Sunday Times best-selling romantic novelist Katie Fforde has always been a huge advocate for family life and the home, settling and raising a family in the heart of the Cotswolds. Hearty meals and the smell of something in the Rayburn to welcome and share amongst family and friends has always been part of it.
It is this deep routed sense of the home and especially the kitchen, that has lit Katie’s passion for homewares.
Her children, now all grown up and raising their own families, share the same passion and being the creative types they are, have always chatted with Katie (usually over food and wine) discussing ideas and dreams of creating their own range of homewares.
The idea was to encapsulate the Cotswold lifestyle in a contemporary yet quintessentially English style that ties into Katie’s books and her way of life.
It has been a challenging yet exciting journey, but it now feels that the visions and chats have come to fruition and Katie Fforde Designs has finally arrived.
