What our clients say...

"Nicky is inspired in her choices, meticulous in her finishes, and witty in her design.  I have owned a lot of chairs in my life, but the 3 I bought from Sewplush are without doubt my favourites of all time."

Emma Freud, London


"Nicola approaches her work with creativity and perfection. She is a joy to work with and I would utterly recommend her."

Gabriel, London


"Nicky is just extremely good (and efficient) at the many things she does. I always enjoy spending time with her, and have never met anyone else so in love with chairs."

Jancis Robinson, London


"Nicola Lloyd has gladdened our hearts and home with her beautiful furnishings, from cushions to blinds and major upholstery. She has transformed pieces of old, inherited furniture into wonderful objects.

Nicola’s is no ordinary service. Faced with a brief, she will arrive with samples and swatches, so accurately chosen that she appears to have read our minds. She negotiates our taste with patience and without ego, so that we get what we really want.

She is a pleasure to work with, and her collaboration with Philip who restores before she refurbishes, is perfect."

Juliet Sheinman, Wenhaston


"Nicky Lloyd absolutely transformed my Berger sofa and chairs.  I gave her silk brocade with a fish design and challenged her to make sure all the fish swam in the same direction.  It worked.  

Nicky is both an artist and a perfectionist.  The furniture is exquisite thanks to her artistry and skill."

Sita Williams, London

"I had seen some of Nicola's re-upholstery work at the prestigious clothes shop in Southwold,  Colleen and Clare. She always manages to make a chair look special and unique by using fabulous fabrics.

When I was at last in a position to ask her to cover quite a number of items for me and also make curtains and blinds, I was taken on a very pleasant journey of how to mix colour and texture to create a warm but modern interior. I am thrilled with the results. My house looks transformed. The sitting and dining areas are at last places I can be truly proud of. 

Nicola is so talented and knows how to blend colours in the most exciting way, but is also able to make even the oldest look brand new again. I have no hesitation in recommending her services.

A very happy customer!"

Susie Y. Suffolk


"Having shared a few ideas by email  when we met we chose the first of Nicky’s pre-selected fabrics for our dining room chairs, we were off to a great start . It was a perfect choice of pattern, colour and style.  The  3 sofas and 2 chairs followed on and were such fun and stylish.

Nicky’s flair and love of colour helped us branch out from a safe space and the final results including curtains, blinds and cushions have made our new home perfect.

Nicky and Philip  provide a total service breathing life and humour in to our mid-century furniture, hanging the ultra modern curtains and adding the final touches of cushions.

An amazing team."
