Having worked in the Architectural & Interior Design sector for the last 25 years as the owner of an Architectural & Interior Design Company, I identified a gap in the market where clients would no longer have to trawl retail showrooms and web sites trying to piece together coordinated interior design schemes for their homes – what if we could offer a selection of coordinated pieces that customers could simply select from one place?
Edward James Interiors was formed to provide that one-stop shopping experience for discerning clients looking for those high-quality furnishings, fixtures, and finishes, whilst at the same time, still offering an optional qualified professional interior design service to help create truly bespoke interiors.
Edward James Interiors Ltd is a wholly owned and run family business, with three generations having played an active part in its formation. My wife Jane has been a constant support of our business ventures over the years, and will be personally overseeing packaging and customer relations in our new venture.
Our trading name, Edward James, is attributed to the memory of my late father, who was our greatest supporter and provided constant encouragement in our early stages of the journey to bring Edward James Interiors to fruition. He would have been so proud to see his family working together, especially under his own name!
Edward James Interiors has been over four years in the making, from the initial gathering of research and ideas, through to the sourcing of high quality furnishings, attending trade shows, visiting showrooms, and forging relationships with our quality suppliers. We have travelled the country as a family, each offering our individual take on every item prior to it being selected. Collectively we are a tough customer to please!
Our elder daughter Amy is about to be awarded her degree in Interior Design, and is very shortly to become the second generation of our family team to hold such a degree. Amy has been working tirelessly over the past 12 months, being instrumental in bringing the Edward James Interiors web site to fruition, whilst also building our social media profile.
Our younger daughter Laura, is in her final year of a psychology degree, but when she’s home, she becomes part of our administration team, helping out with orders.
Our son, Tom, has extensive experience in commercial warehousing and logistics, and has provided valuable advice and input in organising our warehouse, and establishing our distribution processes.
Edward James Interiors is very much a family business, building a platform for the next generation.
Our beautiful granddaughter is already showing designer flair at the age of 10!
