Burnand & Simpson Upholstery offer a tailored service to each client. Whether an old piece of furniture just needs a fresh new fabric, a full renovation or a project requires starting from scratch Burnand & Simpson can help.


Amy Burnand runs Burnand & Simpson Upholstery, sometimes collaborating with her husband Michael Simpson, a bespoke Cabinet Maker, hence the name. They share a workshop in a Longbarn on Farleys Farm, home to Anthony Penrose, son of Surrealist Roland Penrose and Photographer Lee Miller.

Amy trained in Upholstery with the Association of Master Upholsterers and Soft Furnishers, gaining a Pass with Merit in her Stage 2 and Pass with Distinction in Stage 3 in 2015. For many years, before training as an Upholsterer, Amy worked as a prop and puppet maker for film and TV. She believes this experience has led to her high quality finishing, attention to detail, her ability to problem solve and to work to deadlines.

Amy lives in Brighton and works in the picturesque Muddles Green and is happy to offer her services in both areas and beyond.
