As a chef I’m constantly looking for innovative, useful equipment for the kitchen – that will do its job consistently and exceptionally well.

Laura Ashley's Bloomsbury Collection for the Home

We would like to introduce the Laura Ashley BLOOMSBURY collection for the home. 

Laura Ashley acquired the rights to a selection of Charleston House patterns 25 years ago and produced a memorable collection in 1987 featuring a number of designs. Ever since then, the designs have been carefully stored in the archive but as Laura Ashley are now celebrating their 60th Anniversary this year, they felt the time is right for a revival.

Chosen are two of the original, bold, freely painted patterns plus some later Cressida Bella scarf designs. The colour palette is in keeping with one of the original 1987 colourations of Queen Mary, including Jade, Plum, Primrose and Steel Grey.
