We had a problem with two leather sofas purchased from a large well known furniture supplier after only a week of use. We felt there was a design issue with the sofa and although the company came out to try and stretch the leather and insert foam support, the problem still existed. After lots of attempts to contact various furniture repairers/upholsterers, we were advised to contact the furniture ombudsman. In the end this resulted in us having to obtain a detailed report from an independent furniture upholsterer to confirm the issues. This was carried out by Mike Oaten of Beaminster Upholstery which ultimately ended in the full amount for the sofas being refunded. We are hugely grateful for Mike’s comprehensive and detailed report which resulted in a successful conclusion to the matter after one year! We would not hesitate in recommending Mike to carry out a similar report for anyone with this problem. He was very helpful in assisting us and dealt with the problem professionally and promptly.

Mike has done a fantastic job reupholstering our 3-seater Parker Knoll sofa. His workmanship is second to none! We provided the fabric (from Livingstones of Bridport) and Mike did the rest, a complete job, replacing part of the structure and adding wooden feet so that the seat was a couple of inches higher than before, making it easier for us to get up. The fabric was a bold choice but Mike matched it superbly. We couldn’t be happier with the outcome.

As a result of Mike’s excellent work we have 2 reupholstered armchairs with which we are very pleased. He has recovered and refurbished them in different materials and they are comfortable and look very good. He provided a helpful, timely and well organised service. Communication by email was easy and questions were dealt with promptly. We highly recommend his work.

Just had 4 dining room chairs reupholstered by Mike, what a wonderful job, excellent craftmanship. Would highly recommend him. Will be using him again.

Mike has done an outstanding job reupholstering our 2 small button back armchairs. He went the extra mile to find a perfect contrasting pink fabric for the piping and buttons. The finished result is perfect. We are very pleased, and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Mike for your upholstery needs.

Jane Duprey

Would thoroughly recommend Mike Oaten. Our two settees needed some replenishment and we’re very satisfied with the finished result. He was also able to remove a heat mark from our dining table. Absolutely marvellous. Very reasonable pricing too. Thank you Mike.

Jenny Kerr

Thank you Mike for the wonderful reupholstery that you did on my Grandfather chair. It looks absolutely amazing. So pleased with it.

Karen Lovering

What a gem Mike Oaten from Beaminster Upholstery is! I would highly recommend Mike for his friendly manner, excellent quality of work and for going above and beyond for us to fit into our tight schedule. Mike upholstered a sofa and two chaise longue for us and they are beautiful!
