At Abbey Upholstery and French Polishing, we’re passionate about the quality of our work, and will always take the time to understand our clients’ needs and visions before starting a project. Our number one priority is that our customers leave 100% happy, and with furniture that feels as good as new. Established over 40 years ago, we pride ourselves on our family values and the superiority of our work. Tom started the business 40 years ago after his apprenticeship and has built up a reputation for honest advice and excellent quality. His father Jonny joined the business when he retired from the building trade, he had magic hands and could work with any material, other than glass, he was never allowed to touch anything with glass in it! Paul, Toms son, has always been involved from his late teens onwards, he thought it would be a good idea to sign write one of Dad’s vans, his summer job that year was to hand cut the vinyl and mount it on the van. The current van design is based on Paul’s design. Karen, Tom’s daughter joined the business in 2012 after a furniture design degree and working in furniture retailers such as Heals in Manchester and New Heights at Redbrick Mill. She brought a fresh outlook to the business and more bold choice in fabrics! We are also extremely proud to be members of The Association of Master Upholsters Federation and are trained up to and beyond Parker Knoll standards.
