Straight out of University my first job was at Liberty, Regent Street, where John Lewis of Hungerford had a mini showroom on the lower ground floor. I remember the kitchens being the perfect fit for the location, being both beautifully designed and well-made. Fast forward ten or so years having travelled extensively whilst working for the world's leading airline, I took a career change and joined John Lewis of Hungerford as a designer and manager at the Muswell Hill showroom. My dad is an architect and would often take me to work with him in the school holidays, where I’d see design planning meetings and visit sites he was working on, invaluable experience for when I first started at the company.
Over the years here I have worked with a huge range of different people, homeowners, property developers, interior designers, architects, all with the same goal in mind - to achieve the perfect kitchen design for them. I work with a beautiful product which has evolved over the years to embrace new innovations, whilst retaining its strong design ethos.
Outside of the showroom I head for a local pottery studio where I've been creating hand-built and thrown pieces for the past five years. I work with a fantastic group of creative people, both in the day job, and in the studio, and this inspires me to keep designing and making. Any left-over spare time is taken up by a bit of extreme knitting, scouring vintage and antique fairs for restoration projects and continuing the labour of love that is the renovation of my home.
I’m the second designer in our North London showroom in Muswell Hill. This job was my first in the kitchen industry, and coming up to be four years later I’m glad to say that I am still enjoying it. Before this I completed a degree in Architectural Studies at Nottingham University which has given me a good background in design, and for seeing a project through to completion. I am currently enjoying designing more contemporary kitchens as our product range grows to introduce the Pure handleless range last year. It has been an exciting time for us design-wise as we see through the trends for dark cabinetry, metallic materials, and natural veined work surfaces.
Outside of work I like to visit art galleries, and am trying to make good use of my Tate membership this year. Like most I enjoy eating out, and spending time with family and friends. I also decided that it would be a good time to start getting into running and am trying to complete a 5k run for the first time (I wouldn’t bet money on it myself).
