I am really impressed by the manifesto of furniture company Loaf. Known for their stylish furniture and more recently accessories, they also ensure many of the products sourced are produced by small family companies in the UK, not just to be ethical but also because they believe that much of the best manufacturing of furniture in the world, is still home grown.
Here are some of my wish list items. I particularly love the artwork by local boy, Ben Lowe, which reminds me very much of the St Ives school of painting. It’s hard to find affordable artwork and the colours are muted enough to fit any colour scheme, while still being interesting and thought provoking enough not to look like soul less art work which has been purposely bought just for the colour match and nothing else.
