Westcot House was established in 2013 and has grown from a fledgling cottage industry into a successful business with projects featured in the likes of House & Garden magazine. Former magazine editor Tor Saer, who owns and runs the business, began the business making cushions, doorstops, aprons and memo boards for Christmas Fairs and curtains for friends when her children were in prep school. She lived at that time in a house called Westcot House in Oxfordshire where the business grew from strength to strength.
Today Tor and her team offer exquisitely finished, bespoke handmade furnishings to clients in London and the home counties. Tor works with a select group of incredibly talented makers and workshops to produce all furnishings using traditional methods from seamstresses who sew every stitch by hand to upholsterers, fitters and cabinet makers. All are highly skilled in their area of expertise and place huge importance on attention to detail and Tor takes great pride in being able to support the continuance of a tradition of craftsmanship.
