Created by media lawyer/craftsperson Amanda Bannister, the Craftsman’s Cottage is a luxury holiday home which immerses the guest in fine British craft sourced across England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Here the 17th century carved oak coffer and mid-century Ercol sideboard sit comfortably alongside the 18th century delicately painted landscape painting, further enhanced by the David Mellor tableware, Yorkshire wool curtains and the series of Anglepoise® lamps that feature throughout this remarkable interior. In selecting lamps for the rooms, Amanda chose to showcase both classic and contemporary Anglepoise® designs. Original 1227™ floor lamps designed in the 1930s stand proud in both living room and snug and a pair of Original 1227™ Brass Wall Mounted lamps provide focused light in both the master bedroom and annex, while Type 75™ desk lamps designed eight decades later and featured here in new Margaret Howell custom colours grace both double and twin bedrooms.
