Tollgard Design Group Turns 15!

We are absolutely delighted to celebrate Tollgard Design Group turning 15.

15 years of answering questions of living …
of telling stories using the language of design …
of working with a truly talented and inspiring group of interior designers …
of working for some of the most wonderful clients in the world.

We want to say a huge thank you to our team and to our clients for this design journey. For the opportunities we have been given, and the amazing people we have met along the way.

Here are some of the milestone moments.

2005 – First ever Project

My first project completed when I was still working out of my attic, with Grace our miniature Schnauzer as my sidekick.  Fifteen years – and three-hundred projects later – I still love this one. 

2008 – First time on House & Garden’s list of 100 Leading Interior Designers

 The moment we found out we were on House and Garden’s Leading 100 list is still one of my all-time moments.  An honour and a joy to feature on it for nearly a decade. 

2009 – One of 3 (The others were Nina Campbell and Helen Green) Designers chosen by Jacqueline Duncan OBE graduating from Inchbald over its 50 years.

Jacqueline Duncan OBE and the Inchbald have played a pivotal role in shaping our company and I was absolutely delighted to be selected along with Helen Green and Nina Campbell to celebrate fifty years of design excellence.

2012 – First product designed – The Belle for Contardi

Our first foray into product design was for Contardi. The Belle was the result of my search for functional sculpture and there are now 50 of them hanging in the Bell and Whistle restaurant in the Nhow Hotel in East London.

2013 – Opening of Tollgard Showroom

In 2013 we opened the doors of the Staffan Tollgård Design Store overlooking the river at Grosvenor Waterside.  We made the decision to go ahead on Monique and my 10 year wedding anniversary … knowing we were signing on the dotted line for a 25 year lease. One of the best decisions in the last 15 for sure.

2014 – Design of the Red Thread Rug collection for JAB Anstoetz

The Red Thread rug collection for JAB offered the chance to explore a completely new medium.  We were incredibly proud when we won Best of the Best in IMM Cologne the year it launched.

2015 – Listed on Architectural Digest’s list of top 100 Interior Designers

Architectural Digest France paid us the most enormous compliment by including us on their list of the world’s leading designers. 

2017 – Landmark Projects – Danish Summerhouse, Jordanian Villa, Batmans Penthouse

These three landmark projects completed in the same year in three different countries. Each captures the connection of environment, architecture and client perfectly: three unique and vivid red threads.

2019 – Opening of Ceccotti Collezioni and Tollgard Showroom in Chelsea Harbour

Our partnership with Ceccotti Collezioni is something we take enormous pleasure in. They create the heirlooms of tomorrow, and opening the eponymous store in Chelsea Harbour was a very proud moment. To then be able to open our second Tollgard Showroom right next door made the year complete.
