For as long as I can remember, I have been inspired by what I see. My great uncle and grandmother were painters, and my uncle a goldsmith, so my early life was full of beautiful visual images, which have stayed with me and formed my appreciation of the world around me.
I hugely enjoy looking at architecture and interiors, and have always had a very clear idea of what I think makes good design. So when I was originally asked by the good folks at MADE.com to design a sofa range for them, it felt right to do so, and a successful and enduring collaboration was born.
From those beginnings in 2012 I went on to design my own range of furniture and accessories, and most recently, have launched an interiors range exclusively for shopping channel QVC.
Throughout my ranges, the DNA of my design ethos holds true – I believe that is is possible to design elegant, well made furniture and accessories at accessible prices. Easier said than done I might add, but it is possible, and I’d like to think we are walking the talk.
I really hope you enjoy the pieces we feature on Alison at Home. They are for you.
