Our Story

Having started and grown two successful interior design companies during the last 25 years, we are delighted to share our expertise online. th2Studio offers an edited collection of products from our secret trade suppliers, available to anyone looking to furnish their home. Many of the pieces are our own designs as we know what works. Purchase them individually or go for a whole room designed and curated by our team of experts and available at the click of a button.


Our success at Taylor Howes naturally led to expansion and in 2005 the “diffusion” arm, th2designs was born, enabling us to reach a wider audience. The vision was to design stylish and eye-catching homes with an affordable price tag and delivered in super quick time. th2designs has gone from strength to strength and now, 12 years on and with a team of over twenty based in a flourishing studio in Chelsea Harbour, th2designs work with leading private clients, property developers, landowners and hoteliers alike. It is the team at th2 who have worked hard to source beautiful, well priced products and to develop the th2studio range.

Taylor Howes

Our background goes right back to the early 90’s, when interior design was still an emerging industry. Founders Gail Taylor & Karen Howes both shared a passion for interiors and in 1991 they launched into business together. Sheila El Hadery joined soon after and as their design director was integral in helping the duo grow Taylor Howes Designs in to one of the UK’s leading super high-end design companies.

One of my greatest interior inspirations is travel, I am passionate about design and have a long term commitment to sourcing the very best from worldwide suppliers and to delivering great design, at great value, to our th2Studio customers. We only sell what we truly love and have carefully vetted every piece so that you can also buy an entire room secure in the knowledge that we have scaled everything to fit together perfectly. I hope that you will enjoy our selections in your homes.


We all dream of living in a beautifully designed space and I have always hoped to bring this dream to the widest market possible. For me, style has to be combined with comfort and function to ensure any space truly works but it should not be limited to the lucky few to enjoy. By launching our online arm we are able to reach out to those of you looking for an exceptional creative eye, years of experience in design, as well as just simply someone to guide you when making such a big investment furnishing your home.
