With many designers, their sense of style, imagination and personality continue throughout every area of their lives, and nowhere is this reflected more clearly than in their homes – Esther’s home is a wonderful example of this. This month we were thrilled to have an article in the Guardian’s ‘Observer Interiors’ that featured the Malt House, the home Esther and Paul have lovingly renovated here in Wirksworth. Read the article to see a behind-the-scenes snapshot of Esther’s life outside of Curiousa & Curiousa, and an insight to the style, tastes and principles that her work stems from.
Not all of the photographs taken on the day were able to get into the article but we are so pleased with them that we decided to share some of the unseen ones here, including images of Esther and Paul’s other business ‘The Northern Light Cinema’ situated on the ground floor of the Malthouse. Scroll down to see them.

A sight yet unseen – here’s a sneak peek of ‘Cocoon’ – a light featuring brass and walnut fittings due to be launched this year. Keep an eye on our social media and newsletter for the official launch. The mural is by Esther and Paul’s son, Gabriel Carr, and the red wire chair is from Bright Potato.
