There’s a reason show homes look good. No-one lives in them. We bring great British design into real homes – yours. Leigh used to run a luxury furniture company and interior design practice in London, while Abi was style editor at Elle Decoration. Together, we design and make furniture that looks like it’s left the pages of an interiors magazine and that withstands the day to day, year on year. Because a Sofa is no use to anyone if it just looks pretty in a photo shoot. And a beautiful bed doesn’t do the job if its headboard wobbles as soon as you lean back.
We design and make all our furniture – so you can make it yours. Our beds can get longer to match your legs and shorter for that room the estate agent told you (optimistically) had space for a double. And as we pick the best materials from the get-go (we use solid beech not chipboard and bolts not screws) your bed and sofa will grow old gracefully.
And you won’t have to remortgage your house to own it. In 2009 we upped sticks and swapped our London showroom for a 17th century barn in Surrey. Here, the views are better and we don’t have to pay expensive rents for a Monopoly board address. So we can keep our costs – and prices – low and spend money where it matters most: on great design, the best materials and a detailed finish, to the very last stitch.
The Barn is set in an area of outstanding natural beauty in the Surrey Hills, and we’re very child and dog friendly - so make an outing of it. (If you ask us very nicely we might even lend you wellies and our terrier Maisie for a quick romp through the fields).
Oh and there are a few wonderful pubs down the road; The Cyder House Inn in Shackleford (closed Tuesdays) and The Stag on the River in Eashing which do fantastic food and a perfect pint in beautiful Surrey settings. Pre-booking advised.
