About me

David Petherbridge

Born in Walthamstow, London. I have over 30 years experience as an upholsterer.  I started my career with a full upholstery apprenticeship in London, for a company called HK furniture, who were known as 'The Rolls Royce of the Furniture Industry'.  HK made sofas and chairs for Harrods, Sheikhs, Film stars, Pop Stars, Actors/Actresses and Footballers.  I worked my way through the company from an apprentice up to design prototype development manager.  My last project with HK furniture was making the seating for Portcullis House (opposite the houses of parliament) for the MP's in their new offices at that time.  Unfortunately, now, like a lot of old companies, they have ceased trading.
I now work for myself from my shop in Leigh On Sea and offer the same excellent quality of work for your individual needs and requirements, with great attention to detail.  Whether you are interested in a full re-cover of your old suite, having bespoke furniture made, sofas and chairs in miniature for your children, or luxury upholstery for your campervan or yacht, I will produce the work to the high standard you should expect.  I undertake contract work for various establishments, such as bars, nightclubs, diners, gyms, health centres, churches and more!
I cover many areas, just give me a call, or drop me an email for a free quotation or pop into the shop to discuss in person, whilst being able to view the many choices of fabrics that I have to offer.
