Birdie Fortescue’s collection of homewares work beautifully together to create the perfect setting for a leisurely lunch in a palette of calm greens and whites.
Fresh garden flowers, the finesse of smooth porcelain contrasted with hand-blocked linen and glasses with a hint of the organic all add to a sense of pared-down refinement at the table.
Birdie personally sources each items of her contemporary home collection buying ‘beautiful stylish pieces that I would love to live with myself.’
Birdie is an experienced designer and decorator having trained under Colefax and Fowler, before developing her passion for late 18th and early 19th century continental furniture into a career as a specialist antiques dealer. She has sourced and supplied to a wide spectrum of clients around the country and in the States, and her shop is the perfect showcase for her understated, elegant style.
Collections include lighting, cushions, dining, kitchen, storage, bedroom, bathroom, office, rugs, lifestyle and home accessories. Birdie’s own designs play a growing part of her brand and she has commissioned hand-blocked textiles for bed and table linen.
Birdie’s pared-down timeless style means that the homewares and antiques work beautifully together and are perfect for furnishing a range of classic and contemporary properties from town and country houses to converted barns and beach houses.
