Simple Shape

I am so pleased to share Simple Shape with you today; the best of British and Irish crafted products for the home. You know you have found something special when everything is either woven, knitted, plaited, sewn, thrown or shaped by established craftspeople and emerging makers. As Helen Ogersby, who founded Simple Shape just a few weeks ago, says: “This first collection is conceived to live alongside the things you already own, they are things with integrity that stand the test of time, heirloom pieces that will age gracefully, wear in, not wear out, and that will be passed to children and grandchildren.”

Just take a look for yourselves…

    Blue things do not go in my kitchen. They do not.
    So why do I absolutely need all these powder blue ceramics now??

      This made me giggle, Sara. I immediately had to get on to your IG to check out your kitchen and I haven’t stopped swooning since. I NEED YOUR KITCHEN! xx p.s. I think your ktichen needs some powder blue action.
