“I am delighted to announce the launch of our badge designed for Macmillan in support of their essential work”
We have joined forces with wonderful teams at Macmillan Cancer Support and M&S to raise funds and awareness as part of World’s Biggest Coffee Morning which takes place on 25th of September.
We have designed two beautiful pin badges for the event. Each badge comes with a lovely recipe, perfect for your guests at your own Coffee Morning.
“More and more people are affected by cancer every year. Macmillan provide a vital service and give a fantastic support to the patients, looking after people not only physically, but mentally” says Sophie “I wanted to design really wearable, but eye-catching and pretty badges which would make people smile. We started off with the idea of an English Garden, and then homed in on the image of a single, cheerful house plant sitting in a bright, colourful pot. My kitchen is always filled with plants of all different shapes and sizes – I love the way they give a feeling of the outside within, and they make you feel at home.”
Please show your support for Macmillan by buying a badge either on our website or in M&S stores nationwide. Look out for them at the till, tell all your friends and share the love.
To make donations for a wonderful cause or organise your own World’s Biggest Coffee Morning visit Macmillan website.
Have a fantastic Macmillan coffee morning.
See you soon,
Sophie and the team

We are so thrilled to have designed this chair to hang in the new atrium at Selfridge’s in support of the charity The Art Room.
The Art Room charity offers art as a therapeutic intervention for children aged 5 to 16, providing a platform for them to build confidence, self-esteem, and learn about the power of creativity. The chair, the charity’s logo, represents one of the tangible objects that Art Room students get to work with – introducing them to a sense of empowerment through transforming everyday objects into something creative and individual.
On designing the chair, Sophie says, ‘I love a challenge and this one was particularly enjoyable. I got to work with wonderful embroiderers and upholsterers bringing the chair to life with colour. It is named Gaia – Earth Mother and Goddess of Nature.” The chair is currently hanging in the new Art Room at Selfridges, along with an eclectic mix of chairs from other designers. It will be available to auction on May 22nd and culminating in a small auction event at Selfridges on 9th June. Follow the link from 22nd May if you would like to make a bid on the chair > http://paddle8.com/auction/TheArtRoom.
We are thrilled to announce that our 12″ frying pan has been chosen as the winner of the Cookware Innovation Awards at the 2015 House Wares Innovation Awards!
Not only do the entire collection of our cooking pans look fantastic, they have a host of practical features that ensure ease of use and superb cooking results.
The body of each pan is made of cast aluminium, which is fantasically light but strong, hard-wearing and conducts heat beautifully. The whole pan is then coated in a durable super non-stick ceramic layer, which is amazingly easy to clean, has not PTFE and does not stain.
We have done a huge amount of development work to produce this beautiful collection and we’ve made sure that we’ve created a unqiue look with all the benefits of cast aluminium cookware and the latest non-stick ceramic coating technology.
Dishwasher safe and oven safe up to 200 Degrees celsius/ 390 Degrees fahrenheit.
All pans can be used in any oven and on all hob tops including induction, thanks to an additional stainless steel disc sandwiched within the base. The heavy gauge base distributes heat evenly ensuring that there are no hot spots giving a quick and even spread of heat so that food does not stick and burn.
The pans come in beautiful packaging that is inpsired by the dancing bubbles in boiling water.
12″ / 30cm
