I'd love to help you to create a space that works in harmony for you and your family.
First up, allow me to introduce myself. I’m Vicki, the face and passion behind Grandad’s Shed Furniture and Design. Together with my husband, Tony, we’ve been looking after your beautiful homes for over 23 incredible years.
In response to COVID-19, Grandad's Shed and Vicki Kress Interiors have relocated into a bespoke home studio, transforming the business to offer a unique online experience and custom home visits for our range of interior services.
Call us anytime if you require any further information on any of our services or products here on our website.
The name Grandad’s Shed is inspired by the times that Tony spent making things in his grandfather’s shed as a child. Since that first item they crafted in the workshop at the bottom of the garden, the same love and attention to detail has been put into every piece our dedicated team of craftsmen produce.
It’s this personal touch that we bring to the company that has made it successful and admired by our customers for over two decades.
Our website features a curated mix of gorgeous products which have been the most popular over all these years. I’ve hand selected a lovely mix of high quality furnishings and accessories that you would be proud to have in your home - all in one boutique website.
I know that nipping for a browse around the shops is a luxury these days and in these strange times I wanted to give you the opportunity to sit in the comfort of your own home and choose beautiful home decor accessories that really do make your house a home.
Being online, our customers can't physically see or touch the product first, so it's imperative that I do that. I know when I've ordered items, I want to be excited about their arrival and then delighted when they're delivered, so the quality is an important part of ensuring we meet that goal. It's so satisfying when you're asked 'Oh I love that, where did you get it from?'
My design inspiration is rooted in the countryside as I love earthy colours and like to make a place feel homely and comfortable, while still being stylish and practical.
I also ask myself 'Would I be happy with this in my home?' If it's not a yes, then I'm afraid it doesn't make the grade. Handpicked and cherished... and it’s as simple as that.
If your home is crying out for some more fundamental updates, we have a range of bespoke services to suit nearly every project.
We employ the services of a full-time curtain and blind maker, three time-serviced upholsterers, five cabinet makers, one French polisher plus my husband Tony who restores antique pieces. In addition, two paint sprayers specialise in transforming kitchens and painting furniture in purpose built spray booths.
We are excited to have the opportunity to visit people’s homes and see first hand what will work within their existing home decor.
Most people think that the advice of a professional interior designer is a luxury that they can't afford, but it's a service just like any other. More often than not, people just need a bit of guidance and a sense of direction to help them achieve the home of their dreams.
I believe individual consultations in client homes are invaluable for inspiring fabrics, furniture design and paint colour choices, giving window treatment advice, deciding how best to use a space, addressing lighting challenges and discussing room décor.
The retail market is continually evolving and we may expand at a slower pace than some of the bigger players, but so long as we do that without compromising our products and continuing to deliver excellent customer service, then the experience of buying from a smaller family business is often rewarding.
As always, we're here to support your interior dreams. For bespoke projects, simply contact Vicki or one of the team on 01759 306777 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org or shop our curated collection of homewares here.
