We worked with Nigel Stock from Kerrison-Stock Architects to create our new shop. We have worked with Nigel on other projects, and were delighted by our collaboration on the new building. 

We wanted to make the building both functional and stylish while retaining some of the best features of our previous showroom, such as the double-height space and the abundant natural light. We are delighted with our practical and elegant new surroundings.

We create storyboards with our clients, showing selected fabrics, carpets, lighting and furniture and paint. Our ‘shop the look’ service has been particularly popular, as it allows the client to rapidly find a look and price that suits them. 

Our lovely team all enjoy sourcing fabrics, creating schemes, working to our clients briefs, aided by the stunning building and inspiring space.  We hope you’ll pop in for a coffee and take time to browse the various collections and get inspired!
