Interior stylist and former social worker Emily is the founder of Furnishing Futures, a charity that fully furnishes and decorates the homes of women and children who have escaped domestic abuse and have been rehoused in empty flats and houses in London. Social housing is given without any flooring, curtains, white goods and furnishings. Emily created the charity supported by a collective of interior stylists, designers, retailers and brands who donate items that cannot be sold and would otherwise go to landfill. The charity works alongside families and designers to fully furnish the homes with everything the families need, and is currently transforming a women’s refuge in northeast London with the interior designer Rebecca Wakefield.
