A restoration project for Whitehead Designs

A restoration project for Whitehead Designs

Taking five minutes off from trying to rescue the building, we thought it was time to rescue an equally lovely something from the inside – a gorgeous Knole sofa, which has clearly seen better days.

There are not many people you can trust to restore a lovely upholstered antique like this using the proper traditional techniques, but Whitehead Designs Limited are definitely the guys for the job.  They make amazing new furniture as well by the way!

So Sinai’s Knole sofa has been loaded into the Whitehead Designs van – no mean feat as it’s a beast of a size – and gone on its travels to the Whitehead Designs workshops in Long Eaton, Derbyshire and will be away for a month or so.  We’ll be tracking its progress and very much looking forward to its fully restored return! Watch this space…
