Summerill & Bishop

One of our favourite places for tablecloths and home accessories, this is the place to head to for summer dining gift inspo. Founded by June Summerill and Bernadette Bishop, two great friends with a truly effortless and unique sense of style, they have always kept to their rule that ‘if they wouldn’t hang it up on the wall as art, it shouldn’t be on the table as a tablecloth.’ We also love their gift-wrap option at checkout for a beautifully wrapped pressie in white tissue paper, decorated with natural raffia and a sprig of olive and a handwritten message of your choice.
