  • A bit of history

    Mark and David founded Westcote Design in 1991 and have over 85 years of experience between them. Both of them have worked in both small local businesses and the larger national sector over that time, so have a real breadth of experience as well as depth.

    Originally based in Milton-under-Wychwood, Oxfordshire, we later moved to the outskirts of Kingham to grow the business. Since then, we’ve moved again to the centre of the village so we could open up a showroom to exhibit our wares.

    We’re local through and through and proud of it, but we also serve a wider area of the country including a large area of London, and regular deliveries to Taunton and Cornwall. We have customers in Oxfordshire and Cheltenham, and our client base mainly consists of contract furnishers, architects, and interior and product designers. That said, we’re also happy to hear from private clients who wish to either come and choose a new piece of furniture or have their existing furniture re-upholstered.

    Why choose Westcote Design?

    So, why choose Westcote Design? Well, we hope that our experience speaks for us. We’ve been around for more than 25 years, serving customers in Oxfordshire and beyond. So you can be sure you’re going to get a product you’re happy with.

    We use only the highest quality materials too, so you can rest assured that your furniture is going to last long into the future, no matter how often it’s used.

    Our expertise isn’t just in manufacturing furniture, but also in design. We can give you advice and guidance on furniture design, so you can pick the best sofa, armchair, or chairs to suit your home. Or, if you can’t find anything that quite suits your needs in our catalogue, we’re happy to discuss creating a bespoke piece for you.

    Finally, we do nationwide delivery, so no matter where you are, we can get your new furniture to you quickly and safely. We deliver all day from Monday to Saturday too, so you can pick a time that’s convenient for you.

  • Our re-upholstery service

    You might not be in the market for a new piece or suite of furniture. You might instead want to breathe new life into something you already own. We offer an expert re-upholstery service to reinvent your old furniture. We can re-upholster both pieces of furniture we’ve previously sold and older pieces as well.

    If you have any inquiries about our re-upholstery service, please do get in touch!
