Interior Visions as the brainchild of Sue Cloake began it’s journey about 25 years ago. Sue has always been an Interior Designer and curtain maker, and established the business to fit around her young family in the early 1990’s.
"Creating furnishings has always been a passion of mine, and I discovered more and more that customers would come to me with their design needs and problems, and luckily I would be able to offer them a solution, having a good eye for colour and perhaps having encountered a similar design conundrum before.”
Having moved to North Devon from the London area in 2000, Sue became aware that there was a shortage of curtain fabric suppliers. As more and more of her customers were asking where they could buy good quality furnishing fabric at prices that would not break the bank, Interior Visions was born.
We buy ‘end of line’ and ‘discontinued’ fabrics from UK and continental suppliers and, because the designers are happy to clear their stock to us, we buy at a heavily discounted price - which of course we are more than happy to pass on to our customers. We also find that our customers like to see the fabric on the roll, drape and handle it, which is not always possible when searching through a swatch book or online for the perfect fabric.
Although we have only been supplying fabric alongside the Design and Make Up side of the company since 2016, the business has gone from strength to strength with customers travelling from all over Devon to visit our once a month pop-up shops, which showcase all the fabrics we currently have to offer and to discuss any furnishing projects which they may like us to undertake.
For a small deposit, we are also happy for our customers to ‘borrow’ a fabric swatch or a roll of fabric so they can try the fabric ‘In Situ’ before they buy.
