We'd love to share our passion and expertise for planning, designing and managing the change in your kitchen. Drop in to have a chat.
At University I studied Fine Art Printmaking. I loved learning about the huge array of printmaking processes, experimenting with different materials, size, & colours to produce a finished piece. From this course, I learned that there was a lot of background work that led to a final piece. It was this iterative process – taking a step back and two forwards as well as resourceful thinking to find a solution, that encouraged me to take up a career in design.
I started at John Lewis of Hungerford as Admin, answering the phones and taking care of the Fulham showroom. This taught me a lot more about process and diligence! I was keen to get into design, so started with fitted bedrooms. I loved doing these (and still do). As my confidence has grown, I am now designing kitchens – as a fully-fledged designer. I really enjoy the project management aspects of this job. From welcoming the client for the first time in the store, to refining the design until it is perfect and then seeing the finished product and a very happy client at the end!
In my free time, you’ll find me taking an early morning cycle around London with my sketchbook, wondering around an exhibition — anything from printmaking to the design museum, or making the most of a London event. Most recently I’ve been to see Lumiere London — the capital’s largest-ever light festival, where thirty installations transformed the capital.
I studied print design for interiors and fashion at Manchester School of Art. University enabled me to explore printed textile design and encouraged my creativity. I have always been practical as well as creative, post university I was keen to utilise these skills.
Since I started at John Lewis of Hungerford I have been enjoying every second! From initial design consultations to seeing our projects through to completion is overwhelmingly rewarding. Prior to starting at John Lewis of Hungerford I worked for a kitchen design company for a year. I am designing bedrooms as well as kitchens, I have a keen eye for style, colour and layout. I like to think I am relatively on trend with current interior movements! However it’s really important to retain a sense of yourself within every design we create, in order for it to be perfectly tailored to your needs.
One of my favourite places in the world is Borough market, its atmosphere is enigmatic and the food is to die for! On my days off I try to gallery hop, I am currently really looking forward to Cornelia Parkers exhibition ‘Found’ at Somerset house this summer.
Studying and graduating with a BA Honours Degree in Product & Furniture design, I have always had a huge interest and love for design in and around the home and have always been able to engage with a design which has a highly attractive aesthetic, whilst still giving the user its full functionality, and ease-of-use.
Throughout my years of study, I learnt a vast amount in regards to materials and their properties, designing for manufacture, and have explored various different CAD software platforms, which has enabled me to take a very technical approach to all tasks which I undergo, and have a larger understanding of how to ensure that an initial concept/design can be transformed into reality.
Working in a number of luxury retail environments, I know what it means to give someone the level of service they deserve, and how to always cater to a person’s individual needs. This background urged me to find myself within John Lewis of Hungerford. Starting within the company as a Support role, I have since developed and honed my skills, and progressed to becoming a Designer.
Designing Kitchens both that are practical as well as attractive, backed up with the fantastic quality that we offer, gives me a great sense of achievement, when seeing a project through from the initial concept development stages right through to the end result.
Outside of the showroom I have a keen enthusiasm for Horology, and understanding all aspects of watch design, as I am fascinated by the complexity of its workings, and how such attention and dedication can produce such a beautiful outcome!
We are the original flagship store, showing all ranges with a great bedroom section.
Wandworth Bridge Road is a very accessible short hop from the Kings Road and the interior mecca that is the Design Centre Chelsea Harbour.
We have a couple of great interior-based companies close by, including lighting, flooring and tiles, and a bathroom supplier so there are plenty of interesting interiors shops that are home related. And did we mention the delightful French patisserie next door alongside a variety of good restaurants. The parking isn’t too bad either…
We look forward to welcoming you to our showroom.
