Our New Vendor Lineup for 2018
A synergy of nature and craft, the refined textures of our rugs are elevated by the raw materials we choose. We only use wool from high on the Tibetan plateau, wool so rich in natural lanolin that it is oily to touch. Our spinners, weavers and dyers handling it with reverence to retain its extraordinary properties.
Design is at the heart of everything we do from our experienced in-house studio to external talents with whom we collaborate; visionary designers who have blazed a trail in their respective fields of fashion, design or architecture.
We understand that selecting a rug is a process too - a personal journey - that takes time, but is well worth the wait.
George Smith has become synonymous with beautifully crafted furniture. Every sofa, chair, chaise and stool is lovingly made in our workshops in the North of England. George Smith, the early nineteenth century furniture maker, is still a strong influence in the way we make and design our furniture. Equally, we are driven to make contemporary pieces relevant for our lives today.
Good design and craftsmanship are key to great furniture and we continue to use the best possible materials to achieve our aims.
