Meet the team at WL Interiors.
Wayne Long started WL Interiors in 1995 after many years working in the design and manufacturing of soft furnishings. Working closely with designers and with creative flare WL Interiors became the go-to company for specialist manufacturing. Since then we have grown to serve the care and hospitality industry completing refurbishments and new builds throughout the UK.
I handle the design for clients at WL Interiors and deal with projects in care and hospitality primarily Having worked with fabrics my entire career, its a surprise, but I still love it, the variation of the designs we get to work on keeps.the job exciting.
Head of design
I work with new and existing clients on a range of different projects and the variety of my day keeps the role exciting. I love the office and production team at WL and how much it feels like a family. Many of the staff have been around for over 10/15 years and the team mentality is hard to beat.
I have worked with Wayne since he started WL Interiors and feel like we are part of a family, the customers we deal with and the people I work with make every day a pleasure. On a daily basis, I will be dealing with supplier issues and making sure everything is running smoothly on the team's projects. My favourite part of the process is installation, getting to see months of work come together and the look on our clients faces.
Working at WL Interiors gives me a varied workload, which I love. From working on designs, liaising with clients to coordinating projects through the workroom I am involved in every stage. Coming from a textiles background, I really enjoy sourcing fabrics and trims suitable for a specific client specification. It's really exciting seeing the final projects come together, whether it be a small boutique hotel or a large group care home
I enjoy working at WL Interiors, On a daily basis, I speak to a wide range of people from project managers, interior designers and architects. As a result, each day I am learning. Being new to this industry it is a pleasure to work with the seamstresses at WL Interiors, they are knowledgeable and passionate and have given me a deep interest in textiles through speaking with them.
Any company is only as good as its people, and we like to think we have the best soft furnishings team in the UK. We may be slightly biased but our seamstresses have worked as a team for 10+ years and combined have hundreds of years experience.
