Founder & Managing Director
Toby qualified with a BA (Hons) in Interior Design from Regent's University London. During his four-year study period he was awarded the Dean's Award for Arts and held internships for world-leading interior designers. Toby also holds an American Degree in Interior Design (BFA) - allowing him to work globally with the correct accreditations. After 12 years of experience in the high-end residential interior design arena, Toby opened his own interior design studio.
Two years later, in 2019, Toby opened our beautiful Berkhamsted interior design showroom, boutique and e-commerce store. Since then the business has gone from strength to strength, and became finalists in the SBID International Interior Design Excellence Awards in it's opening year!
Project Manager & Business Development
Nina comes with a wealth of marketing experience having worked for an array of different agencies over her career, but loves nothing more than beautiful interiors and homewares, so the move to Tobias Oliver Interiors was an easy decision!
Nina predominantly works on project management. But also enabling and implementing business growth, improving efficiency, sales and productivity through effective management and marketing. However, she is also paramount in helping with design decisions and keeping budgets in line with clients' expectations to ensure all our projects run smoothly.
Showroom Manager & Executive Assistant
Ambika has extensive experience working in Retail Management having grown up with it being the foundation of her life. Coupled with her love for all things interior and 12 years’ experience working as a Personal/Executive Assistant within various business sectors, make her the perfect fit for our Showroom and Design Studio.
She has a passion for detail and ensuring everything is running according to plan. Her determination and drive to succeed aids her in all she does and achieves.
Ambika can be found in our Showroom during the week. She is always there to offer advice and a helping hand should you need any help choosing the perfect additions to your home.
Design & Showroom Assistant
Izzy is currently completing a degree in Interior Design at the University of Edinburgh. Now in her third year at University, she also works for Tobias OIiver Interiors remotely whilst in Scotland. During the holiday periods, Izzy works as a design and showroom assistant, working on projects but also the day-to-day running of the showroom.
Izzy is naturally very artistic and can often be found sketching on her iPad. She loves to spend time with her family and has interests in drama and acting.
Ruthie is passionate about design and is a natural fit in our luxury lifestyle boutique. Ruthie is here to guide you through our brands and provide you with an understanding of the designers behind each brand and what inspires them.
Ruthie is typically with us at weekends and busier times during the week. Always happy to talk about your requirements and offer suggestions, whether it is a gift for someone special, or maybe for yourself ;-)
As well as art and design, Ruthie’s interests include literature, fashion drawing and dance. She particularly enjoys ballet and set design.
Having recently returned from living in the Netherlands for 4 years Claire now lives in rural Norfolk with her two dogs Ted and Frodo.
Claire is a qualified accountant and has been working with numbers for nearly 20 years (and bizarrely still loves it). When she is not having fun working (or more accurately chasing Toby and Nina for invoices and receipts) she can be found walking in her wellies, enjoying a fine wine or reading a good book!
