Our NEW design!

9th July 2014

Whilst in Paris this year, we decided that a new Paris inspired design would be perfect for our next product range. As Laura has just finished university, we decided now would be the perfect time for her to bring out her own line, from our Late 1800- Early 1900 French Archive. Having grown up in a textile centered environment with both her mum and granddad passionate about textiles, she is excited for the challenge. With years of involvement in the business, now is her time for the design aspect! From the age of 18 months old, our suppliers were calling her the ‘Managing Director!’

Here are some of our favourite spots to visit in Paris!

paris 1

The Arc de Triomphe followed by a walk down the Champs Elysees is an activity that must be done whilst in Paris- if you fancy some lovely macarons, visit ‘Ladurée‘ here, it is rather pricy- but the experience of being here is worth it!

paris 2

The ‘love lock’ bridge is one to visit- with urban myths stating if you lock a padlock on here then throw the key in the river, your wish will come true- and hopefully the ‘amour’ you share with the person you latch the padlock onto the bridge with- will be everlasting.

paris 3

The Notre Dame Cathedral, designed in a gothic fashion between the 12th to 14th centuries, is a beautiful spot to visit. Inside you can appreciate the architecture, and the stain-glass windows are amazing. The Romans build a religious building here previous to the Notre Dame’s construction- their temple was intended as a space for them to be able to worship Jupiter! In 1858, William Morris, Charles Faulkner and Philip Webb went to Paris together to study the art and architecture of the city. After spending time sketching Notre Dame Cathedral, they spent the next few days rowing down the Seine. It was at this time that Morris and Webb discussed their plans for a house for William and Jane Morris. This building was designed in 1859 and called Red House.

 

paris 5

The Basilica of the Sacré Coeur is an incredible chalk white church placed upon Montmartre Hill, and with its incredible panoramic views of Paris- on a clear day you can see up to 30km- it is well worth the 234 steps leading up to it! (Or, if you can’t walk the hill, there is a metro stop.)  Behind the church, down some narrow streets, there is the Place Du Tertre, or the artist’s square, where along with many tourist shops, there are also cafes from which you can watch the many artists painting the sights of Paris.

paris 4

The Lur Mur Des Je T’aime or ‘The Wall of I Love You’s’ wall is just down some steps from the Place Du Tertre, the mural is by Frédéric Baron and holds the words ‘I love you’ more than 1000 times in more than 300 languages. The colour on the wall are to represent pieces of a broken heart- as Baron wrote, “The bursts of color on the fresco represent the pieces of a broken heart, the heart of a humanity so often torn apart and which the wall tries to gather together.” The Wall attempts to bring different countries, languages and cultures together on one wall. 

paris

The Eiffel Tower, a great symbol of Paris, is a necessary place to visit. With its great architecture and an amazing display of structural engineering, it is an amazing place to visit- wether you go up the tower or not!

We are excited to release our new design, so keep checking back to see the release of the new and exciting product range!

🌷 William Morris month day 30 🌷 As we come near the end of Morris month, we’re celebrating with a fabric stack, full of beautiful licensed designs, which is your fave? 🌿 “Remember that a pattern is either right or wrong. It cannot be forgiven for blundering, as a picture may be which has otherwise great qualities in it. It is with a pattern as with a fortress, it is no stronger than its weakest point.”- William Morris 🤍
