Clare Shine, CEO and Director of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership
"The team at Eve Waldron Design brought enthusiasm and creativity to our fast-paced project - a flagship retrofit for Cambridge. Their expertise has helped us embrace new ideas and opportunities for the greatest possible impact in this inspirational space dedicated to sustainability and inclusion."
Anselm Barker, Deputy Principal, Tring Park School for the Performing Arts
“It was a pleasure working with Eve Waldron Design as part of Tring Park School’s recently completed building project. Eve Waldron designed and supplied all of the furniture and window treatments for Elizabeth House. This was a complicated brief as it encompassed dormitory and common room furniture for a 70-bed boarding house as well as for six teaching spaces in the lower ground floor. Eve and her team were a pleasure to work with and they were quick to take on board any views from either the architect or the school in order to create the right look and produce furniture that was sturdy yet stylish. We are delighted with the result and the feedback from pupils, parents and staff has been overwhelmingly positive. Thank you, Eve and her team!”
Oliver & Ben Wigg, Directors, Bowson Leeway
“We are delighted to be working with Eve Waldron Design on the interiors of several luxury homes for Bowson-Leeway, including two recently completed homes for sale in Barton. They fully understood our brief and worked very well alongside the architect, to achieve a result that has given our properties the competitive edge we want.
We were confident to let them use their design initiative, and their in-depth product knowledge and experience proved indispensable. They delivered on time and on-budget, and were always helpful and understanding of the demands of a large commercial project.
We have subsequently appointed EWD to carry out further projects for us, which will be spread out across the next few years.”
Rob Sprawson, Chief Financial Officer, Cambridge Innovation Capital
"It was important for us to make the right impression to our stakeholders and we felt the quality of our office needed to match the value of our brand. We value the wellbeing of our staff, and in a competitive job market making an effort to improve the workplace works in attracting and retaining great staff.
It was a pleasure working with the EWD team. They listened carefully to our brief and made great suggestions for improvements. They put together a full package for tender, and then worked with us to select a very good installation team. They conscientiously managed the project on site for us – making sure everything came out as planned. This saved us valuable time. We were confident we achieved good value and are really pleased with the results. I would not hesitate to recommend them."
James Hopkins, Executive Chairman, Hopkins Homes
“We have worked with Eve for over 20 years. She designed our own offices, which still look timeless; they effectively combine a contemporary aesthetic within a traditional envelope. Eve’s designs help to give us a competitive edge. She project manages her work professionally and delivers on time and on budget.”
Christine Houghton, Domestic Bursar, Lucy Cavendish College
"I would like you thank you very much for your input in design and furnishings for refurbishment for student areas at Lucy Cavendish, common room , bar and conservatory.
The area was transformed it is much more contemporary and welcoming. It is light and airy now, and the students can use it in a very flexible way. Thank you for completing the full project in time for our new arrivals and our returning students. We have had nothing but compliments the design and colours of furniture chosen is just perfect. It was a pleasure working with you and your team and I do hope we have an opportunity to work together again."
Robert Gardiner, Bursar, Murray Edwards College Cambridge
"Eve Waldron Design was asked by the College to tender for the designs for some limited budget improvements to the interior design of some interesting, if challenging, Sixties rooms.
Eve’s ideas in response to the environment held immediate and unanimous appeal for the committee. The final designs responded both to the architectural ethos and epoc of the rooms while still being highly innovative – and very striking. In particular the designs for soft furnishings, including some remarkable rugs, have been highly successful and respond particularly well to major pieces in the College’s art collection by Gillian Ayres and Bridget Riley."
Wendy Evans, Domestic Bursar, Newnham College Cambridge
“The buttery and meeting rooms that Eve Waldron furnished for us work very well. It is now four years old and still looks brand new. The house committee found it very easy to work with Eve, she understood the brief and her furniture brings the room together brilliantly.”
Charles Lloyd, Director, Head of Office, Savills Mayfair and Marylebone
“Eve Waldron’s Portman Tower flats sold very well, far better than anything else in the block. They were dressed and furnished properly which helped the sales enormously.”
Sir William Atkinson MA, FRSA, Executive Headteacher, The Phoenix Canberra School Federation
“I am delighted with the new Post 16 Centre, it has exceeded all my expectations! The collaborative process between the staff, students and design team helped to widen the students’ perspectives, increase their expectations and now with the new Post 16 Centre finished they are able to see their aspirations realized.”
Allison Pearson, Author and Daily Telegraph columnist
“Eve Waldron has done a number of projects for me. She has a superb eye and an attention to detail which is second to none. Eve’s flair for design enables her to capture the spirit of a place whilst bringing a chic, modern sensibility to any room. I would not hesitate to recommend her work”.
Private Resident, Cambridge
"Eve and her team really understood the importance of working with us to develop the final scheme. Even though we had some initial ideas, they really challenged us and we love the result. Having someone to manage the whole project from concept to execution was incredible and took the stress out of it for us - leaving us with all the best bits of the design process! They worked hard to source affordable pieces that were practical and comfortable."
Garry McMillan, Director of Facilities & Development, The Phoenix School
“We enjoyed working with Eve on the FF & E for the project. From her initial presentations to her well organised trip around the showrooms with both staff and students, the whole process went smoothly and professionally. Her inspired contribution is evident.”
Nicholas Robinson, Headmaster, King’s College School Cambridge
“It was a pleasure to work with Eve Waldron and I was extremely impressed by the efficient and most helpful service we received. The furniture that has been provided for our new Library and Classrooms has been a huge success. We are delighted!”
