The idea of manufacturing one’s own designs began when Angela Nichol our partner and interior designer started a hardwood furniture manufacturing company in 2007. Donald Palmer joined forces to help build and manage the operations of the company and so Palmer Nichol Interiors was born in 2008. In 2009 Mark Solomon joined to help strengthen the manufacturing division and we were then able to diversify and offer a full spectrum shopfitting service to our clients. The three partners have over 60 years combined experience in the interior and furniture industry.
With this combination and experienced team, we are able to offer a service to our clients that is professional, creative, reliable and cost effective. We cover all aspects, from interior design, shopfitting, to designing pieces of furniture which are manufactured at our factory to the clients exact needs. We have recently started an art collection under licence by Lea Hardwick which can be viewed on our website. We specialise in the hospitality and corporate industry where our advise is sound and our products unique. We are proudly a majority black owned business and our products are manufactured in house locally. We follow the employment equity guidelines and have projects in place to uplift aspiring young interior designers and other businesses related to our trades.
