About James Backhouse Upholstery
James Backhouse has been working as an upholsterer for 36 years.
For 11 years James had his own business in London, where most of his very discerning clients were located in the West End and City. James also completed many upholstery commissions for English Country Houses, Mansions and Manors.
Working on antiques and heirlooms is James' speciality, as he is skilled in traditional upholstery techniques that few other upholsterers in Auckland are able to offer. James has become well known for his work in New Zealand, and is the go-to upholsterer for private clients and interior designers.
James’ attention to detail, pride in his work and perfectionism means that your cherished pieces will look better than new.
JBU also works with other craftsmen on your furniture restoration. Most often this will be Mark at Earthwood who takes care of the wood restoration on your piece. Mark has 40 years’ experience in the business and his work is first-class.
James Backhouse Upholstery specialists are based in Whangaparaoa, New Zealand, and the upholstery services are available throughout Auckland and beyond.
