Highly experienced and with a faithful client base, Colin Orchard has honed a style that is classic English with a modern twist. He’s never afraid to mix furniture periods. “I want my clients to be totally happy, but excited, too,” he says. He designs for a relaxed lifestyle, assuming dogs will sit on the furniture, no matter how grand it is.
Since training under Colefax and Fowler’s grande dame Imogen Taylor, this firm has developed an outstanding reputation for combining traditional country-house style with a restrained sense of grandeur. His current projects include a large private residence in New York, which is being totally rebuilt.
