RAINY DAYS...

DARK AND RAINY DAYS

Currently I have a strange fixation with all things warms and cosy - a tonic whilst the days are short, dark and rainy. My love of the month is the Saarinen Womb Chair. I just want to curl up in it, with a blanket granny-style over my knees, by a fire, with a book... is this too much to ask? (Oh and maybe a hot chocolate on the side?)

DECOREX 2014 - PART 2

FERMOIE

I do apologise for the delay in finishing my Decorex round-up for 2014 but I have had flu.. miserable.. and lost 2/3 weeks of my life which I'm busily catching up on..

It's been a while, but I'll just hop in my time machine and head on back........

At Decorex this year I officially found my 

Favourite Fabric of 2014.

I smiled - a lot - when I saw it, in this beautiful screen form, outside 

DANDYLION DESIGNS

I am ashamed to say that I had never come across this gorgeous company, since it was not one we dealt with at my previous place of work.

So, having gazed at this perky floral in all it's cheeky citrusy gorgeousness, I stepped inside. It is most certainly a fabric to dwell on over the coming darker months.

Many thanks to Jessica Fell, Creative Director, for telling me all about Dandylion.

For those of you who don't know, this company is based in Lancashire where the fabrics are also milled.

Certainly one that I will be keeping an eye on in the future.

Last time I blogged, I mentioned the wonderful Copper & Silk.

This week I must mention another fabulous lighting company, whose lighting was also spotted at Chelsea Harbour in the Zoffany window display a few weeks' before:

CURIOUSA & CURIOUSA



Here is Esther Patterson, the founder of this Derby-based company, which is committed to working with UK based craftspeople and suppliers. 

Truly covetable lighting.
