A time-served upholsterer by trade, Tony Blowman established Upholstery Designs in 1977 together with wife Tricia. Tony initially reupholstered and refurbished furniture in a workshop in Hedon Road, while Tricia was the face of the business. Having quickly built a reputation for quality and service, the couple moved to their first shop where demand for Tony’s new, hand-made suites rapidly grew.
Forty years on, Tony and Tricia remain at the helm of Upholstery Designs, where they lead a team who share their values and commitment to quality and service.
“For more than three decades we’ve gradually built our business on personal recommendation and repeat custom,” says Tony. “Our customers’ satisfaction is at the heart of everything we do – it’s a sound business principle that has seen us through an ever-changing economic climate. There’s nothing we love more than seeing someone truly delighted by something they’ve bought from us!”
