The Kingcome Design Team

Kingcome’s Design Director is Frank Phipps.

Brian and Lesley Kingcome asked Frank to join the company in 1971, appreciating that Franks background in wooden yacht building perfectly complemented the construction of made to measure furniture frames.

Frank’s unparalleled knowledge and experience in furniture design and craftsmanship have enabled him to develop the standard range of Kingcome Sofas’ timeless designs, as well as bespoke pieces for locations as diverse as super yachts and palaces.  

Continuing to develop and evolve the craftsmanship and skills base of the company, Ben Bolwell joined the Kingcome team in 2017 following his Product Design degree. Frank, and Ben working under Frank’s direction, work closely with clients to develop designs using CAD and hand drawings, sampling and prototyping, while ensuring all aspects of a bespoke piece are to the clients exact specifications.

Together, Kingcome’s design team enable the creation of one-off designs, bespoke furniture and made to measure variations on the ‘standard’ range.
