Lauren Rae

Graduate Designer

Lauren is a hugely passionate and energetic young designer. Living and growing up in Cape Town, Lauren had her sights on London from a young age, seeing it as the centre for interior design and creativity. Fervent in her desire to take an early interest in art and design and build it into a career, Lauren took the bold step of flying to London to undertake two weeks work experience at Taylor Howes whilst studying. Upon completion of her work experience Lauren returned to Cape Town to finish her course and latterly, joined the Taylor Howes team as Junior Designer.

Growing up by the Ocean in South Africa Lauren draws inspiration from the natural world in her designs, she is a champion of the biophilia interior trend, mixing raw-natural materials and luxurious finishes to create concepts rooted in the natural world, but entirely appropriate and befitting of luxury living. Surf instructor and expert kite surfer she fosters a love for the environment and is a keen conservationist.
