Urban Cape Interiors offers an innovative and inspirational interior and furniture design service specialising in both the residential and commercial sectors. Established in 2003 by Charlotte Candillier, the firm’s focus is on design excellence and progressive thinking. The company began by offering a unique collection of beautifully hand-crafted furniture from a retail showroom based on London’s exclusive New Kings Road. The success of the showroom led to the company’s expansion and by 2004 a full interior design and refurbishment service was offered. Urban Cape has accumulated a wealth of experience in the disciplines of Interior Architecture, Furniture Design and Project Management. C O M P A N Y H I S T O R Y

This covers the initial time spent researching options and obtaining costing for the project. We will then work to your budget and will provide you with a complete outline of expected costs. You will never pay more than retail price for furniture and accessories sourced by us and another benefit of working with Urban Cape Interiors is that we aim to pass on trade discounts wherever possible.

“ Charlotte and Sarah were great in helping me sort out my new house. The service is personalised and friendly and nothing is too much. Work was completed in a timely, affordable manner and on budget. From indoor bespoke wardrobes to new guttering they had solutions for everything. Given the discounts they receive and pass on the service probably worked out cheaper than doing it myself and obviously more time effective. I would be happy to recommend them to others and would definitely use them again”! M.Boam , Fulham "I have employed the services of Urban Cape to assist with the interior design of our master bedroom and sitting room as well as to project manage the full conversion of our kitchen. I have found their services to be excellent - they have access to high quality furniture and fabrics, great suppliers and tradesmen and take all of the difficult legwork out of both the interior design and building process. They delivered on time and to budget and were very collaborative in their approach, truly listening to what I wanted and where my budget was at, but also providing innovative and stylish ideas and solutions. The trades people they employ are knowledgeable and skillful, and I was always satisfied with the result. I would not hesitate recommending the services of Urban Cape!" G&D Finkel Fulham I got to know Charlotte and Sarah during a very busy time of my life; I was a new mum. I had various rooms that needed dressing, from a dining room to guest bedrooms, and wanted them to have a homely feel to them. With a four month old my attention was on my daughter and I did not have the time nor the inclination to do the legwork myself; this is where the girls came in. They helped me manage the budget and provided numerous options in order to get the desired look. Both were very quick and efficient at coming back to me with their ideas and moving the project forward. Friends and family always comment on the rooms when they come to stay and I am always asked 'where did you get that'! Z.Carson, Putney R E F E R E N C E S
