  • Do you love fireplaces? We do! It's not only the heat they emit but the smell and sound of the wood burning. Fire hits all of the 5 senses! If you are wondering where touch comes in write to us and start a conversation :)

  • We are not perfect and sometimes lose faith and get completely stuck. Apart from taking a break to gain a bit of distance, my advice is to go back to basics to regain that spark! If you feel stuck or unsure where to take your interiors project, write to us!

  • 5 places where to find perfectly imperfect pieces:

1. Candelabro in Madrid
This is the perfect example of a perfectly imperfect supplier, mixing antiques and contemporary pieces to create balanced and well thought out designs @barbara_candelabro

2. Silvera in London
This store has high-end contemporary furniture which we would use to balance out the antiques in our designs. Silvera leans towards natural and pure fabrics which we love using in our studio. @silveraofficial

3. Lidia Masllorens Art in Barcelona
Lidia Masllorens art has texture and is deeply romantic. We love procuring art like hers for clients to decorate walls and to finish off the look perfectly.

4. Abbatte in Madrid
Abbatte creates handmade textiles using only the finest of natural fibers. Their pieces are woven in the Cistercian abbey near Madrid and each piece is hand-woven by experienced local weavers, making pieces that will last a lifetime and are therefore completely in line with our philosophy of sustainability. @abbatte_

5. Puckhaber Antiques in London
Puckhaber Antiques has amazing pieces which we absolutely love. Take this chair for example which is slightly leaning to one side – this little quirk is what makes it special to us – that and the amazing craftsmanship in making it, its history and the prime wood material! @puckhaberdecor
