Unveiling Nathalie Lete’s New Story: The Butcher’s Daughter

Thursday 06 September 2012 by ISABEL

The Butcher’s daughter.

If you’re looking for something a little different for your table settings, our Butcher’s Daughter tablemats fit the bill. Bursting with eccentric and fun imagery, these unusual designs brim with humour and are sure to inspire a spot of table talk. The Butcher and The Butcher’s Wife designs feature a collage of quirky motifs set against a traditional chequered background. If you fancy creating a unique tabletop set, Butcher’s Daughter is also available as square drinks coasters. We also think this design works well with Nathalie’s Charcuterie Coq and Hen placemats and Deli worktop saver.

The family orientated theme is eccentric and fun – typical of Nathalie Lete’s underlying and addictive humour. Featuring the entire family from the butcher himself to his mum, dad, wife, son and daughter, these square drinks coasters make for an unusual gift, or will add a touch of eccentricity to your own table settings.

This new Avenida Home collection is available on our website and shall be showcased for the first time at Maison et Objet in Paris from 7-11 September, Hall 7, D63.

Alternatively for those living in the UK, catch the first glimpse of these products at Tent London 2012. For this first hand experience, make sure to visit us at Stand F17, Hall T1.

New Brand distributed by Avenida Isabel

Avenida Home is a design led British brand founded by Isabel Saiz – The idea behind its first table top collection is to bring together art, craftsmanship and functionality.

Featuring on the place mats , table mats and coasters are much loved pieces of art by Michael Angove and Nathalie Lete and contemporary designs by Alabasta and Puddin’head.

The products are a celebration of British craftsmanship. The strength and durability is due to the high quality materials: 4.8 mm eucalyptus board from renewable sources, rich black baize felt on the reverse, and a protective fine melamine coating heat resistant to 160°C.


Dill', the latest design by Michael Angove, is now available from Liberty and Fortnum & Mason

Tuesday 22 November 2011 by ISABEL

'Dill' is the latest addition to Michael Angove’s popular Chinoiserie Collection. The design features delicate flora and fauna images that provide a stunning setting in any room. Inspired by sustainable living, Angove has created a liberated new design of detailed naturalism.

Each tray is completely unique

New techniques developed by Ary Trays enable the beautiful wood to show through Angove’s designs, creating a completely unique tray each time.

Back to basics

In a world filled with plastic and non-biodegradable material, why not go back to basics with a natural, functional, and completely unique birch wood tray.


Puddin’head | The New Artisans

Friday 07 October 2011 by ISABEL

Puddin’head have been featured on the front cover of The New Artisans: Handmade Designs for Contemporary Living by Oliver Dupon. A book that has sourced the cream of contemporary craft from all over the world.

The practice of handmade craft has undergone a huge resurgence in recent times. This book captures the new mood – a return to a preference for the unique and the artisanal. Dozens of designers and makers are featured, who use craft techniques rather than mass-production methods to create stylish, whimsical, covetable objects.

Design expert and acclaimed blogger Olivier Dupon has sourced the cream of the contemporary craft world from all over Europe, Australia and the United States. His keen eye and creative flair have led him to be featured in many style magazines. Complete with an introduction as well as the author’s personal recommendations for inspiring shops, websites and blogs to visit, this is the perfect resource for discovering unique and beautiful objects handcrafted by new, talented artisans from around the world.

Puddin’head is the creation of Richard McAdam. From early cartographers’ descriptions to the New World and its fantastic creatures to the surrealist movement’s of the subconscious imagination, Richards sources of inspiration are diverse. If there is any underlying thread in his work, it is the gentle humour that is more whimsical than hard-edged.


Bluebellgray chair receives Elle Approval badge at TENT London

Friday 07 October 2011 by ISABEL

Anabel Cutler, Deputy Editor of Elle Decoration selected this Bluebellgray chair, crafted by Roger Lewis as one of the top things to see at TENT.

Bluebellgray is an exciting, young, Scottish textile design company specialising in the home interiors market. Influenced by a love of colour and all things floral, the designs are something unique and special, each design is painted by hand in the Bluebellgray studio before being printing onto natural cottons and linens using state of the art printing technology. The printing methods used by Bluebellgray enable every brushstroke and colour to be captured enhancing the feel of the hand painted design. The pieces have a sense of provenance and the designer behind the product, adding to the feeling of exclusivity.
