What do Mothers want for Mother’s Day?

Celebrating the #BeBoldForChange this International Women’s Day, we turn our thoughts to the one day dedicated to the women in our lives that matter most. Mothering Sunday, this year celebrated on 26th March, is the time to thank those special women in your life with a beautiful gift. But finding the right gift, balancing practicality and function with style and excitement can be tough.

There is a solution – choosing pieces that are designed and created by British designers, such as Garth Williams.

Subtle and Stylish

The gifts we give our mums, grandmothers, aunts and other special women in our lives should reflect them and their personality. And that’s why these Wire Weave Fairy Light lanterns make the ideal gift for someone who is effortlessly stylish, borne out of subtlety. These lanterns are available in three sizes thus making them the ideal solution for clustering together on tables or on a hearth.

The Beauty of Curves

Beautiful things are enhanced when they invite to be touched. And when it comes to this elegant Encore Stainless Steel Basket Bowl, the smooth curves demand to caressed. It has a taller but equally as curvaceous counterpart too.

Art Deco Loveliness

There are some styles that can be described as nothing else but simply iconic. Art Deco, also known as ‘style moderne’ was a decorative arts and architecture movement that sprang to life in the 1920s. By the 1930s, it was a major style choice in across the United States and Europe.

It is a firm favourite with many people today. It offers an uncluttered style, without being too minimal or lacking warmth. The detailing is exquisite, the lines clean and the overall look so very pleasing on the eye. Adding to an Art Deco interior design scheme is not hard when you comes across quality pieces such as these Art Deco styled mirrors. Beautifully crisp in their appearance, these mirrors will look attractive in any setting.
