Sometimes we can’t truly believe this day has come, the opening of Pad Deco, our first store, woohoo! What an emotional journey too. Not that we ever doubted we could get here but more a case of when you have dreamed of something for so long and then you find yourself standing there seeing it, come to life before your eyes, it’s an incredible feeling.  As an Interior Designer, I always get this overwhelming sense of pride when I see a project come to an end and see the reaction on my clients face.  But this feeling was greater somehow, maybe its because this time it was way more personal.


We have been open a couple of weeks now and the wonderful team we have put together have quickly found their feet.  Our store is a space that we want customers to feel comfortable in and feel happy to explore the glorious pieces that we have on offer. Our design hub also offers our customers the chance to pick the brains of our in house design team to and ask questions and get advice and tips.  We know this is a different way of thinking, as most businesses only want to sell to you where as we want to educate as well. So in a sense our store is already becoming a ‘hub’ and so far we have plenty of ‘Cardiff Creatives’ as well as customers who want some design know how.

Now we have opened our doors, our next challenge is to spread the word, so we have two events planned within the next few weeks.  We will give you more details on these soon.  But if you haven’t had time to come along for a visit, let us take you for a quick tour……..

Our PAD Deco design team, ready to help and guide you through all your design and interior needs.


The have a wealth of fabric and wallpaper books to inspire your imagination.


Within the store we have a projector showing classic films from Cinema Paradiso to High Society, it has been a massive hit.  I wonder which one we will be screening when you arrive?


We have a live twitter feed in store, and we encourage all our visitors to tweet and even take a selfie.  It’s a really fun way to interact with everyone.


But what about the products themselves?  Well here is a small look, but as for the rest, you will just have come and discover for yourself!


We look forward to seeing you soon.
