Gallery Direct’s product catalogue includes a selection of beautifully upholstered furniture. Each offers the same high quality and value for money, but the variety of styles ensure there is one to suit all interiors. Peter Delaney, managing director, commented: “We introduced our new Upholstery in January to offer different ‘capsule’ looks, and we are delighted with how well they have been received.”

“We only use quality materials to give Products that are built to last,” continued Peter. “Solid wood and OSB frames give strength and durability. But comfort is also important, so each range is designed and manufactured using the materials and construction method best suited to its particular style to give the optimum comfort. Internal webbing support, serpentine springs, fibre, super soft foam, and finest feather quilt are cleverly combined in different ways to best suit each model.”

Designed to give a modern twist on the classic Chesterfield, the Hampton collection gives the ultimate in comfort and luxury. It features gently sloping arms and deep hand buttoning, produced by highly skilled craftsmen. Three models are available – a sofa, an ottoman and an armchair. All are offered in two fabrics, Brussels velvet and Field linen, each in three different colours. Brussels shows off the models’ sensual curves and offers a luxurious feel, whereas Field has a slightly rougher, textured appearance to suit different tastes. The beautiful antique finished solid show-wood feet add to the elegance and prestige.

In contrast, Shoreditch offers a ‘Scandi’ style which would make a perfect addition to any modern house. This flexible range offers a 2-seater and a 3-seater sofa and an armchair with elegant buttoning on the backs, along with a footstool. Shoreditch is upholstered in a hard-wearing washed cotton fabric with a raw hand-woven appearance, and is available in four lovely subtle hues. The solid wooden frame gives strength and durability, whilst the back and cushions are designed for comfort. The solid show-wood beech tapered legs give an elegant stance to the pieces.


Gallery’s London range offers a stylish contemporary take on ‘Classic Chic’ for a boutique hotel feel. The sofa is available as a 2 or 3 seater with a deep sensual sit which recovers well after use, and there is an accompanying ottoman. Upholstered in ultra-smooth Brussels velvet, in a choice of four colours, London would look equally at home in a house, apartment, or city warehouse pad.

These beautiful pieces feature a stylish Design combined with traditional craftsmanship, and are upholstered in a beautiful, durable retro fabric in a choice of grey for a more subtle effect or teal for a bold look. To complete the design, Holborn stands on elegant solid beech wooden feet.

The final range of fabric upholstered seating is Stratford which would look equally at home in a country cottage or urban loft. With its simple elegance, Stratford is built for comfort and style. This versatile collection includes a 2-seater and 3-seater sofa, an armchair and a footstool, along with a chaise sofa for luxurious relaxing. Stratford is available in soft velvet and classic linen, each in a choice of three colours. The two fabrics give this classic model very different looks!

Gallery’s catalogue also includes leather upholstered chairs. Datsun features an elegantly designed polished show-wood frame, whereas Bristol is a stylish high-backed chair on a metal swivel base. Both are available in a choice of Antique Ebony and Saddle Tan leather.

Also in Gallery’s upholstery collection are two beautiful bedsteads, York and Knightsbridge. York was designed to create a modern upholstered bed for contemporary bedrooms whilst maintaining the traditions of elegance and comfort. The beautiful soft velvet fabric used is available in a choice of four lovely colours, from a subtle grey to a bold rosewood. In contrast, Knightsbridge is a classic boudoir style bedstead. Made using the finest craftsmanship including deep hand buttoning, Knightsbridge is upholstered in velvet or linen, each in a choice of two different colours.   

Peter continued, “All our upholstered furniture features quality materials and craftsmanship to produce products that are designed to look good and last, at value for money prices. Following the success of this current collection, we have developed some new pieces to add to our catalogue to give customers more choice. One of these is the Soho lounge chair which features leather upholstery combined with hand finished metal. We’ll be launching this and other new products at the Autumn Fair. We’re also exhibiting at Top Drawer for the first time this year which we’re really looking forward to.”
