In this month’s Interior Designer magazine, Co-founder and Director Martin Goddard was invited to share his definition of what hospitality means to him.

“The house we live in is a former coaching inn and would once have welcomed weary travellers with a smile, a bed, stable for the horse, a roaring fire and a flagon of mead. The essence of hospitality is unchanging. It’s about feeling comfortable and special, about interacting with people and break down barriers, with your host coming out from behind the counter to welcome you. If we can create memorable backdrops for the best doormen and maitre d’s to greet their customers warmly, I’m happy.”
