New Southam interior design firm is the realisation of a 25-year dream
A stylish new interior design studio in Southam town centre is the realisation of a 25-year-old ambition for owner Lindsay Vincent.
She’d dreamed of running her own furniture and accessories firm for a quarter of a century and this autumn she finally decided to act.
Incredibly, Lindsay opened the Simple Interior Company store in Coventry Street just a few weeks later to make her dream come true.
Lindsay explained: “This has been my ambition for 25 years but I have only just plucked up the courage to go for it.
“I know it’s going to be one of the biggest challenges of my life but that’s much better than a lifetime of regret.
“That was the clincher for me in the end – I didn’t want to be left looking back in a few years’ time and saying to myself ‘I wonder’.”
Once she’d made the decision, Lindsay, from West Haddon, Northamptonshire, was scouring the area for a suitable property to launch her new venture.
It didn’t take long, thanks to Warwickshire-based commercial property specialists ehB Reeves, who helped Lindsay complete a deal on a converted cottage in the heart of Southam town centre.
Lindsay said: “My daughter Amy lives in Southam and I’ve always thought it was a lovely town and would be ideal for me to open a shop.
“Now it’s happened and happened very quickly. I saw the premises, I spoke with the landlord and with ehB, I told them I wanted it and the next thing I know I’m open for business.
“It’s been a bit of a whirlwind but I’m loving it and the response from local people has been really positive and complimentary.”
Jonathan Blood, senior surveyor at ehB Reeves, said: “We are delighted to help Lindsay find the ideal property for her to launch her first interior design store and we wish her every success in Southam.
“Simple Interior Design certainly brings something fresh, stylish and quirky to the town centre and we’re glad there’s been such a positive reaction to it.”
