When shopping for furniture, most people’s first port of call is one of the usual big brands, or whichever of them recently put out a new tantalizing ad campaign. But if you live in or near Bristol and are looking for bespoke, high-quality and contemporary chairs, footstools and cushions – even for existing ones to be reupholstered – I’d encourage you to shop locally, and more specifically with a store that is extremely passionate about the furniture that they produce.
Rebecca Krzyzosiak is a designer from Bath who makes handmade jewellery and accessories. A Bath Spa University graduate, with experience working in different areas of the textile industry, last year she opened her own small business, Little Wren Accessories.
Her creations can be found on Etsy, but you would be well advised to snap up whichever of those you wish to acquire, as each piece is one-of-a-kind. From necklaces to brooches, from fascinators to cuffs, most feature pre-loved fabrics and items such as buttons, beads, lace and pearls.
