Bet you didn’t know we export to the West Indies? We do indeed, from the Bahamas to Barbados and all the gorgeous islands in between. We love Caribbean style and have plenty of product that looks great in warmer climates; from Furniture to Faux Floral we have that tropical elegance you might be looking for.
We have been inspired by Architects and interior designs such as Oliver Messel for years. His style was very romantic and symmetrical, he loved to use pillars, lattice work and Baroque styles and he was famous for his wonderful outdoor living terraces. He was a theatrical Designer, and he liked to be involved with every detail, dictating even the colour schemes. His signature Messel green, a distinctive shade of sage with Barbados coral stone, has become as strongly associated with the Caribbean paired. Designers such as Nicolas Haslam have in recent years undated Messel interiors with great sympathy.
Rattan is trending so much now as it looks incredible paired with green to really give a natural feel. Used amazingly well at Alfresco Design; We also love Soane London and Chelsea textiles for adding texture to this style and Mind the Gap wallpaper for tropical prints, India Hick’s ‘Island Style’ is a great coffee table book for more ideas! If you’re looking for a holiday, Cobblers Cove in Barbados has just had a facelift and we must say it’s now so picture perfect. get inspired here

As more and more emphasis is being put on the carbon footprint of consumer goods, we are happy to share with you the process of some of our recycled product. Our new glass collection is made in the EU from locally sourced council glass, it is then fired and made into the most stunning pieces. If it fails the QC check it just gets put on the pile to be made again, therefore making it a zero waste product...does it get much better than that?
