Stedsans has grown out of a lifelong love of Scandinavian furniture and I have been sourcing and refurbishing original midcentury sofas and chairs for almost a decade now.
All of this experience and expertise is brought to bear in the restoration decisions I make. Every frame is different, each piece carefully considered and planned, depending on its individual design.
The pieces are stripped back to the frame and skillfully refurbished from the inside out by experienced professionals.
We use high-quality materials and beautiful fabrics we know will age gracefully and be able to withstand modern life – we want our pieces to be as comfortable as they are beautiful.
All the pieces we restore are original midcentury, sourced directly from Scandinavia dating from the 1930s through to the 1970s. Our sofas and chairs come in all shapes, sizes and styles, from the embracing curves of our 1930s banana sofas through to the low-rise clean angled lines of our 60s collection.
We strive to do justice to these frames, giving them a new lease of life whilst respecting their heritage. We want our customers to gain real pleasure in owning a truly unique piece of furniture.
The furniture we restore comes with a story, a previous life lived. The craftsmanship and quality of these authentic midcentury frames gives them a longevity we value and we hope our customers feel the same. Refurbishing vintage furniture gives it a lower carbon footprint and lengthens its life.
We aim to offer our customers access to good design at an affordable price and options for considered purchasing against the tide of the throwaway and disposable. We want our pieces to be cherished, lived with and passed on, (and maybe even reupholstered again down the line..) They will become your future heirlooms.
We use 100% wool for much of our upholstery, a natural material wool is robust and inherently fire retardant for domestic use which means it requires no additional fire retardant treatment.
As part of our bespoke restoration service we can offer reupholstery of our vintage frames using natural materials only, with seat cushion interiors which are a blend of latex, coir, flax, hair and wool. Just drop us a line for more information and we would be happy to quote for you.
We endeavour to deliver our pieces in reuseable furniture bags wherever possible which allows us minimise our use of single use plastic wrap.
