Space started as Hanging Space in 2004. I started working there in 2006, and liked it so much I bought it in 2008. Since then, the company has evolved from being a specialist wardrobe company to specialising in one off furniture for all rooms in the home. It is my belief that storage is important. To have something made to measure just for you, to suit your exact requirement, makes good sense if you are intending to stay in your home for any length of time.
I trained and worked in commercial and couture fashion before moving into interiors. Initially, I worked with fabrics and colour, predominantly designing and running a soft furnishings and upholstery business. I took a break to work and train with a leading surrey interior design company, designing and sourcing luxury products. I then chose a different direction to train in kitchen design before working for Hanging Space.
Over the last twelve years we have worked for clients from all walks of life, including celebrities and CEO’s. We enjoy a following from existing clients and client referrals so we do minimal advertising, mainly to inform clients of our latest work.
We are a family business. Alex trained and worked in fashion before joining Hanging Space, and now sees his own clients. Oscar has an upholstery background and now works on CAD designs and IT. Finally my partner Trevor, with his engineering background, works on the technical side on the exacting level of manufacture and finish our clients have come to expect and enjoy, along with our talented carpenters Paul and Craig, who now help run the projects from sign off to completion. We are an established and close knit team.
