Turning vision into reality

Marketing guru Amber Nuttall Aikens and her interior designer sister Gytha Bouchon had the vision to fill a gap in the luxury furniture market. Having discovered that the best contemporary pieces were readily available, they realised that high quality furniture of classic design was for more limited in its offering. The pair set out to find designs that would fill this gap.

Having first sourced the finest pieces from English manufacturers, the sisters established Nuttall in 2010 in the former Pond Place premises of leading designer and Blakes Hotel creator Anouska Hempel.

From this showroom the sisters showcase a range that includes hand-finished, down-filled sofas, chairs, footstools and day beds. Loro Piana Interiors fabrics and accessories including cushions and throws are also on display and Nuttall Aikens comments that the aim is “to grow the collection into a complete lifestyle brand” that will include candles, paints, beds and linen.

Adds co-founder Bouchon: “Our vision for Nuttall is to produce beautifully made pieces that will, with love and care, last for generations. For this reason, each detail is meticulously thought through, using the finest raw materials and the very best craftsmanship.”

Selected as a Walpole Brand of Tomorrow 2011, Nuttall’s progress will be well worth watching.
