As part of our new series – championing British brands and designers – we are this week featuring the very talented artist, Sarah Blomfield.
There is increasing demand from clients for designers to find handcrafted, one off pieces made from skilled crafts people, rather than supplying more standard, mass-produced, readily available items.
Not only is Sarah an established and qualified artist, but she has also worked with some of the best in the design world – the likes of Colefax and Fowler, Brunschwig & Fils and Guy Goodfellow. She therefore really knows what we, as designers, are looking for.
I am looking forward to working with her on the design of her hand painted lampshades for my interiors projects. What I love most about these is the intricate detail of Sarah’s work, it’s sophisticated and beautiful. When working with her we can create something which is truly unique. We discuss the scheme and the fabrics included, and her work is designed and hand painted to sit perfectly with it. A truly bespoke, handmade, ‘one off’ piece. A wonderful offering for my clients.
