I had looked at the Scumble Goosie website countless times and, on a recent trip to the Cotswolds, stopped in.
Scumble Goosie sells hand made Gustavian style furniture using solid sustainable hardwood, either painted or ready to paint, that never looks dated. From the website:
"The Gustavian style blends marvelously well with all types of interiors, from northern castles to cottages, from town houses to Versailles where it originated.
Pared down, refined and harmonious, the Gustavian style is in fact a Swedish interpretation of some of the late eighteenth & early nineteenth century French designs in Versailles, inspired from a number of original pieces and from contemporary drawings."
It totally lived up to my expectations and I just love the fact that you can paint the furniture yourself or, if you're not feeling brave, they'll do it for you!
They also had a new collection of cachepots, key racks, waste bins, trays, letter racks, trugs and peg rails ready to paint. Ooh, the possibilities!
Have a sweet day!
