The Out of the Blue Drill HallContact: Anna Horton

Fabrics, patterns, sewing and making have always bubbled away on the back burner of my life, and I’ve been a dedicated junk-shop junkie ever since I found my first patent red leather sneakers for just £3. But it wasn’t until I was several years into an unsatisfying admin career that I finally discovered a way to put all my passions in one pot and make a meal out of it! Upholstery is it for me – specifically the chance to turn a tired, shabby, unloved piece of furniture into something which will be a beautiful and useful part of someone’s home.

I aim to restore pieces, old or new, with sensitivity to the individual character as well as the creativity to see their potential. This might involve a simple recover, but more often than not it involves going back to the frame to rebuild the piece from scratch. I have trained with the some of the best upholsterers in Scotland, using both traditional and modern techniques to achieve the best results for the piece in hand.
