It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a room in possession of a good sense of style, must be in want of a wastepaper bin.

This literary bin features writing and images from Jane Austen’s notebooks, which we have used with the permission of the British Library. The text is from her History of England, written when she was 16, illustrated by her sister with miniature portraits. This bookish, fun and quintessentially English design conjures up book-lined libraries, quirky eclecticism and antique charm. This design is part of our decoupage collection with sides delicately painted with gold leaf giving an elegant touch.

Dimensions : 22 x 22 x 29 cm (W, D, H)

Wood craft from Spain - Our wooden range has a strong European design heritage. The patterns are sourced from young designers in Spain, Italy and France, who draw inspiration from the dreamy English countryside, the romantic Neo classical architecture of Greece and the glamour from the swinging Gatsby days.

Together with the use delicate techniques including decoupage (the layering of fine quality paper onto wood and sealing with layers of lacquer), gilding (the use of gold and silver leaf painting) and creative hand painting effects.

The fine hand finishes make each piece slightly different and gives depth and interest to the original pattern

The workshop that makes our wooden pieces is in Madrid, Spain it has a long-standing partnership with a charity that helps young people and adults with learning disabilities spend time learning traditional skills and allowing giving them support for independent living.

All the wood used is sustainably sourced.
