Beautiful, simple and affordable. The back story makes us fall in love even more.

Make your dining experience a little more luxury and enjoyable with Butter products – ethical soft tableware made in East London.

They say;

Founded by partners Alex and Ed, Butter exists for a generation who want to make a house a home, but won’t be able to buy their own for years to come. We aim to create homeware that brings a little bit of joy and will follow you wherever you go.

Our story began in lockdown, tired of using and disposing of paper towels at every meal we looked for a sustainable alternative. Our problem was the napkins on the market were either achingly dull or cripplingly expensive. We struck on producing classic table linen that could lift any meal.

Founded by Swede Anna Sjostrom Walton in 2017, Chalk & Moss is an online homeware store and blog focusing on Biophilic Design.

The term biophilia means love of life or living things. The term was first used in 1964 by psychologist Erich Fromm, defining it as “the passionate love of life and all that is alive”. It was popularised by biologist Edward O Wilson in 1984, who in his book “Biophilia” refers to “an innate and genetically determined affinity of human beings with the natural world.”

The online store is full or gorgeous Scandinavian inspired products including handmade furniture, ceramics and printed linens. This carefully curated collection is all ethically sourced and put together to enhance your wellbeing and lifestyle.

‘So called Biophilic design achieves wellbeing by reconnecting us to nature through the spaces we occupy. This is the umbrella for my approach. It can easily be translated to our own homes through aspects of green design

We saw this look grow in popularity last year, and it’s continuing this year. Focusing heavily on independent makers and designers but also handmade, hand woven products.

Move away from mass produced factory homeware and look at handcrafted goods. The detail and time spent making them is what appeals, and every piece becomes unique.

Soft furnishings is a a great place to start with fringes, raw edges and heavy adornment on cushion covers and throws.

Wicker, rattan and woven furniture is having a huge comeback – Habitat has just launched a new collection of rattan furniture, with John Lewis going for a woven look with their range. The Leia range of outdoor dining furniture has a fishermans rope weave on its chairs and sofas.
