TV Presenter and Renowned Designer Helps Thorp Arch Emporium Celebrate First Birthday

Decoporium welcomed TV presenter, designer and entrepreneur Max McMurdo as they marked their first year of trading.

Designed to suit all styles and budgets, Decoporium provides a vast range of interior design ideas sold by individual traders and craftspeople.

Honouring their first full year in business, the Thorp Arch-based emporium welcomed families for a day of entertainment and shopping, and an opportunity to meet upcycler Max McMurdo.

Armed with a mug of Yorkshire tea, Max spent the afternoon chatting with a variety of traders and exploring their individual work.

Owned and managed by Billie Ager-Mills, who also designs and sells her own work – Sillie Bille – from Decoporium, a remarkable first year’s growth attracts an increasing number of diverse traders and visitors every week.
