Traditional upholsterers & bespoke furniture makers

About Us


Founded by Gary Phipps in 1987, Danbury Upholsterers are a close team with wide experience in both contemporary and traditional upholstery methods.

After 30 years working with our own clients and businesses within the antique and decorating world, on some truly unique pieces of furniture, we are proud to have joined BAFRA (The British Antique Furniture Restoration Association) as a specialist member. 

Within this framework, it is important to us that interested young people have an opportunity to learn this traditional craft, and we have been successful in training our own apprentices to our mutual benefit.

Over the years we have found ourselves drawn to particular styles of furniture and in 1998 decided to launch our brand "Harvey Brown". Taking our inspiration from some of our favourite restoration projects, we make every piece of furniture with the same attention to detail.

We regularly produce bespoke furniture to our clients own design and specifications
