Southey Interiors

About Us

Southey Interiors was started by Roger in 2001 out of a small unit on Southey Street in Keswick and is inspired by the name of Robert Southey the Lakeland writer and poet. Did you know Robert was the first to be attributed with publishing one of our favourite fairy tales. Which one ? Why not pop in and find out, or look for clues on this site.

Having outgrown the premises on Southey Street the business relocated to the Town Centre in 2016 and now offers a lovely new showroom for customers to enjoy.

The aims of the business are;-

  1. To offer medium to high market, leading brand products of both traditional and modern styles that may not be expected in the Lake District, but never the less are appreciated.
  2. Provide a comprehensive service from design to installation for the entire home.
  3. Give best advice to what are sometimes complex and often expensive decisions.
  4. Be a centre of excellence in the centre of this beautiful part of the world.

Our Services

We generally offer to do as much or as little as our clients require, from supplying a farrow & ball tester pot to a complete interior refurbishment.

Interior Design

This is a very subjective area where we all have our own ideas. We will help you to achieve your ideal scheme and guide you through the many possibilities. Our in-shop design assistance is complimentary and non-chargeable. We also offer to carry out home consultations for a nominal fee which will be refunded against purchases dependent on scale. A whole interior design concept including mood boards, CAD design etc will be chargeable. Please discuss this at time of initial enquiry.

Bespoke Furniture Design

Furniture design, be it a kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, home study or an individual piece is offered and is a key part of our success. Generally we do not charge for design as we anticipate making a profit from the sale of goods to cover these costs however, we do appreciate that some people prefer not to feel obligated to buy and therefore if you would like to purchase a “design only” service please discuss this at point of enquiry.

Project Management & Installation

We offer comprehensive installation and project management services on all product lines, from initial site survey to completion. We also have details of trades people for those clients who may prefer to contract them directly.


Many of the goods that you can buy from Southey Interiors are bought in from various large manufacturers however the more bespoke products, including furniture and some soft furnishings are hand made either in our premises or by our bespoke furniture manufacturer in Manchester.
