Founded in 2012 Harris Jackson is a Hampshire based interior design practice working in the residential & boutique hotel sector. At the helm of Harris Jackson is Samantha Crockett who has over twenty years’ experience in the design industry in various realms. Based in Lymington on the edge of the New Forest, the Harris Jackson studio encompasses both London and the south east of the British Isles.
Samantha began her career in costume and set design before diversifying into interiors. While designing large scale musical productions in the West End of London and working with some of the top stars internationally, Samantha learnt the value of creating long lasting memories, an insight she carries through into her interior design today. This passion is what drives her to create stunning interiors & memorable experiences for any guest staying in a hotel that she has designed.
She has global experience and has designed luxury hotels and residences in Asia and the Middle East, working with the most elite names in the hotel industry such as Mandarin Oriental, St Regis and Langham amongst many others. After returning from Asia, having lived and worked there for 6 years, Samantha & her young family moved back to the New Forest where she grew up so that her sons could enjoy the beautiful scenery of the South coast and the forest for themselves.
The studio is open by appointment only, where we hold a vast array of samples, from some of the best suppliers in the industry. Clients can view fabrics, wall coverings, woods, stones, tiles, passementerie, glass and a select choice of product brochures in our library.
Samantha’s approach is friendly and personal, Harris Jackson is named after her two young sons and she runs the practice from a newly appointed studio at her home just a stone’s throw from the coast. It is important to Samantha that her ethos runs through every project and she personally oversees all designs from concept to completion.
Samantha prides herself on the close relationships with her clients and believes the design process is a constant dialogue. She likes to work collaboratively with her clients. Regular, concise communication is key to ensuring the process remains personal and on brand.
Samantha is passionate about design and discovering new trends, she draws inspiration from her travels and different cultures as well as her extensive product knowledge from years of working in the industry. Her work always strikes the balance between style and functionality, ensuring an elegant and flawless finish.
