Just a quick heads up that I have only have one of these lovely mustard throws left…

You can purchase it here now for delivery by xmas!

I posted a few more things in the Roost shop this weekend!

Currently on auction listings:

A little avian friend…

…a precious mid century porcelain Poole Pottery owl lamp.

The lamp measures approx 10.5″ high including fittings & and is stamped POOLE ENGLAND on the base.

In excellent condition, this lamp is being sold without the shade.

See listing here.

I’ve also listed  a slipcover I made for a fugly Ektorp chair at the last flat. It was so hideously uncomfortable that no one ever sat in it and the slipcover is new! Listed here.

This hand-made cover is made from sturdy grey heavy upholstery cotton – Ikea’s BLAD fabric. Cushions slide into covers, as shown, and all can be removed and washed.

The Ektorp armchair has the following dimensions: Width: 41″ (104 cm), Depth: 34 5/8 ” ( 88cm), Height: 34 5/8 ” (88 cm), Seat width: 24 3/4 ” ( 63cm), Seat depth:21 1/4 ” (54 cm), Seat height: 17 3/4 ” (45cm). (This cover will fit other chair models IF the dimensions are very similar; eg. Pottery Barn.)

Both auctions end next Sunday…or contact me directly for a 10% Roost reader discount –

As mentioned in a previous post I have recently bought into the warm, sunny mustard trend wholeheartedly and not only found a throw for the Roost…

…but had a couple extra made to sell on, just in time for the cold weather that is creeping in!

Woven in soft, insulating 100% New Zealand lambswool, these yummy blankets are made in the UK by one of Britain’s oldest woolen mills and are a perfect way to add a sunny splash of colour and texture to a chilly room.

The edges are finished with a durable blanket stitch…

…and the blanket can be hand or machine washed gently at 30ºC using a specialty wool detergent. Just reshape after washing and dry flat.

Treated with care these blankets should keep you warm and cozy for a lifetime!


These are now gone. Thanks for the interest!

Finbarr has decided to get in on the action and sell his favourite vintage Danish-style chair…but as you can see, he is having a little trouble letting go…!

winston's roost

Some of you may remember this chair from my before and after post of it last year.  Well, Finbarr liked swinging on it so much for that photo shoot that it kind of became his!

Here he is at it again!

winston's roost

It measures:
63.5cm high, 42cm deep and 43cm wide.

The chair retains its original patina and shows light use for its 50 some odd years. The seat has been recently re-padded and covered in beautiful peacock printed linen – light greige/linen base with the peacock pattern printed in sage, dark grey and duck egg blue.

Since I have put up my new string shelving he has moved on to new swing ground, though, and decided he doesn’t REALLY need it any more, so we have listed it on ebay.

Check out the details and buy here on ebay!

I hope to post the string shelving soon…STILL waiting for one last bit from Modern Metropolis (long story), then will let you see it in it’s glory!

I have just listed this gorgeous antique linen tablecloth on Ebay:

It is in mint condition with no stains, rips or other blemishes. This must have been kept stored out of the light for decades as there is absolutely no yellowing of the cloth and it looks amazingly new.

Measuring  168 x 172 cms the tablecloth has a finely embroidered cutwork line edging the pure linen centre panel and beautiful flowered, hand crochet lace around the linen square.

Buy it on here on the Roost shop!

I am slowly getting the Roost shop moving, and have listed another of my furniture beauties for sale.

I bought this gorgeous maple burl drinks cabinet right as we were moving into our new (tiny) rental, and have had to come to painful terms with the fact that I really need the space it is occupying (in such beautiful style) ….for my studio!!

I just couldn’t resist the stunningly matched burl veneer and hand carved elegant legs, so brought it home against all reason. Sigh. It has taken a couple months, but reality has set in, and it is time to find the precious a new home!

Here are details:

It measures 148.5cm high, 88cm wide and 45cm deep, appears to be from the 1920 -30’s Art Deco period and is of amazing quality with intricate hand-carved details along the top of the unit and legs.

It comes with the original ornate brass hinges and working lock with key.

Maple lined inside, it has a mercury mirrored back and base and a glass shelf – all undamaged. There is also a light fitting inside which I recommend thoroughly checking and possibly rewiring before use for safety reasons.

Get more details and photos on at the Roost shop on ebay, and pass this along if you know anyone who might be interested!
