Lindleywood handmade bird boxes are novel and fun

Lindleywood

phone: 01476 560707
At Lindleywood we design and hand-make original, fun wooden bird boxes and other products for home and garden. We also use only British suppliers; so we buy our sustainable European redwood pine from a local wood-merchant and use hardwearing non-toxic wood paints from an independent UK manufacturer.
 
Our products are often in the national media, such as on ITV's Love Your Garden and The Alan Titchmarsh Show. They make ideal gifts for all occasions where you want to give something that's well-made and unique. 
 
 
 
 
Chandelier made from old kitchen utensils by Madeleine Boulesteix

Madeleine Boulesteix

Madeleine is based in South London and South Devon

I’ve been making chandeliers using recycled materials for over 20 years. It started after finding 40 faceted glass drops in some rubbish. I wanted to make myself a chandelier that looked opulent but was made from humble objects. I found metal kitchen items for the structure at car boot sales and scrap yards. They seem nice jaunty objects with more potential so I liberate them from their domestic duties by incorporating them into my chandeliers. I love thrift and the challenge of re-using. 
 
 
 
 
Ada & Ina natural linen fabrics

Ada & Ina Ltd

Unit 8, Cotton Road, Wincheap Industrial Estate, Canterbury, CT1 3RB

phone: 020 7183 7986

Linen is one of the most eco friendly textiles. It comes from flax, which grows abundantly in Europe and it doesn't need special irrigation or pesticide treatments, unlike conventional cotton which requires huge volumes of water and pesticides. Linen looks beautiful, it drapes so nicely and it comes in different weights. Heavy linen is fabulous for curtains, blinds, upholstery, while finer linen is used for clothing. Here at Ada & Ina, you'll find a huge choice of linens, from plains to patterns and in different weights. So make your interiors eco friendly by using linen for your soft furnishings.

Joelle Kem Lika water lilies

Joëlle Kem Lika

Studios in Acquitaine and Burgundy

phone: +33 (0)1 7557 6117

Joëlle Kem LIka is an artist whose paintings are life-affirming, exuberant and full of vibrant colour.

At the heart of her work is a wish to celebrate and encourage us all to prize the natural world; indeed she says she draws her inspiration entirely from nature: 'I try to capture the strength of life in my works, such as the force of the sea, the vibrancy of life in the ocean, and the delight to be had from flowers, skies and sunsets.' 

She works in watercolour and acrylic paints and genres she specialises in include abstracts, impressionism and painting from the perspective of being in a situation - so as an artist she's imagining what it would be like to be in a wave or to be a ladybird inside a flower.
