With over 40 years’ hands on experience including 5 years in the London UK antique trade, we are the furniture specialists and will bring out the beauty in any piece.

If you require a quote for leather upholstery or leather lounge repairs in Brisbane, or any other type of furniture restoration, you can request an estimate here by providing photos of the piece.

Bring your leather pieces back to life

Many leather sofas, arm chairs and lounge suites sold today that are cheap and look great are actually bonded leather and not fully grain hide! What does this mean you say? It means that the tops are plastic coated over a leather backing which will peel off in one to 4 years depending on use, leaving you with terrible looking furniture that has to be thrown out!

All of the materials we use for leather upholstery repairs/re-covering is genuine full grain cow hide leather (leather top and bottom) and when used in conjunction with the Pelle Master care kit that we supply with all larger leather orders, your furniture will last you for many long years! A 3 piece lounge suite consisting of a 3 seater sofa and 2 arm chairs, or 2 x 2 seater plus one arm chair will normally cost to recover in leather at $60 per square meter, between $4,500 and $6,000.

Quality repairs for a long-lasting result

Unless you pay thousands of dollars today you will only be buying something that looks good for a short time before you start having problems with it. Even when you do pay a lot of money now, there is still the chance that you will be caught out with something that looks the part but ends up giving you trouble within 12 to 36 months. We get calls weekly from people in this situation who have lost their money as most warranties have expired or the companies that sold it to them have gone out of business. If you need leather lounge repairs in Brisbane, ABR Home Industries can help.

On the other hand, if you have a 10 to 150 year old lounge suite for example, and come to us for leather lounge repairs, then you will have furniture that will last another 10 to 20 years trouble free, will look good and be comfortable; and you will be happy knowing that you own quality furniture.

You have the advantage of getting your furniture covered in exactly what you want, which is a service many other stores don’t offer. When you come to us for leather upholstery repairs you get a hand crafted quality upholstery job and not a production line mass assembly situation, where anything can happen and quite often does. We also restore, repair and repolish many wonderful pieces of antique, period, and older furniture so just ask us for a quote.

We know our trade inside and out

With the experience of the manager Colin, you will be assured of getting the best possible leather upholstery repairs in Brisbane. Colin has been doing all aspects of upholstery and restoration for over 40 years, and has worked for a number of years in the UK antique trade.

We don’t say we offer Brisbane’s cheapest prices when it comes to leather lounge or upholstery repairs, as you only get what you pay for. However, we do guarantee to rebuild your sofa, lounge suite or chair correctly and well, from the frame up, to give you years of trouble free use.

We are amazed by the number of older pieces of furniture that we get for leather upholstery repairs into our Brisbane workshop, that when we strip it down, there are up to 5 or more old covers underneath that previous upholsterers have simply gone over the top of the old fabric and never actually fixed anything underneath.

We guarantee that we will rebuild underneath the correct way the first time, even though you can’t see what’s there, it is essential to have your furniture rebuilt correctly so it lasts the maximum time for you to get value and your money’s worth out of it.

PLEASE NOTE! We don’t give estimates over the phone without seeing an image/photo of the furniture due to the large number of designs around.
Asking for a quote without details is a bit like saying “how much is a car?”

Thank you so much for my couch.  I am really thrilled with it. Sorry I didn't have my other one done by you and not that other mob.  That may be another job for the future.
We had our 3 and 2.5 seater Australian made sofas recovered by Colin and his team as well as a silky oak piano stool renovated and reupholstered. We couldn't be happier with the result. Separate to the obvious quality of workmanship, what really stood out was the service. Colin was also responsive in terms of communication and was patient - with the majority of our correspondence over email and several months ...

Had three items restored. One was an old sofa with wood and metal frame. The mattress and upholstery had long since gone missing. ABR restored this to new condition with new matching mattress and upholstery. Next was an old meat safe which has been in the family for well over 100 years and was really showing its age. It has been restored to original condition back to the original timber ...
