A weekend sourcing trip to Brighton produced these brilliant finds..
A sourcing trip to Brighton is always exciting since both my mother and I grew up there. It's one of our favourite places in the UK for inspiration with it's eclectic mix of people and its distinctive creative vibe. As well as visiting some of the local delights such as Bills produce store for lunch and taking a quick dip in the sea we were hard at work sourcing pieces for our collection. Here are some of our brilliant finds. I hope you'll be excited about them as we are....
A decorative delight..
This large and bulbous blown green glass carboy was originally used for fermenting wine. The neck is signed "VIRESA". It is beautifully shaped and the colour is bottle green. This is a brilliant object to be used in a number of decorative ways.
Antique woods mix and match...
This French antique pine desk and English antique oak chair make a great piece together. The vintage bird cage was found on a sourcing trip in Sussex a few weeks ago..
This unusual mirror mounted on to oak and ceramics caught our eye. The mirror is largely distressed which really adds to its charm.
