Design Service

Furniture 1A Full Design Ser­vice

The first step is an on-site meet­ing to dis­cuss the client’s exact require­ments, after which a meet­ing will take place in my Show­room to browse through a wide range of fab­ric and wall­pa­per books, paints, car­pets or fur­niture.  I will then provide detailed estim­ates and samples.

On a lar­ger pro­ject, I can also provide sample boards and detailed draw­ings and spe­cific­a­tions.  Once the estim­ates have been accep­ted, I will order the fab­rics, liaise with my work rooms and ensure the smooth run­ning of the pro­ject until install­a­tion.

After com­ple­tion, I can assist the cli­ent with any extra work which may be required, togeth­er with the pur­chase of any final accessor­ies and fin­ish­ing touches.

A Shop­ping Ser­vice at Chelsea Har­bour
Some cli­ents really struggle to find their per­fect fab­ric giv­en the huge choice avail­able.  Some cli­ents like to go to the hub of interi­or design, Chelsea Har­bour Design Centre , in Lon­don.  Here you will find a vast range of show­rooms with all the latest fab­rics, fur­nish­ings and accessories.I can also offer a day at Chelsea Har­bour, which has been a very pop­u­lar ser­vice.   I will guide you through the vast array of fab­ric houses and help you choose your per­fect fab­ric or access­ory. This will cost £150.00 and cov­ers a full day’s advis­ory ser­vice — a great fun and pro­duct­ive day.
After com­ple­tion, I can assist the cli­ent with any extra work which may be required, togeth­er with the pur­chase of any final accessor­ies and fin­ish­ing touches.
Sitting Room 15How I Charge

Due to the sharp increase in the cost of fab­rics and wall­pa­pers, I am now offer­ing a fee based struc­ture so that I can give my cus­tom­ers the best pos­sible prices on fab­rics and wall­pa­pers.  I have trade accounts with all the lead­ing sup­pli­ers:  Cole­fax & Fowl­er, Jane Churchill, Kate Forman, Osborne & Little, Romo, Har­le­quin, Peony & Sage, Ian Mankin, Ian Sander­son, Tri­mont, Susie Wat­son, to name but a few.  If you are purely wish­ing to order fab­rics or wall­pa­pers, please email me your require­ments so that I can give you a quo­ta­tion.

For  interi­or design or soft fur­nish­ings pro­jects, I offer a one hour first site vis­it free of charge, with­in a 20 mile radi­us of my Show­room.  Fol­low­ing this, I offer a full design ser­vice for an hourly rate of £45.00 (VAT is not chargeable).

For cli­ents liv­ing fur­ther than a 20 mile radi­us, an hourly rate of £45.00 is charged which is refund­able against a client’s first order.  The rate starts on arrival on-site.

The Smal­ler Pro­ject
I am very happy to help cli­ents who may just want to improve one room in their house or who would simply like a new pair of cur­tains or a sofa re-covered.
Some­times fresh eyes can make all the dif­fer­ence.  I can also help to improve the look of a room, for example re-arrange some fur­niture, give advice on improve­ments or provide fresh ideas.  The same fee struc­ture applies as above.
Mak­ing Up Cur­tains etc in Cli­ents’ Own Fab­ric
I nor­mally like to sup­ply fab­rics because I then know they have been bought from reput­able sup­pli­ers.  There have been prob­lems in the past where cli­ents have provided their own fab­rics and it has become appar­ent these fab­rics are “seconds” and have been faulty.  I apo­lo­gise I am not able to work with any fab­rics pur­chased from dis­count houses or ebay.  How­ever, I will make up customer’s own fab­rics if they have been bought from reput­able sup­pli­ers. In this instance, I charge stand­ard mak­ing up charges (which can be giv­en by quo­ta­tion) plus an hourly rate of £45.00 design fee to cov­er travel & super­vi­sion time, includ­ing all paper­work.  This same fee struc­ture applies to alter­a­tions.
