Anyone who runs their own business knows how hugely varied the role can be and somehow our blog always get put to the back of the to do list. After the everyday running of the business, customer liaison, stock ordering, buying trips, accounts, as well as raising a small family too, it’s enough to make you need a lie down!
One of the best parts of our job though is the creative side, which for us is the best part. From the sourcing of lovely new items for our growing range to photographing it all in stunning surroundings.
We have recently spent a lot of time out on location at some beautiful houses and it makes us so happy to see our furniture as it should be in stunning surroundings, instead of all boxed up in our warehouse.
We are regularly developing new products in line with current home styling trends, which we hope keep our collection innovative and exclusive. A huge amount of passion and enthusiasm goes into the exquisite presentation on our website thus providing you with the inspiration and confidence to recreate the look in your home too.
Attention to detail is thought through carefully and we choose only accessories, which will truly complement our collection and work with it in harmony.
Here are some recently newly photographed pieces and our tips on how to style them up in true LRI style.
Symmetry is very important to us and it is imperative that everything looks right through the camera lense. We have used black side tables and mirrors and lamps in this bright kitchen to complement the linen upholstery on the furniture.
We have also added some stainless steel in the form of our Sylvine side table and accessorized it with a silver planter.
Our all time favourite Louis armchair looks so stunning in this hallway in front of the fireplace, which has been beautifully styled with faux topiary and stone urns, which in turn mirror each other.
Our Petit Royale ottoman ,which is the must have alternative to a coffee table is used alongside our oak Louis chairs and has some of our all time essential accessories used with it.
You can never go wrong with a faux orchid placed on top of an antique silver tray with a decorative candle. Also are favourite coffee table books too double up as a flat surface in which to place your wine glasses.
