Originally a pine and country antiques shop, owned since the mid 1970's by Richard's parents, it wasn't until they retired in 2003 that the shop began life as it is now. The business was brought into the 21st century by Richard, and, his wife Louise who stripped back and re-styled the shop, whilst continuing with the customer focused values of a family run business. The rest, they say, is history. 10 years later the new home furniture and exquisite accessory store is growing every day.
Richard & Louise use 'The Richard Harvey Collection' to illustrate their love of fusion between traditional and contemporary design classics and their showrooms illustrate how the furniture and accessories can be combined together to create the most stylish home.
From solid fruitwood cabinetry, individual Chinese furniture, British manufactured sofas and occasional chairs, to exquisite ornamental mirrors, hand-picked Himalayan pot lamps, and, statement home sculptures. Their stunning showrooms extend in to a 19th Century former Baptist Chapel where they have displayed furniture to emulate the home environment. Their personal customer service provides a wonderful experience for the design conscious home shopper.
The showrooms boast a beautiful range of Knole sofas and classic occasional chairs, upholstered in superior fabrics and leather. Their carefully selected collection of occasional furniture includes coffee tables, TV units, console tables and sideboards.
Richard & Louise pride themselves on offering the unique and the essential, and hold a stock of designer led accessories ranging from beautiful mirrors and lamps to unusual wall art and gifts for him, her, and the home. The range of home accessories is so diverse, unique and ever changing that a gift can always be found for the most hard to buy. And a smart gift wrapping service is always offered free of charge whether in store, or, on-line. *Exclusions apply to larger items of household accessories and furniture.
For their local customers Richard & Louise offer a 'try in situ' service where you can 'try out' a piece to make sure it is just perfect before you buy. Richard says, "It is a pleasure to work closely with our customers and if requested we can come to your house where we use our creative know how to transform a room."
