Tricia Blowman

Tricia Blowman launched Upholstery Designs with husband Tony 40 years ago and has always ensured the business side runs smoothly and efficiently. Tricia takes care of the financial and administrative matters that underpin the company – but you’ll also find her on the shop floor from time to time, where her many years of product and sales knowledge are an asset to the store.

“We’re known as a family business, and although we’re expanding our store and our product range our priority is always to provide the same personal service and traditional good quality that has built our reputation,” says Tricia.

“When customers visit Upholstery Designs, they don’t come for cut-price deals or fast-talking sales pitches. They’re meeting furniture craftsmen who can design, build and finish a suite to a high quality. That’s why furniture from other manufacturers has to meet some very exacting standards before it can reach our shop floor.”
