Best of British for Autumn

25 October 2011

We're very proud to be British and as we've said before it runs through everything we do - especially our sofas, which are all lovingly handmade right here on our home shores. So we thought we would take our passion for all things British to the next level by bringing you our personal favourite British products for this autumn.


Chicken Egg Cosy by Charlotte Macy Textiles

Egg Cosie

Which do you think came first - the chicken or the egg? You can ask this question to yourself endlessly with these fun egg cosies by Charlotte Macy Textiles. This small textile and homewares company is based in the Cotswold countryside with all products being made by hand using cottons and linens sourced from within the UK.


½ Pint Tea Mugs by Emma Bridgewater

Emma Bridgewater

There is something quintessentially British about homewares brand Emma Bridgewater and it is something that runs through the core of their company. All their pottery is lovingly made in their factory in Stafforshire and a country cottage isn't complete without some of this in the cupboard. And as the evenings start to get shorter, there's no better time to curl up with a cup of tea and a good book (we recommend on the sofa).


Bateau Bath by Catchpole and Rye


There's nothing quite like a soak in the bath after a long day - especially when it's cold outside. And what better place to do it than in this gorgeous cast-iron Bateau Bath by Catchpole and Rye. All their baths are made in their Kent foundary and are available in a range of finishes. Another great British company.


Throws by Bronte at Home


These beautiful wool throws are made by Bronte and they are the perfect companion for a night in on the sofa. They are one of the last mills in the UK who continue to complete all processes on one site - dyeing, blending, carding, spinning, weaving and finishing so that makes these throws extra special. And luckily for you, we always have a few for sale in our showroom so you can make your new sofa extra comfy.
