Design Interiors was officially founded on January 26th, 1987 when Michael was able to base his newly created kitchen company in Brighton based department store Hanningtons. This was the home of Design Interiors until Hanningtons closed down in 2001. They moved to their Hove showroom shortly after, and two years later opened another shop in Haywards Heath. 14 years down the line in 2017, Design Interiors still operates from these two locations.
MICHAEL ROGERS – MANAGING DIRECTOR
I left school and worked for a local joinery company whilst doing an apprenticeship. It was from this young age that I discovered a love for interior design. I love building, and I love woodwork, and this is what inspired me to found Design Interiors. I have lived and worked across Europe, and this mix has helped me stay up-to-date and ahead of many design trends.
Interesting Fact: I once sailed 5000 km across the Atlantic from The Canary Islands to St. Lucia.
Lindsey Brett – PA to Managing Director
I met Michael while walking my dogs along the seafront, and we’ve been friends ever since! I have great experience and skill set in business development and have a great wealth of knowledge in sales, events, branding and marketing. There is such a high level of skill within Design Interiors, and I feel privileged being surrounded by such creative talent.
Interesting fact: I’ve travelled the world through my work, including Russia, Thailand, and Indonesia.
Noel FitzGerald – Designer
I have more than 30 years’ experience in interior design, and I’ve been working at Design Interiors for 17 years. It’s more like a family to me now, and seeing people happy is always a great feeling. I started working for Design interiors when Michael heard about my work and approached me to come and work with him. I’ve not looked back since.
Interesting fact: I love camping and often go on holidays with my wife and my dog to some beautiful UK locations.
Sharon Hartley – Designer
I moved to Sussex from the lake district 20 years ago, and I worked designing bespoke replica Georgian and Victorian furniture. I’ve been with Design Interiors for 12 years now, and variation is the key thing that I enjoy the most. Design Interiors offer so many different materials that each customer will walk away with something bespoke and unique, and I love helping them with that.
Interesting fact: I enjoy motorbiking and often visits different UK locations for mini breaks away. Recently I travelled through Europe on a motorbiking holiday with my husband.
Tim Brown – Designer
I’ve been working in professional design for 7 years now, and it all stems from my interest in sculpture and fine art. I feel accomplished in having installed nearly 700 bedrooms and 150 kitchens in my time. I love working at Design Interiors as design and installation is my passion. I get to bring my own skill set and creative license to each project, and I take pride in knowing that there’s a little bit of me in every design we do.
Interesting fact: I recently restored and re built a vintage vespa.
Thea Harrison Roberts – Design and Marketing Assistant
Following my work experience at Design interiors, I decided to stay on full time! Design interiors gave me a fantastic opportunity to learn on the job, and I’ve loved it all the way. Seeing people happy with their kitchens is a great feeling, and it really makes the job worthwhile. Everyone here is so supportive, and I love the team I work with.
Interesting fact: I am obsessed with watching planet earth and I love animals. I love writing and blogging and hope one day to publish something.
Dottie Rogers - Head of security
I have worked at Design Interiors for 9 years. I started here when I was a tiny puppy, and I take pride in meeting and greeting everyone who comes to the showroom. You’ll never catch me sleeping on the job! I love patrolling the shop and keeping an eye on who is coming and going.
Interesting fact: I sometimes assist Michael with on-site visits by surveying the properties, and especially the gardens!
