Little book of Eco

The world of interiors is one of the most collaborative. Appreciation for quality, design, originality, and positive work ethic is one of the most genuine. It’s one of the most inspirational communities. It oozes unfettered talent, vision and creativity. We meet so many amazing people all the time. We love to collaborate and we love nothing more than to introduce our customers to new brands, people and products that they might not otherwise discover.

Bespoke Lampshades

Close

By Marie

By Marie is our bespoke lampshade lady. Independent and based in South West London. Every single lampshade is custom made to order and professionally hand-made regardless of size, shape or cost.

Marie who studied ‘Surface Pattern Design for Fashion & Interiors’ at college, has always loved drawing and painting from a young age. All the designs you see in the showroom are lovingly hand-drawn and hand-painted by Marie before being printed onto fabric. From bicycles, to parrots, to pineapples and dinosaurs to just plain colour, you can design their own lampshade specifying its size, fabric and lining to exactly meet your needs.

There is an overwhelming 60,000 combinations of lampshade colour, size and pattern to choose from. As well, each standard lampshade ring has been coated and finished in white to prevent rusting for the highest-quality result. All By Marie lampshades are handmade in the UK too.

We sell By Marie lampshades. We have a few on show in the showroom for sale or you can order in the specification you would like. We can advise on size, colour and lining. We love in particular the metallic linings in gold and copper. We can also order lampshades that use our paint colours too for the perfect match.

Wallpapers & Fabrics

Juliet Travers

An astonishing talent, Juliet’s wallpapers and fabrics are divine. They also happen, rather serendipitously to look heavenly put with our paint colours. So, we created a display in the showroom and it makes scheming customer homes a zillion times more fun.

London based, Juliet studied printed textiles for interior furnishings at the prestigious College of Art in Edinburgh. Working thereafter at de Gournet gave her invaluable experience in luxury home interior furnishings. Then, in 2013, keen to unleash her own creative ideas, she launched a debut collection at Decorex. Her work is based on her own incredible hand-drawn designs. Juliet uses a high-quality specialist printing press, where each layer of tone and colour has to be separated and engraved into individual copper cylinders, to capture the exquisite level of detail in her work.

Her subject matters are inspired by family connections, in particular with Zimbabwe and Tanzania. From kudu, to elephants through to flamingoes and zebras, her Safari and Albion collections are awash with nature’s finest beasts. Not forgetting home-grown wonders such as the squirrel, the Highland Fling cow and the humble bumblebee. Many designs feature metallic touches which never fail to delight our customers and in some cases even make them swoon.

We have wallpaper and fabric samples from both collections in the showroom, which you can also buy direct from us (who better to recommend how many rolls you need than our decorating team?!) and we also have Juliet’s stunning forestry-commission approved stationary for sale in the showroom. Fabric covered notebooks, luxury wrapping paper and matching note cards enabling everyone to buy a little bit of Juliet’s magic for their home.

Sarah Beech

Ottomans

Sarah individually designs handmade storage ottomans. To keep her carbon footprint down she too uses British sourced materials. The 100% wool lining is from a Yorkshire mill. The feet are hand carved in Leicestershire and prior to upholstery the ottoman boxes are made from sustainable sourced hardwood in London.

When discussing the upholstery fabric choices with her clients, whilst there are infinite possibilities worldwide she prefers to promote British made upholstery fabrics where possible.

All named after her family members, her best-selling Ottoman is the large Winnie followed very quickly by the small Arthurs. Her Ottomans have been declared to be the most comfortable by none other than the family dog who likes to fall fast asleep on top of their Winnie!

Maitland & Poate

Antique & Cement Tiles

You will never have met a man more enthusiastic and passionate about tiles as founder, Chris. One of the reasons why we love Maitland & Poate so much. Importers of discovered antique tiles and producers too to handmade cement tiles, we love their innate ethos which is to reclaim, restore and bring back to life original tiles.

This family run and London based business was not a planned venture. When Chris and his wife were sourcing old tiles from sun-baked Andalusia for their own home renovation, they became so obsessed, they walked away with 23 tonnes of old tiles which is how it all started. Now boasting the largest collection of antique encaustic tiles in the UK, there is no where better to go for true authentic original floors. The tiles also happen to work rather marvellously with our paint colours.

Lee Borthwick

Mirror Tapestrie

Lee ethically sources natural materials and mirror and skilfully and meticulously combines them to harness the peace and serenity of nature. Each piece of artwork and tableware is uniquely crafted by Lee creating the perfect meditative centrepiece for any space.

We love Lee because her work is stunningly unique and it brings the outside in. All her timbers are British and come from sustainable mills. Raw woods and branches are from local tree surgeons working on sustainable forestry projects or sourced from storm damaged trees.

‘Mirror Tapestries’ is her signature product and one of her best-selling. Her biggest Tapestry so far features over 1600 mirror! We love her kitchen boards Leopard, Hairy and Grain too. The most perfect cheese boards.
