Meet The Team

Philip Austin, the founder of William Austin, learnt the craft of upholstery from an early age initially through the guidance of his Grandfather who used to own the popular furniture shop Conways in Dunmow, Essex, and his mother Rosemary Austin, a skilled seamstress who makes up part of this dedicated hardworking team today.

‘Their skills and knowledge were passed down to me from a young age, seeing their passion and the beauty of recreating a stunning piece of furniture inspired me to choose upholstery as my profession’ – Philip Austin.

Philip’s wife, Becca, studied Interior Design at Writtle College and has recently completed a self build for Phil and Becca’s family home which she project managed. 

Becca can offer advice on fabric choice, curtains, soft furnishings or a complete scheme for your home.

“I am delighted with the complete transformation of my sitting room.  Becca and Phil, her upholsterer husband, carefully consulted with me at every step of the way with a variety of beautiful fabrics and good ideas.” – Jane Green
