Louise Bradley: Great British Brand 2023

‘One of the hardest challenges of the past year has been supply issues. Often, we call a supplier and they give us a price but two weeks later that could change. If we’re working on a project for a client, we can’t alter materials because they will have approved the scheme. Similarly, the retail price for our furniture is our retail price, and yet we can’t rely on what that item costs to produce. It’s the same situation for everybody.

‘Luckily, we have good relationships with our suppliers which helps, but it has meant a lot of communication; there was a time when you would write a purchase order and that would be it but now it’s more complicated. We’ve also set clear and honest expectations for our clients. Some things are taking longer or getting stuck in ports because of Brexit, so we’re focusing more on working with British artisans and craftspeople, which feeds into our sustainability drive. We’re looking to be much more sustainable and achieve B Corp certification. I think the waste in interiors is immense. It’s difficult  when we’re working with high-net- worth individuals who have a fixed  idea of what they’d like so we need to see how we can help them be more environmentally friendly in their choices. 

‘We’ve completed on several projects this year. One of our recent greatest achievements has been the installation of an amazing new build house in Surrey that we’ve been involved in for three years, right from the beginning. It’s elegant, with wood-panelled walls in the main rooms and a kitchen that leads onto a garden room. It’s been lovely sourcing the antiques and using lots of texture. We’ve worked with the clients before on a few projects so what’s nice is that they trust us completely.’ Louise Bradley, founder
