Amy Exton

Grad­u­at­ed from a back­ground in fine arts (Cen­tral Saint Mar­tins) before cre­at­ing her suc­cess­ful career as a set design­er. A move to Mar­gate in 2016, set her path towards the direc­tion of inte­ri­or spaces; util­is­ing her dis­tinc­tive & sig­na­ture style with the bold use of graph­ics & colours. Her 1st ven­ture into this new path was the @margatelocationhouse (which she runs & man­ages along­side her design ser­vices). Not one too shy from tak­ing up new tal­ents, she has recent­ly been delv­ing into more tra­di­tion­al crafts in par­tic­u­lar pur­su­ing spe­cial­ism in mosaics for inte­ri­ors & archi­tec­ture. Infus­ing her unique sig­na­ture spin, she main­ly inter­prets her designs for ceram­ic floors & sig­nage. Amy has been com­mis­sioned for such clients as Dream­land, The George & Heart Mar­gate, & Mar­gate Suites (A bou­tique fan­ta­sy style set of hotel rooms).

Stu­dio Mond

A lifestyle store and design stu­dio based in Mar­gate. They cre­ate prod­ucts, inte­ri­ors, images and films that express their obses­sion with mate­r­i­al, process and touch. They make thought­ful­ly, explor­ing sub­tle con­trasts in tex­ture and mate­r­i­al striv­ing to bring an hon­est ground­ing aes­thet­ic to their work no mat­ter the medi­um. They work holis­ti­cal­ly as a hus­band and wife team (back­grounds in sound design, photography,textiles & inte­ri­or design), using their com­pli­men­ta­ry skillsets and shared vision to con­vey a slow beauty.

Stu­dio Wellesly

A Mar­gate based ceram­ics stu­dio for the imper­fect home. Ceram­i­cist and inte­ri­or styl­ist Karin is behind Stu­dio Welles­ley (pre­vi­ous­ly Crackden&Wonkypot) & believes in the word hemtrevligt’, (which express­es more of a feel­ing then a word in her native Swedish lan­guage). Rather than adorn­ing your home in a way that is on trend or fol­lows a strict colour scheme she believes in mak­ing it your own — a com­fort­able place with your mem­o­ries and a place for unique pieces that you love. Her ceram­ics are defined by this and as such tend to have organ­ic shapes, tac­tile sur­faces and a mixed tech­nique approach.

Beat­rice Larkin

A woven tex­tile design­er who works close­ly with a Jacquard mill in Lan­cashire to pro­duce meri­no and recy­cled cot­ton fab­rics for the inte­ri­ors mar­ket. Her fab­rics are recog­nis­able for their soft­ened hand drawn geo­met­ric pat­terns in a pared down colour palette. She’s sold to retail, inte­ri­or design­ers, archi­tects, hotels and gal­leries as well as work­ing on bespoke com­mis­sions and col­lab­o­ra­tions. Cus­tomers include Heal’s, Dayles­ford Organ­ic, Made, Stu­dio Ash­by, Con­ran and Part­ners, The Robin and Luci­enne Day Foun­da­tion and The Tate Modern.


An archi­tec­ture prac­tise run by Tim and Tam which is client focused, cel­e­brat­ing each project as an oppor­tu­ni­ty for growth, change and a unique­ness that can only be found in that col­lab­o­ra­tion. They are dri­ving their projects towards net zero car­bon emis­sions through con­struc­tion and use and have invest­ed in devel­op­ing their skills to offer pas­sive house and ener­gy solu­tions to dra­mat­i­cal­ly reduce fuel bills. They work hard to cre­ate an awe­some, pos­i­tive, col­lab­o­ra­tive client team through­out the whole process with an eye on joy, detail and sus­tain­able, cir­cu­lar materials.
