Ashby Interiors Limited is run by Martin and Rachel Ashby. We are based in Aston on Trent which is a village on the outskirts of Derby.
Previously, Rachel worked full time as a PA in the aerospace industry before finishing to start Ashby Interiors in May 2014. She now works full time on the running of all aspects of the business and has an eye for quirky decorative items.
Martin is a chartered engineer and still works full time in the Aerospace industry. With a passion for antique and vintage lighting, Martin tenaciously sources and restores lighting which can then be sold ready to install.
With both of us having our roots in the aerospace industry it was only a matter of time before we started designing interiors using aerospace salvage… Take a look at our exciting range on the Ashby Aero page to appreciate how aerospace components can be a work of art.
Our vintage products have deliberately been minimally restored. We like to see the patina of a piece, the flaking paint and dull brass. We deliberately choose items which are a little different – quirky conversation pieces are what we like best! If we can share with you information on the history of the item and its provenance, we will do this in our descriptions because we know that you love that!
We are an on line shop who pride ourselves in offering old fashioned service. If you have any questions about an item or our products in general we encourage you to contact us. We will happily discuss your requirements, send you additional photos or arrange for you to come and view by appointment.
