About

No Straight Lines, by K&H Design, offers an array of exquisitely designed and hand-crafted furniture pieces & accessories, flatweave stair runners & rugs and individual items sourced through relationships with specialist dealers and makers.

Headed by Katie Glaister, K&H Design is well known for delivering highly personalised interior design solutions for private clients.  Designing bespoke furniture, ideal for a particular environment or function, is a natural extension of this service.  With design integrity, we take historical references which we respectfully re-interpret or fuse. Our furniture pieces are not faddish, indeed they could have been in a family forever and, with modern interventions, are destined to become future heirlooms.

It is an enormous privilege to be working with some of Britain’s finest cabinet makers and craftsmen.  We are proud that each piece is handcrafted in Britain.

Continuing the theme of ‘personalisation’, we designed our first flat weave stair runner for a fabulous client in Notting Hill.  We wanted to create something which was simply not available in the market place and which embraced our shared joy of blending colour and pattern.

Following the positive response to the first design, we set about carefully creating two collections, in praise of:

Collection 1: Heritage Textiles

Collection 2: The Earth

With an unheard-of 30 metres of non-repeat pattern you can choose the section you love most for your flight of stairs, creating something totally unique to you.

We believe that good design stems from a robust appreciation of design and the history of style.  It is about tapping into that authoritative pool of design knowledge and looking to the future.  It is about creative dialogue and challenging ideas.  It has an energy, a degree of developmental flexibility and conviction. It means arriving at something unique which sits comfortably in its new context.

There are no straight lines on this journey.
