Inspired by The Homewood, our National Trust collaboration is an opportunity to illuminate the beauty of modernist design. Our first joint collection comprises a table, a desk, and a floor lamp in soothing Sage Green. A minimum of £15,000 from sales of this collection will support the National Trust in ensuring The Homewood is maintained and loved for future generations.

“Green, as a colour and philosophy is at the heart of everything we do. We care for 500 places, including 250,000 hectares of countryside – from the peaks of Snowdonia and the Lake District, through to moorland, forests and parkland. This collaboration is generating income to help us care for these special places for everyone forever and shine a light on some of our lesser known architectural gems.” Michaela Davies, Brand Licensing Manager, National Trust

Located amid a picturesque woodland garden near Esher in Surrey, The Homewood was designed by Patrick Gwynne for his parents. The self-taught architect put his unique vision into every aspect of the early 20th-century country villa’s design and details, including the furnishings, to produce an unconventional but luxurious family country villa. It was completed in the early summer of 1938 and Gwynne lived in the house for the rest of his life, continuing to keep the building fashionably up to date until his death in 2003.
