Home inspiration from Richard Grafton Interiors


If updating or completely reinventing your home were at the top of your list for 2020 it is likely that everything has been put on hold due to the government lock down. Once lifted, you may be worried about having the time it takes to plan how you want your home to look and work for the way you live, the expert team at Richard Grafton Interiors (RGI) has it covered.

As we spend more time indoors in our house, we start to look at our home in a different light and see where it needs an update and all those little or big jobs we’ve been putting off, become more noticeable.

The Yorkshire-based RGI showrooms are the perfect place to start when embarking on any interiors project as they’re packed full of the latest home accessories, furniture, fabrics and more; all within beautiful room sets. All this is supported by a team of interior designers and architects that can help with everything from choosing the perfect fabric for a blind to redesigning your whole kitchen or bathroom, from planning through to installation and making the final finishing touches.

Recent interiors trends have all been about textured fabrics, metallics, dark and striking tones for a retro glamour vibe and this look is showcased in both the Harrogate and Ilkley RGI showrooms, where customers can pick up ideas for recreating the look at home. This year will be even better, with the latest interiors’ trends from around the globe and the region available for RGI customers to choose from.

2020 furniture trends exclusive to Richard Grafton Interiors

This will be the year of amazing, beautifully-made furniture pieces that add instant wow factor to your home. Available in both Ilkley and Harrogate showrooms and Wetherby once open is a special selection of Julian Chichester furniture, often featuring specialist finishes, that can be customised and are made using new and unusual materials. The eclectic range handcrafts a variety of textures together seamlessly, to create an elegant finish.

For a unique addition to the home, RGI customers will also be able to choose from more unusual pieces from Andrew Martin, a furniture range with storytelling and adventure at its heart. Each piece is an ode to a lifetime of travel, so perfect for RGI and for the Yorkshire homeowners who want to bring an international influence into their homes. Both ranges evoke individuality and allow customers to feel like they have purchased something compelling and timeless.

Handmade in Yorkshire

As Yorkshire’s premier interior architecture and design house, RGI has always been proud of its Yorkshire roots, with its home-grown manufacturing, design and installation team, Richard Grafton Interiors projects often take influence from and work with materials and products from our beautiful region.

Richard Grafton explains: “There is nothing ‘off the shelf’ about what we do. We can source anything from any interiors brands around the world and are very excited about the new ranges we are introducing to our customers in 2020. We also know that many of our customers like to know that their kitchen, bathroom vanity unit, sofa or sideboard has been hand crafted locally to their exact specification, which is why we have our own artisan manufacturing facility in the heart of Yorkshire.”
