Muddy says: If you want to give your home an uplift or go for a whole new look without breaking the bank, Layered Lounge offers original quality products that will stand the test of time.
Mums Lou McGuire and Suzy Humphreys met at the school gates and realised they had a shared passion for interior design. Online store Layered Lounge was borne from their shared frustration at not being able to find the perfect finishing touches when they were doing up their own houses (Suzy is in Gerrards Cross, Lou in Beaconsfield).
They’ve plumped for that middle-ground between ubiquitous, trend-led high street picks and outrageously expensive designer pieces. The results are beautiful, stylish and affordable – check out the website for their classy selection of cushions, lamps, vases, tableware, glassware and decorative home accents, such as candles (with 15% of the proceeds from fragrance candles going to a local charity).
