Men and women who have served in the military deserve recognition and honor for their sacrifice and willingness to put their lives on the line for their country.
Bradgates Upholstery Service in the United Kingdom thought of a creative and unique way to honor military members and their families by allowing them to preserve their uniform in a way that can be enjoyed for years to come.
Rather than just hang it in a closet or have it lay folded on a shelf, the company came up with an unusual idea to turn the uniform into an exquisite piece of furniture.
Bradgates will take military uniforms as well as those of first responders and make them into a one-of-a-kind armchair.
When Bradgates Upholstery Service posted a notice about these amazing furniture pieces, the response was overwhelming.
“We had our dads done and gave it him remembrance weekend and he loves it! You’ve done an amazing job with that chair!” wrote one happy customer.
“WOW I’m a motor trimmer by trade I also do odd work like this and THIS makes me so proud ? fantastic work and good on you for making so many families happy I’m sure well done,” another commenter wrote.
“What a brilliant idea xxx how wonderful would it be for someone that had lost someone at war too. A chair they could curl up in and smell/ feel their loved ones,” wrote another.
Needless to say, Bradgates was thrilled with the positive response.
“JUST LIKE TO SAY WOWwww to the amount of responses on this Posting, from so many people,” read a post on the company’s Facebook.
The company assured its costumers that the chairs will stand the test of time.
“These chairs will last a life time as you know the uniforms are of such strong Robust fabric,” the company wrote.
What an incredible way to transform a service uniform into something that can be displayed for a lifetime.
Kudos to you Bradgates Upholstery Service. You outdid yourself with this unique idea that will honor servicemen and women for serving their community and country. Well done!
