Back by Popular Demand

When we first introduced our traditional French Soft Grey Raffaella Bed back in 2013 it went down a storm, so much so in fact that we completely sold out of them in a matter of months. Since then we have had so much continued interest in them that we thought it was about time we brought it back. And today was the big day. We have just had a shipment of more of these fabulous 5ft beds ready and waiting to be snapped up by our customers. This gorgeous bedRead More

4th of July Independence Day

Today is the start of a weekend of celebrations throughout the USA celebrating the signing of the Declaration of Independence which took place 238 years ago today! Once Great Britain, as we were then known, got over the disappointment we promptly adopted all things American. So we have hamburgers, barbecues, cilantro, doughnuts and some pretty natty furniture named after American places and features. Such as the Montana console Table, the New York or the Beverly Hills console tables. All of which are as cool, sleek and stylish as their namesakes.Read More

Bring The World To You

Not going abroad this summer? Are you having a stay-cation? We have a few items that look exotic and have names that evoke that foreign country mystique.  You do not need to get your passport out to have these gorgeous items in your home. We love the Thai Drums as little side tables in both of the finishes. I want the Morocan Pouffes  in both the blue and the yellow for additional seating where and whenever they need it.  But most of all I adore the Venetian range and particularly theRead More

The Perfect Match

It has finally arrived and later this evening we will be off and running with the first matches of the World Cup 2014.  Fighting for supremacy on the sofa will be the usual suspects plus friends, neighbours, children, pets, beer and pizza.  Pile us all on the Montague Corner Sofa or the Lansdowne L Shape Sofa and we are a happy crowd. (I have hidden the vuvuzela for sanity’s sake!)   England!!!    Read More
Father's Day

Father’s Day

Fathers’ day is just around the corner! But don’t panic you still have some time left to find something more exciting than a home brew kit that, like last years, will most likely end up in the shed collecting dust. Forget socks or chocolates, say it with words! We have a charming assortment of wall plaques made with vintage playing cards. If you don’t like ‘Born to be King’ or ‘You Rock My World’ then why not have something custom made? Perhaps ‘Father of the Year’ or ‘World’s Best Dad’.Read More

The Wedding Season is Upon Us

Take the angst out of writing up a wedding gift list that will only results in you receiving three or four different toasters anyway, when you’ve already been living together for three years and own all the gadgets you’ll ever need. And take the stress out of choosing a present that costs you hundreds of pounds for your second cousins daughter’s eldest who’s having a Goth themed wedding in a castle dungeon and whom you haven’t seen since their christening. We have the solution; buy them a Sweetpea and WillowRead More

Chelsea Flower Show

5 days in May of horticultural brilliance.  We sent Amie, our roving reporter, to go and have a good look. Amie took some lovely photographs and on seeing them we all wanted to go home and tidy our gardens at once!  After all your garden is considered to be a room in its own right These delicious Digitalis or Foxglove attract bees and are such a lovely colour. I wonder if we might change the name of the Phoebe Velvet Bedroom chair to Foxglove? After meandering from one delightful garden to anotherRead More
