Quality upholstery services at Brass Tacks 

Brass Tacks specialise in quality upholstery services, fabrics and upholstery supplies. We also sell bronzes and garden ornaments, occasional furniture and other items for the home. Visit our gift shop and browse around a unique collection of gifts and ornaments for everyone. 

Over a period of years now, the shop has undergone changes and new stock has come and gone as we pride ourselves on always being different. We have touched upon many different styles: vintage, classic, reproduction, modern and contemporary, cutting edge, bespoke upholstery and furniture. Occasional pieces are always available along with craft work and hand-carved presents.

We can always guarantee good quality and honest work from our family-run business.

Vinyl, leather and upholstery fabrics

Here in the Brass Tacks shop, we also have an ever-changing collection of pattern books for you to browse through. If you are looking for a specific fabric, just ask us and we can try to source it for you, or browse our collection of quality fabrics.

We also have a vast range of contract fabrics suitable for pubs, hotels and offices, where the demand for a higher specification is required. At the other end of the scale, we stock soft wools and cashmeres. We can also offer advice on choosing the right fabric for you.
