The Story of


Come with us on an adventure through interior design. Unlock your home’s potential with luxurious, personal, provocative ideas; project your personality into every room.

In the beginning…

Miscellanea was founded in Churt in 1980 by Eddie Powell. Tucked away in this delightful village, we’re one of Surrey’s best kept secrets. Our showroom is open to the public and we’d love you to visit it – it’s an inspiring experience you won’t forget.

Established in 1980, Miscellanea of Churt offers an unrivaled spectrum of interiors, from authentic traditional through to cutting-edge contemporary.

From humble beginnings, Miscellanea has become a pilgrimage for anyone seeking to create unique and individual settings.

Originating from Ebbw Vale, South Wales, Eddie Powell purchased Churt village hardware shop primarily to supplement his grant whilst studying photography and sculpture at Farnham College of Art.

Initially and still specialising in bathrooms, our repertoire has extended into a full interior design service to include kitches, bedrooms, libraries, studies etc., or simply single items of bespoke furniture, art and decoration, all of which have organically grown to satisfy an ever increasing demand from their discerning clientele.

We have on display a vast collection of unique sculptures, bespoke furniture, glassware, paintings and prints, ceramics, lighting, textiles, tiles - everything to make a home complete.

What we do

We began as bathroom specialists and have now branched out into full interior design services including kitchen, bedroom etc. Working with our trusted partners, we offer a full design and fitting service. As well as selling beautiful items from our eclectic showroom. 

Our mission is to lead homeowners out of their comfort zone and find a new aesthetic beyond traditional limits. Whether you’re planning to replace your bathroom, revamp your kitchen or create a new focal point in the rest of the house, we have a wide range of furniture, fixtures and fittings to help you achieve your goal. Our range covers every taste, from museum-standard antiques to ultra-modern bathroom furniture and we have prices to suit every budget.

Our clients

Every client is unique and most come to us through a personal recommendation – a fact of which we are justifiably proud! We love working with people who want an exceptional home: people who are unafraid to push boundaries and express themselves through interior design.
