What do you love most about Hampstead?
What makes it different to other areas of London?
The energy… it’s infectious. The fresh air, parks and open spaces really help with that too. It has many historic, architectural places which add interest and character.
What were your motivations for starting the business?
What are your biggest challenges as an independent?
Juggling my time between: Creative, admin, accounts, social media, marketting, branding, trade-shows, supplier relationships. All very important! I try and outsource as much as possible. All I really want to do is play with finishes and textures, drawings and images all day! But my client’s wouldn’t have their furniture on time!
