 Jacobs Family 


    Our father and grandfather started Jacobs' Upholstery in 1959, building their business on Quality Work, Good Value and "Friends Telling Friends" of the work performed. We are now in our fourth generation and have expanded our services to include Automotive, Windows and Quality Outdoor Furniture. Though we have grown, we continue to provide the same craftsmanship and service that we have been for almost 6 decades.

    Meet Our Family

        Dave Jacobs

    David Jacobs is the oldest brother.  In divvying up responsibilities he got to pick first.  He is the President and CFO of the company.  He is responsible for the big picture, where we are going, and financially how are we going to get there. But a more fun part of his job is managing the Patio department.  From buying the product you see in the store and here on the web site,  to selling the furniture and accessories, Dave is involved in all aspects of this growing part of the business.

    Darby Jacobs

    General Manager

    Darby Jacobs is the next in line, in the family.  He is the General Manager of the business.  He is responsible for a lot of the day to day operations of the business.  He has been busy lately working with the City of Spokane Valley and contractors, first in building our auto upholstery building and then a new warehouse for the Patio furniture and now as we are expanding the new warehouse to hold all of the furniture reupholstery workroom.  Darby is also the manager of the Auto, Boat, RV and plane upholstery business, as well as the lead salesperson for the Commercial department.
