Textiles and furnishings play an important role in all of my interior design projects. New ideas and interpretations, where we can challenge and simplify for the current mood, are at the opposite end of the scale, yet entirely complementary, to full restoration – where we carefully retain the inherent spirit and elegance as we re-make and replace the decades-old, worn, furnishings of settled country houses, as if nothing had changed.
True materials and traditional craftsmanship, integrity, grounds our work; skills from the worlds of couture, tailoring, pattern cutting, millinery, art, embroidery, weaving, knitting, fine needlework, applied finishes, gilding, upholstery, art, antique textile, joinery and furniture restoration are applied to each project.
Win very project we use ancient textiles and newly commissioned works.The unsurpassable depth of age – the hand woven, hand dyed soft, nuanced colours that show the hand of the craftsperson and hint at stories from another time, another world, lies side by side with vitality – the raw, new energy inherent in contemporary pieces – speaking directly to the future of potential and of possibility.
