Our mission is to reduce the carbon emissions and cost of office furniture. We do this by remanufacturing high quality furniture to as-new condition and creating furniture ranges from waste materials. Furniture is the biggest source of carbon emissions in a commercial building – we reduce this by 80% while saving money for clients and creating jobs for local long-term unemployed with disabilities. Our 300+ projects prove that every office can be beautiful, sustainable and cost less.
Your principal duties will be reupholstering high-quality used modern office furniture and upholstering soft furniture designed by Rype Office.

- Reupholstering: cutting, sewing, and fitting & refoaming
- Maintaining the overall cleanliness and tidiness of the upholstery studio
- Keeping the fabric inventory up to date
