In the beginning were the words...
Posted on April 24 2018
Welcome, welcome to my blog!
It’s always hard to know what to say but as you’re here I’m guessing you’re a bit like me – busy, but keen to find new and stylish things for your home which are well-made and a little bit different.
Perhaps, however, it’s also because you’re curious about the inspiration or story behind what you choose to bring into your home, too?
I started my company, Leonora Hammond, because I wanted some typographical art for my house and just couldn’t find anything that was right. So I designed it myself and everything just grew organically from there.
Although I’ve moved into product design – I’m especially proud of my make-up bags (which you can check out here) and I’ll soon be launching some amazing loungewear – words will always remain one of my real passions.
Ever since I was a child I’ve collected and curated little proverbs and quotes from Shakespeare – my children will tell you I still recite them. When I was younger I used to write a lot of poems; playing with words, gentle rhymes, exploring the ideas that emerged.
I studied English Literature and developed a real love of art from my father, who was a Professor in this subject and studied in Florence. So although I was surprised to find myself running a company like mine, perhaps I shouldn’t have been.
As it is, I am really looking forward to sharing our news, thoughts, tips and the inside story of what’s happening at Leonora Hammond over the coming months.
We’re hoping to start a newsletter soon, to keep you in the loop about new products and offers but, in the meantime, please look out for our email confirming that you’re still interested in keeping in touch.
When you get it, hit confirm, and we’ll do the rest!
Until then, look out for our next blog where we’ll be talking weddings. Not just because of a certain event at Windsor Castle (congratulations Harry and Meghan!) but because we know how important it is to find the perfect gift for every happy couple.
