Discover our new Arts & Crafts Collection

Last year, one sunny Autumn day the Lovett team went to visit the National Trust property Standen House in rural West Sussex.

The house is an Arts and Crafts family house designed by Phillip Webb. It boasts a fabulous and extensive collection of William Morris prints and furnishing from Morris and Co. and the house is dressed for a weekend stay in the 1920's

The Arts & Crafts movement was more than just about design, it was a feeling of independence, originality and freedom.

Famously there was the Bloomsbury group which was a mix of artists, writers and designers. Virginia Woolf was the most famous among this set of people; who like William Morris mixed with like-mined people


William Morris was a visionary of his time not only was he a designer but a poet and a social activist

Born in 1834 he was to revolutionise and shape the interiors and homes of the Victorian period. Very much influenced by Art Nouveau and it's celebration of flora and forna, Morris designed intricate repeated prints that perfectly translated onto soft furnishings and most famously wallpaper

His most famous Willow Bough print is still sold today and can still be seen in the most stylish of homes

A master of his craft, his influence and ethos is eternal

“Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful." WILLIAM MORRIS

the design process

At Lovett and Co we pride ourselves on using authentic vintage references to create our unique jewellery designs for a modern audience

Our jewellery designer Rachel Lovett scours the country for original trinkets and objet d'art to form new and exciting designs

This famous Willow Bough print as seen upholstered on this day chair at Standen House inspired Rachel to create this delicate and intricate leaf drop earring that has enamelled and cut out leaves that sway gently in the wind. Embodying the natural influence of the Arts & Crafts movement

The Collection consists of hand painted enamel disc drop necklaces and earrings, along with Aventurine Natural Stone pieces, all inspired by our visit

the photo shoot

To best present our new Arts & Crafts collection we sough out a beautiful location for our photo shoot, again in West Sussex, where we had lot's of fun and some help from some furry four legged friends

The owners kindly let us use their beautiful gardens as a backdrop to our new arts and crafts jewellery collection in return for a donation to a local charity - St. Catherine's Hospice
