Now in its 25th year, Neptune started out around the same kitchen table that still stands in John and Emma Sims-Hilditch’s family home in Wiltshire. Today, Neptune designs pieces for every room of the home, from kitchens and solid timber furniture to lighting, fabrics and paint. John and co-founder Giles Redman’s unwavering belief in the power of good design still stands as it has from day one – and that doesn’t just concern aesthetics either. It extends to using the highest calibre materials, taking into account how well something is made and, perhaps most importantly, how thoughtfully every piece is designed.
A lot of thought goes into making sure each design feels distinct and different from the next, but also that they all work wonderfully together no matter what combination of products are arranged in a room. The idea is that it all looks – and feels – effortless. The Neptune stores are a huge part of this vision too; each designed so that from the moment you step through the door it’s as if you’ve arrived in someone’s home.
Now more than ever before our homes are the most important place and at the heart of everything we do
Now, more than ever before, our homes are the most important place and at the heart of everything we do. Neptune is on hand to help customers with every step of the design journey, from choosing paint colours through to redesigning a whole home. In store designers are able to work with you to reimagine or design any space from scratch – including kitchens – much like an interior design service but with the flexibility to collaborate on as few or as many rooms as needed. A visit into any one of Neptune’s stores across the country also means that you can benefit from the advice of knowledgeable home specialists in choosing furniture, along with a host of smaller services such as made-to-measure window treatments and fitted furniture design.
The possibilities of virtual consultations and video calls make sure that those not within striking distance are cared for too. A family business much loved for country and town homes alike, Neptune is one British brand which just keeps getting better.
