A November letter from my studio
This is the first in a series of Letters From My Studio. In each of my letters I will share news, product launches, behind the scenes and exciting upcoming projects. I hope you enjoy reading them!
What a busy month it’s been!
November began with my birthday and the gift of a wonderful studio companion in the form of a giant unicorn balloon. Here we are in the studio mid ottoman making.
This month marked the launch of my Cushion Collection! The beautiful new cushions have been lovingly handmade with one-of-a-kind Turkish Kilim rugs and backed with pure woven Irish linen. They have been filled with plump duck feathers and are the perfect addition to a sofa, armchair or bed. See the cushions here!
I also launched a curated collection of Vintage Kilim Rugs. The rugs were all sourced by me from Turkey and each one is unique. These exquisite woven artworks will bring colour and history into the home as each tells the story of the woman who wove it. See the rugs here!
Two weeks ago from my studio in South London we (my furniture and I) traveled north of the river for our first photo shoot. After a slight hiccup involving a flat tyre (!) the day ended with a stunning selection of images which are now online.
To coincide with the new pictures, the website has undergone a bit of a refurb and is now looking pretty smart!
From the Stars of Seven Dials to the Angels on Regent Street, London’s lights have now been lit and are heralding the countdown to Christmas! Incredibly it is less than a month away and so the search has now begun to find the perfect presents for family and friends. Looking for a unique idea? I might have just the thing!
Love, Issy x
I have always loved poetry and for a while now I have been looking for a way to incorporate it into my work. With every Letter From My Studio I will include a poem or extract that I love. My first choice is Teddy Bear by A.A. Milne. Like so many people, I grew up reading the wonderful words of A.A. Milne and this poem is one of the very best. What’s more it features an ottoman! So it seemed like the perfect pick. x
Grows tubby without exercise.
Our Teddy Bear is short and fat,
Which is not to be wondered at;
He gets what exercise he can
By falling off the ottoman,
But generally seems to lack
The energy to clamber back.
