Through the BIID (British Institute of Interior Design) website you can find a very informative info sheet on the roles of an Architect and Interior Designer, their remits and where those roles cross over. This is great if you are considering a large project and want to understand the process and who to talk to first.
However, where do you start if you only have a small refurbishment or a decoration project and need somewhere to go for advice and supply of paint, wallpaper, fabrics and curtains?
Not all Interior Designers hold fabric/wallpaper books and samples. It needs a good-sized space to accommodate this but here at Koubou Interiors, we have that facility. We stock and supply several well-known fabric and wallpaper brands but also some of the less well-known, those who do not spend huge amounts on advertising or bricks and mortar premises, therefore their price point is very competitive and you are unlikely to find these on any high street.
Many of our fabrics are suitable for outdoor use, great for revitalising tired garden furniture seating or adding a splash of colour with cushions, others are fire resistant and stain proof, ideal for those of you with pets or small children as they are scrubbable and some even antibacterial! We even have fabrics made from recycled plastic bottles, great if sustainability is important to you.
Here at Koubou Interiors, we can offer a fully integrated service – not just offering you the chance to peruse our fabric books and order your fabrics but we can also upholster your item of furniture, make curtains, window blinds and bedspreads all with advice from fully qualified Interior Designers who have a wealth of knowledge and can advise on bringing a scheme together cohesively.
Another service we provide is that we can procure furniture and accessories e.g., lamps. mirrors etc. this affords you the opportunity for more choice, the best price and minimise problems and delays.
We all know that the cost-of-living issues we are currently experiencing have put paid to some of the ambitious ideas we had of transforming our properties, but you can still make significant changes without spending a fortune.
If you are looking at refreshing your indoor or outdoor spaces, then please contact us.
