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 designs.
My signature style is structured yet whimsical, timeless yet edgy. Oozes British humour, is ‘fabulously fearless’, subtle yet strong.
To complete the picture I started creating Statement, Revived Vintage and New furniture, some using my own Fabric designs.
It’s paramount that all my work is of high quality, with all elements made in Britain. I’m continually flying our fabulous Flag.
My latest project is my Book. My first book. It’s a book full of colour and emotion. Inadvertently created during lockdown, developed as a keepsake of this unusual time. To place your order and for full details see ‘Not Afraid of Colour‘. I will be launching this on 21 May at the Ben Oakley Gallery. Please come along if you can.

“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)

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.From
