Me and 'Binky', whose restoration reignited my creativity and helped me get back to what I really love doing!
Welcome to David Powell Upholstery. I have been keen on making things since my school days and attended the London College of Furniture when I first left school. However, my life took me in a different direction. But I always dreamed of restoring a Classic VW Camper Van and 5 years ago I was finally able to this! During the restoration I met Leigh Hicks of Combe Valley Campers and started doing the upholstery on his camper vans. This very quickly turned into regular work and I realised I wanted to make upholstery my full time job! To keep a variety of work coming through the workshop I also take on home upholstery and build bespoke items of furniture. I am passionate about my work, bringing creativity, precision and a great deal of care to every job.
Norman from Just Jones Interiors asked me to make some seat cushions and scatter cushions for a pair of steamer chairs he was looking to restore for the BBC show, 'Money for Nothing'. I was only too happy to oblige and was delighted when Sarah Moore was able to sell the finished chairs for a small profit!
