I am clearing lots of stuff from my home and putting it in our shop. I need to downsize and have to admit that I am something of a hoarder. So, new year, new start.
This week I am featuring a pine farmhouse style table that was painted by Rachel and I with the help of artist Sabina Rose. Sabina used to work with us and over the years she contributed many of her painting and needlework skills to my home.
The table seats six people and the decoration of it was influenced by Charleston the Sussex home of artists Duncan and Vanessa Bell and their friends. Their home was the country meeting place for the artists, writers and intellectuals known as The Bloomsbury Group. Charleston House and garden is a decorative jewel. It is open to visitors between April and October.
My Charleston table is stencilled with images adapted from fabric that I was given many years ago. You can buy the fabric at the Charleston shop. Apart from the odd scuff marks the table is still in very good condition and is now for sale at The Stencil Library shop. It's price is £180. Sorry, the stencil is not for sale but we do have other designs that would look good in a Charleston inspired setting. Just ask us and we will help you find them.
