Why I love a new brochure

Sitting down with a new book is about so much more than the text alone. It is about the experience. It is the excitement in not knowing what you will find when you turn the page. When I get a new book, I like to read without distraction. I find a quiet place, make a lovely cup of tea (you just have to really don’t you – either that or a glass of something stronger) and settle down with my virtual do not disturb sign! This is exactly what I do when we receive new client brochures. This week I’ve been lucky enough to get quite a few!


Leafing through ‘The Signature Collection’ from Tetrad featuring Ralph Lauren fabrics, a quote from Dean Martin featured next to The Tuxedo chair leapt out at me. It simply read “In a tuxedo, I’m a star. In regular clothes, I’m a nobody.” It’s clear from looking at the models featured in this brochure that many stars of the show are featured. There is something just so luxurious about the Ralph Lauren fabrics featured and you can see that the values of British craftsmanship which are integral to what Tetrad are ever present.


Next came the News 2017 brochures from Jotul and Scan. New contemporary colour options from Scan include ‘Dusty Green’, ‘Champagne’ and ‘Brown Metallic.’ These work so well alongside the established and popular grey and black finishes as there will always be a call for both classic and contemporary. These exciting new finishes are offered alongside ingenious new models including the Scan 80 and the iconic Scan 5000. Jotul’s new flagship is the Jotul I 620 which is an impressive model. This is a large cast iron insert with an even wider and greater view of the flames than its predecessor.


It was impossible not to be blown away by the imagery in the Apropos brochure. These bespoke glass structures are crafted to provide a seamless bridge into your garden or outside area. It is because they are bespoke that they can be tailored to your exact need – you can be as radical or as conventional as you like! Glass is so versatile which means that it will work so incredibly well in both modern and traditional homes.


Before I knew it, two hours had passed and I had mentally redesigned our home to include a number of wood burners, a Gatsby sofa from Tetrad and had knocked the dining room into the kitchen which was now housed in the most elegant of glass and aluminium structures – well, a girl can dream can’t she? Now please excuse me while I get back to my redesign 🙂
