Khaled Bruce Mr. K. Franka, who goes by “Franka” or “Ed” because of the business name, took ownership of the long established Ed Smith Upholstery store in Brick, NJ in 1984. Franka has always loved the challenge and artistic nature of his work with the goal of providing unique work on each project. He honed his creative skills since a young boy working in upholstery with his brother and other family members.

Franka’s passion is evident when he talks about the individuality and beauty of each and every project that he undertakes. He tirelessly works with several interior designers and individuals to execute on plans, visions and goals for both residential and commercial clients.

Call Franka direct at 732-477-1313 or stop in his shop in Brick, New Jersey. If you stop in the shop you will see Franka always hard at work with Bruce Springsteen playing in the background. Beside being a big fan of Bruce, having gone to seven shows, Franka says nearly every client has a “remember when” story to tell about a Bruce song or how they are inspired by the music. And this is one way that he connects with his long time, returning clients and new ones alike.
