“You guys were the dream team! And you really pulled off something very special. It’s all so beautiful and yet so functional. So respectful of the building architecture, yet so warm.”
“The journey of discovery was most enjoyable for us. And the discovery continues every day that we are in the office and our eye lands on a small but beautifully executed detail… or when we simply kick back and admire the delicate balance you achieved of everything we ever wished (and so often struggled to articulate). A massive thank you.”

“One would expect the interior design journey of a new house to be a tough one with too many difficult decisions to make. Honestly speaking, our experience with Staffan and his team was anything but difficult. We enjoyed every moment of working with a professional designer, whose calmness and confidence made it such an enjoyable two years.”
“Staffan’s main concern always is how to satisfy the client while making sure the design is comfortable and practical.”View the project
The team were understanding and pragmatic about – without diminishing an ambitious design approach and a fabulous result.View the project
Tollgard Design Group is an excellent design firm. They never stop creating, developing, and refining both the interior design as well as the furniture selection from first discussion until project completion. Their project monitoring and regular site visits ensured that our expectations were not just met, they were exceeded.View the project
It has been more than a year since Tollgard designed our home. And yet every time I enter my front door, I feel an inevitable lightness, a peace, and a pure joy of arriving home. Tollgard designed a beautiful home for my family that truly feels like a modern sanctuary. It combines aesthetic beauty with function in a manner that is modern and takes every family member into account.
The result may appear effortless, but it is quite the opposite. Staffan and Monique’s impeccable eye for design combined with an ability to empathise with their client and finally execute to perfection with a team of talented specialists.View the project
Having worked with Staffan Tollgård on numerous prime central London schemes, I cannot speak highly enough of their professional and meticulous approach to design proposals. Most impressive is their ability to consistently execute and translate their visions into reality. It is an absolute pleasure to work with the Staffan Tollgård team.

Tollgard Design Group is a fantastic commercially and practically minded company, who have great taste and a great eye for detail. They quickly grasped our strategy and requirements for an important scheme and have translated this into the interiors of the key shared spaces. We have been pleased with their technical skills and ability to communicate with the large design and construction team on this project. Their team commitment is outstanding.

I personally and through my company Thornsett Group plc have been a client of Staffan and Monique’s since their business started. Throughout that time they have worked on many new build projects varying in size from 5 to 220 residential units. Their sense of style, technical ability, and budget awareness sets them apart from other design companies. Separately we have worked together on high end single house refurbishments in London. Most recently we have completed a house in Notting Hill. Monique and Staffan and their team are a key part of our business and a pleasure to work with.View the project
Responsible for all interiors and part of the process in our newly built holiday home. They collaborated professionally and to an extremely high standard with us and the high profile architect. They demonstrated a unique understanding of our lifestyle and taste, as well as being wonderful and inspiring people to spend time with. We continue to work with Tollgard on our London residence.View the project
The Tollgard Design Group were amazing. They made a 14 month project stress free, and they made choosing the style, finish and furniture a very enjoyable process. They coordinated the project between 2 building teams and the architect very efficiently. This was our first large building project, and given the ease of execution, we will use the Tollgard team if we ever choose to do it again.
I worked with Tollgard Design Group on two different projects and I have no doubt they are the best interior design firm in London. Their scale allows them to have different designers with slightly different focus; the contractors they work with are top notch and they supply the best design furniture from all over the world, at competitive prices.
What I appreciated the most is the degree of involvement in every single detail so that even when there are hurdles to overcome, very little intervention is required by client. Another key advantage of Tollgard is their unique ability to interpret client unique taste and transform it into reality. On top of their outstanding professional skills, every person in the team is extremely friendly and easy to deal with, which also really helps especially when like me clients are the owners of the properties being worked on.View the project
Tollgard Design Group worked with us on the architectural interior design and decoration of our new-build holiday villa in the Algarve several years ago. They have also helped with some rooms in our home in the UK. They were professional, creative, collaborative and friendly, worked within our budget and have helped us create a home-from-home that has withstood the knocks of family and holiday life. We continue to work with them and would recommend them to others looking for interior designers that really listen to what their clients want.View the project
We brought on Monique and her team at Staffan Tollgård to design and decorate our new home. From the onset, I was impressed with the professional and thoughtful manner with which they approached the project. They created a home that was beautiful while listening to our input, adhering to our families’ needs, and staying within our budget. Our home is impressive, creative, and yet comfortable. We cannot recommend Staffan Tollgård highly enough to anyone looking for an interior design firm that they can rely on and trust to design their home.View the project
Staffan Tollgård and his team undertook the wholesale refurbishment of our three-bedroom apartment near the Old Brompton Road earlier this year. They quickly understood that the rental value of the apartment would be increased if they improved the layouts, moving the kitchen from one side of the apartment to the other and better utilising the available space. They were able to see that by moving two walls and creating openings in another that they could create a beautiful ensuite master bedroom and a connecting living-dining room. They project managed everything, from design to furniture and decoration, and I am delighted with the outcome. The apartment was rented within days of it hitting the market. I can whole-heartedly recommend them for similar projects where their thoughtful design approach adds real value.
Staffan Tollgard oversaw our 10 month, 3 floor, house renovation, covering both the architectural and interior design. Their attention to detail was incredible and they managed to maintain, & reintroduce, the Arts & Crafts style of the house in many features, whilst updating it with a modern feel, all the time keeping it as a family home – no mean feat! All the team were a pleasure to work with, and had innovative ideas, including the design of a hanging staircase, which had flummoxed both the stair company and the architect. The team really listened to our wants and needs for the interior design and we are delighted with the feel of the house. Their suggestions for light fixtures were particularly unusual and stunning. We would not hesitate to use them again or recommend them for a unique renovation or interior design experience.
