It’s funny how life leads me to all kind of inspirational women – the more I talk, think about the FAB WMN project, the more it manifests into real connections and collaborations.
This time I’m introducing Lindsay, who is the the Senior Project Manager at Les Manufactures Catry in London. We’ve met through work, our showrooms are opposite each other and I asked her about this interview after a networking/marketing event for Chelsea Cross.
My very first impression of Lindsay was energy. She seems to have a lot of it – btw, she cycles to work every day, something that is admirable on its own already. And then enthusiasm. The way she talks about her work, her life, her plans – yet another woman you’d want to be around to keep your good vibes at level.
Lindsay is not only a project manager, but also a yin yoga teacher (she spent one month in India last year), she takes tango classes (she invited me to try it and I swear I will), does screen printing and she’s put generous amount of effort into growing Chelsea Cross, holding the showrooms of Fulham Road together.
So, here’s what Lindsay reveals about herself:
- How would you describe your job at Les Manufactures Catry?
My job at Les Manufactures Catry is varied and interesting. I have a background in textile design, so the products that we sell interest me hugely. The clients that we have visiting are a mix of designers and people creating their homes. I love talking to them about their plans and helping them make decisions.
- What are your favourite design spots in London?
My favourite design spots in London are Marylebone, the high street is a great place to explore with a mix of fashion and home stores. The original Daunt books is there too, which is a great place to kill time and find inspiring reads. I love Chelsea too, with lots of Interior showrooms and unusual stores, Patrick Mavros is a favourite with fantastic mix of African inspired product. The Museums are very close too which I love.
