Click the play below to listen to the podcast

Welcome back to another episode of an indoor style hunter and today we are lucky enough to unite with the two directors Sophies of Kitesgrove!

Sophie Elborne is Creative Director and Sophie Coller is Managing Director and is here to talk about their company and the way they congratulate each other and guide the team working there.

We discuss the company's ethos of designing and approaching different types of projects. We also face some of the challenges they face and which are today related to their work. One of the key points that emerges from the discussion is the focus and adaptation that Kitesgrove meets the needs of its customers, preferring to work specifically on them rather than having an aesthetic and functional way.

We also cover some of the areas where our guests inspire and look at potential dream projects before entering the usual round of quick fire questions.

For all this and much more, be sure to tune in to hear what they have to say!
