And finally, as the icing on the cake, Wicklewood have launched a full design concierge, covering both brands, which offers customers complimentary private appointments where dedicated consultants will offer interior advice - from pairing prints to overhauling colour schemes.

Caroline Downing Nadel, co-founder of Wicklewood tells Livingetc: ‘this is a really exciting time for us – we’re delighted to be able to partner with Blithfield, to showcase our full collection and meet our wonderful customers.’

Liz Downing, co-founder of Blithfield added: ‘we’ve run a boutique showroom for many years now, and are really excited to be able to expand the space, as well as partnering with Wicklewood to offer what is really a full service approach to interior design.’

The shop's colour palette is already giving us spring 2021 vibes and we can't wait to stop by for a visit.
