You may have noticed there’s an intruder in town! Namely, Pitfield London‘s new robot friend. What shall we call him? He looks like a Bob, or maybe Barry…
The wooden robot and friends make up our brand new window installation, the creation of HOTTOPIXXX. Not content with one ‘x’, they picked three! HOTTOPIXXX loved our store, believing it nearly matched their own level of quirkiness, so contacted us with a view to work on an installation together. We let them take creative control and this is what emerged! The team are made up of 6 designers, illustrators and artists (namely Daniele, Dionne, Els, Fin, Geneva and Josh – see their website for individual links); together they produce large scale installation pieces for events and cool locations – e.g. us! The window installation was unveiled at last week’s private view alongside our current exhibition, ‘Common Birds’ by Louise West.
For a limited time only, admire the wooden window explosion, complete with mushy peas van (why not?) and let us know what you think to our new look over on Facebook and Twitter. Don’t forget to sign up to our newsletter too so you won’t miss out on future exhibitions and events.
Thanks HOTTOPIXXX, we think the window couldn’t get wackier!
We LOVE this monochrome shoot with bright kelly green pops that appeared in the latest Homes and Gardens magazine. Note the Pitfield London ornaments and furniture! Check out the Green Leather Stud Chair and White Cockatoo Statue (customised in the photoshoot) on our website. There’s a parrot available too!
Talking of birds, we have the brilliant Louise West’s ‘Common Birds’ exhibition on show until 20th June. Join us this Thursday 6th June, 6-9pm, for our private view and a tipple or two! RSVP firstname.lastname@example.org – for the invite, see here.
We look forward to seeing you there!

We said goodbye to our first exhibition of 2013, Designersblock x Pitfield London, at the end of last month. The colourful madness that was 30+ designers from Designersblock fused with eclectic Pitfield products has been replaced with an inspiring vignette for the new season! Elsewhere, our window display is showcasing a spring cleaning theme with assorted pieces both practical and pretty!
Back to our exhibition gallery, you’ll find a stunning room set, which amalgamates investment furniture pieces with cheap and cheerful delights from a retro telephone to vintage ornaments and even some wacky taxidermy!
Tell us what you think over on Facebook and Twitter – we also have Pinterest and Instagram!
Next up in our exhibition gallery (from mid May) is a bird cluttered extravaganza! Illustrator Louise West will be displaying her beautiful sketches in an installation dedicated to birdies! Also on show will be a bright wallpaper, designed in-house, with Louise’s work and inexpensive mementos for all to enjoy! Choose a bright and cheery mug with bird illustration or even a lime green tea towel with owl and humorous slogan. Watch this space for all the details and don’t forget to sign up to our newsletter to receive important dates for your diary and invitations to the exhibition launches!
Pitfield London owner Shaun Clarkson throws open the doors to his home this Friday 22nd March. Selected as an inspirational North London home, Livingetc readers and House Tour participants can step into the life of Shaun, taking in his colourful, curiosity packed residence!
