It’s spring and organisation just got beautiful at Pentreath & Hall.
I err on the side of caution with stationery, favouring charcoal and buff shades. There is a lot of pattern out there at the moment but it never quite ticks all the boxes for my home office and I know that I will tire of fadish files.
Happily, there is an exception to every rule and Pentreath & Hall always passes with flying colours. Here, it’s as easy as ABC…
Decorative artist and maker Bridie Hall’s new Alphabet Brush or Pen Pots prove that desktops don’t have to be dull and studious. The pots are proudly handmade in London, cost £40 each and are now available in the Bloomsbury shop or online, where they are described in loving fashion.
‘Put all your pens into an alphabet pot! Brighten up your brushes! Make up your initials, spell out your name, a favourite word, a happy thought, get creative, make up the whole alphabet – the possibilities are endless! Did you know, the eight colours, when put in order make a rainbow? What can be more cheery than that? Personalise that work space, treat yourself - you’re worth it!
Smooth crystal tumblers inlaid with a gold vinyl letter or symbol, backed with one of eight different coloured lacquers and a topcoat of glossy varnish.’
And it doesn’t stop there. Discover notebooks, box files and paper bins in designs called New Pavement, Stone Lattice and Falling Cubes. These handsome prints are based on stone floor and marble patterns by the great 18th century designer Batty Langley, and re-imagined brilliantly by Pentreath & Hall.
