As the first point of contact for customers, Dextene is very much the hands-on director of Ellinis Interiors who makes sure all jobs are running smoothly and progressing according to plan in the company’s London workshop.
Clients describe their working relationship with Dextene as genuinely friendly and welcoming with an infectious ‘can-do’ attitude.
Dextene describes herself as passionate, focussed and a bit of a workaholic with a down-to-earth sense of humour that keeps her just on the right side of sanity.
Add to this her compelling ability to combine natural creativity with entrepreneurial energy and you soon see that Ellinis Interiors is all about improving the interior design experience and bringing Dextene’s distinctive way of working to London’s curtain and blinds making industry. The only thing she doesn’t do is sew!
Marcia is Ellinis Interior’s Work Room Manager and the fount of all our soft-furnishings knowledge.
With over 20 years’ hand-sewing experience, there isn’t a window treatment she doesn’t know and a curtain and blind style she hasn’t made.
Marcia is responsible for running Ellinis Interiors’ London workroom, training staff and maintaining quality and standards.
She is a perfectionist taught by the best at Albert E Chapmans, soft furnishers to Her Majesty the Queen.
Marcia is a talented seamstress who still gets a thrill out of knowing the finished look of a curtain and blind, created by her enviable hand-sewing skills, transforms a house into a home.
Sandra is our Senior Soft Furnishings Technician. She started sewing her dolls clothes at eight-years-old and rapidly progressed onto dressmaking for adults.
That all took a back seat when she discovered her natural ability to hand-sew curtains and blinds. Sandra joined us 10 years ago and she’s become our in-house soft-furnishings whizz, turning her skilled hand to anything that involves the making-up of cushions, valances and bedding.
She describes her work as therapeutic and a pleasure, as she never gets tired of the hand-made process of turning reams of fabric into stunning curtains and blinds.
As a child, Laz loved to knit, make stuffed toys, create collages, paint and draw. Today she loves designing bags in her spare time.
But luckily for us, Laz has devoted the majority of her artistic talents to Ellinis Interiors becoming one of our skilled soft-furnishings technicians over the last five years.
She is our Roman blinds hand-making and machining expert and holds the Ellinis Interiors record for making the most Roman blinds in one day.
Laz has an enthusiastic zest for her work and describes her job as relaxing and rewarding particularly because she knows her hand-made efforts make a difference.
Tom is our expert curtain and blinds fitter who brings immeasurable experience to every Ellinis Interiors project.
An invaluable member of our team, Tom learned his trade from his dad who has over 30 years in the business.
Tom has worked with us for over a decade and runs his own curtain and blinds hanging service alongside.
As our main site surveyor and installer Tom is our on-site representative. He knows what our customers expect and is always willing to go that extra mile to make it happen.
He brings quality craftsmanship to every job he undertakes and isn’t shy to admit he absolutely loves what he does as each day brings new and different challenges.
