Always inspiring

A great design service, born of 35 years of experience

We’ve been working with the Design Community in the UK and across the world for over 35 years. During that time we have worked with designers and architects on projects ranging from contemporary city apartments and period town houses to country cottages and stately homes.


Be Inspired


Bringing your vision to life.

With experience based on such a wide ranging portfolio of work, our team has the level of technical and product knowledge to ensure that we can always fulfil a designer’s vision and meet a client’s budget.

We can also be relied on to find practical solutions to the most challenging installation situations, making best use of the available space and adding value to the lifestyle of the client.



Designers are welcome at any of our London showrooms to meet the team face to face, but we also understand that virtual meetings have become increasingly popular.

With this in mind, we have developed a unique ‘Video Design’ platform that provides a comprehensive insight into our range of products.

This new, high-resolution platform enables you to scroll through our products and select and view images, drawings and videos of our most popular pieces, while discussing them with the team. It is also possible to use this tool to consult remotely with your own clients.

Video consultations with us, are always hosted by one of our senior sales consultants and can be briefed in advance to ensure you get to see and discuss exactly what you want.
