Where it all started
A brief timeline of our timeless craftsmanship
Peter’s interest in upholstery started at a very young age when he became friends with an old upholsterer in Scarborough who he used to visit at every opportunity, listening to a lifetime of stories and tips on tackling every eventuality. Eager to put his new learned skills into practice, Peter moved to Helmsley, at the age of 21 hoping he could make a living in such a beautiful town. Having pestered the very patient local estate manager for a workshop he eventually agreed to lease him an old stable in Bridge Street, Helmsley which at the time required extensive renovation. The Estate set the rent at …£ 28.00 per week ! The company eventually stayed there over 20 years.
