Bespoke Taylor Howes designs
Founded in 1993, Taylor Howes is a London-based interior design practice that works internationally creating bespoke interiors of distinction which also function brilliantly on a day-to-day basis.
Karen Howes, Founder and Chief Executive is at the helm of this incredibly successful working studio, which has continued to expand and cement its reputation as one of the world's leading interior design practices.
Taylor Howes have worked on many exciting high-end residential projects such as a 83,000sqft house in Highgate (London’s biggest private house) and a wide variety of international projects, from family houses in Connecticut to villas in Dubai. Taylor Howes are also involved in the majority of London’s leading developments, including The Phillimores, The Knightsbridge, Lancelot Place and more recently One Kensington Gardens. In addition, the team have designed a swathe of penthouses up and down the Thames.
Taylor Howes’ rich portfolio also includes multiple projects across the globe for private clients, luxury hotels and restaurants, as well as aspirational show homes in high-end commercial developments. Each project designed by Taylor Howes is embedded with the core values of this practice: passion, honesty and kindness. Indeed, this studio concentrates on giving their clients a home that is truly personal to them and their family whilst also bearing in mind the timeless elegance that defines them. These phenomenally tailored interiors are comfortable, functional and boast show-stopping style, bursts of color and eye-catching artwork, which never cease to astound the ever-returning Taylor Howes client.
Karen Howes says of her practice, “the atmosphere we create is relaxed and welcoming, but we understand to the letter that our clients are often opinion-formers who are big on taste but short of time. We aim to give them a home that is personal to them and perfect for their needs, but with the minimum of fuss. That is why they return to us with such flattering regularity”.
Taylor Howes favors the use of bespoke pieces in all of its interiors, designed in close collaboration with artisans and craftspeople and made from materials of the highest quality. The vast range of bespoke furniture that they have created over the years has led to the creation of a stunning collection, to be launched later this year. In addition to the many exciting collaborations and interior projects in the pipeline this year, Taylor Howes will also be publishing an exquisite coffee table book documenting their design process. The ongoing expansion of this tightknit team has also led to the relocation of their studio into a new, entirely refurbished 5,000sqft space in London’s Knightsbridge.
