Easy Breezy Lime


We introduced a capsule collection of Lyme in Spring 2015 and since then the range has been going from strength to strength.  On Lyme's 1st birthday we thought we would tell you a little more about this Myakka exclusive collection.

The  Lyme collection  builds on the trend for painted and shabby chic style  furniture.  It has a comfortably worn and relaxed driftwood design finished with a soft limewash – bringing a touch of coastal decor into your home.

The Lyme range is hand crafted in India from mango wood, a truly sustainable hardwood: the mango tree is first grown for fruit production.  At around eight years, when it is past its commercial life for mango production, the tree is felled and the timber is crafted into furniture.

Alison from Boston sums up the style of the Lyme collection perfectly with her review for the Lyme Blanket Box...

''It looks exactly as in the picture. The quality is superb, very solid with all joints immaculate and hinges well aligned. The wood has a nice weathered appearance and looks quite rough but is actually planed very smooth. The look is carried through to the ironmongery which is unpolished. I was looking for something different, informal and quirky and this really fits the bill. I'm looking forward to showing it off.''

Peter from Newton Abbot explains the Lyme handles perfectly with his review of the Lyme Small Cabinet...

''The cabinet certainly blends in well. We were particularly enamoured with the drawer whose the handle is held on by rope and it pushes stows almost flush. The base of the drawer is surprisingly sturdy and it has an intriguing stop fitted to prevent it being pulled right out by accident. It was well packed for its long journey from the Indian subcontinent and it arrived on the day that was promised.''

Some of our favourite pieces from the Lyme collection include the Lyme Nest of 3 Tables which are perfect for your sofa side. The Lyme Blanket Box is perfect for the end of your bed thanks to it narrow proportions but generous storage capabilities. The Lyme Console Table would look great in the hallway providing useful and stylish storage.
