Jonathan Dempsey – CEO The Dempsey Group Pty Ltd
DESIGN. INNOVATE. CREATE. DECORATE.
In 1960, John Dempsey founded The Dempsey Group; an organisation that would expand to encompass the Bed Bath N’ Table brand and the Domestic Textile Corporation. After returning home from his time in WWII, John worked for many hard years as a sewing machine technician. Acquiring a passion for textiles, he soon recognised a strong desire in a very early market for locally designed bed linen that truly encapsulated the Australian way of life. An intuitive entrepreneur, John formed a bed linen manufacturing and design business from a small factory in Brunswick, Victoria. From six sewing machines, business quickly began to grow. Carding, quilting and the manufacture of pillows, quilts and bed covers became the specialty of the company. A fact that still rings true for the business today.
After supplying bed linen to some of Australia’s biggest department stores for many years, John realised a place was needed where the designs could be properly showcased in a specialty store dedicated to providing unique product and quality service. A place where beautiful homewares could become achievable to everyone, every day. This is how our very first Bed Bath N’ Table store was born.
In 1975, Bed Bath N’ Table opened its doors in Dandenong, Victoria. The Bed Bath N’ Table name has since become forefront within Australian households for bed linen and homewares. Today, Bed Bath N’ Table remains a proudly Australian and privately owned family business with second and third generations of John working together to continue his vision.
With over 160 stores in every state and territory of Australia as well as key location stores throughout New Zealand and Singapore, we have continually grown to become a full home lifestyle destination for our customers.
There is no place more important than home and today we are still guided by John Dempsey’s belief that ‘a happy home inspires great memories’.
At Bed Bath N’ Table, we are dedicated to the creation of quality products that bring pattern, colour and enjoyment into everyday living. We strive to help our customers enhance their homes with beautiful product and decorating ideas that make home living fun, easy and creative! Everything we Design, Innovate, Create or use to Decorate reflects this.
The goal we have set for all of our store locations and website is to offer our customers a complete home lifestyle destination, where customers can find an inspirational environment and receive expert advice to easily visualise how our products will work within their home.
We are passionate about making Bed Bath N’ Table a place where everyone can find what they’re looking for to create the home of their dreams.
