Welcome to 2014 and welcome back to our blog! This month here at Pitfield London we are extremely excited about the collaborations and events already lined up for the new year. We can’t stop posting about our restored and reinvented furniture pieces, wallpapers and carpets, vintage pieces, retro lighting and especially our fantastic meringues and cakes… everyday there’s something new!
The shop is very busy while we’re still rocking our January sale, we have so many unique and incredible pieces in store waiting for you, up to 50% off! This week we are particularly loving the Karamell blankets, the super colorful enamel tea pots and our little friends, the birds framed by taxidermist Kim Zoe Wagner. We are substantially expanding our bespoke range of furniture and also there is 20% off on all lighting!

Let’s be honest, socks are a stocking filler! That toiletry gift set you bought someone last year? It’s still in the bathroom cupboard. Yet another box of chocolates? Get out of here!
Pitfield London is for the creative and curious, for those who don’t want to get their loved ones the ‘same old’! Our shop staff would be delighted to chat through ideas and offer suggestions for gifts with more imagination, be it an investment piece of quirky reinvented furniture, or an inexpensive vintage ornament with charm. Whatever your budget, it’s our owner Shaun Clarkson‘s promise that everyone should be able to take home even a snippet of his fantastical lifestyle!
This season, we have a huge range of gift items, alongside our seasonal stock of Christmas decorations and cards, festive florals and stunning products. Don’t delay, visit our Christmas Bazaar today and tick off that shopping list…
Phew, all shopped out? Just linger in our cafe and revitalise with a freshly brewed coffee, tasty baguette or indulgent cream cake!

Pitfield London were asked to participate in an exciting project, which culminated last week. NYC advertising giants Grey and global hospitality brand Marriott Hotels identified Pitifeld London as a location they would love to visit that reflects innovation in everyday life and which combined a shop, café and exhibition gallery so creatively. Go us!
Marriott’s Travel Brilliantly site launched a multi-channel marketing campaign, asking consumers for ideas on how to improve regular travel. A variety of unique ideas were then brought to a panel of judges and the winning concept was selected (more to be revealed by Marriott themselves). The winner was the lovely Anjana Kallarackal. Along with a media representative (top US food blogger Ashley from Not Without Salt) and teams from Marriott and Grey, Anjana was welcomed to Pitfield. They chatted to (and filmed!) owner Shaun Clarkson about his vision for the space and thoughts towards a healthy lifestyle.
We all had a fantastic time chatting about our food and design passions and can’t wait to see the film clips on the website shortly. Watch this space!
PS. In other news, Pitfield London is proud to be taking part in Shop Small and Small Business Saturday (7th December 2013)! American Express Cardmembers will receive a £5 statement credit when they spend £10 or more in participating stores – like us! Happy shopping…
The Pitfield London team had a fantastic time at our private view party celebrating the Fiona Paxton exhibition last Thursday. The fabulous duo behind our Pitfield People tumblr blog were on hand to capture the evening, which was buzzy and bustling! We wished the Fiona Paxton jewellery brand a happy 5th birthday whilst guests mingled in-store. Guests enjoyed refreshing Paloma cocktails courtesy of Jose Cuervo – the recipe uses tangy grapefruit soda, a squeeze of lime and fresh grapefruit garnishes. Simply delicious!
To get your paws on Fiona’s signature geometric designs, visit the exhibition until 24th November. Limited edition collaborative products (a playfully printed rug and luxurious cotton sateen cushions) will leave a legacy in store, available to purchase throughout the year in our shop.
It was great to see a brilliant turn out of Pitfield London’s dedicated customers, Fiona Paxton fans and press from the Mail on Sunday to top fashion magazines and bloggers. We hope everyone had an enjoyable evening!
What’s more, just how wonderful is our pop-up, Pitfield Winchester looking? We think the bold citrus colours with calming grey and pastel green looks divine. If you fancy escaping the city, don’t forget to pay The Brooks shopping centre a visit!
Pitfield London loves this time of year; we hope you had a happy Halloween and are looking forward to the fireworks still to come tomorrow! The winter celebrations don’t stop there as this Thursday, 7th November at 6-9pm, we’re celebrating our collaboration with jewellery designer Fiona Paxton… alongside the brand’s 5th birthday!
Not only is Fiona exhibiting her striking geometric pieces from the past 10 seasons, there’s also collaborative products to purchase exclusively from Pitfield. A striking handmade Indian rug, with Fiona Paxton’s recognisable playful print, is taking pride of place in the gallery. Cotton sateen cushions have also been designed with a bold print in gorgeous blue and purple shades – the designs are limited edition so grab them whilst you can.
If you’d like to join us for the private view party then please RSVP email@example.com by Wednesday 6th November to ensure you’re added to our guest-list on time. We look forward to meeting you there with grapefruit soda tequila cocktails in hand, courtesy of our brilliant drinks sponsor for the event, Jose Cuervo.
Don’t panic if you can’t make the party because the Fiona Paxton show will be in place until 24th November. See you at 31-35 Pitfield Street soon!
