Read by millions every week, and frequently on TV and Radio, home guru Alison Cork has built up a formidable reputation as a trusted homes and interiors expert, with an unfailing eye for quality and value.

With an ever growing portfolio encompassing writing and broadcasting, in 2012 Alison branched out into product design, collaborating with online furniture retailer Made.com to produce the bestselling Wolseley Collection.

In 2013, Alison launched her own interiors collection online; “Alison at Home”, featuring beautiful, stylish homeware at accessible prices. Alison’s signature style is classic design with a twist, and her work blends elegant shapes with tactile materials and subtle use of colour.

There is a hint of tradition and heritage at the heart of all Alison’s work, but her contemporary treatment allows it to sit successfully in the modern home. ‘Everyday Elegance’ is her byword.

Passionate about what Britain does best, Alison also works alongside skilled craftspeople and suppliers throughout the UK, to support British manufacturing.

Aside from product design, Alison writes weekly interiors columns for several national newspapers including The Daily Telegraph, Times and London’s Evening Standard, with a weekly readership totalling well over 12 million. Her TV presenting credits include Cowboy Builders (CH 5),

Secret Removers (C4), Home In The Country (ITV), Don’t Move Improve (ITV) and Get The Look For Less (ITV).

In 2014, Alison launched her hugely successful homeware brand on QVC, where it continues to bring stylish and affordable furniture and accessories to the viewing public.

Her group of companies operate out of offices near her home in central London. With her ever expanding empire, she has been called The Oprah Winfrey of Home Interiors, but at the heart of everything she does is the simple and strongly held belief – “Everyone deserves a beautiful home”.
