Taylor Howes is one of the UK’s foremost designs studios with 25 years heritage, leading in the world of luxury interior design.
Taylor Howes has been discreetly and determinedly designing interior projects of distinction from its Knightsbridge studio for 25 years, challenging the way we see luxury interior design and breaking with the traditional. As a practice it has worked for some of the world’s most influential, private individuals and developers, weaving amongst its project portfolio a signature Taylor Howes aesthetic, which has evolved to become unmistakable.
Founded by CEO Karen Howes from her spare room in Pimlico, Taylor Howes is one of the UK’s premier interior design brands. Furthermore, with its first collection launching in 2018, it will solidify its place amongst our craftsman. The practice is now award winning having scooped up over 10 awards in the past two decades, however, if Karen were asked to say which she is most proud of, it would probably be the group’s recent win for ‘Overall Business of the Year’ at the Business Excellence Forum Awards.
As passionate about business and the reputation of the profession as she is about interior design itself, Karen is an advocate for young interior designers knowing the business side of the industry, as well as the traditional decorating elements. In her regular lectures at design school KLC, Karen talks about what it means to be an entrepreneur and the necessity to teach finance as well as the more traditional subjects.
Inspired by this, Taylor Howes founded its industry-networking event ‘Business of Design’ in 2016 and it has developed to become one of the sectors most covetable invites to receive, with events monthly and a bi-annual larger networking evening. Through ‘Business of Design’ and the studio’s work, Taylor Howes has collaborated with some of the world’s stalwart luxury brands, such as Christie’s International, US based firm Urban Electric and luxury online lifestyle brand Superyachts.com. Taylor Howes is regarded for adding value not just aesthetically, but also fundamentally.
