Chadwick Designs is the family-owned business of Tim and Belle Chadwick.
Wanting to ‘tree change’ to Canberra for the fresh air, big backyards and big skies, the family left Sydney and invested their savings into what they knew and loved: window furnishings.
Window furnishings can finish a room, warm a house, offer protection, inspire with colours and patterns or change the mood completely. Tim and Belle of Chadwick Designs hope their enthusiasm for clever design and great customer service is contagious, and look forward to working with you.
Chadwick Designs aims to bring the latest trends and best quality products to their customers. There is a huge emphasis on passing on knowledge and making Chadwick Designs a ‘go-to’ for any information or inspirations for your home or business.
Tim is originally a Sydney-sider and has creativity pulsing through his veins. After school, a graphic design course was completed but didn’t sufficiently scratch the artistic itch. Jobs in advertising established that a desk job was not for him.
Life took Tim to the highly-regarded COFA (College of Fine Arts, University of New South Wales) where Tim wowed all with his creativity and imagination. Graduating with distinction, it was time for a career.
Luck would have him working with a window furnishing installer. They worked with Sydney’s best designers in the most amazing houses imaginable. Here Tim learnt from the best.
Branching out on his own, Tim drew from those he admired and created his own business, working for designers right across Sydney. His perfectionist mentality, coupled with a work ethic of an ox, meant he was highly-regarded and was soon so booked out he was turning down work. With eight years’ installation experience, he has seen it all and prides himself on the flawless installation with room-changing results and happy clients all round.
Tim, his wife Belle and their two baby daughters found living in Sydney less alluring than the promise of space, fresh air, gum trees, art galleries and a family business.
Since she was a little girl, Belle has written lists, categorized, organized and scheduled anything she could get her hands on. Constantly searching for an outlet for her energy and hard work, Belle ended up in the logistics industry surrounded by deadlines, details and color co-ordinated folders. It was not enough to satisfy her drive.
Belle was determined to one day grow a business of her own.
Through a whirlwind of marriage and motherhood, Belle provided a support system for Tim and baby Kit. Then, in 2014 a decision was made. Together, Tim and Belle would create a family business that reflected their talents and what they loved. So, with a truck full of their furniture and ambitions, off to Canberra Belle and her family went. Chadwick Designs was born.
