Before launching our furniture business I had a soup factory for
8 years. We used to make lovely things for the likes of Pret and
Pizza Express. The one thing I learnt was that it was all about the
ingredients: get those right and you were onto a winner.
So we apply the same ethos to furniture where the ingredients
are both the materials and the craftsmen themselves. We only work
with like-minded people who refuse to cut corners and love what
they do. You can see some of their stories here.
Speaking of food, there's quite a bit of decent street food
round Portobello where we work. Below is a round-up of our current
faves - do give them a go if you're in the area. Have a butchers
Churros & Chocolate - Ok, so I know it's not exactly one of
your five a day, but a cheeky churro dipped in melted chocolate
sets the day up a treat.
Jamon Jamon - Make sure you're front of the line when the first
giant pan of paella gets served up at 11:45!
Spinach & Agushi - I go nuts for this stew. Make it a large
or you'll be dreaming about your next fix for days.
Happy Vegetarian - Freshly made while you wait, these falafels
are seriously good. We haven't found a contender yet!
