Travelling in style

Folding candlesticks, pop-up tables and hidden lavatories - we explore the fascinating realm of campaign furniture and discover the 'flat-pack' designs that have a lasting legacy today. 

 

 

 

Naïve charm

Doris and Christophr have filled their Suffolk farmhouse with simple treasures from the past; objects that reflect the passage of time, the people who made them and the lives they've touched. 

 

 

Elizabethan odyssey  

Parham House in Sussex is one of England's finest 16th-century manor houses, saved from certain ruin by the late Clive and Alicia Pearson who began restoring in 1922. 

 

The history of the sun lounger 

We've invented various pieces of furniture to help us relax in the sun over the centuries, from reclining chairs offering respite from the heat on tea plantations, to the modest deckchair on Britain's beaches.
