Springtime styling - indoors and out

Help your garden and home bloom this springtime

Even though the weather may have been somewhat erratic lately - or perhaps because of it - we are firmly embracing all thoughts of spring. We’ve put a Spring Collection together on the website to help you make conscious buying choices that not only welcome in a bright new season, but that will look good and last for years to come.

Whether you can make full use of it quite yet, this is the perfect time to plan garden seating. When it comes to choosing outdoor seating, be guided by the size of space you have and the areas that catch the most sunshine. If you have room for it, place seating in an area that catches the morning sun and a separate seat to catch the evening sun - both lovely times to enjoy some quiet time outdoors, soaking up the benefits of being in nature. 


Preloved pieces for vintage style

Our preloved Teak Companion Bench is perfect for terraces, patios or corners that catch the sun. Also known as a Love Seat or Jack and Jill Bench, two seats are joined at the central armrest with a handy table, so you can sit and enjoy a morning coffee - or evening sundowner - and have somewhere to rest your drink.

Our Teak Garden Bench boasts a traditional design and classic styling, perfect for enhancing with cushions and throws for outdoor comfort. Alternatively, our Chippendale Style Garden Bench comes complete with a cozy seat cushion, and offers a unique lattice back, ideal for sunny terraces or patios.

Equally versatile is our Teak Banana Bench, which is made from beautiful, sustainable wood. With a curved top rail, slatted seat and back, this curved bench offers a comfy seat without taking up too much room. It’s also durable enough to stand up to the worst weather conditions, so can be left outdoors all year round.   


Add pots of style and colour

Surround your seating with spring flower-filled garden pots and planters. Choose from our collection of terracotta plant pots, available in a selection of shapes and sizes. The Clovelly Terracotta Planter has a lovely aged finish and pale pink hue that sets off blooms and foliage beautifully. Paired with a Galvanized Wire Basket Planter, classic Terracotta Plant Pots can be stylishly elevated to another level on tablescapes, indoors and out.

Turn to naturalistic Plant Pots and Vases, teamed with faux botanicals or fresh flowers for an instant spring vibe indoors. There is nothing more spring-like than our Faux Blossom Stem, which is full of delicate, white flowers. And for those blink-and-you-miss-it magnolia moments, our gorgeous Faux Magnolia Stem will go on and on looking pretty in pink. Team with our delicate-looking Frond Vase or vintage-style earthenware Olga Jar, which adds a sense of warmth and texture with or without blooms.

Create an inside view

For indoor plants, bring a touch of the outside in with our gorgeous Vintage Style Herb Pot, which is great for displaying real or faux plants, or for trailing foliage. The herb pot is full of texture and the distressed finish adds a sense of natural earthiness. Our Pie Crust Plant Pot also has wonderful vintage charm; available in two sizes it has a lovely scalloped edge which resembles - you’ve guessed it - the crust of a homemade pie.

Looking for a showstopper? The elegant shape and rustic, aged finish of our Marseille Urn works every time. Made for larger floral displays, this piece looks great on its own, but really comes to life when bursting with blooms. Ideal for dried, faux or fresh flowers (you will need a waterproof container for fresh stems).

At the other end of the scale, our clear glass Stem Vase features a pretty, wirework 'lid' with a scalloped edge - a charming addition to assist in arranging shorter stemmed flowers.


Details that make a difference

Colour and texture are a vital part of our spring mix - our new, bright and beautiful Fair Trade Woven Baskets are handcrafted in Guatemala using repurposed plastic. Perfect for a trip to the farmer’s market or local plant sale, they are just as handy for picnic or beach trips, as well as colourful home storage. 

Small details make the perfect finishing touch, creating a vignette or livening up a table or mantelpiece display. Our Mushroom LED Lamp, available in green or dusk marbled glass, is a unique way to illuminate dark corners or shelves. With no cord to worry about, this sculptural light can be placed anywhere for an instant update. 

For candlelight fans, our Pressed Floral Glass Hurricane lamp, with dried pink flowers in the textured glass, looks charming paired with a taupe, honey, or olive-coloured Macon Pillar Candle.  


Create interest with shape and texture

Look to our Totana Vase, which has lovely brushstroke details, for interesting texture and fill it with colourful blooms. Robust and beautiful, it looks fabulous teamed with fresh or faux  seasonal stems.

Our Tamil Vase makes a lovely table centrepiece with its characterful delicate patterns and surface irregularities. Perfect for dried and faux stems, you can pop a clean jam jar inside to hold fresh flowers too.

Featuring a tapered silhouette and unique texture, our new Clotilde Vase will add a touch of visual intrigue to any space. We love the terracotta sunset hues of this vase - they blend seamlessly with any palette and style.  

Fragrance to evoke the best of the season

To replenish both space and mind this season we look to our fabulous range of True Grace Tinned Candles and Room Diffusers. Wild Mint and Orchard both evoke the crisp freshness of spring air, while the herbal mix of woody rosemary with earthy eucalyptus is an exhilarating room fragrance - a personal favourite. Seashore, another in the beautifully packaged Room Diffuser range is the ideal way to create an evocative sense of the outdoors inside and the perfect finishing touch.
