About

Adrian Robins Interiors was established in 1983 giving us over 35 years experience. We have a loyal following of clients who appreciate quality and craftsmanship. They come back to us time and again and recommend us to family and friends.

Adrian is an expert in antique and modern upholstery with over 40 years experience. He specialises in complex pattern matching and has worked on pieces in Brighton Pavilion and Preston Manor. He can upholster just about anything – headboards, window seats, lecture theatres etc. Adrian takes huge pride in every aspect of his work.

Denise is well-versed in every aspect of interior design but has particular expertise in textiles. She knows her stock inside out and can lead you to the perfect fabric, wallpaper or paint. She’s familiar with different types of local properties and can advise you on what will work and why. Denise has an eye for design and a head for practicalities.

Alex, their son, has recently joined the business. He studied Furniture and Product design and has experience in design and manufacture, having previously work for Paul Smith Ltd and Weber Industries. He is very talented and we love having him around.

Issy, their daughter, hasn’t yet been introduced/forced into the business but after recently graduating in Fine Art we think it wont be long.....

Sustainability

Green issues are important to us. We source products from British mills and manufacturers wherever possible. We ensure waste is kept to a minimum, donating offcuts of fabric to local schools and craftspeople. If you move house, we’re more than happy to alter your curtains and blinds. Upholstery is much more sustainable than buying new furniture, potentially avoiding furniture from ever going to landfill. We sell a range of fabrics that are made from 100% recycled materials.

Testimonials

"I was able to be more adventurous with the designs in my home with Denise’s gentle guidance."
Florence, Hove
"It was great to feel we were talking to someone who was really listening and genuinely cared whether we would be happy with the final result."
Camilla and Tom, Brighton
"When it comes to interiors I know exactly what I want, I just don’t know where to find it. When I describe the look I’m after, the very first book Denise pulls out contains my ideal wallpaper. She then finds the paint that perfectly complements my fabric swatch and suggests the cushions that invariably make the room. It’s like she’s inside my head! As for Adrian, the armchair he re-upholstered is without a doubt the most comfortable chair in the house. After 10 years it still looks amazing and guests always comment on it. I was 7 months pregnant when he re-upholstered it and he suggested using the leftover fabric to create a footstool for my tired feet. To me “Adrian Robins” are a super talented couple and such genuinely lovely people, I’m forever recommending them to friends."
