Flora Soames

By 30th August 2023Speakers-2023

Acclaimed British interior designer Flora Soames founded her eponymous firm in 2009 and launched a celebrated collection of fabrics and wallpapers in 2019. Informed by her background in art and furniture, her style exudes the traditional charm of English country homes while incorporating modern, original touches that are comfortable and design-led. This embrace of old and new—along with Soames’s passion for collecting, heritage, colour, and pattern—has resulted in an impressive portfolio of projects in the UK and beyond.

Her first book The One Day Box: A Life-Changing Love of Home has been published by Rizzoli this September. Inspired by the concept of a One Day Box—a place, real or imaginary, where we store fragments of our past that spark a feeling of connection, in it, she presents her reflections on the concept of home, and explores the sentiments evoked by certain objects during seminal moments in her life. The Great Granddaughter of Winston Churchill, she sits on the council of the Churchill Fellowship.
