Claire Rendall Interior Designer
Unique projects for private clients and property developers.
I am an interior and furniture designer with 28 years’ experience in the industry.
My work has included a wide variety of projects from historic houses, city chic apartments and prime time television. My aim is to create interiors that reflect their owners. Each is a unique response to those people and to their brief. High quality and attention to detail is often the only common link.
Thank you for visiting my site. I hope that you find it useful and if you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
The most satisfying part of being a designer is turning the ordinary or even downright ghastly into something special. The transformation, the before and after, is the real Ta Da moment. It’s not really possible to appreciate the work that has been done unless you see these images side by side.
In many cases on the enclosed project images, the final decoration was a relatively small part of the process. Structural problems had to be resolved including concrete cancer and serious damp issues. With outdoor swimming pool terraces, designs had to implement rigorous safety legislation before any landscaping and styling could be considered.
Taking buildings back to their bare structure is an excellent opportunity to address any problems with plumbing and drainage and to install state of the art home control systems for heating, air conditioning, security and lighting.
By popular demand we are now producing our own range of accessories starting with cushions based on our image bank of photographs. These images ranging from the Palazzo Giusti in Verona to Circular Quay in Sydney have been computer enhanced and we’re really pleased with the results. We’re printing on a variety of fabrics from linens to faux velvets and hope to be able add fabrics suitable for exterior use.

Furniture from the ocean’s plastic
In 2016 I was approached by Robert Milder of Van de Sant to create a new range of furniture made from ocean plastic.
It’s estimated that 8 million tons of plastic enter our oceans every year and there are 5 trillion pieces of plastic currently out there. The problem is so acute that it has not surprisingly started to enter our food chain.
The furniture is first and foremost both elegant, chic and of excellent quality. The fact that it’s made from plastic recovered from the ocean is a bonus and a massive one at that.
In The Media
I have been fortunate enough to be asked to appear in front of the television camera. Firstly, it was part of BBC1’s Animal Park, a series set at Longleat and my part was discussing Lord Baths’ wish to paint the Elizabethan Great Hall. Following this I was asked to design for and present on BBC1’s DIY SOS. Yes, we do do all the work in the time frame and I’m thrilled to say we helped some very special people.
