Winter Light, Candlelight
THE SHOP FLOOR PROJECT
16 Aug 2019
Here at The Shop Floor Project, we have an evergrowing collection of painted candle holders and magical sconces to keep winter cosy...
There is something magical about candlelight and Swedish maker Malin Appelgren dedicates her life to magnifying it. Her work is a perennial favourite at The Shop Floor Project and we often develop new ideas with her. This season we have added a wall sconce version of her Pressed Leaf designs - all hand beaten and stamped with the maker's mark.
Hand Thrown Light
This collection of hand-thrown ceramic candlesticks by Katrin Moye feature her signature snowy Garland pattern, developed exclusively for The Shop Floor Project. In various shapes and sizes, prices from £225. We are also stocking a range of hand-dipped beeswax candles, made in Cumbria, a few miles from our HQ.
Cast of Characters
This characterful collection of candle-holders by British artist Ellen Hayward, exclusively for The Shop Floor Project, are folk art inspired designs with a snowy, wintery feel and are available in both black and white colourways; each with varying characters.
A Menagerie of Animals
These one-off candlesticks by Claudia Rankin show her love of bold colours and naive yet refined sense of nature, the creatures "simultaneously innocent yet knowing".
Other Ideas for Winter & Christmas
We have a wide variety of Christmas gifts and decorations, from pomegranates and pears, to paper garlands and patterned crowns...
Scent of an Abbey
The Benedictine Monks of Prinknash Abbey have been blending incense since 1906 when the community was on Caldey Island and are now the oldest major incense blenders in Europe. Available in three calming, atmospheric scents, our pure incense resin is £4.50 a box and our cast iron burner is £12.
Ripe for the Picking
Our glass baubles this year come in the form of fruit, vegetables and sweets. Hand blown in a traditional workshop in Egypt, the pears, pomegranates, figs, pineapples, strawberries and pumpkins can be hung on the tree or grouped on the table for a Baroque-inspired still-life display.
Wrapped in gold waxed paper with crimped edges, our new hand-blown glass sweet baubles are made in a traditional workshop in Egypt. With small holes for ribbon, they can easily be hung on the tree, or equally, they would make a fantastic display dotted around the Christmas table.
All Wrapped Up
There's nothing like beautiful wrapping paper. Our paper is available in two designs; Winter Seed-pods and Celestial in eight colourways. Not just for gifts, they make great decorative papers for lining cupboards or even wallpaper - as demonstrated by a customer who used several sheets to paper her downstairs loo!
It's just not Christmas without some new cosy socks! These colour-block designs are traditionally made in England, using super soft and thick British wool. £28 each, seven colour choices.
Paper Chain Garlands
There's something joyous about a paper chain garland. We festoon them over everything, including our guests if they stay still long enough! Our popular Paper Chain Garland Kits are easy to assemble and make 10 metres of chain per kit. £18 per kit.
This year we wanted to create an alternative to the sugar paper hats found in Christmas crackers. These cardboard crowns are painted with patterns by Raphael Balme and come in four designs. Place each one on a dinner plate, ready for your guests for a regal Christmas table. £28 for a set of four.
Plan your Party
This wonderful journal by the French antique papers specialists, Antoinette Poisson, helps to plan and record your dinner parties. Each page has a table layout so you can draw a seating arrangement, jot down ideas for themes, table settings. On the facing page, there's space for what food and wine you'll serve, plus a section for guests to write their comments - a really fun way to remember evenings spent with friends.
To match, we also have a variety of patterned notebooks, perfect for jotting notes and making lists - £32 each.
In matching Antoinette Poisson French Paper patterns, we also have a collection of prints to decorate your home with, and linen wallets - the perfect size for cards.
Make your own little world with these wonderful miniature cardboard building kits. Choose from an elegant Georgian house, a modernist masterpiece, a row of shop fronts or even a traditional barn. The decoration possibilities are endless - paint, paper or even draw on the surfaces.
Our best selling collection of large wraps (which also double up as throws or even wall hangings) start life as giant kraft-paper collages. All over the studio, huge paper plant forms are cut and assembled, playing with combinations for the perfect composition.
We commissioned the artist and children's book illustrator Lily Irwin to create a series of paintings and embroideries for our Silk Star Kits. Each kit comes with a printed fabric star, needle, cotton, organic wool for stuffing and a length of silk ribbon for hanging.
This collection of theatre kits and pop-up dioramas is full of magic and myth. They look great on top of a chest of drawers, in a window or even inside an old cupboard.
Hands of a Maker
The second collection of our hand puppet kits by Samantha Allan include designs such as The Fool, Mr Moon and Sun Clown. Inspired by the puppets Paul Klee made between 1916 and 1925, many of which were modelled on his contemporaries at the Bauhaus, we are thrilled that the Puppet Kits are now also stocked at the new Bauhaus Museum in Dessau.
These beautiful, delicate, handmade copper wreaths are made by British artist Rowan Macgregor and are exclusively for The Shop Floor Project.
