I wanted the blackest of black velvet, after many samples JAI managed to source the blackest velvet I have ever come across, we were thrilled with the outcome and the price quoted for the work was a third of what we had been quoted by a well know much larger company. We insisted on hand studding as well which set of the black velvet beautifully.

James Albert Interiors achieved all the seating in Spoon ready for the opening back some nearly three years ago. Since then we have had thousands or even millions of bums on these seats! We decided to revamp the seating after three years and asked Serena if she could redo the seating again for us last month in September 2019.  This she did with complete ease almost over a weekend so we did not have to loose the seating we already had for our customers.  Great job. Happy days.

We consulted JAI on choices for the kitchen dining area which is a reasonable.size. JAI pointed us in exactly the right direction, helping us to choose the right fabric to match our freshly decorated kitchen diner.
Serena made us a detachable cat scratch proof piece for our beautiful new curtains, such a great idea. Thank you.

We moved to Henley in 2017 and realized that our London curtains would not fit our new home. JAI altered our curtains to fit perfectly.

We then decided that our sofa needed a revamp so we  commissioned JAI to give us ideas as to how we could do this.  JAI came up with some fabulous ideas without us having to reupholster the complete sofa which suited our needs right down to the ground.

This year we went back to JAI again to get a loose cover made for our sofa bed. Serena”s attention to detail  is the reason she is so successful…... she wants all her clients to be more than happy with the work she does.
