One to watch for 2011: Amy Jane Interiors

Hand stitched Victorian cotton lampshades

Having pursued fashion since her teens, working with English talents Bruce Oldfield and Jenny Packham at the age of just sixteen, 24 year-old Camberwell graduate Amy-Jane Adams designs furniture pieces with a distinctly sartorial edge – her textiles are rare and wonderful and bursting with texture and colour – and, refreshingly, a million miles away from high street fads and trends.

After her foray into the world of tailoring, Amy returned to the Cotswolds, where she grew up, to design and make interior accessories for antique dealer Christopher Howe and furniture maker Stephen Perkins. Cultivating an ever-growing love of upholstery and hand crafted furniture, she eventually set up shop after graduating from Camberwell, and her business has slowly but surely soared over the last twelve months. With such characterful and distinctive pieces, it’s easy to see why.

Her latest design, the Maharajah dog bed (below), is fit for a king.
