Polly Granville is a furniture restoration genius. She not only reupholsters old pieces of furniture to breath new life into them, she goes the distance to create one of a kind editions. For instance, she works closely with city and guilds upholsterers, specialist craftspeople and designers to add personal touches. In one case, Polly Granville had a sofa embellished with scenic cross-stitchings depicting a vibrant sunset in what could only be the Sahara. Even the buttons were creatively customized. This particular piece was dubbed the Fraser chair by Polly Granville.

Based in the United Kingdom, Polly Granville carefully chooses antique and vintage frames for personality. Setting the foundation for the work, the often unusual frames inspire the direction these skilled individuals take when working on each piece.
