From young childhood I was attracted to fabrics – so that I was already seated by my mother’s sewing machine at age 12. This fascination with fabrics and sewing as a hobby never left me, even during my years as a professional secretary, so eventually I enrolled in private Design School in Prague. I studied the entire realm of interiors but I really wished to focus in one specific arena, which for me had to be my first love – textiles and their application to interiors. So I started my business in the field of fabrics/interior décor in 2013, when I opened my own small atelier under my own name.
Therefore I am extremely happy to be able to offer you a wide array of beautiful materials and our own refined services in a completely renovated beautiful space situated on the attractive Arbesovo náměstí in Smíchov with a beautiful view of the green park. It was my dream to be able to offer my clients an urban space encompassing sophisticated design and a feeling of nature along with excellent transportation access. The showroom is a 5 minute walk from the Smichov shopping center (Andel) with tram stop Arbesovo namesti on lines 9, 12, 15, and 20.
My philosophy is that you should feel totally comfortable and relaxed in our showroom as if you were home, and therefore better able to envision the solutions that will work in your own home.
I am extremely proud that my portfolio of suppliers consists 90% of family firms with long business traditions – often a century – who are the leaders in their specialized arenas. In addition to fabrics, which we import primarily from France, England, Portugal and Germany, I have been able to arrange suppliers of beautiful wallpaper and now tasteful rugs/carpets which are made primarily by hand in India and Nepal. You will also find a wide offering of upholstery fabrics here to renovate your favorite armchair or sofa that is handed down in your family from generation to generation.
Most of our projects require professional measuring, planning, sewing and installation. You can be sure that at Kamila Harris Home we know our craft well and we enjoy carrying it out for you. Normally we do our own measuring of windows and rooms to ensure correct outcomes for your window treatments: this turns into specifications not only for the curtains but also the technical hardware to ensure it fits right and looks great.
Why did I decide to establish the brand Kamila Harris Home?
It’s very common in Western Europe and elsewhere in the world to establish a business behind one’s own family name…athough this concept was mostly lost in our own country in the past due to the political regime. To build a business under your own name is especially a major commitment towards clients and even towards oneself since one’s reputation is then directly connected to the quality of work that is achieved
Interior design services
Now we are offering also expert interior design services in-house, with Toscha van Randwijck from Holland.
Toscha discovered her love for colors and textures while watching her grandmother paint silk flowers in the most beautiful and exotic colors. While living in Paris she developed her love for architecture and combined both passions in interior design study while living in Florida. After living many years in South America Toscha founded together with her partner Scarlett an interior design firm in 2002 in Amsterdam, Equilibre-Interiors (www.equilibre-interiors.com). In 2014 she moved to Prague and started working as a designer for the company of her husband, Bohemian Works.(www.bohemianworks.com).
In early 2019 Toscha decided to go back into interior design and teamed up with Kamila in Prague to expand the business of Kamila Harris Home. Kamila and Toscha share their love of fabrics and colors and with the new brand of KA International they are sure they can offer something unique in the decorating market of the Czech Republic.
