‘I had always wanted to create a lifestyle. I was working as an interior designer and was utterly frustrated at the lack of exciting and interesting contemporary textiles. At the time one had to visit various different shops to furnish a home and there was nowhere that really looked at the total concept. I remember Terence Conran had just opened Habitat, which was fantastic, but I felt I had something different to say and I was young and fearless and decided to give it a try.
From those early days my initial concept has not changed – to create a way of life… a lifestyle, to be a destination where people could buy one small beautiful thing or have their whole house decorated.’ – Tricia Guild
Inspirations for collections come from a wide variety of sources such as nature and flowers, her travels, architecture, fashion and photography – to name but just a few.
The soul of the company and the place where it all began is the Homestore on the Kings Road, which was established in the early 70’s with a fabric and wallpaper showroom just next door, a further homestore opened on Marylebone road in 2010.
Everything within the Homestores is sourced by Tricia and her team, and exclusively designed items are available alongside the entire Designers Guild range. The Homestores are where the true Designers Guild philosophy can be discovered – Handmade jewellery next to the best of Italian furniture, beautiful bedlinen to vintage scarves, design classics to one off ceramics , a gorgeous bar of soap to an antique wardrobe or the perfect cappuccino to the complete redesign of your home – the store and showroom offer a personal, eclectic and contemporary way of life.
The company also sells a fabulous range of selected items online, which are all available at the click of a mouse from the comfort of your own home within the UK and the USA.
