Representing the essence of nature, Eden brings together classic design with a characterful finish to create a pared back style, perfect for both country and urban homes. Its earthy tones and tactile materials help us to feel part of the natural world, creating calm and inviting interiors. Timeless, simple finial designs combine perfectly with the rustic qualities of the wood to create a truly beautiful look, with a modern no-fuss aesthetic. Each of the five natural finishes have been carefully considered to allow the humble beauty of the Ash wood to bloom. The hand finishing of Eden ensures the smoothness and fine detail of the grain are highlighted to give the collection a warm heritage feel. Eden is hand finished by skilled craftsmen here in Great Britain, all the wood used in our Eden collection is sourced from forestry commission responsibly managed forests, to ensure sustainable use, conservation, restoration, and respect for the land and wildlife.

Not only is Eden made from wood sourced from forestry commission, responsibly managed forests, but we are delighted to have partnered with One Tree Planted, and for every Eden complete curtain pole set sold we will plant one tree. One Tree Planted are a non-profit organisation that is dedicated to global reforestation, and we are honoured to be working them.

New Museum Collection...

April 2023

Our much loved Museum collection has been refreshed to include a new finial and the New True Colours Bespoke Service. There are also some discontinuations to the existing range.

The updated collection is a sophisticated collection of six archive inspired finial designs, which capture the essence of quintessential English decoration, to epitomise timeless elegance, suited to both classic and contemporary surroundings. Hand crafted using the finest woods and traditional methods, all the wood used in our Museum collection is sourced from forestry commission responsibly managed forests, to ensure sustainable use, helping to protect global forests and habitation for animals and birds worldwide.

Museum is available in six colours, made up of classic neutrals and rich gilded finishes, which combine Dutch metal leaf with modern waxes to give a hard-wearing finish that stands the test of time, whilst offering strikingly opulent finishes with an air of quality.

Beautifully hand finished here in Great Britain by skilled craftsmen, Museum is available in diameters of 35mm, 45mm and 55mm to suit a variety of décors, with tracked wood pole corded and uncorded options available on 45mm and 55mm, for that extra dimension of versatility.

Museum is further enhanced by True Colours. A bespoke design service that allows your poles to be painted in an array of colours selected from a range of paint suppliers, for a truly unique finish and superior level of individuality and co-ordination. To protect your painted finish, we offer the option of a nylon strip as an addition. This is added to the top of your pole, so very discreet once the pole is in place, helping the rings to glide smoothly, whilst protecting your paint finish. We recommend the addition of this strip if your curtains are heavy or interlined.

Chanterelle, Siyuri and Malabar are the Newest collections for Autumn/Winter.

Take a step back into an era of grand historical country homes with Chanterelle, where interiors reflected treasured finds from world travels, status, and glamour. The collections is elegant and timeless, with a diverse handwriting, from painterly bird prints, classical embroideries, and soft textural weaves to traditional ikats and large scale geometrics. With a palette of colours ranging from the richer shades of Chintz, Auburn, Wineberry and Sapphire through to the chalky pastels of Mirage, Cameo and Mint the collection has a nostalgic quality which is sure to add warmth and depth to any interior.

Siyuri helps you create a look that is both simple yet decorative. Combining indulgent chinoiserie inspired patterns alongside elegant lattice designs and soft textures, Siyuri is a truly eclectic collection. Rich jewel tones suggest the exotic, whilst softer neutrals and pastel shades ensure the collection is endlessly versatile to suit every interior.

A rustic collection with a handcrafted feel, Malabar is inspired by the time-honoured skill of Indian block printing. Simple, honest designs printed onto 100% sustainably sourced slubbed cotton, picture decorative leaves, scrolling vines, ogee prints and simple geometrics. A mix and match collection in fun shades, from traditional batik blue, pimento red, and henna to more modern bright like pistachio and quince, Malabar creates perfectly layered schemes.

June 2022
