Originally established by Mohammed Akbar, with the help and support of his wife Seema, MA Living is proud to still be a family-run force to be reckoned with! Today, the company is run by Mohammed's sons and daughters, and our Gomersal-based firm continues to thrive.
Arriving in the UK from Pakistan in 1975, Mohammed worked nights as a yarn-spinner in a bustling Yorkshire factory. On only a few hours' sleep, he lovingly repaired and recovered three-piece suites and bed-settees from his cellar at home.
Honing his upholstery skills over several years, he soon realised there was a gap in the market for beautifully upholstered headboards for divan bed manufacturers in Yorkshire. Before long, he'd set up a dedicated business to serve the handmade bed industry, supported by Seema. Alongside raising the couple's four children, Seema provided the care and support needed by all family members in the business.
MA Living might be located in the small, quiet West Yorkshire village of Gomersal, but step into our busting workshop and you'll find it's an absolute hive of activity. Time-served upholsterers put love, care and attention to detail into each and every stitch of your bespoke furniture, crafting bedsteads, headboards and chairs by hand to ensure your chosen piece more than meets your exacting requirements.
