Driftwood mirror handmade by Wayne Willetts at Surf Mirrors
Surf Mirrors
Hawthorn Farm Buildings, Christchurch, Dorset, BH23 7AB
phone: 07977 599526

Wayne Willetts is a Dorset-based designer-maker who specialises in beautiful driftwood mirrors and surfboard mirrors..which of course it's not advisable to try to surf on.

Wayne spends the winter gathering pieces of driftwood from beaches around Britain and transforms it into characterful mirrors and pieces of furniture and lighting for people who want their wood to look like wood and to have had minimal impact on the environment. Wayne's driftwood mirrors do evoke a sense of the sea and they work equally well in modern and traditional settings. Commission a unique piece for your sitting room, dining room or bedroom.

Clients can request whatever size of mirror they would like up to a width of 9ft.

Tog Knives are a must for serious cooks
Tog Knives
Glenside, Oxleaze Lane, Dundry, Bristol, BS41 8LA

Tog knives are, according to many top chefs, the best money can buy. They're superbly sharp and durable and they make preparing food a joy. 

Designed by industrial designer Rob Beagley-Brown, a Tog knife is a hand-made, batch-produced artisan product. The blades are forged in Japan's Seki City - home of the Samurai sword - from a unique steel that contains three different metals. A high carbon core gives them their incredible edge. The beautiful handles are made for us in Sheffield using the Norwegian material Kebony maple (a durable and eco-friendly alternative to tropical hardwood); and the knives, which are intended to last for decades, come with a lifetime guarantee (*but don't put them in the dishwasher!).
 
Phil Howard, chef and co-owner of two Michelin-starred The Square restaurant in London's Mayfair says this about his Tog knife: 'I'm not a knife geek but I do love a truly great knife. My Tog is one such piece of crucial kit.'

phone: 07876 573492
We sell beautiful vintage Swedish rugs. Sourced in rural Sweden, the rugs come in a variety of patterns and colourways and date from the 1920s to the 1970s. Woven on traditional floors looms, they're are highly sought after and are becoming increasingly rare.
 
Very much a part of Swedish cultural heritage, the rugs - each one of which is unique - are woven from the leftover fabric in a typical Swedish household;  so they're a great example of upcycling.
 
The rugs we sell at The Northern House work brilliantly in both traditional and contemporary interiors.They were created for both everyday use and are to be loved, admired and trodden on!

Milam Mattress was set up by Katalin Korzekwa to bring the 'eco-luxe' mattress to the UK, where Brits are increasingly wanting to sleep on mattresses that aren't full of plastic foam and noxious fire retardant chemicals, and which will bio-degrade at the end of their life.

Milam mattresses are supremely comfortable and are handmade in the UK. Crucially they contain no synthetic PU foam or FR chemicals and you can expect your mattresses to last for a good 15-20 years. Milam's pricing point is considerably less than many established brands offering natural latex and coir mattresses, with singles at £889* and a kingsize at £1,399*.
