Avril also handles commissions for upholstery, curtain making and working with fabrics. Not surprisingly, tartans feature strongly in the range of work carried out at Pirn House.

Pirn House was established six years ago by Avril, whose interior design skills and curtain making services are in demand throughout the UK. “Originally we had a small cafe area for clients and visitors to the Interior Design section.

“It became so popular we decided to expand and set up a dedicated eatery and now the sides of the business complement each other wonderfully. The coffee shop has built its reputation on fine food, made on the premises and using the best local produce available in the Borders.

“There’s always a great buzz about the place and visitors are assured a warm welcome,” said Avril.
