We are one year old !!!! ....... and some more new stock .....

|

Hello Everyone

I can't believe we have hit the one year old mark - in some ways, the year has flown and yet in others, it feels like we have been working on Nat Cal for a very loooong time :)

First off, I just wanted to thank all of our lovely customers for supporting us - and also for the many wonderful emails from folk about the blog and the shop - I'm constantly amazed when I look at our google analytic figures - over 215,000 page visits at the last count !!!

Retail - never mind on-line retail - is a completely new field for us - let's just say,we've learned a lot along the way !!!  I am delighted with our suppliers. I feel we have evolved into the sort of boutique I'd always envisaged with beautiful products which combine both quality and uniqueness. Calm,cool,simple,crisp with interesting elements !!!! I guess that's how I see us :) And judging from the many emails, it sounds like you do too !!

Most of our product now comes from Denmark ....

This is an image we took at our last shoot - I'm loving the rugs by Lene Bjerre and will have them on the site very soon.

OR is made in the Uk or Ireland .....

It truly is about texture and quality !!

OR is woven/made in Portugal ......

 

When it comes to bedding - I guess, our look and style is all about pure and simple!! We shall have our new Portuguese bedding on the site next week.

OR - and I love this section - original artwork by local Irish artists .....

A big thank you to both Stuart and Nicola for being such a delight to have on the Nat Cal team :)

It has been a great experience and I have thoroughly enjoyed the last year !!

Anyway - we have added some more new items to the shop ....

 

I love the simple lines and sturdiness of this gorgeous beech floor lamp - practical yet stylish ....

This is another colour in this gorgeous range by Lene Bjerre (we also stock charcoal and denim blue) - this one would work equally well with greys or putty coloured tones  - durable yet oh so comfortable ......

A little bit of contemporary tartan works beautifully - especially as the nights draw in. The shade of this stylish lamp is made from pure lambswool woven by Johnstons of Elgin, making this most definitely a luxury item !! I love the mix of tradition with a contemporary twist ....

 

There are mohair throws and mohair throws !!!!! And these ones, woven in Ireland are beyond luxurious and cosy :)

I really like the simplicity and elegance of this hurricane lamp - the base is separate and could also be used for serving chocolates perhaps ?? 

How beautiful are these gorgeous candlesticks by Lene Bjerre ?? 

Style Tip

When done with a light touch, a few items with a 'reflective' finish can really add a little sparkle of light to a room - the key is moderation !! 

Well folks, I think that's all for now .....

More inspirational home pages and new stock coming up shortly !!

And here's to the next 12 months :)

Thank you all once again.

Take Care
