The new catalogue which will be ready for early September and will feature new lines in the Mallani, Thakat, Hathi, Chandra and Surin ranges as well as more lines for our new for 2012 Orissa range. As well as the 30 new furniture lines we also have lots of new soft furnishings and accessories that will appear in the catalogue.
This year the photography took place in a lovely and unusual house in Sherborne, Dorset not far from us here in Wincanton. The house has original tongue and grove walls and ceilings all painted in pastel colours and a beautiful veranda that wraps right around the house that shows off the beautiful garden.
The shoot took place over five days with four of them in Sherborne and the final day here in the Myakka warehouse in Wincanton. For the second time we worked with photographer David McDowall who took some amazing pictures. Every photo shoot we do poses many difficulties such as trying to make it look like autumn in June, trying to show the grain and the detail of the wood and to reflect the true nature of the furniture as accurately as possible - this shoot was no different! Despite the difficulties and some rather fluctuating weather, we took some really good images that will look lovely in the new catalogue. As well as all the new furniture lines we also took photographs of many of our new soft furnishings and accessory ranges. All the images needed to be propped and dressed which made for one of our busiest photography weeks we have ever had, but one of our most successful.
The design and creative teams are now busy putting the autumn catalogue together, making it look as beautiful as possible ready for it to be posted out in September. If you’re not already on our mailing list and would like to receive a copy of our current catalogue, please click here
