Sharon Bobel

Sharon, originally from Cincinnati, owned an interior design company in Northwestern Ohio until moving to the UK where she lived for seven years collecting china, studying Georgian and Victorian Times, and entertaining in an English Manor House setting

On return to the US,  much of Sharon’s collection went into storage while she pursued her interior design career.  After completing several home designs, Sharon realized that her true passion was china settings, and table presentation.

With this realization, Sharon formed English Manor House  to share her collections, table presentation skills, and table design experience with clients,  to make their dining events unique and memorable.
