home: featured [ Atkin & Thyme ]
This lovely interiors brand is a great find.
Atkin & Thyme has a relatively small but well curated selection of furniture, lighting, seating & mirrors.
We particularly love their sideboards and chest of drawers.
‘We travel far and wide to source our unique collection of furniture and home accessories, selecting only beautifully crafted pieces made from high quality materials. The artisans we work with make them in limited, low volume batches, which means you won’t find our designs in run-of-the-mill high street shops’

With lots of handmade goods from all over the world, Patina changes its lines regularly which means you can get yourself something limited & exclusive.
