Kim Johnson-Young was born and raised locally in Kidderminster, Worcestershire. She first began to learn about upholstery and soft furnishings on a Government run Prince's Trust Scheme in the early 1980's. Since this time she has owned premises in her local town for over 30 years, firstly starting out in New Road and now working from her own showroom at the bottom of Comberton Hill near the world renowned Severn Valley Steam Railway.
Kim is inspired by the things she sees around her and the trends she sees coming through from the world of fashion and how this manifests itself in the world of home interiors. She loves nothing more than to experiment applying these trends in her custom-made designs for sofas, chairs, curtains and soft furnishings. She also maintains a close eye on the world of home accessories and exhibits these in her showroom.
Kim still remains small, niche and family managed, and Kim herself is very 'hands-on' in the business.
