Richard owns and runs Bonds with his wife Zoe.  Richard worked in the Luxury Goods sector for many years, as a business start up specialist for French companies in the UK and Asia.  Just over 5 years ago an opportunity arose to buy what is now Bonds, and finally fulfil a life long aim and aspiration to go it alone. Richard is a maverick and drives his team crazy with his continuous ideas, but his unrelenting passion has helped establish the Bonds brand. Outside of work you will find Richard watching Rugby or walking with his family in the Cotswolds.


Zoe owns and runs Bonds with her husband Richard. After graduating from Plymouth University she acquired a strong passion for interior design and a love for interiors. Zoe has a talent for curating a room, with a particular skill in combining antiques with modern new pieces, she sees it as a marriage between the past and the present. Zoes other passion is fashion, hence the recent launch of the Bonds Boutique, classic colours, lovely textures and beautiful fabrics. Outside of work she happiest at home with her family, out socialising with friends and traveling to unsual places.
