We’d need a book to share with you just how much experience and knowledge Doug brings to the Nicholls team. But put it this way – a Bachelors’s degree in Economics, trained at Melbourne College of Textiles, and being born and raised in an entrepreneurial family has him more than qualified to lead and inspire the team here at Nicholls.
One of the greatest benefits of working in a business with so much history is the people. Over 100 years Nicholls Interiors have built a fantastic rapport with the Community, which makes working with customers and their future generations somewhat special.

Eliza joined the Nicholls team in late 2016 and is in charge of our installs diary, customer service calls and repairs. If you’ve received a free measure and quote then its likely Eliza had a hand in making it happen. We measure and quote six days of the week so you can imagine just how busy (and essential) Eliza’s job is.
Before joining Nicholls Eliza had a long career in the exhibition industry, we think that is why she so great at managing all the shop schedules so efficiently.
Eliza enjoys her role not only because of the wonderful and professional staff she gets to work with each day but her pivotal instore role also allows her to also assist customers to update their spaces with beautiful products.
I really enjoy meeting our customers in the showroom and having a chat about different products or fabrics that would suit them. I just love beautiful fabrics!
