I’m Sophie Harris, founder of Harris & Rose Interiors. My solo venture began back in 2013 after I completed an accredited course with Victoria Hammond in Hertfordshire. Here I learnt to make a variety of soft furnishings using hand-sewn methods which I am still passionate about today. It is so satisfying to receive a roll of fabric, cut it all up and stitch it back together again in the form of curtains, blinds and cushions to totally transform a room.
The main workshop is located in a stable conversion on my parents arable farm just 7 miles from Cirencester, Gloucestershire. In 2019 I expanded my business as I made the move to London to be with my partner and embrace a new life together in the capital. From our home I have a small workroom where I make all the roman blinds and any smaller jobs as well as keep on top of the admin! I am incredibly lucky to have two workshop fairies (in the form of my wonderful Mum and fabulous Auntie) who hold fort for me back at HQ and carry out lots of prep work so I can whizz back along the M4 and get sewing again!
We hope to meet you soon, either as a client or a student!
