Where do interior designers’ shop? An inside guide to our favourite suppliers

Have you ever wondered how interior designers find the best furniture, lighting, homewares and building materials?

It takes years of painstaking research (and a little trial and error!) to put together a list of the best craftspeople and suppliers.

Finding likeminded companies and individuals who share your passion is the secret to an interior designer’s success, and why we guard our ‘little black books’ so jealously.

But never fear, we’re here to help!

Over the last 25 years we’ve been creating bespoke luxury interiors around the world and having had so much pleasure and enjoyment from it, we’ve decided it’s time to give a little back.

We’ve decided to open up our lovingly compiled suppliers list here in the hope that it helps you on your own fabulous journey to interior perfection.

Happy hunting!
