The Florentine Issue
We are thrilled to introduce our Spring Summer collection, Florentine, a considered and timeless collection that is particularly meaningful to Birdie. Inspired by Birdie’s time in Florence, the thoughtful curation of this collection has been designed to complement modern day life, bringing with it a sense of wanderlust and nostalgia for Italian summers. Cameo pinks, leafy greens and sky blues are at the heart of Florentine, chosen in tones that sit harmoniously alongside past and future collections, providing a gentle yet fun backdrop to Spring/Summer living.
Timeless geometrics and whimsical floral designs, block printed by hand, feature across cushions, lampshades and table linens. These colourful textiles balance perfectly with the collection’s new range of Mid Century inspired Rattan Furniture, with organic form and clean lines.
The Ando Collection
Created for Autumn Winter 2022, the Ando collection was one of our most ambitious. In Japanese, the word Ando means peace, comfort and calm - all of which were the inspiration for this considered and timeless collection.
Soft, trailing florals coordinated with Japanese-inspired motifs, leafy bamboo prints and raw, earthy materials. The collection created a rich, seasonal look through table linens and soft furnishings including cushions, wool throws and luxury hand-woven rugs, as well as contemporary table lamps, lampshades and our very first floor lamp.
Our goal for this collection was to create unique future heritage pieces of the highest quality, designed and made to be cherished for years to come.
The Loire Collection
Designed for Spring Summer 22, the Loire collection was unashamedly soft and feminine with a luxurious. We wanted to create a range that felt honest and gentle, with a timelessness that would carry it through for seasons and even years to come. Birdie's inspiration came from the exquisite designs of 18th Century French prints and antique faience from Nevers. The designs created embraced this heritage and interpreted it in a quiet, unobtrusive way. Sets of harmonious florals and geometrics were designed to be generously layered as cushions, soft furnishings and tableware whilst the furniture was timeless and architectural. The collection also included new lighting, rugs, decorative accessories, art and ceramics for our most complete seasonal look yet.
The Wanderings Collection
Throughout the pandemic, our wanderlust was put on hold, however, Birdie continued travelling the world via books, blogs and social media. Taking inspiration from Romania to China via Russia and Eastern Africa, dipping into folk history, Baroque architecture and the Arts & Crafts movement along the way. Ordinarily, our collections are based on a single theme that stems from Birdie's travels. However, the Wanderings collection took from all over the world, jumping from one period to another and referencing a smattering of countries from across the globe. As ever our batches were small and special editions were limited. To bring the whole look together we also curated a body of original artworks by emerging and established artists.
The Damascene Collection
The Damascene Collection re-imagined the lavishly decorated ceramics and textiles of the early Ottoman Empire. Elements from Iznik tiles, Anatolian architecture and Uzbek needlework were translated into contemporary designs that are perfect for the summer season. Trailing florals, detailed geometrics and intricate foliate patterns layered together across table linens and cushions with Birdie's trademark sense of balance.
The Chowa Collection
The Chowa Collection embraced the ancient philosophy of Chowa; the Japanese wisdom that encourages the quest for harmony and balance. Influenced by the traditional textiles of the Ainu tribespeople in Northern Japan, the collection encompassed bold geometric motifs, small scale Hana prints and delicate embroidery.
The Mishran Collection
In this eclectic collection Gossamer-like tendrils of the strie print were picked out in delicate Blossom and softest Cerulean, trailing across napkins, tablecloths and cushions. With a palette of chalky white, natural rattan and wood, Cerulean tablescapes were light, bright and coastal - whilst Blossom tables were effortlessly summery with abundant picked flowers.
