Perkins & Morley has teamed up with us to offer you the chance to win a Burr Parsley Green Deckchair to enjoy this Springtime!
Perkins & Morley are design duo Jill Perkins and Jan Morley – two women who produce different, unique designs and have a passion for cards, gifts and home-wares that celebrate nature, wildlife and our landscape.
The brand story started over 30 years ago when Jill and Jan both studied graphic design at Middlesex Polytechnic. Their shared passions for art, design, travel and nature led them to travel to Sri Lanka where they created designs for a wooden toy manufacturer. Still designing for other companies, they branched out into tableware, and then, in 2010, an idea from Jill and a drawing of an otter from Jan sparked the beginnings of their own brand.
The otter drawing became part of their best-selling Collective Noun range of greetings cards and giftware, loved by customers all over the globe.
The brand is proud to say they design and make everything in the UK; their cards are printed in Essex, the tea towels in Redcar and a range of gifts including coasters, key-rings, clocks, and chalkboards are all hand-made in Pershore.
Perkins & Morley’s newest ‘Vintage Flora & Ferns’ collection takes its inspiration from the Victorian walled garden where a sense of overgrown order prevails. Butterflies flit happily through flora and ferns whilst limes green, greys, aqua blues, sage green and purple make this a stunning collection.
With Springtime in full swing and Summer just around the corner, you could be enjoying your garden or decking area in a handmade UK deckchair. These FSC certified beech wood deckchairs will bring a splash of colour and personality to your home wherever you decide to put them.
