British made art deco inspired bespoke furniture company
Louise Fleming – Founder & MD
Louise has always had an interest in Art, Architecture and History which led her to study both Classics and Museum Management at University in the early 1990s.В As well as a passion for all things Greek and Roman, Louise is particularly interested in the 1920s and 30s which is what inspired her to set up Shilou with its collection of Art Deco inspired furniture.
Louise manages all the day to day running of the business – liaising with both Clients and the Workshop to ensure that the end results are exactly what is required.В She has a great attention to detail and is passionate about customer service – often going above and beyond to make sure that our customers’ expectations are exceeded where possible.
She is always on the look out for inspiration for new designs – devouring Art Deco art, history, architecture and literature for ideas!
Dianne Brabham – Sales Consultant
After a career in customer service, training, sales and marketing in various market sectors, including five years with P&O Cruises travelling the world, Dianne has, over the last 15 years, concentrated on property sourcing and sales as well as promoting Shilou’s range of furniture.В В Her extensive customer service background gives her the experience to approach property investing and bespoke furniture sales in a dedicated and calm manner, never phased by the myriad of issues that are always present.
Her life experience has proved more challenging and varied than any university degree would ever have qualified her for, and she feels she has graduated in life many times over!
