Project Showroom and our new Chedworth Armchair

Our freshly decorated showroom

One upside of the most recent lockdown is that it has given us opportunities to spring clean: clear out cupboards and attics, sort out our gardens and reorganise and redecorate our houses!

Here we have done just that. We found ourselves re-evaluating how we work, getting back to enjoying our creativity and have channelled our energy into revitalising the showroom.

In May, we celebrated the showroom’s 5th anniversary and are very happy to say that our furniture and made to measure sales have never been better.

In response, I have listened to your requests and designed a new contemporary armchair to match my Chedworth sofa and also a striking new headboard, both of which can be viewed in my showroom.

I thought I would show you our ‘new look’ showroom for a little inspiration and hopefully to entice you to visit us.

Have you visited our showroom?

My staff and I enjoy nothing more than meeting as many of you as possible in our Cirencester showroom.  Situated in the heart of this beautiful Cotswold town, the space has a lovely energy where fabrics are displayed on whole rolls, showcasing their spectrum of colours and patterns.

My furniture range is on display in beguiling room sets for you to look at and try, I like it to make it feel like home from home. The shop worktable  is constantly covered in various combinations of rolls, rugs and samples, all signs of busy client visits.

It is fantastic to be able to welcome you back. You might like to know that we have also hung some glorious new paintings by Rose Arbuthnott. She will be hanging an exhibition very soon in the showroom and The Bothy (next to my shop). I will let you know when it will be and the new works will also be available through her website.


Hay and Scree Bedroom

At the front of the showroom, our ‘bedroom’ celebrates the new Sculptured headboard. It is covered in my best selling design, Cow Parsley in the colour Dove, it creates a beautiful backdrop for all the complimentary mix and match cushions in pretty Hay and calm Scree.

Simple and striking, Espalier Stripe curtains maintain the contemporary feel of this scheme.  The light coloured linen curtains look stunning against this bold wall colour, Scree by Little Greene.



A witty Tub chair in charcoal Bird Hop provides the perfect backdrop for a pop of Hay; I do love mixing stripes with geometrics.

The gorgeous bed quilt in Paisley Ground adds a contemporary twist to the traditional eiderdowns I remember from my childhood.  With French Ticking on the reverse, you can change the look depending on how you feel. I always think our quilts are the final piece of the jigsaw when decorating a bedroom and what’s more…they can be handed down the generations.

Drawing Room – Cornflower and Terracotta

Terracotta’s warm earthy tones are so comforting; I recently redecorated my kitchen in this colour, along with Peach, Smoke and Charcoal and am so happy with it all.

For an elegant drawing room or dining area of an open plan kitchen, Gypsy Garland is my go to design.  Adding height to any space with its graceful flow, it comes in many of my most popular colours.  Here we have chosen striking Cornflower, a rich inky blue in my 100% linen.


Covered in Plain Linen, Terracotta and piped in Cornflower, my new Chedworth chair is contemporary and most importantly, very comfortable. Its low, elegantly sloped arms and neat shape mean that it doesn’t take up much room.  It could look very smart if you had two sitting side by side.

Cirencester Sofa

If you like to curl up to read or watch television, my Cirencester sofa has a very generous deep seat and high sides, so you can do just that.  It comes with button detailing in the same or a complimentary fabric and four large back cushions.

The Snug – Kale, Plum and Dusky Pink

In the showroom we have a small room tucked away at the back, the perfect place for a Snug.   A lovely contrast from the more formal drawing room, this room, filled will light, has walls painted in a beautiful light lilac tone by Little Green called Welcome.

My Traditional armchair is upholstered in Herbaceous Border; with elegant, dark turned legs working beautifully with the deep Plum and soft Dusky Pink tones.  If you have antique furniture in rich mahogany or warm oak, I would recommend these fabric colours as they sit beautifully side by side.

A simple interlined roman blind with contrasting border has been hung at the window to maximise the space. My Ashcroft footstool in Up the Garden Path in Dusky Pink, is compact enough to fit here, ideal for a tray of tea or for putting your feet up on.

Home office

Our homes have never needed to be more multi-functional. I wanted to replicate this in the showroom. The environment in which we work can have an incredible effect on our energy, creativity and focus. I have used colours which I find revitalising and hues of green are always easy on the eye, and work wonders to reduce stress levels.

In this office/sitting room, Herbaceous border curtains in front of the French doors; the design reminiscent of the florals of a bygone era.  The walls have been painted in the versatile French Grey by Little Greene which helps the room feel more informal.  Introducing a leading edge on the curtains reflects the shade of the walls and makes it more contemporary.  I have added some fun touches: Wild & Free cushions, scalloped edging on the blinds and the cheerful May Blossom shown here on the Traditional sofa.   All of the above guarantee to make you smile as you start your day of work.

Pouffes are a lovely way to include co-ordinating fabrics and are extremely useful for additional seating.  With its upright back and small footprint, our Sapperton armchair is an excellent reading chair.
