The company is headed and owned by siblings Tricia Guild Founder and Creative Director and Simon Jeffreys who is the Group Chief Executive.
The Designers Guild business philosophy is to combine creativity and innovation with the highest levels of quality.
Artistry, creativity and innovation are at the core of the creative process at Designers Guild. Each design starts its life with a root of an idea or point of inspiration and often cultivated by Guild herself and always with an artist’s brush or pencil. Derived from such diverse sources as Eastern decorative art, Italian architecture, flowers and nature to classical documents.
The designers collate concepts and paint and sketch, experiment and trial, working through ideas and themes to create a body of work that Guild steers, guides and ultimately edits into a collection.
The Designers Guild range currently has nearly 9,000 fabrics and 2,000 wallpapers including printed floral and geometric fabrics; plains, checks and stripes, jacquards, tapestries, silks, velvets, trimmin. The highest qualities of cloth are sourced; from combed Egyptian cotton and Scottish linen unions to Swiss woven damasks. Printers and engravers use state of the art technology and strict quality control systems are applied both in-house and at their suppliers.
