Fabric Selection & Advice

Adele works hard to provide a wide variety of fabric, leather and vinyl sampling as she can to cater for many tastes.
Along with this is her keen eye for colour and an amazing knack to couple a customer’s particular style with the right fabric, not only to suit the customer’s needs but that of the furniture also.

Adele believes in spending quality time with the customer in the showroom to steer them in the right direction. She is devoted to helping them achieve the look ‘they will love’.

The Emperor’s Footstool boasts a beautiful showroom on site, and customers are encouraged to take home sampling to view.
Our showroom is stocked with sampling from: Warwick, James Dunlop, Clarke and Clarke, Charles Parsons, Textilia, Raffles linens and more.

Adele brings so much enthusiasm to her work and this is highlighted most in her advice with fabric selection and her in home consultations. You will feel listened to and sense the passion come through with your time with Adele in the showroom, with the confidence that you are talking to the upholsterer who will do the work.

And who can beat that female perspective.


Adele not only brings with her the ability to upholster but also a passion for design. She understands that customers, although know that they need a change, aren’t always able to imagine or articulate what that change might look like.

In home consultations are priceless because it allows Adele to view the furniture ‘in situ’ so as to see how they will fit in and what colour and style is needed. Also Adele is able to see ahead of time what the piece will look like and this helps her pass on her confidence to the customer concerning its suitability. Adele helps the customer to ‘catch the vision’ leaving them excited and ready for their new look.

New projects – no problem. Adeles love for design and visionary aspect allows her to ‘see the design’ for new business refits and homes. Custom upholstery can be achieved in consultaion with Adele and Dean, along with advice on foam and fabrics required to achieve the look.

Adele is able to work along side other trades people to achieve the look the customer is looking for.
