Repro designer furniture

On March 31st, 2011 by .

Being able to afford designer furniture is not something many of us can do, especially in these tough times. Happily there is now an answer: Interior Addict have been running for around two years, selling high quality designer reproductions online. Two weeks ago they opened their very first showroom, on Commercial Street, Shoreditch.

“For some people, furniture is just a tool: a functional object to sit on, eat at or sleep in. But that’s not how we see things. You see, we’re addicts… Interior Addicts. We’re not just passionate about furniture design from the likes of Arne Jacobsen, Joseph Hoffman, Le Corbusier and Charles Eames… we’re absolutely, positively and utterly addicted to it.”

Selling only the finest reproduction pieces inspired by their favourite classic designers, they have our whole range available to buy on their website. Shoreditch is a beautiful area of London known for being a design hub, so why not make a day of it?

Royal Wedding shoot

On March 29th, 2011 by .

It’s been a weird few weeks, I went through quite a low and uninspiring stage recently as I felt as if the cold weather was never going to end. I find it so hard to be creative when you are feeling like that but now that Spring is on the way I seem to have found a new enthusiasm.

We have our Royal wedding job next week, shooting at a country house in Buckinghamshire and I can’t wait!  Below are the finished results.  We were going to sell the feature to a magazine (layout below) but we were a bit late shooting it and missed the deadline.  Instead, it was featured by Channel 4, My Deco and Your Wedding. It was such a fun shoot, my dear friend Jemma Watts took the photos and the cakes were all made by the very talented Kate at Pat-A-Cake, Pat-A-Cake.  Search for ‘Summer Garden Party’ to see the full range of images.



The set-up for the Royal Wedding shoot!

The next shoot is for The California Shutter Company which has been a long time in the planning. We are lucky as we have such a lovely location house.  I have shot here many times before and the owner (who is a stylist herself) is so accomodating.

We finished filming last week for 3M and are really happy with the video.

And then its off to Biarritz to visit my sister!!! Can’t wait!
