Jolly striped tiles, Danish inspired painted tables and an organic, sustainable bed. Here are the products that caught my eye this week
Interior Designer Birdie Fortescue has added new accessories and lighting to her collection. With travel off the agenda last year, Birdie visited the world via books and social media for inspiration, resulting in an eclectic mix of periods and designs from across the globe.
Fair trade woven wall baskets (shown at the top) are made from braided palm leaves by female artisans in Nagaland. Available in two sizes.
Also new is Birdie’s first capsule collection of furniture inspired by mid-century Danish design. The bespoke Wensum tables are designed and made in Norfolk and include this side table in Oil Green.
Devon-based British bed and mattress manufacturer, Naturalmat keeps sustainable methods and materials at the forefront of everything it does. The brand ethos is to design responsibly and resourcefully using only organic, natural products. Appledore is a new bed, a contemporary take on an oversized daybed with a frame made from raw hardwood, standing on timber legs with a gently curved low headboard.
The upholstered headboard has been filled with organic coir – a fibre extracted from coconut husk – recycled denim and organic wool making it both comfortable and entirely natural. Handmade in Devon with FDC certified unvarnished beech, the Appledore is available in Naturalmat’s GOTS organic house linen or its curated range of cottons, linens, wools, chenilles and velvets.
The tiles can be laid horizontally or vertically to create continuous lines that add length or width to a space, or laid in alternate 90-degree directions to create a contemporary patchwork effect.
