Showroom with a view

The sun might be hiding today but our gorgeous furniture is well and truly on display! It is the last Saturday of the month which means that we are open and so is the prosecco. There is a great atmosphere as usual with the scented candles lighting, the classical music playing and our lovely guests smiling. Our resident elephant is enjoying the open day too, having a morning stroll along our exquisite Guibourg Console Table. Maybe by the afternoon he will have made it to the Magnolia Table Lamp!!

Mothering Sunday

Christmas and Valentine’s Day are now just a fading memory and coming around next on the celebration carousel is the most important day, Mother’s Day or to some, Mothering Sunday.

You’ve got a Trend !!

We are now back in the Sweetpea office and buzzing with ideas after our extensive walk around the floor of the HOME exhibition in the Kensington Olympia. It was one monstrous showroom of furniture, gifts, interior inspiration and exceptionally tasty coffee, and with so much to see, we really appreciated that caffeine kick. We spent hours weaving through the vibrant stalls and stunning stands seeking new fashions and enjoying unusual and exciting brands. With a keen eye for current and upcoming trends it was not hard for us to spotRead More

You Say You Want A Resolution!

When it comes to resolutions I think we are all masters, proclaiming them proudly as the clock strikes midnight with a glass of Fizz in our hand and Auld Lang Syne in our ears. ‘I will never drink again’, my friend Billy announced last week.  ‘So you are not going to finish that beer then?’ I asked as I reached for the rest of his beverage. In the office we have all declared our long lists of abstinence and our healthy new indulgences. Mine were the usual, more water andRead More

Sometimes, no matter how much we know about our loved ones, we struggle when it comes to buying gifts for them, whether it be at Christmas or for their birthdays, it is a struggle!
