Creative Design Interiors was established in 1972 which means it is over 40 years old! It used to be on the A6 but we moved to Dorchester Parade in 2002, where parking is now much easier.
The Company was the idea of two friends Mr Clayton and Mr Dolman, hence its original name of CD Interiors, but has now been renamed Creative Design Interiors by the current owner, Helen Jackson.
Helen started with CD Interiors as a bookkeeper, working upstairs in a little office for 10 hours a week. She would take any opportunity however, to get downstairs with the fabrics and the customers, as this was her passion. Helen was in the middle of completing a Diploma in Interior Design and had always had an eye for colour and design…. and loved chatting to the customers! As luck would have it one of the Interior Designers left and Helen managed to persuade the owner that she could do both jobs, so she dragged her desk downstairs into the showroom.
In 2005 the owner started to discuss retirement. Helen loved her job so much that, as the saying goes: “she bought the Company!” She now has her own bookkeeper – her very hard working and loyal Mum.
Creative Designs offer a very personal & friendly service including free advice and measuring in your home. Or if you need more help in deciding on your new scheme, we offer a chargeable design service, which is refundable against a purchase. The showroom is packed full with carpets, blinds and fabric samples for customers to look at and to borrow if required. Helen will offer advice and help in the process from start to finish. Most of our custom is from repeat business or through recommendations.
