My Story

My passion for upholstery came when our family moved house in London in 2007.  I had two small children and I wanted to decorate their bedrooms to make them a place of calm but yet inviting. I couldn't find what I wanted on the high street so I decided to create my own headboards in beautfiul fabrics to complement their blinds and newly painted walls. That was the start. 

A few years ago I decided I would like to be professionally trained in upholstery. I signed up for the AMUSF diploma (Association of Master Upholsters and Soft Furnishers) at the British School of Upholstery in Nettlebed, Henley on Thames. Since finishing that I have done intensive courses at the school concentrating specifically on headboards and footstools.   

I have degree in Fine Art and spent my early career working for Christie's Auctioneers and then for De Beers, the highly creative diamond industry. I have always been passionate about colour and fabric and especially transforming a piece of fabric into a piece of furniture which can instantly change a room, becoming its centrepiece and bringing new life to it. 

What I Do

I make bespoke headboards and footstools as well as reupholstering old favourites to bring them back to life.

 

I believe in sustainability and the transformation of tired classics.

 

All pieces comply with the latest fire regulations.

 

I can guide with design ideas, colours and fabrics. 

 

See my latest Instagram for the most recent pieces I have created.

 

Most of all I ensure you get a forever piece of furniture that brings beauty and depth to your home.
