Deirdre, Oxon

Wow! The prints arrived yesterday but because we weren’t home to pay the customs charges, we received the package today.

Such an amazingly short shipping time that I had no idea what the package was.

Anyhow, I wanted to tell you that the prints have arrived in perfect health and just need a quiet time to be flattened in big book.

Thanks Nicki!


Marty, Canada

Dear Nicki

Just to let you know that the lovely white pendant and lamp have arrived and we are delighted with them, they look wonderful in our bedroom!

Thank you so very much

Kind Regards


Hi Nicki

Many thanks for your swift response.

OK I think for the hassle it will cause getting a new one sent we will have a go at gluing it and have the discount on it please hopefully this will work. It’s really frustrating as we can see its not the fault of yours. We already have a matching rams head in the same style so will partner this well.

Thank you again for your good customer service.

Kind Regards


Dear DesRes,

I received the shabby chic table lamp today and just wanted to say thank you, it is absolutely beautiful.


Hi Nicki

My first contact with DesResDesign was via an advertisement in Living ETC. I am currently renovating a large Victorian property, and was searching for some industrial chic items.

As I browsed the DESRESDesign website, I was delighted to discover many clever, unique items which would be perfect “statement” pieces for several areas in my house. The site provided me with all the information I needed to measure and check suitability of each piece.

Several days after I placed my order I received a telephone call from Nicki Massey, the company director.

Nicki had taken the time to contact me to confirm that a chair I had ordered was not for outdoor use – confirming that she had another chair in the same style that had been treated for outdoor use. I was pleasantly surprised that someone would take the time to check this detail with me. As I chatted with Nicki, it became apparent that design was a true passion for her, and she really enjoyed the process of dressing houses, but also listening to her clients and trying to find the piece which would suit their ideal, not her own.

Nicki has helped to make the process of designing my house fun – and she has given me confidence to work through my ideas.

I will be using DesResDesigns again, and I would confidently recommend the company, their director and staff to anyone working in home design.

Yours Sincerely

Helen, Dorset


The order arrived this morning and I’ve checked it – particularly the glass shades and all is well.

They are perfect.

Thank you very much for your help when I rang with questions and for such a quick delivery.


Brenda, Preston

Hi Nicki, the Highland Cow sculpture arrived safely yesterday morning, the birthday of my wife. It was was quickly gift wrapped then unwrapped and she absolutely loves it so many thanks for all your efforts.

James, Lincolnshire

Hi Nicki,

The plates arrived safely today and they’re lovely – thank you. I just wanted to say that if, by any chance, more of the side plates appear unexpectedly, please do let me know as I’d love to have some more.

Many thanks

Deborah, Hove

Hi Nicki

My order arrived this morning …. amazing service! It’s certainly going to be a talking point and I can’t wait to see my partner’s face when he opens it on his birthday tomorrow.

Thank you for your excellent customer service .. I will definitely recommend your company to family and friends.

Kind regards

Lesley, Aberdeen

The service from Nicki was utterly fantastic, absolutely personal and it really would be a pleasure to recommend her. As a production manager juggling a number of deliverables and projects, she is exactly the sort of supplier you want on side. One prepared to divert and redirect goods if necessary to ensure deadlines are met.

Mulika OH, London

Hi Nicki

I just wanted to say how delighted I am with all my new goodies – the chadeliers are AMAZING!! Love them so much – as well as the floor and table lamps! They are truly unique. Thank you for a very professional and personal service too, unlike any other online company. You were so helpful and obviously enjoy what you do. Can’t wait to see what else you source – will be checking on DESRES regularly.


Hi Nikki

Hi Nicki

Just wanted to let you know the bookends arrived today in perfect shape. They are gorgeous. Im so glad I bought a set for myself too! I know my sister will be thrilled with them when she gets them on her birthday! Thanks again for all your help> It was a pleasure dealing with your company.

Eileen Utley BC

Nicki……I wanted to let you know my order was received by my daughter on Friday in Roseville. You are exemplary in your shipping and packing. She said you did a marvelous job of the packing. It’s interesting that often the shipping time from the UK or Europe is faster than things we order domestically.

At any rate, she said the (lamp) birds are lovely and I can’t wait to see them. I wanted them shipped to her as she has a business address and also 2 were a gift for her…Thank you for the good service.

Barbara Wilson USA

Hi Nicki, clock has arrived today and is absolutely lovely. Thank you for prompt service, happy christmas.

I am very pleased with how easy you made this transaction and the
timely delivery. Thank you for your every courtesy.

Flo Hatcher USA

The Swallows you sent recently have come home to roost unharmed. My daughters love them.

Dear Nicki, My little swallow arrived safe and well, she’s beautiful and won’t be migrating !! Thank you for the little tealight as well. Hopefully I’ll be in touch soon.

Diane D

Hello Nicki,

The fish crockery arrived this morning at 8am – thank you. Just had to let you know how pleased I am with it. As you so rightly said, it is rather gorgeous! I love it. Thank you for your help with the ordering. I did take on board what you said about co-ordinating the colours, but having had both sand, and blue, Denby pottery over the years, I am now concentrating on a white collection.

Best wishes

Hazel R - Lancs

Hi Nicki,

I found your website by pure chance and I am glad I did. My father in law suggested I look I in the UK as I was trying to find box light pendants everywhere here that were not flat square boxed shaped ones and your’s were perfect as they have the triangular shape at the top. Will go fabulously in our kitchen and entryway!


Rose-Anne Australia

Hi Nicki,

I just wanted to drop you an email to let you know all the pendant lights arrived last week. They were so well packaged and thank you for taking the time. Thank you also for your lovely gifts we will definitely be using them once the renovation is finished in November. Thanks once again and when the kitchen is finished I will forward you a picture!


Rose-Anne Australia

I just wanted to drop you a little line to say thank you so very much for the prompt delivery of my order. I received it the next day (Thursday) and opened it after getting back from college and almost squealed with delight!! The bag is absolutely beautiful and much bigger than I anticipated so it’s going to be a wonderful weekend bag – I’ve packed my toiletries in there already, so I can’t wait to use it! The little purses are really lovely, as is the scarf. I’m so pleased with the whole set and it will be a great look for the spring. We had the Lily candle on over the weekend too, and it’s utterly gorgeous, and I’m sure my mum will love the beach one as it smells so fresh. So, I just wanted to say, as a buyer I think you have great taste and clearly have an eye for quality. I will be telling everybody where I got my fab new stuff from. You deserve to be successful.

Allie - Wales

The Candles are gorgeous – I’ll definitely be buying more of those.

Jules, Worcestershire

Lovely products and the best service I have ever had from an online retailer – personal and no effort spared. Highly recommended.

Best wishes

Jo, London

Dear Nicki, thank you so much for the beautifully packed parcel ,received last week,sorry it has taken so long for me to respond to your excellent service and products. Wishing you a very good trading period on the run up to Christmas you deserve to do so well as you have put so much thought into your website and offer such a personal service.I think this is probably going to be the toughest run up to Christmas that we have seen in 20 years of trading ,people are VERY strapped for cash. Kind Regards, Jo

Jo, Somerset

Hi Nicki

Just to let you know the parcel arrived safely and my Grandchildren and I had a lot of fun un-wrapping all the packing and their eyes lit up when they found what it was. They promptly ran off to fetch all their toys to fill the basket. My wife and I are very impressed with the quality of the basket and thank you again most sincerely for running the competition and picking my name out of the hat.
I wish you and your company well
Thanks again

Mike M, Birmingham

Thanks Nicki…. Kitchen fitter/electrician so amazed with light that he’s going to take a photo after the granite work surfaces have been fitted! Thanks again for the great service and FAB light. Take care and I will recommend your company. Everyone will want to know where the light came from!”

Nicki W, Sutton Coldfield

Dear Nicki, The lamp we ordered turned up as you said and we were so impressed with it’s quality that we would like to order another one.

Trevor E, Berkshire

Hi Nicki, The lovely lamp has arrived. No damage and I’m really pleased with it. Many Thanks.

Sally A, Isle Of Wight

Lamp has arrived it’s just lovely! Off to buy a bulb to fit (I’ve got every size but). Well worth the wait, thanks,

Glenys C, Derbyshire

I am delighted with the lamp shade & appreciate your delivery service!

Denise L, Cheshire

I bought 3 gun metal pendant lights from you back in March and I am absolutely delighted with them. They look wonderful in our pool house. My husband suggested that I buy some more bulbs for them as they look great.

Hilary B, East Yorkshire

Hi, Thank you for your service, I have to tell you that it is one of the best services a company has given me from the begining when I ask for more information. Keep going that way, you are sure I will do business again with you without hesitation. Thanks.

Louis D, Montreal Canada

I received the light yesterday morning and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! Thank you for packaging it so well, it was in perfect condition. Can’t believe it was easier (and faster) to buy a light from you in the UK than organising another light through a local shop 15 minutes from my home.

Thank you once again,

PS. The light bulb is great! If I can’t find anything else like them around here, you may have another order from me.

Yvette C, Australia

Hi Nicki, Jacqui and all at Des Res.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you following the arrival of my prize box of gorgeous candles. I’m so impressed, they smell lovely, the wild flowers especially are absolutely spot on. We lit a couple of tealights last night and I’m amazed that I can still use them again, the large ones will burn forever !!

Hope you sell masses of Diamond Summer, my son took a pic on his phone to show everyone that my name is on the glass 🙂 happy

Thank you all so much – love Jo x

Jo M, Wales

Hi Nicki
