Our Story

Established in 1995 by antiquarian Maryam Garahan in upmarket Middleburg, Virginia – an enclave of Washington, DC bearing a striking resemblance to the Cotswolds with its rich equestrian heritage, hunting traditions, and historic architectural charm - Eye on Design and Antiques has been a long-standing retailer of antique furnishings, fine art and decorative accessories.

Bringing the brand overseas to the UK is the vision of daughter and celebrated New York Interior Designer, Maneli Garahan Wilson, whom after twenty-five years living in Manhattan relocated to the charming Cotswolds marking the beginning of a new and exciting chapter.

Nestled in the picturesque town of Tetbury, Eye on Design and Antiques serves as a luxury home décor destination, interior design studio, and fabric and wallpaper showroom representing exclusive collections of delicate wallcoverings and richly patterned fabrics sourced from beloved, international textile houses. The shop houses a curated selection of objects – both old and new – by renowned artisans and designers from around the world in addition to offering one-of-a-kind hand-made decorative accessories, fine linens, glassware, unique table wares and antique furnishings.

This new iteration of Eye on Design and Antiques is the culmination of the mother and daughter duo’s lifelong dedication to creating harmonious and captivating interiors. The enchanting brick and mortar shop focuses on providing a remarkable experience that resonates with their shared dedication for the decorative arts and interior design.
