Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen and ITV visit Camel & Yak

After we had just about got over the wirl wind effects of last weeks adventure with ITV’s House Gift, we were extatic to have ITV visit to film for another television programme. They were so impressed with our product range that the great man himself, Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen, graced our store. After the staff managed to mop up the drool off the floor, they helped with his decission to purchase our one of a kind jeans covered egg chair.
Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen has established himself as one of the UK’s most easily identified interior designers, and our favourite television dandy. He stormed onto our TV screens back in 1996 with his role as the flamboyant and super-confident designer on the hit BBC series Changing Rooms. Since then he’s fronted a plethora of home design shows, and is currently the resident interior design expert on ITV1’s This Morning, regularly giving us the benefit of his design wisdom.
Off screen, Laurence runs a range of successful homeware products and has his own interior design practice in Cirencester, providing bespoke design services for luxury homes, offices, bars and retailers.
We will keep you updated when the episode is telivised.
