ABOUT WESTGATE INTERIORS
― Our Story
For more than 30 years, Westgate Interiors has been reimagining and reshaping corporate interior across Sri Lanka.
In 1987, its founder, Dehara Gomes, identified a need for highly functional, full-service interior solutions that would be easily accessible to fast growing corporations. Embracing the rapid transformation of interior trends across the corporate sector, Westgate Interiors quickly established itself as an innovator.
As its portfolio of clients grew so did the scope of its ambitions, and Westgate Interiors seized the opportunity to create better value for its clients by establishing an in-house manufacturing facility to produce its designs. As a result, Westgate Interiors can offer a seamless end-to-end service that guarantees not only the best quality but also the best customer service. From the initial exchange of ideas at our first consultation through to manufacturing at our purpose-built facility in Panadura and beyond to fit-out and after-sales care, Westgate Interiors supports its clients every step of the way. We understand that people’s needs change and develop, and that is why we collaborate and innovate together with our clients throughout the process. This bespoke client-led approach produces authentic results that have become the hallmark of our craft.
We remain, at our heart, a family-run business now in its second generation of operation; proud of what has gone before but looking ahead to what is yet to come.
Dehara Gomes, who received her executive education at Hult Ashridge Business School in the UK and is also a chartered accountant under the auspices of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants in the UK, was the driving force behind the creation of Westgate Interiors.
She began her professional career at Endura Fabrics as an Accountant and moved into the interior design field in 1989. As the Managing Director throughout the life of the company; her strategic vision and leadership has brought Westgate Interiors to where it is today; the undisputed market leader.
Elisha is the head of Strategy and Business Development at Westgate Interiors, a second generation interior design company founded by her mother, Dehara Gomes.
Elisha spent her formative years in Sri Lanka studying at Visakha Vidyalaya before moving to the UK to study for her undergraduate degree at Manchester Business School in 2012. In 2013, she completed the Summer Program at Imperial College Business School and, in 2014, spent a year at Babson College in Boston, USA before returning to Manchester for her final year. Following her undergraduate degree, Elisha went on to complete a Masters in Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Management at Imperial College, London.
In parallel with her academic achievements, Elisha excelled in her sporting career, competing in synchronise swimming at the Commonwealth Games (2010) and the Asian Games (2006, 2010).
