The Maison Bed is available in both double and king size.The exquisite renaissance-style bed takes centre stage in your master or guest bedroom. Charmingly crafted with the air of an heirloom, combining the character of a treasured antique with contemporary comfort. A sturdy slatted wooden base makes for superb slumber and the stylish panelling on the foot and headboard are crying out for vintage linens.

To coordinate with the bed the Maison 3-Drawer Cabriole Cabinet is the perfect companion. At home in any room, this solid mango cabinet has a delicately hand carved finesse that softens its lines and romances practical 3-drawer storage with a graceful and alluring elegance. Buy two Maison 3-Drawer Cabriole Cabinets and save £80!

The Maison Wardrobe is the perfect clothes tidy for your bedroom. Modelled on an antique armoire with pretty cabriole styling, our wardrobe is tailored to be practically perfect. A full width rail for hanging garments and extra space for folded items on a handy fixed shelf makes for effortless clothes storage. It arrives fully assembled and ready to be used and loved.

To help keep everything in its place the Maison 6-Drawer Chest has lovely deep drawers to keep everything organised. However and wherever you choose to use this six-drawer treasure chest, the beautiful curves and whispers of limewash on solid mango wood soften something so sensible into a sensual work of art.

Make getting ready in the morning a breeze with the Maison Dress Up Set, the perfect dressing table set. Live every day like a princess with our wonderful set comprising of the elegant Maison Dressing Table, Upholstered Stool and Dressing Table Mirror. Revel in fairytale charm with the scrolled, limewashed mango and its hazy harmonious hue. All three pieces coordinate beautifully to create a statement set you'll enjoy using morning and night.

Fernley & Nomad - new for Spring!

Wednesday, 8 March 2017

This spring we have introduced two new furniture collections, Fernley and Nomad. These two new ranges have been designed based on customer feedback and research, and have been in development for the last six months to make sure that every detail is right.

Fernley Collection – A timeless collection with verdant charm 
This new range contrasts softly distressed, sage green paint with mellow, waxed, natural wood.
Green by nature, as well as by colour, the range is handcrafted from sustainably sourced, solid reclaimed pine in Vietnam. Each characterful piece is completely unique, wearing its knots, nail holes and other imperfections from its previous life with pride.  Finishing touches are provided by the bevelled edges and burnished metal cup handles and pulls.

The range includes 10 individual furniture pieces, our favourites include the Fernley Hallway Organiser Bench, complete with open cubby holes, a two door cupboard, four burnished metal hooks and a wooden seat.  The Fernley Coffee Table is a neat way to store away every day clutter in the living room. It has an easy-to-get-to open shelf as well as a drawer. The Fernley Narrow Dresser shows off the reclaimed pine beautifully with two large shelved and a sideboard base.

Nomad Collection – Inspired by global travels
Crafted in India from solid mango wood, Nomad makes an original feature of hand-carved tribal patterns and characterful sawmill markings – with the details picked out in whitewash. Each piece is finished with a toasty burnt wax effect. Carved knobs and turned bun feet complete the look of these utterly unique, fairly traded Myakka exclusives.

This capsule collection currently includes 6 individual furniture pieces, some of our favourites include the Nomad Slimboy Chest of Drawers, complete with five useful drawers this piece would look as good in your bedroom as your living room. The Nomad Single Cupboard shows off the interesting carving detail and will provide you with plenty of storage space.

Take a look at all our new additions this spring here.

Don’t forget, we always like to hear customer suggestions and requests, some of our most popular furniture has been suggested by customers who needed something a bit different. Let us know at or on Facebook or Twitter.
