SOFT FURNISHINGS AND INTERIORS

Based on the borders of Suffolk, Essex and Cambridgeshire and with over twenty years' experience making a wide range of interior furnishings, I bring a wealth of knowledge, practicality and a keen eye for detail to every project. Working in collaboration with my clients, I create beautiful, bespoke, hand-made furnishings, providing a complete, professional service from measuring, fabric choices, colours and design advice to finished look and installation.

CLIENTS

 

"Lucy’s bespoke covers for the armchairs in the Kettle’s Yard House - which are such an important part of this historic building and collection and are used by tens of thousands of visitors each year - were made and finished to the very highest standard. Lucy worked with us over a long period to source fabrics that suited our precise requirements. Her care, skill and attention to detail shows in what she produces. We were delighted to be able to work with such a talented craftsperson working within the East of England."

                                                                                                                           Kettle’s Yard, University of Cambridge

"Lucy is professional, honest and talented and we have been fortunate enough that Lucy has now made several sets of curtains and blinds and a more complex half tester for a bedroom.  From giving the best advice (steering us from poor choices with great tact!) setting realistic timescales and delivering with finesse we are very happy with everything that she has done and cannot recommend her highly enough.”

                                                                                                                                                        Tim Hassell, London

"During 2020, Lucy made curtains and blinds for four rooms in our house. She worked with quiet efficiency, was completely professional, and produced some spectacular window dressings for us.  She also helped us source some rather unusual prints. I cannot recommend her enough. I am only sorry that we have run out of windows."

                                                                                                                                          S Erb, Saffron Walden, Essex

"Lucy made two pairs of long curtains and two roman blinds for my new house.  All were very well made and look beautiful.  Lucy provided a detailed quote and was clear about delivery times.  She came and put up curtain rails and blinds neatly and efficiently.  Service exemplary."

                                                                                                                                           K Shircliff, Framsden, Suffolk

"Lucy did an outstanding job in re-covering our sofa and armchairs. She was a great help choosing the chintz, and the new covers, complete with immaculate piping, have completely  transformed our drawing room. She was charming, efficient and punctual throughout the various fittings, and I would not hesitate in recommending her - we will certainly go back to her for other work in the future!"

                                                                                                                                            Helen Forbes-Watt, London

"Many thanks Lucy for all your very hard work in the schools over the holidays. As always your attention to detail and the quality of your workmanship is second to none."

                                                                                                          Jane Robertson, Poppins Nurseries Ltd. London

"Lucy was a god-send for us. We live in Australia and relied on her to select fabrics, make, then hang new blinds and curtains in our London flat. Our flat is transformed and we are delighted with how it looks now"                                                                                                                                                            Nina Harrison, London
