Sarah is the curtains, blinds and soft furnishings side of the business. Sarah has been involved in interiors since she was 16 years of age. Her keen interest in this, developed from her owning her own home and a love of textiles from an early age. She taught herself basic curtain making skills to beautifully dress her own windows and discovered she had a natural ‘eye’ for colour combinations and a love of hand stitching.
Sarah’s passion for working with fabrics drove her to complete a course at Suffolk College to gain more in-depth knowledge and skill in all aspects of window dressing. From blinds and curtain headings of all kinds to elaborate pelmet shapes, swags and tails; everything hand stitched and made to fit any shaped window.
She soon grew in confidence and excellence and took the decision to start up her own business – Sarah Rose Soft Furnishings at Stonham Barn Leisure Complex in 1996. This business flourished for 9 years, in which time Sarah Built up a large clientele and an impeccable reputation.
Alongside Sarah’s business at Stonham Barns, was an extremely skilled upholsterer, Nigel at Cherish Upholstery. Realising both of their potentials a strong working relationship was developed.
In 2005 both businesses took the decision to combine efforts and provide their customers with an unrivaled level of experience and workmanship to cater for all interior needs. This also required a move in premises to accommodate both businesses.
Together both Sarah Rose Soft Furnishings and Cherish Upholstery, pride themselves on offering a personal service to their customers, with home consultations and free experienced advice given. The guidance they provide can help people make confident decisions to transform their houses into their dream homes.
