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 Heathcoat family in the mid 1970’s  who were renowned for manufacturing lounge furniture and re upholstery, there service was second to none!. It was here he learnt his everlasting motto’s…   “quality lasts long after price is forgotten” .. and “do it once do it well”… still rings in the ears of each employer here at Knightsbridge !!

It was at Heathcoat’s that our director Malcolm Ingles, learnt the art of handcrafting furniture.  early in his 20’s he was competent, talented and was 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, he found himself doing vintage car restoration his talent was long sort after. Malcolm could literally bring a broken few pieces of a 200 year Edwardian couch to life, all in its originality with sprung and stitched edges, French polished framework and the lot!

 

In the 90’s Knightsbridge launched its first high end custom made furniture range, using unique talents and skills.

 

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

In 2014 Knightsbridge decide to open up its talent into the commercial market, allowing for the manufacture of unique high quality upholstery and furniture to the wider market.
