AN interior design business that specialises in show homes for large-scale property developers is on track to almost double in size this coming financial year.

Lifestlye Interiors was established in 2009 and came under new ownership from Gemma Schofield and former England International rugby player, Dean Schofield.

The company has added 50 per cent more contracts to its current order book and is projecting a turnover of between £1.75 and £2M by this time next year.

Gemma said: “We are now in strong position for huge growth, and we’re forecasting a turnover of around £1.75m, even £2m, in the next financial year, which may seem like ambitious target that is almost double our current income, but we already have a full order book, with lots more in the pipeline.”

Since taking over the business from Elaine Gore, who remains as a consultant, Gemma and Dean have invested into the company with additional staff, new software, IT and operating systems, new uniforms and vehicles and they have plans for a larger head office in the coming year.

Gemma said: “This next stage of growth will be achieved by expanding within the areas we already operate, as well as making the most of our fantastic industry and sporting contacts.

“We have just finished the interior fit-out of a new 18-room hotel in Wesham, Lancashire within the Mill Farm Sports Village, home to rising football club AFC Fylde.

“I am aware of the pitfalls of growing too quickly, but we have a great team and a strong vision for how we can achieve success.

“We’re unique in that we design and manufacture our own soft furnishings in house and do not simply source fixtures and fittings from the typical places, because of this we bring added value to all our projects, responding to the customer demand for individual and bespoke looks.”
