One of the great things about my job is it often leads me to new designers, artists, retailers and creators. Some are well-known brands that I just haven’t used before, others are purely online; there are local independents and artists offering a more bespoke product and when I have been particularly impressed by a company, I have decided to write about them in a new midweek feature, Brand Spotlight.
For the first in this feature I’ve picked the lovely Rowen & Wren who I have used to buy some pendant lights. When I called with a few questions I got straight through to Zoe and not only were all my questions answered, she was also super efficient at replying to subsequent emails and the items arrived quickly and well packaged. On arrival one of the glass fittings was slightly damaged (a manufacturing fault) and Rowen & Wren accepted the item back for an exchange with no trouble at all. Here’s how they describe themselves:
“As a couple we’re passionate about beautiful interiors.
After years working in retail and design, we launched Rowen and Wren in 2011, as a thoughtfully sourced collection of distinctive homewares. We’re fascinated by eclectic design, muted colours and simple functionality that means everything we sell sits as comfortably in an urban loft as a country retreat.
We love homes that are well loved, lived in and tell a story with pieces to treasure. That’s why we have a thing for new talent and traditional artisans.”

In addition to lighting, you’ll find something beautiful for every area of your home and garden. Some of the larger items are out of my price range but they have a wonderful, thoughtful, selection of smaller items within most budgets and I will certainly be using them to find new pieces for my own home in the future.
Here’s 3 things I’ve got my eye on but you can find the full collection at www.rowenandwren.co.uk
