Glyn Goddard

DIRECTOR

Glyn runs the operations side of Furnish & Fettle – in his own words “I get stuff done”.

Having undertaken several large-scale property developments prior to leaving the corporate world to run Furnish & Fettle, Glyn has a thorough understanding of the importance of project management and co-ordination.

He has built up a good working relationship with a wide range of different suppliers and trusted trades people that can be pulled in to support the in-house installations team, enabling a smooth design journey right through to sign off.

Eleanor Goddard, director of Furnish & Fettle

Eleanor Goddard

DIRECTOR

Eleanor’s journey in design traces back to her Saturday job at the iconic Laura Ashley. 

This formative experience ignited her lifelong love affair with fabrics and the world of interiors, paving her future to later setting up Furnish & Fettle in 2016 with husband Glyn. Eleanor passionately supports the design team, fostering an environment of creativity and innovation where every designer can flourish.

Using her marketing expertise, she also collaborates with the corporate clients to create luxury spaces and deliver something special, offering both impact and tangible business results.

Georgie Smith

HEAD OF DESIGN

From a long line of family architects, builders and surveyors, Georgie discovered her own passion for property and undertook a degree in Interior & Architectural Design in Leeds.

Having now worked in the industry for over 8 years, Georgie has gained valuable first-hand knowledge on all aspects of high-end interior design projects.

Georgie joined the Furnish & Fettle team in 2021 and was not shy to be thrown straight into managing the large-scale projects.  Two years later, and she has a loyal following with many clients recommending her to family and friends.

Anna Urban

INTERIOR DESIGNER &
SHOWROOM MANAGER

Full of energy and with a desire to delight every client, Anna’s loyal following love working with her.

Anna supports each client to push them to their limits with a wide understanding on well-balanced schemes.

Prior to joining Furnish & Fettle Anna has had exposure in various creative fields, including fashion and make-up artistry which has benchmarked her popular creative flare.

With Anna’s desire to constantly advance her career, she has recently completed her AIM qualification Level 3 Diploma in Professional Interior Design Skills.

Annabel Stewart

INTERIOR DESIGNER

Annabel completed her degree in Product Design at the Northumbria University before recognising that her true passion lies in Interior Design.

Before joining Furnish & Fettle in early 2022, Annabel gained a strong set of technical design skills through working in both commercial interior design and furniture design throughout her degree.

Working alongside the experienced team, Annabel has quickly developed her skills and has already completed several comprehensive projects with delighted clients on completion.

Julianne Wood

INTERIOR DESIGNER

Julianne is one of the newer members of the team, joining in September 2023.

Julianne has a solid depth of knowledge having both a degree in Textiles & Surface Pattern, and then a second degree in Interior Design. She also has over 9 years’ experience of working within the world of residential design projects.

Julianne’s interiors’ career began working for a well-known national brand offering a “one stop shop” home design service. Followed by a significant role specialising in expert lighting design.

Lucy Dufton

INTERIOR DESIGNER

Lucy joined the Furnish & Fettle team in 2018 and having worked with some of the top designers in the area prior to this, she has been instrumental in developing the full concept to completion service that Furnish & Fettle now offer for their clients.

Lucy also achieved a first-class honours degree in Interior Architecture, meaning she has both the passion, understanding and foresight to work on the more challenging, larger- scaled design projects that some of our clients feel overwhelmed with.

Adam Hickinbottom

SENIOR INTERIOR DESIGN ASSISTANT

Adam, who has a degree in Fashion Design and an NDA diploma in Interior Design, joined the team from James Brindley in 2017.

Adam loyally works alongside the design team supporting them on projects with his excellent knowledge of the extensive fabric library and sourcing expertise, as well as running his own local Wetherby projects.

Adam is a welcoming, well-known face to long-standing customers and a minor celebrity after his renowned appearance on “A Great Yorkshire Christmas” featuring his magnificent Christmas window display on Channel 5.

Ellie Dundass

INTERIOR DESIGN ASSISTANT

Ellie is currently studying for a degree in Interior Architecture & Design at York St. John’s University and initially came to Furnish & Fettle for work experience halfway through 2023.

Instantly recognising that Ellie was a dedicated, diligent, and fun team player, Ellie was quickly hired as a part time member whilst she works through her university studies.

Her adaptable approach sees Ellie liaising throughout various day to day tasks within both of the showrooms.

Ian Beal

INSTALLATIONS MANAGER

Ian is the linchpin in the team at Furnish & Fettle with a composed and positive mindset with every task in hand.

Having joined the team after running his own business in East Yorkshire for several years, he brought with him a wealth of hands-on knowledge within the high-end interiors market.

He is a highly valuable resource of technical expertise for the team and clients. Ian’s practical involvement working on complex projects throughout both the UK and overseas, means that there is little he has not seen or done.

Paul Minns

INSTALLER

Bio coming soon…

Darcy Beal

INSTALLATIONS ASSISTANT

As his surname (and similar looks!) would suggest Darcy is the son of Installations Manager, Ian.  Initially being co-opted to help his dad when in need of an extra pair of hands, Darcy has eagerly become an official team member, working part time alongside his studies.

No task is too much trouble for Darcy. He remains happy to help with any difficult installation responsibilities that come his way, giving Ian a more timely and smoother process on installation day.

Ollie Goddard

SHOWROOM & INSTALLATIONS
ASSISTANT

Having grown up within the family business, Ollie has been immersed in the world of interior design since his early years. He has gained invaluable experience and knowledge about the industry and the intricacies involved to deliver on the finer details within each project.

In addition to his work with the installations team, Ollie can often be found assisting clients in the showrooms where he excels in product knowledge and excellent customer service skills.

Charlotte Chambers

OFFICE MANAGER

Charlotte has the unenviable task of keeping everything in the busy office running smoothly, which, when working with a team of creatives can be quite a challenge.

Charlotte has a well-established background in essential administrative roles. Having previously run her own business, Charlotte keeps Furnish & Fettle’s “back of house” in check with a good understanding of the administrate systems and processes required to deliver the very best service to their clients.

Dougal Doggins

HEAD OF WELCOMING
COMMITTEE

As a pedigree black Labrador with an impressive family tree, Dougal’s career should have been as a working gun dog.
However, with a name like Dougal and not being keen on loud bangs, Dougal reconsidered his future career choice.

Dougal’s early years were spent working alongside his mum Eleanor while she ran her small curtain and blind making business. It was here he developed a clear role for himself providing key stress relief, a role which he has expanded on successfully since joining the team at Furnish & Fettle.
