After a successful career in advertising, Rowland Leach decided to swap Soho for Sussex. Together with his wife Mary, they bought a beautiful country home near Chichester called West Stoke House, which was to become one of the finest, Michelin award winning hotels and restaurants in the area. For 10 years, West Stoke House offered guests an extraordinary restaurant with beautiful, stylish rooms set on the edge of the South Downs. Before they opened for business, they spent a year restoring and decorating the house in their chic yet rustic, country style; a process which cemented their passion for interior design and their love of french antiques.
Since then, the Rowland and Mary have continued to design venues and establishments across the south coast, all the while sourcing extraordinary antiques from Europe. French Loft, the name given to their interior design and antique furniture business, has developed a customer base who know what to expect from their stunning collections, understated and organic elegance.
