About Us

The Upholsterer was created in 2009 by Milos Jandac and Laura Cornthwaite (who later became a Jandac!). Laura and Milos met when they both worked in London and realised they made a great team in life and in business so decided to go for it. Not long later and The Upholsterer was born. 

Opening in October 2009 with a new baby heading back to Laura's home roots of West Sussex, the workshop opened and still to this day we work with clients who joined us at the very start. 

Milos is an extremely talented upholsterer with over 30 years' experience, creating bespoke one off pieces alongside resorting traditional antiques. Laura is a one of a kind interiors curator, for the most specular of homes (one day we might remember to photograph them and share with you...) with a wealth of knowledge on and fabrics, colours and pattern and how to style to fit your life, Laura and Milos really are the dream team. 

Offering bespoke upholstery, curtains, blinds and furniture from our showroom and workshop in the heart of Midhurst, West Sussex, Milos and Laura have created a place where you can shop for everything in one place.

The Upholsterer is now lucky enough to have a talented small team of people working with them. In The Workshop we have Catherine and Alfie working alongside Milos, creating everything here in Midhurst. Emily works alongside Laura curating your bespoke dream space. 

We are one slightly crazy family, but that's where the best works comes from! Come chat to us and find out.
