Hayley Manning


With nearly 20 years' experience, Hayley has always been interested in art and design and after studying interior design in Toronto, Canada, she came to the UK in 2002 to pursue her career. Feeling very passionate about the industry, Hayley is now deeply involved in the profession. As Student Director on the Board at the British Institute of Interior Design (BIID), she is often asked to give talks to students and newly qualified designers about the importance of professionalism within the industry and how to further their careers.

Collaboration and team work are key to the way Hayley designs; “You can’t design in a bubble, you need stimulation and input from clients and other creative people. It’s hugely important in keeping things fresh and new.”
