All about Claire Swindale … aka Swin! Founder and Creative.
I’m continually inspired by living and working in London.
With boundless energy I’ve built a reputation for stylish, colourful, observational and imaginative art and design.
My signature style is structured yet whimsical, timeless yet edgy. Oozes British humour, is ‘fabulously fearless’, subtle yet strong.
2014 saw the launch of a wonderful collection of Limited Edition luxurious Silk Scarves created using some of my London photography. They are simply beautiful pieces with a sense of fun, a story and/or emotion!
I launched my Interior Design collections at ICFF (International Contemporary Furniture Fair) in New York in 2015, with my Wallpaper, Fabric and Cushion designs. And have returned every year since. Its a lot of fun and very successful!
2017 saw the launch of my ‘No Sex Please, We’re British’ collection, provoking very British loud verbal ‘Ohhh’s’ & ‘Arrrs’ in the Ben Oakley Gallery, London. A great reaction.
This year BBespoke Interiors and Claire Swindale are collaborating on Furniture collections, sailing under the flag ‘Organised Chaos’. Which just about sums up the vision of our time designing and making the pieces.
It’s paramount that all my work is of high quality, British made, and my own designs. I’m continually flying our fabulous British Flag.

“You find no man, at all intellectual, who is willing to leave London. No Sir, when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life, for there is in London all that life can afford.” Samuel Johnson
Ben of the Ben Oakley Gallery: “After knowing & working with Swin for many years I can genuinely say she is a thoroughly trustworthy conscientious creative soul and a pleasure to be around. & she didn’t even pay me to say that!!”
“This woman is passionate about her designs, rather wonderfully crazy. We love the drag queen, you feel like you want to bite it!!!” Julia Johnson (Pickwick Papers)
…a feature in The Resident Guide Blackheath 2017.
And a mention in San Francisco Magazine, June 2017. Listed as ‘a Claire Swindale pillow. She’s everything that’s right about English design; a little punk rock, a little in-your-face, not afraid of color, and always an element of taking the piss‘.
The latest piece on my style and design is on the Apartment Therapy website. Fun read.
