Quarrendon Interiors & Claire
Claire Baillie (B.A.Hons)
Quarrendon Interiors was established in 1998 to help clients create beautiful interiors for their homes by offering a friendly design service from initial consultation through to supply and installation. The owner, Claire Baillie, qualified in 1982 with a BA Hons in Interior Design.
Before setting up the business in Amersham, Claire gained valuable work experience in London for various design houses, including Colourflair, (residential interiors around London) and David Hicks International, where she spent many years working on commercial and residential projects. Many of those were hotels - in London, The Conrad Hotel at Chelsea Harbour and abroad in Japan, for the Okura Group, where she learnt her project management skills. After Hick’s demise in the nineties, Claire became a freelance designer working on contracts with Stephen Ryan Design & Decoration (often featured in interior magazines), Khuan Chew & Associates and Blanchards.
She left London in 1995 to start a family and launched Quarrendon Interiors in the spring of 1998.
Since then, the business has grown steadily and been involved in many residential projects around the Home Counties. These vary in size, but QI is capable of supplying and managing a variety of contractors who they call upon to work with them when necessary, to enable a smooth and successful completion to their projects. They pride themselves on being able to offer a flexible service to meet any client’s requirements and to work within anyone’s budget.
My experience with Claire @ Quarrendon has been totally satisfactory. Claire was recommended to me, always a good sign! I found Claire to be very professional, I knew more or less what I wanted, at no moment did Claire push upon me anything that I was not 100% happy with. Curtains were delivered and hung in time frame quoted with minimal fuss and mess, at really respectable prices. All went very smoothly, hassle free. I would certainly recommend Quarrendon.

Quarrendon Interiors have provided an excellent service from design ideas thorough to delivery of a finished project - always professional but with a personal touch.
C. Shorten-Conn, Gerrards Cross
After remodelling our house we engaged Quarrendon Interiors to help select and fit the soft furnishings. We are thrilled with the results achieved and cannot praise them highly enough. At the initial consultation they listened carefully to what we wanted and after that their knowledge made selecting fabrics a relatively simple and enjoyable process. Their approach throughout our project was thoroughly professional and nothing was allowed to get in the way of the perfect finish. We have since used them to help purchase sofas and other individual items of furniture and this has proved to be every bit as successful. They have managed to turn a daunting task into a real pleasure.

Quarrendon Interiors helped me design and pull colour schemes together for my house with regards to curtains, blinds, upholstery, cushions bedspreads etc – you name it Claire sourced it. Very nice and easy to work wi th, not pushy in any way, just very pleasant. As far as the quality of work, it has always been of the highest quality with a superb finish. Pricing has always been competitive and Claire looks at alternatives where needed.

Quarrendon Interiors was excellent in providing a quality soft furnishings service at my home. The choice of fabrics and the understanding of what I specifically required was very good . The implementation of the blinds and curtaining was dealt with in a proficient manner and Quarrendon Interiors provided a reliable after service too.
