Ralph + Smith are a small team of dedicated, creative individuals whose ethos is to provide a personal and relaxed, yet professional, service.
We get to know who you are and what you do. We listen to your story and objectives so we can apply our strategically creative thinking to design your interior scheme, informed by research, competition, trends and your brand.
We pride ourselves in our ability to balance efficiency of space, sustainability, wellbeing, innovation and budget.
We follow the RIBA process and produce technical drawings and photo-real CGIs of our proposals along the design journey, which gives you full clarity and the advantage of seeing the finished vision before any construction work begins.
Furniture is intrinsic to any interior and our expertise ensures a bespoke selection, full specification and purchase service to suit your requirements and project budget, together with procurement and finance options.
I would wholeheartedly like to recommend Ralph + Smith for their professionalism and design skills. Working with Chloe and Claire has been an enjoyable experience, resulting in outstanding furniture choices for the University of Northampton.
Jane Bunce | Director of Student and Academic Services | University of Northampton
From day one Ralph + Smith have had a strong understanding of our needs and requirements for the space. Their professionalism and effervescent personalities have made this project a joy.
Andrew Berrie | Marketing and Communications Operations Manager | University of Northampton
As well as providing the overall interior design for spaces, they procured some beautiful furniture for us and navigated some interesting challenges.
Helen Hayward | Operations Director | St Catharine’s College
Their product knowledge is exemplary...balancing value with quality. In a project with a significant number of challenges, their involvement significantly de-risked this important element of the fit-out, with the finished article delighting the end-users.
John Dalton | University Project Management Consultant | Representing UoC
Chloe and Claire are a wonderful team. Claire gets Chloe’s vision and carefully selected just the right pieces of furniture that tied the design together. You are such a delight to work with.

Throughout the whole process Ralph + Smith took a proactive and collaborative approach and worked really well with the Stanton Williams team and the client team at CJBS. We hope to have the opportunity to work with Ralph + Smith again in the future.

Chloe and Claire did an excellent job right from the initial surveys, through to concepts and developed designs in producing a scheme and finishes that not only blended in with the building but also met all of our requirements in terms of features and budget.
