About Sue

I love shopping!
In my teens, I worked on a Saturday till 3pm and by 3.10pm I was on the bus to Newcastle – super excited to see what was happening … Miss Selfridge and Warehouse were my haunts.
Then came University life in London and the Saturday buzz from Harvey Nichols, Liberty and Selfridges.
Working life started in London with John Lewis and Laura Ashley and the realisation ‘My future must be in Retail’.
I came back home to Northumberland, purchased my 1st house and joined the buying Team at Fenwick department store. Through the years, I have been responsible for a variety of departments, from Fashion or Gifts to Xmas Decorations or Fine Art – the variety has allowed me to source from all over the UK as well as Abroad.
My MD moved me into the Furnishings Home department saying ‘You have an eye for this product’ – and the passion began… Mirrors, wall art, soft furnishings, lighting, occasional furniture – all for the Geordie public to enjoy. It was a privilege.
We are all more confident in the way we live and like our houses to have a more individual look. The high street is not providing this. There is amazing product out there. And I want you to have it in your home. I will select with care distinctive finds and the perfect finishing touches to complement your home. Stylish, inspirational, eclectic, design led accents – all reflecting the latest trends in interior design.

Why Sourced?

Sourced is simply the business of obtaining a product. But it does entail a lot of expert knowledge, contacts, experience, and certainly a good eye helps!

The Home is the story of who we are, told through the things we provide space for and the colours we surround ourselves with. I know that some times everyone needs a little help with choosing the right type of product.

I have personally sourced with care, items that reflect individual style and personality. Accent pieces that coordinate beautifully with todays homes, whatever your style might be. I want you to buy from the luxury of your own home, with time to consider colour, style, size and price. For you to select the perfect finishing touch, not random or distracting, but complimentary with your room’s decor.

The Sourced by Sue Hunt product range will continue to be built as I go out and about selecting new items or looking for ideas and inspiration, perhaps a little eclectic at times or even kitsch!

I will always be mindful of peoples budgets. A piece of furniture is an investment. An item that you will enjoy for years afterwards, but occasionally it can be a bit of fun, not an investment, but a pop of colour to liven up your room. I believe you can achieve an amazing look without involving great expense. Quality is important to me and I will always bear this in mind. Close supplier relationships are also a significant part of my business and I have selected with care.

Quality, price, stock and deliveries are all essential elements. Of course there will be times when stock will be low or on back order. But I believe if it is the right piece for you then it will be worth waiting for.

As a small business, I like to be transparent and honest. I will do my very best to provide a service I am proud of. I have chosen NOT TO CHARGE for deliveries in the UK mainland. The best delivery service will be selected, based on weight, size and fragility. Some items will come direct to you from the Supplier.
