After months of negotiation and weeks of building and decorating (and moving furniture and stock from two different locations) Cherry Tree Interiors finally opened its doors on Wednesday.
Ok, so the sign still isn’t finished (our builders were very good but slower than we anticipated but by Sunday, this will look so much better!)
We are so proud of it, it’s a small business with a big heart and a real passion for creating beautiful soft furnishings, giving new life to old furniture and providing some rather gorgeous lifestyle accessories from the likes of Wood & Willow, Dora Designs, Pip Studios, Parlane, Riverdale, J-Me and Westgate Clocks. Art and photography by yours truly, Tony Shill and This is a Limited Edition.
Here are the first images of the shop as we opened on Wednesday.
Gorgeous glass pendant light in the window, attracting lots of attention (and rightly so!)
Traditional renovated Welsh dresser displaying pretty lifestyle products and silk cushions designed and made by Maxine in-store.
Wood and Willow and Dora Designs sit side by side atop traditional renovated pine coffee table and a post modern extendable dining table.
A stunning, renovated Regency dresser displays Pip Studios vibrant wares.
The walkway from the front to the back of the shop entices with flashes of retro furniture, furnishings and artwork.
Stunning Harlequin wallpaper and soft furnishings are perfectly complimented by a renovated 1950′s retro cabinet displaying Westgate clocks, handcrafted scrapbook albums and gatefold albums covered in Orla Kiely papers (by yours truly) and photography by Tony Shill.
A renovated retro rocking chair and fab bubble clock by Westgate.
Harlequin wallpapers and fabrics, cushions made by Maxine in-store and stunning silk curtains and pelmet – so luxurious!
Black Villa Nova ‘Naples’ wallpaper, a stunning renovated Regency sideboard, plum cut velvet cushions and ghostly art by Geraldine Georges show how to decorate with black.
The entrance to my new home at the back of the shop, compact and bijou but perfectly formed and working out just fine!
We’ve had a trickle of people of the last 3 days, lots of interest in what we are doing. A few sales, a few bookings for consultations and a potential craft class booked for June.
The future’s looking very bright!
