Why Did You Start Your Own Business

We started our business because we saw an opening locally for quality bespoke interiors, especially in the Omagh Area. People are spending more money on their homes than ever before, and there is an increasing demand for something different. We attend trade shows all Over the UK & Europe, checking out the latest trends and sourcing products that will stand out. We pride ourselves on offering something a little bit different.

Best Things About Running Your Own Business

One of the best things about running your own business is being able to shape your own future. We can take our business where WE want it to go. We don’t have to listen to anyone else, we have a vision and we keep the heads down and work to that. We work hard and we are very proud of the fact that we have never taken a loan.

Main Challenges Facing The Business

Every business has its challenges. And every week there’s something new. I think one of the biggest challenges facing businesses today is how to be digitally intelligent and social media savvy; knowing how to use it for business is essential and no longer an option if you want to survive. Knowledge is power!

What Advice Would You Give Someone Starting A Business

All the clichés are true; Be prepared to work harder than you ever have before. You will always work harder for yourself than you will for anyone else. All true. If you love what you do, it’s half the battle. Joanne and I really enjoy what we do, and I can honestly say We don’t ever dread going into work. (Maybe the odd day!) We have been in business now for five years and being in a partnership is kinda like another marriage in many ways. Being honest and thrashing things out is the key!
