As interior designers based in the Cotswolds, we’re blessed with a wonderful choice of suppliers for our furnishings and home accessories. From local craftsmen to contemporary designers to curators of fabulous vintage items, here are ten of our favourites.

01

FABRICS AND WALLPAPER

Rapture & Wright

Rapture & Wright offer great contemporary fabrics and wallpaper screens, printed to order from an old cow shed in Gloucestershire. The colours are absolutely perfect for Cotswold homes.

FABRICS AND WALLPAPER

Lewis & Wood

Based in an old mill in Stroud valley, we love the contemporary twist on classic, Oriental and African designs that Lewis & Wood give to fabrics and wallpapers. They also offer unique wide width wallpapers with huge prints, which still look good in cottages. The linen quality is superb.

FABRICS AND WALLPAPER

Vanessa Arbuthnott

Offering a very wide collection of fabrics, wallpapers and furniture, we often use them as a trade supplier for our projects.  The colours tend to be soft and the styles have country or midcentury flavours. They have a recently-opened shop in Cirencester.

FURNITURE

Tamarisk Designs

Tamarisk Designs are a trade-only supplier so we will often take our clients along to their local showroom to try their furniture for size. We frequently use their chairs, sofas and corner groups – classic yet very comfy!

FURNITURE

Tom Faulkner

They have a showroom in London but a factory in Swindon, so they count as local! Very elegant handmade furniture in steel, bronze, stone, wood and glass: great statement pieces.

FURNITURE

Scumble Goosie

A quite unique supplier in Stroud valley, Scumble Goosie offer bespoke and ready-to-paint furniture and accessories, mostly based on 18th Century Gustavian & French designs with slight Shaker twists. We find them great for useful, inexpensive things like radiator covers and bedside tables.

FURNITURE

Uptec

We love this small, family run business near Winchcombe. As an upholsterer, sofa and chair manufacturer they are very accommodating for one-off pieces (like the one above) and always a pleasure to work with.

Walcot House – Designer Curtain Poles

Walcot House offer beautifully-engineered designer curtain poles in very sleek, contemporary finishes. We love their unique finials – just the kind of detail that really lifts an interior scheme.

We love Sarah’s hand-thrown porcelain tableware: really pretty colours and shapes. Her studio is near Cirencester and is highly recommended.
