St Joseph’s Church in Gerrard’s Cross had some beautiful wooden bench seats that looked great, but were crying out for some added comfort. The church weren’t sure how to make the seats more comfortable, but maintain the aesthetic. Fortunately they heard of Alpha Furniture’s bespoke upholstery service. A member of the Alpha team met with the church on site to discuss the project with the church, and how their goals could be realised.
After a couple of proposals were put forward, the church decided to opt for individually upholstered sections for both seat and back. The upholstery was decided to be slightly narrower than the exiting wood so as to keep part of the wooden finish visible. This provided a very pleasing border which helps to identify individual seats. The upholstery to the backs also finished shy of the wooden backs, revealing a wooden top rail and shelf around the outside. All of the upholstery was carried out on site over 1.5 days, and neatly finished with studs.
In addition to upholstering the fixed seating, the church added a small number of our UK Made A1LSE chairs with arms. Alpha provided a number of bespoke stain samples for the church to approve against the fixed seating to ensure all of the furniture tied in, with the same fabric selected too.
