This photography took place in four locations all of which we had used before and loved so much we went back for more! We started in Belmont House near Salisbury which has fabulous large rooms and a very friendly dog, Bede. The second location was Fosse Barn near Malmesbury, Wiltshire which has lots of space with lovely big windows to let lots of light in. Our third location was in Sherborne, Dorset just down the road from Myakka HQ in Wincanton. This is an unusual house with tongue and grove walls and made of corrugated iron. Our fourth and final location was Bazeley House in Micheldever; set in the beautiful Hampshire countryside and has some interesting angles to make use of, as well as a very photogenic hairy lurcher, Monty. All four houses have lovely gardens that we really tried to make use of whenever the sun was shining!
The team worked hard over six days to take as many photographs as possible capturing the natural grain detail and colour of the wood of our furniture as well as taking pictures of some new accessories. The new catalogue will be ready in September and will feature additional pieces in our Mallani, Hathi, Thakat, Gypsy, Lyme, Coast and Surin ranges and great new accessories too…watch this space for more details!
Once again, we worked with the very talented photographer David McDowall who we have worked with now for a number of shoots. We always try hard to capture the detail of the furniture in a real setting so it can take more time to capture the perfect image, with lots of prop swapping in the process!
Our design and creative team are now busy working hard to turn all their lovely images into a beautiful catalogue full of exciting new pieces designed especially for you. Don’t miss out… if you’re not already on the Myakka mailing list, make sure you sign up so you’re included in the first mailing of the new catalogue hot off the press in September.
