There is just some thing about British style and design, is not there? I’m significantly from an specialist and of program it is not a monolith, but to me it’s about shade, sample, coziness, and a sure unstudied effortlessness…rattan, chintz, and stripes…rich history, touches of whimsy, brown furniture…brass beds, scalloped lampshades… it is just every little thing I love at the instant. My Instagram feed has slowly and gradually but definitely been completely taken more than by British designers these times, and in the process I have began becoming common with a good deal of wonderful British style and design manufacturers. In this article are some favorites who I would like would hop throughout the pond and open merchants in NYC! 

Pooky Lighting

I discovered Pooky Lights on Instagram by means of Louise Roe and I really like their things! They have lamps of all sorts as well as a enormous variety of patterned, scalloped, and pleated lampshades, so you can genuinely blend and match and make a little something exceptional. The major attract for me is that they have the only rechargeable lamps I believe I’ve ever found that I like. Rechargeable lamps are brilliant – for a bookshelf, a hallway, a aspect table floating in the middle of a room, a mantel…just about everywhere where by you may well not have obtain to a plug or you never want the cords around. Why there are not quite a few more great rechargeable lamps floating all around out there on the Internet, I do not realize. A hole in the industry, rife with opportunity! But anyway, Pooky is terrific. I got their Phileas rechargeable lamp and matched it with one particular of their cream pleated lampshades, and I’m just so in really like. It’s specifically what I needed in my hallway wherever there are no plugs, and the petite measurement fits correctly on my small antique bookshelf. 

Matilda Goad

Matilda Goad has this wonderfully vibrant, whimsical, quintessentially British fashion, and it’s just delighted and pleasurable. She’s ideal recognised for her signature scallop lampshades, but she also has super rather candles, attractive ceramic pieces, colorful planters, and much far more. I wish I had will need of an ice bucket due to the fact I severely adore this rainbow 1. 

Sarah K. Models

I am head around heels in love with Sarah K. Models! They have the prettiest bedding and I simply cannot get ample of it – it’s ideal to mix and match. I ordered their pink ditsy cover and pillowcases and I Like them. I have normally experienced a thing for ditsy florals and so I jumped at these the minute I observed them (just after impatiently ready for weeks for them to occur back in stock). Their bedding has revealed up on the beds of Louise Roe and Tessa Foley, two of my favs, and I’m happy to report it’s just as excellent in individual as it appeared on the web. It’s actually comfy and wonderful, and the ruffles make me so happy! I have a US full dimension bed and duvet cover, and the British isles King suits completely. In addition to the broad wide range of bed linens – some patterned, some extra basic, some scalloped – they also have other property, bath, and eating objects that are just as quite. 

Pentreath and Corridor

Certainly in appreciate with this charming store, established in 2008 by the super gifted British designer Ben Pentreath and remarkable decorative artist Bridie Hall. I was lucky more than enough to be equipped to take a look at the shop when I was in London a million yrs back and I am dying to go back again! It is these types of a lovely minimal place and occurs to be positioned on the most charming concealed away road. Recently I eventually splurged on his Ionic Column candlesticks – I’d been eyeing them for the longest time and I’m so glad I finally took the plunge. They’re even a lot more excellent in human being than I was expecting! They surface to be out of inventory or just not on the web-site anymore, which is devastating, but they nonetheless have a lot of other definitely pretty candlesticks and colored candles available. The Alphabet Brush Pots are a signature item and they also have a extensive choice of paper merchandise, lampshades, tableware, and even furniture. I would like we had a retail outlet like this in the US! 

Candle Flair

I talked about Candle Flair in a recent post but just have to give them another shout out. I Adore their lovely candles – the hues, the shapes…cannot get enough. 

Sharland England

This is Louise Roe’s homewares firm so you know I’m a total fangirl. She designed seriously lovely rattan parts with scallops and plenty of beautiful small particulars, and they’re just so charming and flexible. Each and every space can advantage from a contact of rattan! She’s also promoting antiques on the web site. Ideal now there are a range of antique wood chairs with cushions created out of pretty fabrics from British isles favs like Soane Britain, Penny Morrison, Veere Grenney, and other folks. 1 or two of these chairs would increase so significantly character to any place. 

The Lacquer Company

I have been obsessed with The Lacquer Enterprise for a even though now and the only reason I haven’t still taken the plunge on one of their signature Belles Rives trays is since I just can’t decide on a colour – they’re all much too good! I have noticed them in human being at KRB and they are just soaked in wonderful lacquer colour – actually even additional beautiful than anticipated. They also have lamps, mirrors, furnishings, desk components and additional. 

Hum London

In the latest yrs I have realized the electrical power of a hanging lampshade, and Hum London is a wonderful source. Established by two sisters through lockdown, Hum London does whimsical, vibrant hand-painted lampshades in a selection of enjoyment, eye-catching patterns. Every single lampshade is 1 of a type and would incorporate this sort of personality to any lamp!  


No surprises here – I have turn into a substantial enthusiast of Penny Morrison and Soane Britain, and hope to integrate materials from these providers into my new condominium! I’m also imagining of using Veere Grenney’s Folly on my dining chairs. It reminds me of a material my Mother applied in our residence developing up and I really love it!
