Meet the team
Liv – Director and Creative Genius
Liv is the Creative Director of the business, chief buyer and has a fabulous eye for trends. Originally from Bergen in Norway, her style influence can be seen throughout the shop.
Liv designed our lovely website and provides creative guidance and strategy across all projects. Momma to Betty (our resident pooch) Liv loves all dogs, when she’s not in the office, she’s talking to everybody’s dog on the shop floor.
MC – Managing Director and Operations Mastermind
Michael is Liv’s husband and co-founder of the business. He is the man who makes everything work from admin and payments to warehousing and security. With a background in construction, MC is the guy to turn to for big in-store builds, and his knowledge of furniture is unrivalled. You’ll have met MC if you’ve ever ordered furniture from us – he drives the van, delivers to customers homes (with a big smile) and constructs your furniture too! MC loves Paul Weller, football and thinks there is nothing worse than flat beer!
Kate – Store Manager and Styling Sensation
Kate is our Store Manager, who joined the team back in 2013 from a background in Visual Merchandising. Day to day, Kate can be found leading the team, up a ladder in the windows (her favourite place to be!) or on the shop floor merchandising like a ninja! Championing customer service, and total team cheerleader, Kate works to keep a happy shop. When she’s not in store, or delivering furniture to customer’s homes, Kate also joins Liv and Michael on buying trips and works to bring fresh trends through to the shop floor. Kate loves cats, a chilly Sauvignon Blanc and British Country Music.
Gina – Assistant Manager and Construction Queen
Gina is our Northern powerhouse. She is originally from North Yorkshire, and after joining the team in 2014 now calls Birmingham her ‘home from home’. Gina’s background is in Theatre and Events Design, so is often the creative force behind big instore builds and installations. You’ll quite often find her up some ladders, with a selection of faux florals in one hand and a drill in the other, adding a splash of drama! If not in the shop Gina is likely to be with MC on delivery to customer’s homes and sourcing new materials for the next big exciting make-over. Gina loves making (and drinking) gin, hot yoga and travelling.
Jess – Superstar Supervisor and Web-Sales Wiz
Jess is the newest recruit in LIV’s HQ and has immediately felt like one of the family. Originally from Solihull, Jess studied Interior Architecture and Design at Leeds Beckett University. She immediately joined our team on her return, bringing with her all her wonderful creativity and talent. Recognised as the one with hair so long even Rapunzel would envy and always first to be co-ordinating customer orders and web sales all with apparent ease. Jess loves making things with resin and dried flowers, drawing digital portraits and often found to be spending her weekends travelling with friends in her pride and joy “Peggy” – a cherry red fiat 500.
Betty – Shih-Poo and Top Dog
Betty has recently turned 5! She absolutely LOVES a fuss and walks to work with Liv quite regularly. She also LOVES to be out on the shop floor at the end of the day, so she can defend us from all who dare to walk past.
So there we have it . . .our little team! Make sure you come and say “Hi!” to us next time you’re in store!
