Behind Ampersand


I was born and brought up in England but I was conquered by the light, the architecture of the landscapes, buildings and color, the beauty of Provence.


Having always loved to create, I studied plastic arts and design to evolve in interior architecture.


Having run an interior design company for 15 years in the Alpes Maritimes, I tired of designing homes using furniture from multinational companies where their image is more important than the desires and personal tastes of each client.


So a new adventure began, I decided to settle in the Var and create my company with the purchase of a loft, workshop in Lorgues using the concept of Slow design.


I was inspired by this village, its market and the fact that it is a region that remains authentic, home to artistes and creators of all sorts.


My paint brushes, upholstery tools, pensils and paper are now my everyday tools to create my designs to the exacting tastes and needs of my clients.


I look forward to meeting you


Kind regards

Nicola Hawkins
