One of the best parts of this job is unpacking the gorgeous new arrivals every season and this month has been no exception. Our collection for Autumn sees lots of brand new products including furniture as well as accessories. Plenty of supersoft throws, cushions and rugs to cosy up with, my favourite of which have to be our bestselling Kuba Berber Rugs which we now have in two bigger sizes. Supersoft as well as right on trend for any Scandi inspired interior, I’m coveting one for in front of the fireplace – all I need to do now is persuade the puppy not to eat it (any tips most welcome!)
I often get asked about the origins of our Hungarian Furniture and our relationship with our lovely suppliers. We have been lucky enough to be working with the same family in Hungary now for some years. A traditional operation, they source our pieces from local village stores, pharmacy’s, homes and event convents in mainly rural areas. The majority date back to the late 1800’s and early 1900’s up to the 1930’s. During this period this style of furniture was very common – every village had a village shop and every shop would be fitted out with wooden cabinets. In later years these would be replaced with modern shop fit outs so there is a good supply of these original pieces to be found. Employing only expert craftsmen and using traditional methods the family business restores each piece lovingly for us including painting to our specification. We think the results are beautiful and quite unique.
