About Darren Mercer
Darren Mercer is an award winning interior designing from Manchester, England. Darren runs Darren Mercer Interiors, an interior design company specialising in bespoke commercial and private client projects with offices in Liverpool and Stockport.
Darren has been in the interior design trade for 22 years, and has worked all over the UK, Europe and North America. With an extensive list of industry contacts, a wealth of experience, unrivalled design knowledge and a great team behind him, Darren is seen as one of the leading Interior Designer’s in Britain.
The studio has worked on all kinds of different properties and projects, ranging from tiny studio apartments all the way up to large complexes, office buildings and period Country Estates.
Darren’s innate passion for design can be traced way back to early days in his childhood. His enthusiasm and fervour for all things interiors drives his team to be the best they can possibly be. His easy-going and approachable manner help to endear him to everyone he works with, and staff at Darren Mercer Interiors regularly describe his studio as the best they have worked at, citing Darren’s enthusiasm, knowledge, and motivation as three key factors.
Any of Darren’s time away from interior design (not that he has too much of that!) is spent playing his 1970’s Martin Guitar, and enjoying time with his wife and son, Harry. Darren is also a member of British Humanist Association, and loves American TV shows, such as Curb Your Enthusiasm, Parks and Recreation and Entourage.
Darren Mercer’s personal design style was heavily influenced by Scandinavian functionalism and Art Deco. Darren also loves modern and industrial styles – anywhere that technology and humans can interact and be made beautiful.
Darren was educated at the University of Liverpool and graduated with a 1st in Interior Design. He spent time studying at the Inchbald School of Design in London and is also a member of the British Institute of Interior Design.
