Accessories & Decorative Features

I am looking for a fairly contemporary coat/hat stand for a hallway with limited space.

  Chaplins has one of Europe's largest showrooms (over 25,000 sq feet ) for modern furniture and design and over eighty leading manufacturers on display. Look up their website, and do a search for 'clothes stand'; an excellent selection of modern coat stands and hooks will appear.

I am looking for an internal ladder which I could use to drape fabrics on. Who would you suggest?

For pretty clothes’ ladders try Emily Readett-Bayley who has a selection of decorative ladders in bamboo and in faux-driftwood (made from recycled coffee trees) and antique dealer Appley Hoare usually has some antique French painted ladders in stock.

I am looking for a trade supplier of cushions and cushion covers in the North West of England. manufactures a fantastic selection of cushions at reasonable prices; they are located in Lancaster. Their range includes plain and patterned velvets, tapestry designs, faux fur, faux suede, chenille, jacquards, plain and embroidered silks- all with duck feather inners. They supply nationwide both to the trade and to retail clients.

Where can I find a large and very simple white mirror to prop up against a bathroom wall?

Have a look at the wide range of mirrors from Papa Theo. Their hand-crafted wooden accessories are all made with materials from renewable sources.

Where can I look for a large antique French mirror – gilded or painted?

Why don’t you try Kitty Fisher's Finds? They specialise in antique and vintage French furniture, lighting, accessories and mirrors, and have a changing selection on their website. You could also try Maison Claire. (Image Kitty Fisher's Finds).
