About

Squint is a unique, independent design company which produces and retails premium quality, bespoke, hand-crafted exuberant furniture and home accessories.

 

Squint was the creation of Lisa Whatmough, who through her passion for textiles and with a very British design sensibility has created a world of richly decorative home wares which are a fusion of fashion and the decorative Arts, each UK made item becoming a piece of contemporary art work. Lisa imbues Squint with her own style and has created a clear visual signature mixing ages and social and artistic heritages to create her own conceptual vision of how we live today and sells internationally in some of the worlds top design and fashion stores.

 

 

 

Our range is new and in most instances made to order, sofas and armchairs can be designed to specific widths and depths and with or without seat cushions, for smaller environments legs can be made to unscrew to help with delivery concerns. Examples presented on this site can be purchased to the same colour ways as shown although the hand stitched nature of the patch work process means that no two are ever identical and orders can be placed referencing a specific colour combination from another product. Please contact us to request further details on ordering a bespoke palette of fabrics.

 

Squint works with a number of long-established workshops, all independently family owned businesses, both they and Squint are committed to maintaining the founding principles of excellence in bespoke design and production as most are second or third generation and are specialist manufacturers of classical and contemporary upholstered furniture, textiles and accessories. Products are handmade to the highest standards of craftsmanship, pieces being made to order using top-quality materials by a skilled and dedicated workforce.

 

Furniture lead times run at between ten and twelve weeks and accessories six to eight and any items ready to go will be shown as Off The Peg.

 

Squint also sells through Harrods, Liberty, Conran, Designers Guild, Lane Crawford Hong Kong, Shanghai and Beijing and Bloomingdales Dubai and ships globally, for international enquiries we will require an address in order to discuss delivery options and associated costs.
