Furnishings Studio was started in South East London by Josie Foster in 1981. Initially Josie focused on making loose covers, cushions and bedroom furnishings. Soon she added handmade curtains and pelmets as well as handmade soft blinds and then roller blinds.
Today Furnishings Studio helps clients across London and the South East with all their soft furnishing needs, supplying and fitting all types of blinds including roman and roller blinds, shutters and roof blinds. We also fit bespoke handmade own curtains and pelmets to our clients’ specification. Over the years we’ve fitted long curtains and short, pencil pleat, triple pinch pleat, goblet, eyelet, tab top and more.
With the furniture, we are able to make sofas and arm chairs according to the customers’ measurements. We also have an upholstery service which enables us to restore antique furniture and repair where necessary. We can also provide loose covers – fabric coverings for chairs and sofas – which are a great way to update a much loved piece of furniture.
Furnishings Studio has a good choice of fabrics and wallpapers from companies such as Colefax and Fowler, Pierre Frey and Zimmer and Rohde which are supplied directly from the manufacturer. The Studio itself holds a good range of sample books to help give our clients inspiration.
Josie is always keen to meet her clients in their homes before projects commence as seeing the property, where the soft furnishings will be sited and how the client lives is very important in ensuring that the finished product is exactly right.
The final piece of the Furnishings Studio jigsaw is our excellent fitting teams who are perfectionists with remarkable attention to detail. They make sure that the soft furnishings we produce are presented in the best way possible.
