YEO

We design, we make, we install. We think we’re pretty good at it. Good enough that other designers come to us for help with their projects. We work with architects, interior designers, building contractors, construction professionals and private clients.

From single rooms to whole house interior fit-outs, we manage the whole process for you. YEO is a design studio committed to creating a space less ordinary. Interiors as unique as your experiences, as wild as you dare.

WHO

YEO is James Yeo and Adam Hodgson, old schoolmates from Bude in North Cornwall. After leaving school, James started a five-year apprenticeship in fine furniture making and Adam started in construction.

James founded his first business in 2007 and headed up country to London, while Adam moved into cabinet making and founded his first design business in Cornwall in 2009. In 2017, Adam joined James as a business partner to create YEO. And here we are.

WHERE

We have bases in London, Devon and Cornwall. Our studio in the capital is bang in the heart of West London, in buzzing Notting Hill. Our Cornwall studio is in our home town of Bude, where a clifftop run or a swim in the sea pool is a lunchtime thing.

Nearby, in North Devon, is the 20,000 sq ft production facility. Everything we make, we make right here in Britain, whether in our workshop or by one of our network of specialists and partners.

WHY

YEO gives you what’s missing from other design studios. That bit of edge. Our home is the West Country, where the North Atlantic swell and gales shape more than just the cliffs. And they take some shaping. So did we.

With us, you’ll get a bit of that wild thrown in. We’ll add it to your home so you can sit on it, open doors to it, eat on it, make spontaneous love against it (or to it, it’s your cutlery drawer...), invite friends and enemies round to drool over it, rock out in it. And once we’ve made everything, fitted it for you, cleaned up after ourselves (honestly) we’ll then smother you with our loving aftercare. We’re not the love ‘em and leave ‘em type.
