Berdoulat shares its name with an 18th century farm house in South West France, the family home of the company's founder Patrick Williams.

Patrick's parents bought the house as a ruin when he was in the womb and gradually restored it over the course of his childhood. The thought and process involved in this venture rubbed off on Patrick who gained a passion for buildings, furniture, objects and decoration.

Patrick graduated with a BA Hons in Fine Art from Oxford University in 2003 and has since then dedicated his time to this business. He is a member of The SPAB, The Georgian Group and The Victorian Society.

Berdoulat is proud to be included in the House & Garden Top 100 Interior Designers list.
