Meticulous was launched by owner Katie, to share her passion for creative upholstery and furniture restoration, through upholstery courses and commissions.
Each vintage chair tells a story. They evoke special memories, bring warmth to your home and showcase the value of skilled craftsmanship. Katie, loves good design and hates waste. Restoring and renewing well-made furniture is part of moving away from a wasteful way of living and towards a more respectful and sustainable relationship with the objects around us. This also fosters a better sense of community. Everywhere people are beginning to make, do, share and get involved.
Katie is a City & Guilds qualified upholsterer and maker with a degree in the History of Art & Design and an MA in Heritage Management. She has taught craft skills for the past 10 years, having previously working in the furniture industry as a City & Guilds Trainer/Assessor. There, she taught traditional upholstery courses to apprentices and basic furniture making to young people who were struggling in mainstream education. Before her upholstery training, she worked for organisations including The National Archives and the National Trust, where she gained special insight into the history of designed objects and the stories they tell.
