Parkstone Interiors was created in 2003, by Joanne Nathanail; but the idea was born many years before.
In the sixth form at School, Joe excelled at Economics & ‘Textiles & Dress’ (needlework). In an effort to pursue both subjects, she studied ‘Textile Management’ at Leeds University, and graduated with an honours degree in 1990.
While studying, Joe had raised extra money by making curtains for her Mother’s friends and neighbours, and by taking a Saturday job with Laura Ashley in their Home Furnishing store. The business is therefore founded on more than 20 years of experience.
When an opportunity arose to start her own business in 2003, Joe seized it and established the business named after her home, in the small village of Bletchingley, in Surrey. It is backed up by her Textiles ‘A’ Level, Honours Degree, and an Interior Design Diploma (from the National Design Academy). She has also attended soft furnishings courses run by the prestigious Merrick & Day Academy.
The majority of our projects are in Surrey & West Sussex. We have been delighted to supply soft furnishings for Tonbridge Castle in Kent. Our work has appeared in various prestigious homes magazines.
