Lesley and her team are brilliant. Received a friendly, warm and confident service from the very start. Lesley worked closely with us to recommend fabric and styles and managed expectation perfectly, the curtains we received are beautiful and were delivered on time. Lesley is a pleasure to work with and we look forward to contracting her in future.
