FARE INC. is a London based design studio specialising in interior design, hospitality design and their neighbouring disciplines. Founded by Annabel Harrison in 2019, our work encapsulates beautifully considered urban finishes, contrasted against deeply textured, tactile fabrics and elegant lighting. Working with a little black book of specialist craftspeople, we create unique spaces with integrity, style and soul.
With a well-trained eye and over 8 years of experience in award-winning London design practices, Annie has honed an effortless design style illustrated over a variety of residential and hospitality projects. With a background in graphic design working with high end hotels, and following interiors training at the prestigious KLC School of Design, her portfolio now includes Michelin Guide restaurants, boutique cinemas, Soho drinking dens and London residences. With a unique ability to blend the cool with the classic, Annie crafts impactful openings for her clients, making them culturally relevant and in the eye of the public.
FARE INC creates tactile spaces with cleverly sourced finishes and bespoke, custom made furniture and lighting to give each space it's own identity. With a collaborative working style, we consider lifestyle, operations and flow whether it's a commercial or residential space - ensuring the interior adds value, and is curated with the client in mind.
“We have worked with Annie as a supplier for her commercial projects. She is always such a delight to work with - professional, creative and efficient. We love being involved in any of her projects!”
“Working with Fare has been an absolute pleasure - being a design house ourselves, we were wary (and cautioned!) that creative collaborations are difficult and there would be a lot of “locking horns”. Nonetheless when we met Annie we had a really good feeling and knew she would be able to not only understand our vision, but translate it elegantly and efficiently. The end result was not only one of the easiest professional partnerships I have ever worked with, but an interior space which has truly captured the spirit of what we were trying to convey. Annie goes above and beyond for her clients and her ease, enthusiasm and dedication really show through.”

“Kingly Street’s Kolamba is the inaugural project for both restaurateurs Aushi and Eroshan Meewella and London-based interior designer Fare Inc. And what a debut! Natural textures, neutral palettes and a unifying terrazzo design are used to pay homage to the “tropical modernism” movement of Sri Lankan architect Geoffrey Bawa. Elsewhere, linen-piped leather banquettes, woven pendants and bespoke batik artworks add a softness to rustic sawn-wood screens and polished concrete walls. “The space feels fresh and authentic, much like the dishes leaving the kitchen,” says Dylan Jones. To dine at Kolamba is to segue through the sun-soaked spice markets of Sri Lanka, to savour Sinhalese flavours heady with coconut, cardamom and lemongrass. Surrounded by tropical greenery, Ginger & Peppercorn Mule in hand, you’d be forgiven for forgetting you’re still in Soho.”
“Annie was utterly brilliant and professional- she got the brief and worked in harmony with us in producing the intended end goal. Her level of professionalism and ability to accommodate the clients requirements without sacrificing on the design aesthetic are what made working with her such an ease.”

“A space that has been made over in a style best described as – checks notes – “tropical modernism”. This means it’s a riot of oatmeal. The distressed brick walls in shades of artisanal granola give way to leather banquettes the colour of Jordans Country Crisp and a floor that recalls Kellogg’s Crunchy Nut. (I have just invented this UK breakfast cereal colour chart, and will be patenting it, though I live in fear of the restaurant that demands I reference Limited Edition Unicorn Fruit Loops.) There are big woven hanging lampshades and lighting turned down to that place on the dial marked “moody”. It’s calming, and suits the muggy, damp summer’s evening.
I have made it clear that it’s a lovely dinner, and a calming, restorative space. But it is something else. Kolamba is the gentle, ocean-deep pulse of the wide and diverse city, reasserting itself.”
