St James’s Interiors has fine-tuned its handcrafted bespoke joinery business as it has grown over the last two years. ‘For us, it is all about providing the interior designers, architects and private clients with the seamless high quality service that everyone is looking for,’ says company founder Pritesh Lad.
At the heart of St James Interiors is a team of highly skilled craftsmen, designers and project managers, who are passionate about delivering bespoke projects and pieces to the highest standard. The team takes pride in ensuring each client experiences a seamless journey from the start of the design process to the finish of the handcrafted piece.
The brand has already seen a big shift towards supporting local crafts people and business. ‘There has definitely been a change in the way people consciously look to see where things are made and how they are produced,’ says Pritesh. ‘Understanding what you are getting and where its coming from adds to the story of a client’s journey. We are super proud to be a British company and our clients love the fact that they can come visit our workshop and see first-hand how their work is being crafted.’
Last year had its challenges, but St James’s Interiors managed to overcome these by embracing the community of design and professionals within the industry, forging great new lasting relationships. It was also fortunate enough to be recognised by its industry: its Vithal Jesse desk won an award at the International Yacht & Aviation awards, which has helped the brand to reach a new clientele.
New for 2021 is the brand’s first collection of furniture, with a further two planned for later in the year. St James’s Interiors will be working with new materials, reflecting the worldwide shift to more sustainable products, and also with new technologies used in joinery detailing. In line with these changes, there will be a new website in early 2021 to coincide with the launch of the furniture collection.
‘New collaborations include teaming up with Dara Huang and her new furniture range, with Noor Charchafaci at Celine Interior design, and with Emma Robinson of Oh I Love That, working on a young couple’s home and documenting the whole journey,’ says Pritesh. ‘All three are very different collaborations and each is exciting in its own way. We are also working with lots of other new designers and clients – what we love is how they all have their own individual styles and how we can work with them to deliver exactly what they are looking to create.
‘We are really excited about this year and what the future holds for the interiors industry.’
