The influential interior designer looks ahead to a year of new collections and working with British craftsmen

Nina Campbell is one of the world’s most respected and influential interior designers with a company founded over 50 years ago. Renowned for her contagious wit and brilliant sense of style, her designs appeal to both young and old, and sit well in both contemporary and traditional interiors. Her list of clients and design expertise is unparalleled. Building on the success of her interior design work, Nina was able to expand the business by opening a design studio, retail shop and furniture showroom as well as designing her own signature products across accessories, wallpaper, fabrics and furniture. The company is proud to be family run: first Nina’s son Max Konig joined in 1999 as Managing Director, then, a decade later, Nina’s daughter Alice Deen took on the role of Head of Communications.

The upcoming year looks set to be thrilling for the business, with collections in fabrics and wallpaper on the horizon as well as brand new furniture and several exciting collaborations. Nina’s latest book will also be gracing bookshelves from spring 2023, based on the interior design of a multi-functional house in Maine which has everything from a separate pool house for parties to a tennis pavilion.


‘What we have been focusing on more and more as a brand, as have many others, is creating and commissioning British-made products as much as possible,’ says Nina. ‘When working all over the world as we are on interior design projects, we love using local craftspeople to add an element of the surrounding environment. It’s amazing what you can find and what incredibly interesting, beautiful and creative pieces are being made in all sorts of pockets of the world.’


This year, Nina Campbell Ltd has restarted the antiques side to the business and there is now a small selection of pieces available in the Walton Street shop. ‘I love antiques and always try to use them in jobs; I love the history and the individuality they can bring – whether to an interior or a table or a shelf,’ explains Nina.


On the interiors side of the business, 2022/23 is already proving to be busier than ever, with a number of exciting jobs, both residential and commercial, home and afar. ‘We are working a lot in various parts of the States as well as Jordan and we also have some lovely jobs in England, which makes a nice change. They are all rather different which is exciting.’

Although the pandemic curbed Nina’s travel, it has resulted in the business becoming more time efficient. ‘It is, however, amazing to be able to visit sites, install in real life and see clients face to face which is something I really missed,’ she continues. ‘These relationships are so important to me when decorating. The pandemic has instilled a practice of thinking flexibly, problem solving and working around unforeseeable situations. I feel London is bouncing back and I am really thrilled by what the next few years have in store for our brand.’
