About Belle's Furniture Design
Belle's Custom Upholstery originally located in the San Francisco Bay Area was established in 1967 by third generation Master Upholsterer Julio Mangome. Julio named his new business 'Belle's' after his wife, which was appropriate as 'Belle' is French for 'Beauty'. Julio found this fitting as both Belle and his craftsmanship were fine examples of beauty, style and elegance.
With the primary focus being residential, Julio found interest with the commercial and hospitality industries. In 1980 Belle's quickly captured a fair share of this market which included the San Francisco Hilton, Maxwell Plums Restaurant, The Fisherman Restaurant, Commercial Office Space, and Churches of Various Faiths just to name a few.
Now in its fourth generation, Julio's son Mark Mangome is now President of Belle's Custom Upholstery. In 1994 Mark saw opportunity in the strong economic Mountain States and expanded the business into Utah. Still with the same concept, Belle's has established relationships with firms such as Don Brady Design, Avatar Design Group, Jordan Valley Woman's Center, Primary Children's Hospital, and The LDS Church.
Whether traditional, transitional, or contemporary, Belle's prides themselves on having the ability to design and manufacture unique and stylish products, while providing comfort and long lasting durability.
Working on a specific job where dimensions, theme or irregular shapes are a concern? Let the design team at Belle's help. This will ensure that all critical matters are addressed so that the construction, design and comfort can be achieved.
Reupholstering? We've transitioned into a disposable society, and as a result we are forgetting the value and emotions surrounding these timeless classics. This being where we started, Belle's can rebuild these pieces using modern day techniques and technology to restore them back to life without effecting the overall aesthetics and design.
The future of Belle's is going through yet another change. the most important being the next generation stepping in. With that, Mark will be focusing on trade marking his own label to be produced by Belle's. 'Mark Anthony Fine Furnishings' will be a product line developed by Mark and his design team. These designs will marry several ingredients together, period styles, origins, and eras will be incorporated together achieving a unique look that will rise above the 'standard look' that seems to be blanketing the high end home furnishings industry. An exciting look and feel that will be embraced by all?
