Emily Todhunter founded the company in 1988, with Kate Earle joining as her partner 1998. Since then the business has expanded rapidly both in size and scope. Projects range from English country houses to well known restaurants, ocean-going yachts, nightclubs, 5 star hotels, ski chalets and beautiful homes worldwide.
Despite the demands of an exacting clientele the team maintains a refreshing, down to earth and positive approach to all challenges, with the result that much of their business is by referral or new projects for happy clients and their families with whom genuine friendships have been made. Emily and Kate are both married with young families. They both divide their time between London and their houses in the country.
