. Final choices were made and the order was completed very professionally, down to diagrams agreeing the precise alignment of motifs on the scatter cushions.

We were kept informed of the time scale for the work throughout and when we had to ask for a last minute change in the delivery time, Kate contacted the courier during the weekend.

We are more than delighted with our new furniture. The quality of the upholstery is second to none, the fabrics work perfectly with our Turkish rug and the whole room feels fresh and uncontrived.

Nothing was too much trouble for Kate, Sarah and Moira. There is no doubt that we shall return for more. 

We cannot recommend The Original Chair Company highly enough.

Maureen, October 2022

I am writing to thank you for our lovely new furniture.

Your friendly and personal service is second to none and we appreciated been given time, in a relaxed atmosphere, to consider our options and to take on board your good advice.

We are delighted with the small chair we bought off your shop floor and the two wing chairs are wonderfully comfortable.  The wing chairs are upholstered in a large patterned fabric and the workmanship in pattern placing and matching is fantastic.  I do similar work myself and so particularly understand the quality.

We wish you and your company every success.

Anne, September 2022

We are delighted with the beautiful chair we purchased from The Original Chair Company. The fabric is beautiful and it is incredibly comfortable and beautifully made. It fits into our room just perfectly. 

Kate was an absolute delight to work with, incredibly helpful and friendly. I will definitely return if I need any other advice or require furniture or soft furnishings. 

Wonderful experience start to finish, many thanks.

Sheena Stewart, August 2022

We’re delighted with our new sofa from The Original Chair Company.

The unusual shape was just what we had been searching for.

Kate was an enormous help finding us just the right fabric, filling and coordinating cushions.

We will be recommending them to all our friends.

Elizabeth Stewart, August 2022

Thank you for all the attention. It has been quite outstanding in this day and age to deal with people who have taken the time and trouble to assist so courteously.

I have a feeling that I may be back.

Lesley Anderson, June 2022

We are delighted with our ottoman.  It really looks like a new piece of furniture and the fabric is stunning – exactly the colour we had been looking for.  Moira was so helpful and patient in searching for suitable fabrics within our budget and the end result is lovely. The seat pad for our storage bench is also excellent.

We would like to thank you for the really excellent customer service and we would definitely come back to you for any future work we are considering.

Udo & Pauline Pausch, Perth, May 2022

We were very happy with the service you’ve provided throughout and are delighted with the result. It’s amazing what a difference the refreshed chair and stool make to the room. 

Steve Bruce, Perth, April 2022

We are delighted with the chair. The service from start to finish has been faultless.

Kirsty Tonge, Perth, February 2022

The chair is stunning, it is my new best friend. 

Very high quality and a beautiful design.

Terri, Norfolk, February  2022

Thank you so much for the beautiful Ladies Howard chair you have just delivered in my own choice of fabric.  It looks stunning and sits very happily alongside the antique chair you re-upholstered for me.  I searched a long time for a traditional-style armchair that would fit into a period-cottage setting, but just as importantly, one that is comfortable, well-made and doesn’t cost the Earth.  Your Ladies Howard chair fits the bill perfectly! 

Sue Harrison, Cumbria, February  2022

The new chair looks perfect in the room. I am delighted with the style and choice of fabric that you helped us with. 

Rosemary Chambers, Banchory, November 2021

We were so pleased to have found The Original Chair Company. We couldn’t be more pleased with our 2 chairs, the fabric and the upholstery. It was a difficult time as due to covid there were issues with the supply chain but we were always informed and kept up to date with their progress. The customer service was excellent. I would recommend this company and hope I can find an excuse to use them again. (That won’t be difficult!)

Frippy Fyfe, St Andrews, November 2021

Thank you for all your help and subtle management of colour choices. You have an amazing eye. The line of the sofa is so elegant, a pleasure to see in the room, especially having the lowered back. The whole scheme has achieved what I had in mind. Classic, tailored, modern and definitely WOW!

Perth, October 2021

Thank you for the lovely stool. It looks absolutely beautiful and I was really impressed how well made it is and the quality of the finish.

It looks absolutely lovely in front of the fireplace. When I get the matching chair (old one being re-covered) it will look fantastic!

Very well packaged and delivery on the date it was expected!
Great job.

Rosanna Parker, Wiltshire, October 2021

I was aware of the work of The Original Chair Company so when I decided to bring old chairs back to life I had no hesitation in commissioning the project to Kate.
The quality of work is absolutely fabulous and the chairs restored expertly.  I also commissioned roman blinds to be installed, which are beautifully made and installed expertly with minute attention to detail.
Their patience is also endless whilst I asked for many, many fabric samples.
It has been a pleasure to work with The Original Chair Company.

Susan White, Blair Atholl, September 2021

We just wanted to thank you once again for your help with choosing our new sofa. We are absolutely delighted with it.

Alan Downie, Glasgow, August 2021

We were so pleased with the sofa and chair that you did a little while ago, and the chair that you have just done has been greatly admired only this afternoon! The chair looks amazing, thank you for a first class bit of work. I am glad that the selection of the material has worked so well, it was a bit of an indulgence on my part but it has all come together thanks to your expertise – well done.

Malcolm Hutton, Aboyne, July 2021

We are very pleased with the new sofa and cushions. It does not only look stunning but is extremely comfortable to sit on.

Alan Downie, Glasgow, July 2021

We are thrilled with the footstool and ordering it through your company was both easy and pleasurable. 

Anne Coventry, Cheltenham, July 2021

It’s been great dealing with you. It is so good to deal with an independent company who listens and understands what we are looking for. The choice of fabrics is amazing and your help in selecting co-ordinating fabrics was much appreciated. The sofas are just what we wanted and the delivery times much shorter than larger companies. We are so pleased to have found The Original Chair Company and would look no further when buying future pieces.

Anne Malcolm, Clackmannanshire, June 2021

Bespoke large footstool with built in polished wooden tray – We absolutely love it! It’s in a room we don’t use every day and more so for when people are up so unfortunately with lock down etc I feel like we’ve not put it to full use here but we are really delighted with it. 

Catherine McGinty, Glasgow, June 2021

We are delighted with our chairs!

Linda Middleton, Edinburgh, June 2021

I LOVE THIS SOFA! I would highly recommend The Original Chair Company, the service was exceptional – very helpful and considered. The Sofa is beautifully crafted and even more beautiful than I hoped it to be.
