We're rounding up our favourite moments of 2019, from our award-winning Main Avenue garden at Chelsea Flower Show to team tree planting for National Tree Week. With the launch of two brand-new lighting ranges and the usual helping of steam bending, we look back on this year's highlights.
January, February, March
Let’s start where 2019 began – with our New Year’s resolutions! As 2019 stretched out before us, we spoke to founder Tom Raffield about some of the commitments we wanted to make for the brand-new year. These included becoming a plastic free workforce and continuing to support the biophilic interior design movement.
The first glimpse of Springtime sun and warmth saw us prepare for one of our favourite moments of the year: our appearance at RHS Chelsea Flower Show. We returned to Main Avenue this year with our Force of Nature Garden Stand, aiming to promote a synergy between nature and human wellbeing. Our bespoke design went down a storm winning a 5 star trade stand award.
Our Tressa Planter, part of our outdoor Tressa Garden Range, which launched in May, was also a finalist for the RHS Garden Product of the Year judged by Dragon Den's Deborah Meaden.
Furthermore, some of our steam bent lighting pieces (including our Skipper and Urchin Pendants) once again featured in Raymond Blanc’s Jardin Blanc restaurant at RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2019. We also introduced a brand new range of colours for our upholstered furniture pieces - Candy Pink, Sea Grass and Hallingdal, joined our bestselling, Earth Silver.
Autumn kicked off with the launch of yet another new lighting range. The Cluster Range combined some Tom Raffield classics with a bold new aesthetic, as we suspended multiple lights from a top plate to create dynamic textures of light.
