Graham and Green join forces with Crown paints and the Royal College of Art

Sarah Seaton-Burridge won the competition with her witty interpretation of the traditional kitchen chair. She has transformed it into a clever, multi-functional storage piece. Laura Amstein came in second place with her psychedelic, retro sideboard inspired by the traditional technique of marbling.

We are just back from an afternoon out in Central London where we were judging the winners of the "Crown Brantiques" project. Crown has partnered with the Royal College of Art School of Fashion and Textiles for the third year running and this year we are thrilled to be the chosen retailer of the winning pieces.
The students were asked to design a range of 'up-cycled' furniture for the home, using a range of Crown paints to give each piece a new lease of life. With the trend for up-cycling gaining momentum amoungst designers and consumers alike we are exctited to be involved in a project with such a positive message. The winning pieces will be launched in our shops next Spring. If you want to get your mits on a piece of original, innovative furniture then watch this space.

We're participating in VOGUE.COM's Fashion's Night In.

On Monday 1st November, VOGUE.COM is holding Fashion Night In, an online shopping event which is the perfect reason to sit back, kick off your heels and spoil yourself as they bring you the best that online shopping has to offer with a night of exciting and exclusive digital fashion events.
Following the fantastic success of Fashion's Night Out in September, they've taken it online to raise even more money for KidsCo. - offering one-off designer collaborations, expert styling advice, on-the-night collection launches, goodie bags, competitions and bespoke films. We're getting involved in this event by offering a 10 per cent discount from 5pm until midnight and £1 from each order placed will be donated to KidsCo. It's the perfect opportunity to do some Christmas shopping, whilst giving something back.

A weekend break to Vienna as seen through the eyes of our press manager Lizzie.

This weekend I visited the Austrian capital of Vienna with a few friends.I wasn't really sure quite what to expect but I was more than pleased with the choice of city getaway. Having been ranked a few years ago as the best place for quality of life, I can see why. The people were warm and friendly, the transport system easy to use, the streets weren’t overcrowded and the schnitzel – well it was delicious! It’s a place you can spend hours wandering around, admiring the Baroque and Romanesque architecture, drinking coffee in cafes and stumbling across amazing vintage shops. For some alternative culture we visited the Frida Kahlo retrospective at the Bank Austria gallery, which was a visual treat and we finished the day on the spectacular giant ferris wheel at the Prater – followed by some local schnapps! Cue headache for flight home….Elizabeth Kelly – Press Manager
