An award-winning upholstery service that is dedicated as a small business to deliver the results you are after.

The Floral Chicken is a venture by Stuart and Gail providing both traditional and modern upholstery.

Having worked in the NHS for many years Stuart retrained as an Upholsterer with the Ministry of Upholstery and now has a busy work schedule with many local clients. In our early days we found a lot of chairs needing to be rescued and brought back to life. These are sold on line and through our attendance at the artisan Duck Pond Markets in Ruislip and Chalfont's St Giles. These markets are also an ideal place to discuss your own projects as well, alongside seeing other independent  makers covering all sorts of items. we do less chair rescues than we used to as we have built a large and growing clientele wishing to have their own pieces done but still try to make sure we have something on the stall each market.

We are able to offer a full Upholstery / re-upholstery service in both traditional and modern upholstery techniques and can source a whole range of fabrics for you. We generally cover the areas around Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire including areas like Princes Risborough, Thame, Haddenham, Areas near our markets such as Ruislip, Uxbridge, Harrow, Watford, Northwood, Pinner, The Chalfont's, Gerrard's Cross and most areas in South Bucks. However we are always happy to hear from you

Upholstery is a skilled process and bespoke work does give you the opportunity to taylor pieces to your own desire while also helping to reduce your impact on the environment. If you would like to explore the opportunities then please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Stuart repaired and reupholstered my ancient and tattered art deco sofa for me. I am absolutely delighted with the the work he has done, it looks like new and I get lots of comments about how beautiful it is! He has done the work sympathetically with the style and age of the sofa and he was great with helping me choose the right fabric and trim. Stuart kept me updated on the progress of the renovation and any unexpected issues, as it is an almost 100 year old peice. I would highly recommend Stuart if you need any upholstery work.
