We are two farming sisters drawn together by a love for interiors and creating exciting pieces.
It all started as youngsters spending time with our grandparents; Nornie and Gandie.
Nornie passing on her love of fabrics, buying us our first sewing machine whilst at junior school. We would spend hours playing around with textiles and designing and making our own outfits. Gandie built our adoration for woodwork spending many weekends creating ‘masterpieces’ in his garage.
We followed our creative flare studying the Arts and Design Technology through to A’levels and carried on to Art College at Kent Institute of Art and Design.
Training with the Association of Master Upholders (AMUSF) and have professional skills and experience with both modern and traditional upholstery, which means we are able to give your pieces the love they deserve.
We now spend our time between teaching the AMUSF dipolma course in London’s renouned ‘Shoreditch Design Rooms’, holding leisure courses in our Kent classroom, as well as working on commerical and domestic commissions in our workshop.
Jade has entered the industry recognised Heico design competition two years running enabling her to show case her imaginative and technical abilities. Her skills were acknowledged by the industry judges being awarded runner up two years running, with both chairs being displayed at the NEC Birmingham in association with the British Furniture Manufacturers. Our dream is to be the ‘go to’ company for having eye-catching, functional pieces, designed and built for people to treasure and so Wells and White Bespoke Upholstery was born
