As part of a complete refurbishment, the client wanted to use a palette of natural materials for this particular re-fit: The walls were clad in stone, the stair treads in mid-stain oak and a complementing brown leather for the handrails to run from the basement up to the second floor.
The marketing suite for St George’s new ‘Fulham Reach’ development needed to reflect the standard of finish in each of its new properties. An impressive glass and marble reception area on the ground level with a continuous handrail finished in leather leading up 2 further floors to the show-apartments above.
An exquisitely refurbished property in the heart of London with contemporary fittings throughout. The fabulous staircase design was finished with a flattened-oval style handrail covered in a light shade of grey leather curving gently to the first floor level.

The handrail in the newly fitted-out dining space spiralled up to the first floor with both inner and outer handrails fitted on wall-mounts. The tan leather finish complementing the industrial style of the staircase shell.
With over 25 years’ experience in the upholstery and custom-made furniture business, we are well placed to tackle any project, large or small, producing an exceptional finish every time.
Working specifically with leather at Hide and Stitch has given us the edge in understanding how well it performs in certain applications. This knowledge allows us to apply leather to the most complicated of handrail designs – from a continuous straight length with multiple elbows and corners, to complex elliptical shapes.
Depending upon the nature of the project and the stage of completion, we can work both on and off-site. Where handrails can be removed, we work on these in our workshop and return and fit on on-site when required. Alternatively, and as is often the case, we are on-site at the end of a project where completion times are critical.
Where rails are already in-situ and cannot be removed, our team will set up a workshop, templating, cutting, sewing and applying leather on-site to complete the work. We welcome visitors to our fully equipped workshop near Newmarket where you can see examples of our work, view leather and material samples and further discuss your project requirements.
