Coach House Interiors are seamstresses, upholsterers, fitters and interior designers.
We are also three generations who can combine together and with you to create any soft furnishing project you have in mind.
We are a family run business founded by Allen James, his wife Daphne, their daughter Tina, her husband Nigel and their daughter Kerry, their combined experience in the soft furnishing trade spans over 160 years.
Before them, Daphne’s mother was a carpet seamstress for Cavendish House, Cheltenham – training in London during the 1930’s. During the 1960’s, and after both completing a five year apprenticeship at Cavendish House – Allen qualifying as a soft furnishing fitter and Daphne as a seamstress/upholsteress – they founded their family business.
Their daughter Tina, who is also a trained seamstress, joined them in 1982, her husband Nigel, a qualified City and Guilds Carpenter, joined them in 1985 and their elder daughter Kerry, who trained in textiles, joined the family business in 2007.
Alex is our lead upholster, he initially worked alongside Allen when he joined the team in 2009. He also carries out the measuring and fitting service we offer, alongside Nigel.
Nicky is our most recent Team Member, joining us in 2019. She is our ‘right hand lady’ carrying out our many admin jobs, initially meeting our showroom visitors and generally looking after us all!
We've provided a family run service for over fifty years, offering advice, measuring and fitting to customers in the Three Counties, South Wales, The Cotswolds, The Home Counties, London and the rest of the UK.
Our skills have also been required on major projects across Europe and The Middle East.
