There’s a reason why we need your dining table furniture order in by September

With our furniture being bespoke and handmade, the creating process takes slightly longer than if you buy from the high street.   There are many processes which our tables go through before being delivered to your door, and we want to make sure you avoid any disappointment and have your dining table with you by the festive period.  Christmas is only around the corner so why not get in touch and make sure you have the perfect family dining table to celebrate around after a not so normal Christmas last year! 

Do you always run out of seats at Christmas?

Do you always run out of seating at Christmas? Is there always someone sitting on a patio chair or an odd stool?   Christmas is one of the busiest times of year for the majority of us and entertaining can get hectic in the dining room. Trying to find matching chairs to existing dining sets you have can be very difficult, but at Semper Hopkins Upholstery and Interiors, we are here to solve your dining chair worries.
