A Lancaster interior design company has been recognised for its sales record by one of the world’s best known designer brands.
Independent interior design company Mackies of Lancaster in Dalton Square, Lancaster, was visited by Nigel Bell the sales director of Zoffany/Sanderson.
Zoffany produce exclusive fabrics, paints, wallpapers and furniture and feature in beautifully designed houses and luxury hotels across the globe.
James opened his showroom and shop 15 years ago and Mackies’ reputation has steadily grown since then.
He and his wife Christine now run the shop with employees Sarah Mason, Kyra McDade and Larry Barcas using high quality local subcontractors from all over the North West.
James said: “The high street has its problems here, but independents and the self-employed now play a massive part in the future of our economy and there are great local stories to be told.” Nigel said: “It is with great delight and some surprise that we have watched this little shop become the overall sales leader across the UK.”
