our story

There’s a certain joy that comes from finding the most perfect interior wares; an item so full of character that it speaks to your soul, or a piece which exquisitely demonstrates skilled artistry that has been perfected over generations.

These are the pieces, which have the ability to transform interiors, to deliver the unique and to capture the personality and story woven through the very fibres of the lands in which they originate. 

A collaboration between Noël Coughlan of NC Interiors and Jimmy Elkington, NC Studio was born from the couple’s passion for meaningful, thoughtful and quality design, travel and adventure, and a yearning to immerse themselves in cultures that speak true to the rich history and traditions of far-away destinations.

“NC Studio wares are designed with a lifetime in mind. They are unique, artfully-made pieces to be treasured for years to come.”

NC Studio is a carefully curated, handpicked selection of one-of-a-kind pieces from around the globe, each with its own story.

Teamed with Noël’s keen eye for design and beautiful things and Jimmy’s genuine, down to earth approach to business, the pairs philosophy ensures every NC Studio piece has been selected for its longevity, timeless design and ability to create joy in the home.

“I have always loved the hunt of searching through bazaars, markets and medinas for unique and interesting finds that tell the tale of their maker – I enjoy the process, the excitement and the moment you find something truly special!” Noël Coughlan.

It is this merging of talents which ensures NC Studio delivers a considered collection of original wares that are not only catered to a unique design aesthetic, but that also help support sustainable practices and traditional methods, while honouring not only the historical narrative of each piece, but the artisans behind them.

Selected with a lifetime in mind rather than a mere moment.
