Our Founder and Principal Designer, Dee (Gardner) having been a mother to six beautiful children (seven if you include devoted husband Keith) and two playful, golden Labradors (Sky & Willow) now dedicates the majority of her time to creating new works of art and unique designs.

You will see from her extensive portfolio, that is admired and respected around the globe, that much of her influence is drawn from her passion for vibrant colours, and her undying love of Mother Nature. No surprise, therefore, to discover that many of her finest creations and inspirations are borne from her time spent either at the family home in the Cotswolds or her second home in the Dordogne. This, coupled with the brilliance and creativity from the hand-picked team of individuals, formed by Dee, is how we are able to bring you our stunning collections.

 Dee's background is varied, from career as a Professional Behaviorist & Psychotherapist, then to create a company who ethos was to encourage people to be comfortable just being who they are, inspiring them to fulfill their potential.

After a near death experience in 2002, Dee has never looked backed, vowing to get the most out of life, enjoy her family, and never take love for granted. She has a romantic side to her personality which you will see shows through her expressionistic design flare.
“You can never have enough cushions”

‘Let’s face it’ Dee says ‘You can never have enough cushions, my husband may disagree, but all my girlfriends, adore their cushions.' 

'Why? It is very simple. Even on a tight budget, you can revamp your home using soft furnishings, adding colour and ambiance to even the coldest room in the house. I think I probably love cushions as much as,(if not more than) shoes.'

'You can even turn your cushion over to reveal a different look, they are so versatile, adding splashes of colour and character and I love them.’


Our Design team create wonderful Chairs for anyone wanting a ‘talking point’ in their home, Office, Hotel, Restaurant or Salon. Dee has created most of the Designs herself, however, for something a little more extravagant and for the extroverts among us, we also have ‘The Reed Collection’ that forms part of our Design House. Sometimes themed, always original, they can be playful and fun. Showing off the talents of our ‘in house’ upholsterer. Look at the range of chairs we offer, most having cushions to complement.
