About our Livery

The Upholders are one of the ancient Livery Companies of the City of London. 

The term “Upholder” is an archaic word for “upholsterer”.  In past times Upholders carried out not just the manufacture and sale of upholstered goods but were cabinet makers, undertakers, soft furnishers, auctioneers and valuers.
