If you feel daunted by the prospect of starting an interior project
for just one room or even the whole house you will be guided by interior
designer and owner Pam Lennon. Pam has a BA Honours Degree in interior
design and has run the business with her husband Peter for the last 25 years.
She can give expert advice on fabrics, wall coverings, furniture, lighting and
curtain treatments..

Pam says: "Our main objective is to establish what look the client is trying
to create and translate the idea into a beautiful and workable space that will
stand the test of time. People are often reluctant to consult an interior
designer but, in reality, this can often save the client time and money. Often
by changing one or two key elements in a room it is possible to create a
completely different atmosphere."

When asked what the current trends are for this season Pam explained:
"There is a definite return to a more opulent look with many of this season's
fabrics featuring figured velvet and embroidered silk. Suede and leather are
not only popular as upholstery fabrics but are also being used as borders and
pelmets for curtains and blinds."

Chess Interiors is celebrating 25 years in business this year. It was
established by Pam's brother Gerald Nesling and designer David Gamblin.
Gerald now runs the fibrous plaster division of Chess Interiors. He has
considerable experience in advising clients on cornices, ceiling designs and
also renovation projects

The company's 25 years of trading has enabled them to build up
relationships with many skilled suppliers including curtain-makers,
upholsterers, furniture suppliers and specialist manufacturers including
Fashion - a High Wycombe based blind-making firm.
