Parkside Opens Two More London Design Studios
Parkside has opened two new Design Studios as it continues to develop its position in the commercial tile market.
Parkside Design Studios can now be found in Balham and Notting Hill, London, joining the tile specification company’s existing Design Studios in Chelsea, Clerkenwell and the Cotswolds as well as a hub at its Leicester headquarters.
Design Studios are home to samples for many collections and can be used by local architecture and design communities to explore over 1,500 tile designs that are available from Parkside. Run by knowledgeable and experienced studio managers and acting as hubs for the company’s growing team of consultants, the Design Studios are a key part of its approach to high quality service.
For example, the company’s Clerkenwell Design Studio regularly hosts events and workshops for the local professional community and has been involved in photography exhibitions and taken an active role in events such as Clerkenwell Design Week. All studios also provide space for consultations and to explore tile options for projects.
Mark Williams, sales design director, comments; “As a tactile surface finish, tiles are best decided upon through seeing samples. Of course, our website has a five-minute sample selector which is utilised by architects and designers on a regular basis, but sometimes there is a need to explore and discuss options for projects in more depth. Our Design Studios provide this opportunity and act as a place where our consultants can help to build a tile specification, or simply where people can come together to explore our impressive collection.
“We’re hugely excited about these two new locations as they make it easier for local architects, specifiers and interior designers to experience how Parkside can help lift tile specifications out the ordinary. As restrictions allow, we look forward to welcoming the local professional communities in to celebrate with us, and also to share ideas and knowledge on how to bring the durability and ease of tiles to workplaces, housing developments, retail, hotels, bars and restaurants and many more locations.”
