     Ed Barker at Michaelis Boyd Architects needed a large quantity of green chairs for the new Giraffe restaurant which opened in Bath recently, and we were more than happy to help. The chairs they selected are vintage Tolix cafe chairs, which were brought over from France. Tolix chairs are very much sought after these days for their great style and simplicity. We think they look fantastic in their new setting, and if you happen to be in the Bath area, we recommend you give the chairs (and the food of course) a try!





Whilst walking around the shop, we  noticed that we have obtained what could potentially become a small vintage zoo! Genuine butterfly specimens behind glass, 1970s Gazelle ceramics, and many others, including a rare barn owl in its' original display case. Have a look, and perhaps you may find a new friend to take home with you!

With the Royal Wedding approaching, we thought of some great gift ideas that we'd love to share with the soon-to-be newlyweds.  Of course these items would look equally grand in your home, be it a palace or a studio flat! Some of these items are one-offs, made especially to celebrate, so don't miss out!

The image above is a giclee print by Keith Haynes available in 2 sizes, £85 and £115 - limited edition of only 20! This 1970's upcycled chest of drawers by Lucy Turner has a very special detail on the white drawer. Check out the close-up photo!





     This vintage style tin crown would look great in your garden!



     This antique ivory chess set would certainly make a for a special royal gift...


     Or you could be enjoying your tea in these vintage Coronation mugs whilst watching the festivities on April 29th...


     And last but not least, we have a few different designs of union jack trunks for storing all of your commemorative pieces, and who couldn't do without a flag or two? We have some very special vintage examples stored away that we will be bringing out very soon.
