About Florrie + Bill

Hi, and thank you for visiting my website!

I established Florrie + Bill in early 2012 when I first transformed a vintage sofa I found at my local YMCA store in to something spectacular. I decided to replace it's worn-out leather seats for fabric ones and give the whole piece a little TLC. That first sofa sold really quickly - so I set about finding other vintage and retro chairs to restore. 

Named after my grandparents, 'Florence and William' and inspired by my memories of their retro furnished home in Kingstanding, Birmingham - the name, and my passion is personal.

After working from home (and outgrowing it!) in February 2015 I moved into a studio in Long Eaton which now houses our showroom and workshop. 

All of our chairs are fully restored and reupholstered by a small team of highly skilled upholsterers in Long Eaton, Nottingham - an area synonymous with the art of upholstery. All of our pieces are fully stripped, frames are repaired as required and are reupholstered using both traditional and modern methods. Our upholsterers have many years of experience and you can be assured our chairs are restored to the highest standard and with care. 

In November 2016, I launched our debut and exclusive fabric range 'THE STUDIO COLLECTION' in London. Sarah Fennell, my Creative Assistant helped in the design of this collection, and we are currently working on a new SS18 collection. 

When I am not working, I look after my son, Stanley 4, and enjoy renovating our current home.
