“When developing this collection, I wanted to identify with a period that was sophisticated and yet very traditional. I have always admired the Edwardian era for its refined styling and elegance following on from the elaborate Victorians – and so, I adopted this as the inspiration for the range.
As well as the truly elegant style of the Edwardians, I wanted to emulate the era’s quality of manufacture, which stemmed from two things – the industrial revolution and the expert craftsmen that the wealthy of the time could afford to commission. Quality is something I ensure with all the products I design, for both materials and finishing, coupled with excellent manufacturing it aids superior longevity. Although the collection is inspired by tradition, it is popular in interior schemes of all styles, around the world”.
