The London Curtain Girls

Based in London but offering a nationwide service, The London Curtain Girls (Laragh and Mary) make bespoke curtains and roman blinds to order. Not only do they source and design window treatment solutions to suit you, they also have a stunning selection of wood and metal poles in a range of styles, colours and price points. The pair have also appeared on SheerLuxe friend Jo Good’s radio show and were responsible for making this bed canopy.


Sophie Sews

From a childhood spent redecorating and reorganising through to gaining her design diploma, it’s fair to say textile expert Sophie has been passionate about interiors all her life. Her knowledge is second to none – whether it’s knowing which pole will fit where, the colours to use or how to put it all together. Based in Surrey, Sophie and her team work locally but will travel to visit clients.
