A large proportion of work is for existing clients who return whenever or wherever they move. The company's director, Karin Verzariu, a BIID Registered Interior Designer®, has over 30 years' experience in the field of interior design, from homes to corporate headquarters. Karin and her team at Key Interiors create contemporary as well as traditional interiors, and also enjoy combining various design periods.

Key Interiors work on projects of all sizes and styles. The company offers a full design, tender and project management service and can advise on the purchase and display of antiques and works of art. Environmental sustainability and energy efficiencies are important elements within the design process. The company's friendly and accessible approach to clients, imaginative interpretation of their wishes and attention to every detail ensures complete satisfaction. The team oversee the execution of projects by specialists and highly skilled cabinet-makers. Environmental sustainability and energy efficiencies are being considered as much as the originality and practicality of the design.

The company also welcomes inquiries from architects, managing agents, developers and surveyors and will assist with all interior design.

Key Interiors produce bespoke designs realised by highly skilled craftsmen, cabinet makers and contractors. The team will design unique pieces to suit clients' specific requirements and also advise on the purchase of antiques and works of art. The company is adept at creating functional and practical spaces without any loss of aesthetics. They produce drawings and colour schemes to make all plans and designs easily comprehensible to clients.

Black & Key is the showcase for the company's collection of luxurious furniture and accessories. All pieces are meticulously hand-made in the UK in beautiful veneers and finishes, with a variety of contrasting inlays and unique details. The collection can be customised to suit all design wishes.

Karin herself has lectured on interior design in London, Beijing and Moscow. A previous Director of the British Institute of Interior Design, she also acts on the Institute's interview panel for new membership.
