A little history...

Geoffrey Benson & Son was founded on Petergate, York in 1933 by Geoffrey Merryweather Benson and became known for its high standards of quality furniture, attention to detail and personal service.

Geoffrey’s son Martin Benson joined the company as a school boy and helped the company move to its current landmark home, the former Hammerton Hotel in Green Hammerton, in 1991.

In 2014, the company had a £250,000 refurbishment and stock overhaul to bring in a fantastic new selection of classic hand-crafted interior products.


Meet the Team

Martin Benson
Owner and Managing Director

Furniture-making is in Martin’s blood; he was born above Geoffrey Benson & Son’s former store in Petergate, York and “grew up on the upholsterers bench”. Martin is a self-proclaimed ‘general dogsbody' - one minute he is co-ordinating the delivery of furniture to customers, the next he is making cups of tea or cleaning the windows.

Donna Cavill
Interior Designer

Donna is our go-to girl for advice on fabrics, upholstery accessories and advice on all aspects of your upholstery order. She will prepare your quotation and guide the order through the process to completion. An initial visit to the showroom followed by a more in-depth appointment in our fabric studio is a great way to start to consider the wide range of choices possible for your new upholstery.

Helen Wilson
Interior Designer

Helen has worked alongside Geoffrey Benson & Son for many years and takes great pride in making sure customers get the personal service and attention to detail they deserve. With great patience and a good head for problem solving, Helen goes that extra mile to ensure the look and fabrics are perfect for every project, whether it’s a large country home or a child’s small bedroom. She specialises in curtains and soft furnishings.

David Watkins
General Manager

David looks after our advertising, sales and marketing and joined the company in 2014. He’s also skilled in the design of occasional furniture.
