MEET THE TEAM
We are Skipton’s House of Design, owned and run by Janet and Antony Booth. We have a passion for design, materials and business, and have combined them into a beautiful range of luxury cushions, only available from ourselves online. Our designs are exclusive to us and we use them to create wonderful products that our customers tell us they simply love.
What’s important to us is to bring joy and a unique sense of style to your home. We are primarily using our lead designer, Dee Gardner’s stunning designs with the desire to expand our range and potential designers as our business grows. When we are not working on our business we just love the outdoor life, walking our dog and spending time with friends and family.
We struggled for years to find decent cushions that really added colour and joy to our home. When the opportunity came up for us to take on this business it felt like a dream come true for all of us. We love colour and our lead designer is Dee Gardner, whose extensive colourful portfolio is admired and respected around the world. Her influence is drawn from a passion for vibrant colours, bold design and her undying love for mother nature. She says ‘Let’s face it, you can never have enough cushions, my husband may disagree, but all my girlfriends adore their cushions. I think I probably love cushions as much as (if not more than) my shoes !’
Working with local suppliers here in the UK, all our products are handmade and offer the best in quality, exclusivity and gorgeousness - our philosophy is to be the best in all that we do so you, our customers, are happy, our ‘best in the business’ suppliers are happy and ultimately we are happy - win win win !
Both of us come from having our own businesses and experience in multiple sectors, however this is the first time we have had an online business. Which brings us to where we are now being so excited to show you our cushions, the launch of our new Linen range and what we would love is for you to come on our journey with us.
