River Cottage Upholstery

Stitching is in my genes  

My Story &  My Life 

River Cottage Upholstery is owned and run by Amanda Jane Luddington, her career started in 1979 as a draughts-woman working for Rolls Royce. Returning to study at Bournemouth Arts Institute and gaining HNC & HND in Fine Art.

Continuing her love for form and colour, she then went on to train as a Traditional Upholsterer studying at the  Private Estate of Kingston Lacy in Dorset.

Now running a well established upholstery business in a small thatched cottage hamlet, close to the sea in Dorset is a dream come true.

The business has grown from strength to strength, working for clients both local and abroad: 


Interior designers

Private  estates 

Furniture  designers 

Textiles designers


Courtrooms and historical buildings.



Private clients

Shepherd hut interiors

From one off family treasures to complete manor houses.

Please get in contact if you would like to discuss any projects you have in mind and I’ll do my best to help you.
