Customer review: “As I walk from room to room in my home I am constantly reminded that when you buy quality, it stays with you. I was one of the first customers of Ampersand Interiors some ten years ago, so I feel it is fitting that I am writing about this company. Those of you who have shopped there will know that Ampersand is only the name of the company and the heart is in the form of Glen Young & Andreas Pavlou.”
A little bit of history on the men behind the design:
This year Ampersand interiors will be celebrating ten years in business, owners Glen and Andreas have seen many changes, they have had to adjust quickly to the ups and downs of the good and bad years here in Paphos.
Just over ten years ago Glen and Andreas made the difficult decision to leave their jobs with Next in the UK to begin a new life in Cyprus.
Some of their customers may remember their first shop tucked away in a small back street in the old town where they quickly gained a reputation for quality products and good customer service. There was nowhere to park and the shop was tiny, business was growing steadily and it was soon time to find new premises.
Glen said back then believe it or not there were no vacant shops to be had in Paphos not even in the back streets and when they did finally find a new build shop months from completion, the developer asked for a large sum of money just to secure the site, unthinkable in today’s climate.
After some negotiations on the key money the time was right to move from their little shop to a brand new shop over twenty times the size. Although a huge gamble they knew they had to take the plunge to take Ampersand to the next level.
For the first few years Paphos continued to boom and the shop grew from strength to strength. Then came the recession all across Europe and once again it was time to adjust and reduce overheads so they were delighted when the shop next door became vacant.
Slightly smaller and almost half the rent it was perfect to ensure Ampersand would ride the storms.
Having seen developers advertising boards change from English to Russian to Arabic and now to Chinese they are still going strong and Glen tells me that the last two years have seen growth and January and February are already slightly ahead of last year.
The core of the business is still curtains, blinds and interior fabrics, but now offers a wonderful collection of furniture, lamps, ceiling fans and amazing interior accessories.
They have gone from having a limited collection of fabrics to now having some of the best exclusive fabrics by prestigious textiles, Romo, zinc to name just a few.
Most of the new fabrics have matching wallpaper books to ensure a complete look to your home.
