Frequently Asked Questions

We often get asked lots of questions about our services and interior design capabilities so we have attempted to answer as many as possible below.

1. Do you make curtains yourselves?

Yes! We can help you to select curtain and lining fabric and we have a team of highly skilled seamstresses based in our workshop on White Cross in Lancaster who are experts in sewing and making up the highest quality curtains.

2. Do you make blinds too?

Yes! We make all sorts of blinds and we are exclusive stockists of Luxaflex blinds because we believe that they make the best blinds on the market. We can show you how good they are if you come to our showroom on Common Garden Street in Lancaster where we have a full range of their products. We can measure, make and fit blinds to suit your home and will come and do a home visit to ensure a perfect fit and installation.

3. Can you help me choose fabrics and paint?

Yes! We have decades of experience in Interior Design and are always happy to advise clients on what will match with what. So if you have a fabric that you love but aren’t sure which colour paint might go well with it, then speak to Andrea or Graham and we will happily advise you so that you can choose a great colour combination.

4. Do you do upholstery?

We don’t do upholstery ourselves but we sell upholstery fabric and we work with a small number of really good upholsterers to whom we can supply the right quantity and weight of fabric for your upholstery project. We can help you to choose the right fabric and manage the process for you so please do pop in and speak to us about it if you’re looking for an upholsterer.

5. Where are you based?

Our showroom is located on Common Garden Street in the heart of Lancaster. There is a car park nearby at the MarketGate shopping centre which is just a few minutes walk away. We have been operating in Lancaster since 1942 when Graham Mawson’s grandfather opened his first shop – so we have many, many years of expertise and experience and a huge range of fabrics, wallpapers, paint and other items to choose from.
