We’ve constantly got our nose to the ground to find beautiful, classic pieces that suit period and contemporary interiors alike, and vitally, homeware that can’t just be found on the high street. Many a happy hour is spent seeking out and working with designer makers, small batch producers and artists and also looking further afield. From home-grown talent to larger international brands that just aren’t seen on our home shores, we are passionate about bringing together beautiful pieces that exude style but that are well made and practical at the same time…
We’ve hugely admired renowned Belgian homeware brand, Flamant, for some time, so it has been a wonderful experience this past few weeks to pick out pieces from their collection for 17 West Street and for client projects that we know our customers will love.
The history of Flamant goes back to over 30 years ago. It started out in Antwerp, Belgium as the family business of the three Flamant brothers, Alex, Geo and Jacques, who took it upon themselves to expand and develop their father’s antique shop. The original idea behind Flamant was based on the reinterpretation of antique furniture and decorative objects, with care for a perfect blend between past and present. This concept constitutes the leitmotif in all Flamant collections ever since.
We love the collection for its warm, natural materials, classic design and muted colours which sit beautifully with contemporary and period homes alike. Flamant’s collections offer a multitude of styles, encompassing a broad design spectrum. From classic, country and Gustavian to modern vintage and contemporary urban design, Flamant merges past and present in perfect harmony. The result is an impressively diversified collection of products, and we’ve chosen products ranging from oversized furniture (the statuesque Saya dresser is a case in point; wonderfully generous and a real centrepiece for the kitchen or dining room), tableware such as simple but beautifully designed white bone china, and stylish garden furniture and garden accessories. And have you see the Brigitt rocking chair?
Should you see something you like in store, but want something a little bit taller, broader, lighter or whatever, we can suggest alternatives and source it for you from the Flamant collection. Come in and see us and let’s work together to see what will work best for your home.
Furthermore, Flamant will shortly be available in our online store. Watch this space!
