Who We Are

Providing interior spaces that are well planned, pleasant, enjoyable places to work and live in, is what we do.  We work to achieve the most we can for the client, within the project budget. By listening and responding to each of our clients, we create interiors that are tailored to meet their needs. Our aim is to express the client's nature and values.

The majority of our business comes from repeat clients and personal recommendations.

“The lighting and colour schemes were well chosen and the furniture was selected to meet our specific requirements which included working in an open plan environment yet with individual space, each team also has a break out area for localised meetings - and this has worked incredibly well for us. The fact that all areas of the project was managed and overseen by EKD was a massive bonus; there was always support on hand for whatever turned up….. or didn’t!”
