Violet & George was born in 2009 out of a passion for exquisite textiles and meaningful, elegant design. Since then, we have become synonymous with luxurious interiors created to reflect and magnify our clients’ individual tastes. We’re ‘new fashioned’, skilled in the traditional crafts of interior decoration and fastidious about attention to detail, but at the same time aware of contemporary trends, taste and technology.

The attention we pay to what matters most in the lives of our clients sets us apart. Our design and decoration consultancy flexes to work whichever way suits them best. It includes made-to-measure tailoring and upholstery, paint and fabric advice, intelligent lighting solutions and unique decorative flourishes.

From our West London studio and workshop in Middlesex our designers and craftsmen collaborate with a trusted network of specialists to ensure exceptional levels of fit and finish. And high levels of customer delight too. No request is too exotic (or mundane); no imagination too wild; no expectation left unfulfilled.

With an extensive and varied career in soft furnishings, Phil manages our workshop and oversees all our installations. A traditionally trained upholsterer, he is a stickler for detail and a true craftsman, which is why all his work is executed with precision and care.

Stefan
Stefan

Upholsterer and fitter

Stefan has been apprenticed to our Workshop Manager, Phil, since leaving school. Passing on the upholstery skills and insight needed to achieve our uncompromising quality standards wasn’t a short-term strategy for either of them. But with Stefan’s appetite for learning served by Phil’s delight in sharing his craftsman’s knowledge, we are reaping rich rewards from the investment. Stefan now oversees many of our bespoke projects from design to completion.
