My professional objective had always been to establish my career back home in Northern Ireland. After graduating from Nottingham Trent University with an honours degree in Textile Design / Interiors, I continued my design development in New York and London working with a series of inspirational designers including Valentino, Bill Blass, Oscar de la Renta and Bruce Oldfield. They gave me my first insight into the commercial world of design and sparked my passion to have my own business. I understood the principles of design but knew that the next journey of my professional training was to begin to understand how a business operated, and more importantly, how to communicate with a client.
I worked for 7 very rewarding years in Fultons Fine Furnishings in Belfast, and gained a strong grounding in all area of retail, managing a team of 10 in the design department. In 2000, I joined Beaufort Interiors as manager of the design team and 2 years later was appointed Design Director of Beaufort¹s newly opened Lisburn Road showroom.
In February 2005, I launched Adrian Interior Furnishings and achieved my goal of running my own business, bringing my personal vision of design to the marketplace. Peter McCaughey joined my design team in July 2006 with a further 10 years expertise in interior styling, specialising in lighting design and space planning. At Adrian Interior Furnishings we have developed a set of principles and guidelines for dealing with what might otherwise seem a huge and daunting task. Whether you are refreshing an existing room or starting on a new build, we believe it is vital to remember that it is your personality that brings a room alive.
