Gascoigne Designs is a family owned business that has been making high quality and stylish upholstered furniture since 1989. Founder and Managing Director David Gascoigne is himself a third generation upholsterer, having served his apprenticeship in and around Long Eaton, the acknowledged home of quality British-made upholstery.
From small beginnings the business has grown steadily to the point of now being recognised as one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of top class luxury upholstery.
By drawing on the combined skills of its long-serving work force the business offers an unrivalled level of craftsmanship and, as well as an established collection of proven designs, can create unique bespoke articles of furniture to a customer’s exact specification.
Each item is bench made by an individual craftsman from start to finish, and then signed by him. Only proven manufacturing techniques and the very best materials are used in the construction processes, with meticulous attention being paid to every detail.
Gascoigne Designs offers several hundred fabric options from a collection that includes some of the most sumptuous materials in the world. Whether a stock fabric or customer’s own material (COM), the company prides itself on paying scrupulous attention to pattern matching and trimming, resulting in beautifully formed items of furniture that are also supremely comfortable and built to last for a generation.
Also falling under the Gascoigne Designs umbrella since 2013 is heritage upholstery brand Art Forma. Art Forma started making quality upholstery in 1937 and the two businesses share a design and quality ethos whilst offering quite different but complementary product ranges.
