Chameleon Upholstery are Mark & Lisa Stanley.  Our aim is to provide a personal, friendly service to local residents and small businesses.

Mark has been in the upholstery business for 28 years and loves what he does.  He started off making divan bases and headboards and has continued adding to his repertoire ever since.

He particularly enjoys the process of restoring antiques, working closely with colleagues who carry out French polishing and furniture restoration.

Lisa has 26 years experience in customer services and business management and she takes care of the day-to-day running of the businesses, including all administration and correspondence. 

She can also offer advice on fabrics and trimmings and order samples for you.

Our workshop is in Surrey and we cover most locations within Surrey and North West Sussex to collect and deliver furniture.  Small items we ask customers to drop off and collect when we are ready to start.

We carry out all aspects of upholstery from cushions, drop in seats and dining chairs to full recovering of armchairs, sofas and antiques.

We aim to do the highest quality workmanship every time.  See our Galleries and Reviews for inspiration.


We have a huge selection of pattern books from fabric companies such as Morris & Co. Romo, Linwood and Sanderson which you can come and view or if you can give us an idea of what you are looking for, we can bring a selection to your home.


All of our cushions are made-to-order with zips and optional piping.

We have a huge range of fabrics, any of which can be made into cushions of any shape or size. 

Common cushion sizes are 30cm x 30cm (12inch x 12inch), 40cm x 40cm (16inch x 16inch), 45cm x 45cm (18inch x 18inch) and 60cm x 60cm (24inch x 24inch).

We can also make bolster or tubular cushions for chaise longues and window seats, for example in 15cm x 45cm (6inch x 18inch) and larger.

Quallofil is a brand name associated with polyester fibers used in the manufacturing of pillows and bedding products. It's a type of filling material designed to provide comfort and support in pillows, cushions, and other similar items. The Quallofil brand is often associated with high-quality synthetic fibers that are hypoallergenic and resistant to clumping, ensuring that the filling remains evenly distributed.


We strongly advise you to consider the upholstery at the planning stage of the carpentry.  We are more than happy to consult with your carpenter/fitter/project manager on design and measurements.

All too often we get customers coming to us for upholstery as an after thought, once the seating has already been fitted and the space for the upholstery has been left too large; which means unnecessary costs or too small; which means not very comfortable.

Please note: When asking for quotations, customer's measurements will be used as a rough guide only and final quotations will be based on the upholsterers measurements.


Due to a high volume of enquiries, we try to give an initial estimate from your e-mailed photos, to help you determine if we can meet your requirements.

  If so, we are happy to arrange a pattern-book viewing,  to help you choose fabrics, and trimmings.

Once you have chosen your fabrics and trimmings, if your furniture is too large to bring to show us, we will arrange a home visit to measure up and finalise your quotation.

The quotation will be e-mailed to you and you will be asked to check it carefully and read a copy of our Ts & Cs.

We will also let you know when we expect to begin the work, and how long it will take.

If you are happy to go ahead, we then ask for a deposit to book in your work.

We are very flexible and can work around holidays/decorating etc but once the deposit has been paid, we cannot change fabrics/trimmings or collection and delivery location.
