Paling's of Lowdham has recently updated their shop and van signs using bright, stylish and modern livery.

"The new branding reflects much more closely the type of modernism, which is now the staple of our work," explained Stirl Paling. "We still do traditional jobs, of course, but 90% would be now described as modern. It's a very exciting time, with many clients now asking for the 'Wow factor' in their soft furnishings."

Steve Paling's daughter Charlotte has also recently joined the business. As a fabric designer by trade, with over 10 years experience in the industry, after having her daughter last year, she decided to join the family business rather than regularly having to travel to the Far East.

"We are sure Charlotte will be a great asset to us and all of our clients," continued Stirl. "She is also currently working towards her interior design qualification and this will enable us to expand our offering in interior design consultancy, which we are all excited about."
