Lebus Upholstery is renowned in the industry for its quality of workmanship and design. Through the 1950s and 1960s, Lebus became one of the most famous names in furniture in the UK, and was reputed to be the biggest operation in Europe.

The company was part of the biggest upholstery manufacturing company in the industry at that time - the Christie-Tyler Group.
