Nicki – FabAuxGets
FabAuxGets is the name of my curtain and soft furnishing business based in Les Gets, Portes du Soleil. My name is Nicki and I have a workshop situated in the Old Village of Les Gets. I have had my own business here for 4 years and previously have worked here and in the UK creating hand made bespoke curtains, blinds, cushions, upholstery and other soft furnishings, tailored to each clients’ requirements.
I have a selection of fabrics and samples here in the workshop, working with high end brands such as Abraham Moons, Harlequin, Zoffany, and Luxaflex but also work with lower priced fabrics to fit most budgets. I initially visit each client to tailor each job to their budget, sourcing fabrics, poles, and blinds or helping with a little inspiration, seeing the project through from start to the final installation. A crucial element of my work is the measuring and final fitting of each project and I personally oversee all installations to make sure that each job is finished to a high standard.
I can work with fabric that clients have sourced themselves, and have re-made/re-configured existing curtains to hang beautifully in their new locations. The weighting and finishing is a very important element of beautiful curtains and blinds.
I have also worked on upholstery projects and repairs and love a challenge! If it is out of my remit I have other specialists that I work with and will give an honest overview of what can be done.
“When we moved into our new chalet in 2016, Nicki was just starting up her business. I needed curtains for three bedrooms and our living area, which has four large patio windows, but I didn’t really know what sort of fabric would work. I immediately liked Nicki’s approachable and friendly nature, and she was full of great ideas. She suggested some lovely fabrics which work perfectly with our colour schemes, but within our budget. I also ended up buying a couple of the Luxaflex blinds for our kitchen and bathroom windows as they sit neatly inside the window, plus some cushion covers for the bed to match our curtains. Her work is exceptional with fantastic attention to detail. She is reliable and is always available for advice, even after she has finished the project. I will always highly recommend her to anyone looking for quality curtains or soft furnishings” Sarah
“Where to start! Nicki’s work is such an integral part of our chalet. She has continuously provided excellent guidance for curtains, blinds and cushions. Delivery has always been on time or even early and installation always always cleanly and efficiently done.
I guarantee that when the time comes we will definitely come to Nicki for refurb, new ideas etc. She’s a precious resource to the area and runs a great little business” Dianne
‘We first met Nicki In Les Gets several years ago when she was recommended to us as we needed a bedspread and cushions made for one of our guestrooms. We were so impressed with the way she went about the task and what she produced we have gone back to her on numerous occasions for both the odd little job and when we carried out a major refurbishment. Nicki has supplied:
- Blinds for our bathroom
- Curtains for our Bedrooms
- Matching Bedspreads and Cushions for our Bedrooms
- She also reupholstered an existing sofa bed we had and made two beautiful heart-shaped matching cushions.
We have no hesitation in recommending Nicki. Her work is beautiful and her attention to detail second to none. Her cheerful and friendly personality make each occasion a fun experience. She always comes up with some super suggestions too! Ray & Angie Horney’
