graham and green...


a few of our favorites from graham and green...

a beautifully neutral collection of pieces.  a bit eclectic. sweet little pops of color...

a little from founder antonia graham:

"I have fond memories of travelling to buy kelims and rugs in Istanbul in fur lined boots in the freezing, but hospitable carpet warehouses and during a very cold weekend in Beijing we went to the farmers market to discover a girl selling beautiful traditional Chinese lanterns. She was the daughter of a well known actor in the National Theatre and lantern making was the family’s way of supplementing his income! We placed a small order at first, but we have been ordering regularly since then. That is exactly why I love doing what we do, forging relationships on chance meetings and bringing beautiful things back for others to enjoy...

We like to think that our customers care about their surroundings as much as they care about their clothes and how they look. It’s a lifestyle. A contemporary mix of old and new, things brought home from travels abroad, memories of people dear, put together in an interesting way so that it works and provides a peaceful and inspiring background for today’s busy life."
