Hello, welcome to Lomas&Lomas. This is us, Garry & Sharon, Mr & Mrs, he loves photography and I love interiors. We always wanted to escape to the country and start our own creative business, so leaving the rat race behind in 2015 we moved from Manchester to Derbyshire, turned our passions into our business and never looked back.
We take our inspiration from the natural world, creating surface patterns & designs which begin life as images captured by Garry. Together we develop a concept, patterns & colours. Sharon then turns the designs into handmade cushions & lampshades, kitchen & homeware accessories.
Our business is based in the beautiful village of Hayfield, at the foot of Kinder Scout, right on the edge of the Peak District National Park. Our work is heavily influenced by the beauty of the local landscape & its wildlife residents. All products are printed in the UK and most are handmade in the studio or as local as possible.
In August 2015 we opened the doors to our gallery and interiors store at The Old Butchers Shop in Hayfield. The gallery showcases Garry's photography and stocks our handmade interiors & homewares. We frequently stock a small specially
selected range of designer/makers who create beautiful handmade wares from across the UK.
In July 2016 we were shortlisted for the Country Homes & Interiors "My Country Business Awards" for best Fabric & wallpaper Designers.
In October 2017 Sharon Lomas was "Highly Commended" by the judges in the Forward Ladies "Women in Business Awards" in the best Start Up category.
In November 2017 we were finalists in the Northern Design Awards, in the category of "Best Designer Maker"
In June 2018 we were named as finalists in The Rural Business Awards for Best Rural Retail Business (Midlands region). These National awards recognise and celebrate the achievements of businesses who helps shape the rural economy & way of life.
Thanks for reading
Sharon & Garry
