Pengelly was born in Henley in 1967. Learning to make in his Fathers workshop, he became an award winning cabinetmaker by the age of 15, going on to study at Rycotewood college and Kingston Polytechnic, graduating in 1988.

After working in the design studios of Conran Design group, Pengelly went on to design for Habitat for three years, leaving in 1993 to establish his own studio. Continuing his acclaimed relationship with Habitat, Pengelly has designed a large amount of their best ever selling ranges, making him one of the ‘most sold’ of British designers.

Pengelly developed his own range and launched himself an as independent designer at the 1996 100% Design show in London, and since then has expanded his portfolio by successfully designing for companies who include Allermuir, Boss, Isokon plus, MHF, Gordon Russell, Martin Ryan, Hitch Mylius, Modus and Lapalma.

A pragmatic approach to problem solving and his affinity with materials and manufacturing processes, combined with a passionate desire to create production furniture with ‘soul’, has attracted briefs which have resulted in award winning furniture that contain a wonderful mix of understated design and clever engineering with a trademark timeless appeal and accessibility.

Pengelly has received several design industry awards and nominations, and for his commitment to the British furniture industry was awarded Best Contributing Designer at the 2002 100% Design show.
