Louisa & Charlie White-Thomson

founded The Lost Corner in late 2015

The Lost Corner was established by husband and wife team, Charlie and Louisa White-Thomson. We share a broad range of eclectic experiences with the character of The Lost Corner drawing heavily on this mix, including: Interior design, Theatre, Fashion PR, Transpersonal Psychotherapy, Military service, Finance, extensive travel and an overall love of quality and aesthetic beauty.

This was the culmination of many years of discussion around starting a business together. We have been close since we were teenagers and married for the last 20 years.  The Lost Corner is very much a family business, and we look forward to the support and input from our three teenage children.

Business

Interior Design

Charlie looks after the business side at The Lost Corner. He spent 20 years working in the financial markets, with Barings, DLJ and Credit Suisse. His focus included both emerging and developed equity markets. During this time he held a series of different roles, including a fascinating 4 years living in Moscow, where he experienced first-hand the volatility of an emerging economy, and the challenges of building and growing a business in this environment.  Prior to this, he served for 4 years with the Grenadier Guards, which included active service on Operation Granby.  He particularly enjoys being involved with emerging and entrepreneurial opportunities.

Louisa looks after interior design and creativity at The Lost Corner. She has been interested in interior design since she was a child and grew up in a very creative household.  This early interest led her to California, where she read Liberal Arts with a focus on Theatre and Set design at Pepperdine University.  She immersed herself in Malibu’s highly visual and avant-garde environment, and further developed her eye for interesting objects and the art of combining and layering colours and material.  It was here she took on her first interior design projects and visited some of the most inspirational houses.  On returning to London, she turned her hand to modelling and fashion PR working with MOT, Favourbrook and Rachel Robarts.  She also started a family, trained and qualified as a Transpersonal Psychotherapist, studied at the Royal School of Needlework and developed further her interest in interior design, in many cases inspired by warm feedback on her own home.
