Things to do this May Bank Holiday Weekend

posted on May 22nd, 2015 by Nikki Phillips

Hurrah, another long weekend us upon us! Here are our top three things to do this weekend, one for each day.

Gardening

Bank holidays wouldn’t be complete without a spot of gardening and there are lots to enjoy and do in the garden at this time of year. Now’s the perfect opportunity to plant some of our favourite flowers including Anemones, Cornflowers and Asters, so pull on your wellies and let’s get muddy!

Take a walk along our glorious Cornish coastline

Cornwall has 400 miles of beautiful coastline, and over 6,000 footpaths and coastal walks. In spring, the cliffs are awash with colour, the hedgerows have burst into life and the cliffs are buzzing with wildlife. Take some time to enjoy a long walk, so grab your binoculars, take your time and enjoy the beautiful Cornish scenery, there’s no rush just finish ‘d’reckly’!

Behind The Scenes at The Garden Gate Flower Company

We stumbled across The Garden Gate Flower Company whilst exploring Fowey, the inspiration behind this season’s collection. On seeing the beautiful flower fields we knew we had to plan a photography shoot there.

Becca and Maz, the owners, grow the prettiest organic flowers and foliage. They spend their time lovingly watering, weeding and preparing the plants. And, when ready, turn their hand to creating beautiful floral arrangements.

Amongst the flowers and hazy, Cornish sunshine, we spent the day photographing our SS15 collection.

Seaside Walk Week

posted on May 19th, 2015 by Nikki Phillips

St Ives

This weekend our friends at the Family Holiday Association will be pulling on their wellies, packing their cameras and making their way from Chy Morvah in St Ives, along the coast to Carbis Bay to take part in an exciting new event, Seaside Walk Week! This great initiative is raising funds to help struggling families get a break away from some of the toughest challenges in life.

The week starts on Saturday and includes a series of nine guided walks at picturesque locations across the UK including St Ives in Cornwall, Lulworth Cove in Dorset and Southend-on-Sea in Essex (we wish we could take part in them all!). You can enjoy a leisurely 2- 4 mile short walk, or if you fancy something a little more challenging, there’s the option to take part in a longer 10 mile walk.

With our Design Studios overlooking Falmouth Bay, the sea is always at the heart of what we do, so Seaside Walk Week is an ideal way for us to celebrate our beautiful coastline and villages.

To sign up to a walk, or for more information please visit: SeasideWalkWeek.org.uk

If you’re taking part in the St Ives or Lulworth Cove walk, make sure you pick up your Seasalt Jute to pop your walking gear in, we hope to see you there.

Tom Raffield

Tom Raffield

If you’ve visited the very pretty riverside town of Hereford recently, you might have noticed we’ve just opened a brand new shop there.

We really love taking the time to make sure the interior design of all our shops is beautiful. with carefully considered features and special areas. For our Hereford shop, we wanted to do something a little different so we’ve teamed up with award winning Cornish craftsman, Tom Raffield. He’s a very talented woodwork designer who specialises in steam-bent wooden furniture and lighting pieces. We wanted to showcase some of Tom’s work by bringing his beautiful Cornish craftsmanship to Hereford.

_MG_0235 Jpeg

Here at Seasalt, we’ve been big fans of Tom’s fantastic contemporary lighting and furniture for quite some time now, so when we launched our homeware collection last year, we knew exactly who to contact to create some really impressive pieces. His lovely chairs and tables sit proudly in our Seasalt shops and look great against our Cornish Home range. Every piece you see has been caringly handcrafted in his studios in Helston, here in Cornwall. The wood he uses is sustainably sourced and each piece is finished with an eco-friendly, non-toxic varnish.

_MG_9731

It was whilst he studying at Falmouth College of Arts, just down the road from our Seasalt Design Studios, that Tom became fascinated with a woodwork technique called steam bending. It’s this technique that gives his work its distinctive bends and curves.

If you live in Hereford or you’re visiting during the summer, pop into our new shop to view Tom’s collection. Take the weight off your feet and try out the beautiful steam-bent upholstered armchair, stools and benches, rummage though our displays on the striking oak tables and peruse our clothes hung on Tom’s sturdy steam-bent oak rails.

To top it off, the shop’s been transformed by a very special lighting display, showcasing 18 of Tom’s designs suspended throughout.

We’d love to know which your favourite piece is, make sure you leave us a comment or send us a picture on FacebookTwitter or Instagram.
