Well, we can offer you a full interior design service if you want it – but you don’t have to have it. Many of our private clients are discerning customers when it comes to style and interiors and they come with a pretty good idea of what they want. 

We can offer you a specifying service if you want it – however some people like to shop around for the different components of their furnishing ideas.

So what you get with Clark & English is our experience and professionalism in creating your design ideas. Because we are, first and foremost, in the business of professional make-up for professional designers, we are used to working with other people’s ideas and, where appropriate, enhancing those ideas. 

That means we do not tell you what you must have but we will advise if, for example, textile choices are inappropriate for the particular window dressing you have in mind. That means we do not tell you what you cannot do but we will advise if, say, colour or texture schemes could be improved. 

That means we will not apply pressure sales of unnecessary additional products but we will suggest complementary fringes, tracks and linings etc, but only if these would enhance your design ideas. 

In fact, our purpose is simply to help you realise your design ideas, not to indulge ours. So if that’s in tune with your feelings about what a soft furnishing company should be like, where better to go than where the professional designers go. Come to us, at Clark & English and we will do all we can to help you realise your own creative ideas.

Fabric Houses
We are now first choice for many leading fabric houses. Our client list includes Jewel, Romo, Harlequin, Robert & Anne Swaffer, Harris and Sanderson. Invariably, when a new fabric range is released the room sets you see in the interior design magazines and the marketing publications were made up by Clark & English. The combination of quality and value for money is what brings many of the leading commercial fabric houses to use us.

Heritage Projects
If you are responsible for the restoration or conservation of an historic or listed building, you will appreciate how the authenticity of the craftsmanship can be just as important as the look of the finished scheme. Our staff are experts in needle craft and our make up methods have been developed over centuries. Working either to detailed design specifications or with just a broad design brief, Clark & English can be a partner to your design success.

Interior Designers
As a professional interior designer, delivering the finished product is the pressure point of the commission. Having an equally professional support team is often critical to the designer’s success and reputation. For many years, Sarah has been producing work designed by professional designers from across the country on projects ranging from Middle Eastern palaces and English country housesto small city flats and pied-a-terre
