The Story Behind the Name

Eleanor Rigby Home is a family-owned upholstery company and fine furniture manufacturer based in San Diego with more than 35 years of experience in the home furnishings industry.

Our enduring designs are distinguished by hand-applied finishes, hand-stitched detailing and extremely comfortable upholstered seating. Operating in an exclusive manufacturing facility, we foster a working environment that invites creativity, collaboration and inspires excellence.

Peter Robinson and Christopher Thorpe launched Eleanor Rigby Leather in 2011 with a nod to their English heritage (and Christopher’s mother namesake, Eleanor).

Their anything-is-possible attitude for custom projects quickly made the company a valued designer’s resource and trusted partner. In 2018, they relaunched as Eleanor Rigby Home to reflect their growing offerings and categories, including power motion and case goods.

We are committed to time-honored methods and exacting care in creating products that will last for generations to come.
