Curtain and soft furnishings services
Bespoke hand made window treatments
Most of our customers choose to take advantage of Act One Interiors' free local home consultation service. We will listen to your requirements and offer ideas and advice, and we will measure up and provide a quotation for the work required. A good selection of pattern books is available to help you choose your fabrics, and to help you make your final decision, we can bring samples to your home, or will order your own cuttings as appropriate, to ensure they are exactly right for you. (For new clients further afield, a small call out fee may be agreed, which will be fully refunded against your order.)
Once your curtains and soft furnishings are ready, they will be delivered to you (free of charge) and fitted appropriately. We think this is the best way to ensure that you are completely happy with the finished result. There is usually an additional charge for fitting tracks and poles, but the hanging and dressing of your curtains is all included as part of the service for all customers within a reasonable distance. If you wish to fit your own tracks we will be happy to work with you and provide advice if necessary.
We can usually supply everything you need including tracks and poles, fabrics, wallpapers, paint, various types of blinds, shutters, flooring, furniture and accessories to complete your project. Subject to our workload we are also usually happy to make up material you have purchased previously.
It is of the greatest importance to us that customers are delighted with their choice, and we are regularly recommended by people we have worked for.
We have accounts with most major suppliers and a respectable collection of all the best designer fabric samples. We are happy to supply these fabrics separately from our curtain and upholstery service, and offer you help and advice in your choice as well as a free cuttings service. Please make an appointment to discuss your requirements.
Bespoke hand crafted furniture
One of our favourites, Zoffany furniture is hand crafted using seasonal hardwoods and all joints are dowelled, glued and screwed. Internal bracing is added to each corner for further strength and stability. Coil springs are used for the seat base for maximum comfort. In addition, some models incorporate coil sprung arms, enhancing the quality and feel of the piece as well as its look. All covering fabrics are individually hand cut and pattern matched or paired, then sewn and carefully upholstered. Each stage is carried out by expert craftspeople with an uncompromising attitude to quality. Please call us for a brochure or more information.
Act One has partnerships with a number of other excellent furniture makers and joiners and can help with most requirements.
Poles and accessories
See our decorative poles page for some of the great range of curtain poles and accessories we can supply. These are of course available to customers for whom we are making curtains, or those who simply wish to buy the fittings from us.
Carpets and Flooring
We can help with all types of flooring including carpets, wood and laminate flooring, vinyl, ceramic tiles, stone, rubber, safety flooring and wood finishing.
Commissioned works of art
We have worked with local artist Sarah Pye, who has created some wonderful paintings to complement our clients' interior schemes. Sarah's artwork starts at surprisingly affordable rates, and her range of subjects is impressive. Our favourites are her stunning abstract floral images. See www.sarahsart.co.uk.
