Tomorrow (Thursday 22nd August) we celebrate the success of taxidermist Kim Zoe Wagner’s exhibition at Pitfield London. Our private view party kicks off at 6pm, until 9pm, and you will be provided with the usual complementary drinks from our café!
As well as truly wonderful framed pieces, mainly birdlife such as bright canaries with a sprinkling of piranhas too, Kim will be displaying freestanding pheasants and a peahen. None of the animals Kim uses have been killed for the purpose of taxidermy.
Alongside the exhibition, you can get a sneak preview of our Autumn/Winter collections, which will be available from Selfridges from October. Come and join us at 31-35 Pitfield Street for vintage, reinvented and modern curiosities!
Don’t forget to RSVP firstname.lastname@example.org before end of play today…
Is it lunch time yet? This week, we’ve launched our cafe’s new ‘summer’ (good weather not guaranteed!) menu. We have two mouthwatering menus, which will alternate each week, so whenever you visit be sure to try something new and exciting, even if you’re a Pitfield regular.
As well as delicious new breads, flavoursome fillings (for the experimental and more conservative eaters) and amazing new summer salad varieties, we also introduce Pitfield Protein Pots – perfect for those in need of a health kick, no carb dieters, gluten intolerants or if you just fancy a lighter lunch one day. Pitfield Protein Pots come bread free and we’ll always have a meat, fish or vegetarian option on offer.
Pictured are two of our protein pots: free range roast chicken with chargrilled peppers, and crayfish with wild rocket or avocado and tangy lemon mayonnaise. Also above are two of our new sandwiches in the summer range, succulent roast chicken, spicy chorizo, piquillo peppers and lemon mayonnaise on rock salt and rosemary focaccia bread, plus crayfish and wild rocket with lemon mayonnaise on a healthy seeded panini loaf.
The full menus will be live on the cafe page of our website soon so do check back to whet that appetite!
Elsewhere in our concept store, taxidermist Kim Zoe Wagner’s exhibition will launch on 15th July. Our sale rages on too so pop by to pick up a bargain… or three.
Have a great week!
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!

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 email@example.com – for the invite, see here.

Handwoven Jute Bag, £35 (more designs available in store)
You know we LOVE unique homewares at Pitfield London but did you know we sell fashion accessories too? To complement our Jade Jagger designer jewellery pop-up shop, we have a range of gorgeous summery tote bags. On-trend, these cute handwoven jute shoppers are the perfect accesory, brightening up a grey English summer. Go funky with striking striped designs featuring horizontal panels in block colour or stay classic with elegant black or cream.
Not only do they look fab, they’re eco-friendly and fairly traded items, blending traditional artisanal skills with contemporary design. Taking up to 5 days to complete, the finished bags are stylish and functional! Grab yours now.
Durable and inventive, Pitfield London’s cabinet broom (£33) is 147cm long and created with two pieces of retro-looking waxed beechwood and horsehair brushes. Suitable for cupboard recesses, it is also known as the ‘behind the cupboard brush’ because it’s ideal for cleaning behind your wardrobe and in hard to reach places. Store easily and practically right behind your cabinet.
There’s nothing more unsightly (well, almost nothing), than a stack of dirty dishes in the kitchen. Pitfield’s delightful dishwashing brushes (£2.50 each – what a bargain!) certainly make the kitchen sink look a little more stylish. Our black soft horsehair brush heads are perfect for washing cups and plates, whilst the cream coloured stiffer, hard plant fibre brushes can be used on pots and pans.
Not only are they absolutely beautiful, Pitfield London’s collection of feather dusters present ‘specialist exterminators, that engage in battle against spider webs, dust bunnies and fluff hideaways’! With their long varnished wooden handles and stunning, luxury ostrich feather heads, there’s no corner these dusters cannot reach. Pictured is the small feather duster with striking black feathers (£15), medium sized duster with especially fabulous large feather head (£25) and the ‘noble’ long feather duster, which features a waxed beechwood handle and sleek leather cuff (£28). Don’t you just LOVE them?
Baring in mind that they say 90% of dust is made up of skin, there’s simply no excuse to leave it settling anywhere in your home or office. Our innovative dust brush (£8.50) is 70cm long, extremely flexible and made with the strongest yet soft dark goat’s hair. Dust the cracks between your freeview box and DVD player, your iPod dock or any tight space you’ve struggled to reach before! Calling all OCD cleaners, your house really will be spotless.
