My name is Wayne Lal-Singh, I am the owner operator of Arcadian Upholstery. I have been an Upholsterer for more than 32 years and in that time I have worked on a wide range of furniture.


Arcadian Upholstery was formed in 1989. I started in Christchurch in 1988, and then my wife Leona and I decided that a change of lifestyle is what we were looking for. So we looked for and found a wonderful property in Scargill, North Canterbury the following year. I have now been working from Scargill for 28 years and have very much enjoyed living in a country environment. We named Arcadian Upholstery after the Greek ‘Arcadia’ which means: ‘a country paradise’. Its not heaven, but we think you can see it from here 😉
