Our Story

Our 40-year-old roots lie in the history of passion, talent and experience … Malcolm, an energetic and passionate young man found himself employed by the well-to-do Heathcote family in the mid 1970’s. They were renowned for manufacturing lounge furniture and re-upholstery, and their service was second to none! Here he learnt his everlasting motto’s … “Quality lasts long after price is forgotten” and “Do it once, do it well”… which still rings in the ears of each employee here at Knightsbridge!

1980-1990

It was at Heathcote’s that our director, Malcolm Ingles, learnt the art of handcrafting furniture.  Early in his 20’s he was competent, talented and able to form new and unique furniture pieces from just a rough sketch!

Malcolm soon formed his own business and became renowned for his talent in antique furniture restoration and vintage car restoration – his talent was long sort after. Malcolm could literally bring a broken few pieces of a 200-year-old Edwardian couch to life, all in its originality with sprung and stitched edges, French polished framework and the lot! In the 1990’s, Knightsbridge launched its first high-end, custom-made furniture range, using unique talents and skills.

In the year 2000, Knightsbridge launched another new line of manufacturing – miniature dolls and children’s couches which were sold to retail shops. These were uniquely designed to look like the old Edwardian style couch.

 

Knightsbridge decided to open up its talent into the commercial market in 2014, allowing for the manufacture of unique high quality upholstery and furniture to the wider market. With its roots steeped and talented in the tradition of “quality first,” we now manufacture a range of UNIQUE, CUSTOM, FUNCTIONAL and CREATIVE products that  give our customers the competitive edge in what ever business they are in. We manufacture a range of high quality and creative healthcare furniture, upholstered lounges and dining furniture and a range of beautiful Australian Timbers, and are constantly bringing new  beautiful and functional designs to the market in this sector. We also provide a highly reliable commercial upholstery service to Joiners manufacturing upholstery for high end projects – no job or technique too hard for us to tackle! Malcolm’s background and knowledge also lends to the development of a unique range of mental health furniture, complete with all the specifications in wear and durability.

Knightsbridge continues to develop unique and custom products for the architectural markets, all bearing the same theme, uniqueness, functional creative and quality!
