David Ellison was born in Scotland and grew up in London, England. He was educated in an experimental free school, Summerhill, and later attended Hammersmith College, London, majoring in technical drawing and art history. He has studied and restored antique furniture from a young age and has also worked in a business capacity. Around eight years ago, he started to focus on building tables. Since then, his table making business has grown very well and he now builds traditional, contemporary and unique designed tables that ship throughout the country.
