Since falling in love with The Hadleigh Ram, we often recommend it as the perfect place to lunch to customers who visit our showroom. The family behind this fabulous renovation also own The Swan in Long Melford, so when we were given the chance to have a snoop around there it was an offer we couldn’t refuse!
The Swan offers seperate accommodation, Melford House, which comprises of a beautiful boutique hotel that offers four very unique and fabulous rooms and of course we couldn’t help but notice the Jim Lawrence fittings throughout.
It is no surprise that copper is a hugely growing trend with its rich warm tones and classic rustic look, it is perfect this autumn. We are celebrating this with the launch of our stunning new Heritage Copper range. Each solid copper item is hand finished by our craftsmen with antiquing solution to create a soft tarnished finish.
We absolutely love seeing our lights in their new homes, therefore we especially loved when lots of our products were spotted in this beautiful contemporary bar in Clapham. The Bank is set in a stunning Grade II listed building and one of our lovely customers got in touch to let us know that they have many of our lights on display. We found some fantastic images online and we just had to share them with you…
We love to hear what our customers think of our products and service and on Wednesday afternoon we were given a real treat from a rather lovely couple who took the time to email Jim this fantastic letter.
We were having lunch at a local pub here in Sussex a few weeks ago when Jill commented on a beautiful light on the wall in the style of a sheaf of corn. She suggested it would look great in our dining room (which we are about to redecorate) and so, upon returning home, she searched on Google for “cornsheaf gold wall light”, found your website and then quickly found the “Sussex” lights. We want the pendant plus 3 wall lights but were concerned about ordering them on-line without seeing the pendant (particularly because the cost was way above our original budget). So, we decided to drive up to Hadleigh to see for ourselves…“
Since being at the Chelsea Flower Show we have really got the exhibition bug and our next stop was Olympia. Every year they host the Spirit of Summer Fair and this year they decided to join this with the HOUSE event for inspiring interiors, design and decoration – we soon jumped on the idea and decided to attend.
This spring we have decided to give one of our lucky customers a unique Jim Lawrence country escape. One of Jim and Sheena’s favourite places is the beautiful Crown at Stoke-By-Nayland. This boutique hotel is only a few miles away from Scotland Hall Farm – where Jim Lawrence first started designing and hand-crafting all of his beautiful products.
What a week we have had at RHS Chelsea Flower Show, it really has been an amazing experience and a milestone in Jim Lawrence history. We spent 6 weeks building, planning and arranging the stand with all 40 of our outdoor and conservatory lighting range on show. There was a lot of preparation and it was amazing how many little things we had to remember – right down to that little watering can to keep all 32 of our plants alive!
So Friday arrived and we packed up the stand and off it went to Chelsea with the rest of us in tow. We spent the next two days getting everything set up and wired in – the stand looked better than ever and we couldn’t wait to show it off on Monday morning.
