It’s a really good feeling to walk into a store as fine as Heal’s and see your products on the shelves. We went into Heal’s on Tottenham Court Road just as Christmas was getting into full swing, with festive decorations and great gift ideas everywhere.
The merchandising was done with flair and artistry. It certainly didn’t disappoint. It was a thrill to see our wares displayed amongst all the gorgeous, quality products that have been carefully selected by the Heal’s buying team.
… and everywhere we turned, there were pepperings of our Low-Res Apples, Pears, Oranges and Lemons, spicing up the tableware and shelving.
As home accessories, our ‘Low-res’ Fruit ornaments work well to inject colour into an interior.
The fruit’s faceted shapes also seem to resonate with the current trends for bold, graphic prints and strong, geometric forms, like on this lovely Marimekko teaware (above).
Other arresting products included these small sculptural black and white ceramic vases & tealights by Finnsdottir.
And this set of large glass decanters by Pols Potten, called ‘Bubbles and Bottles’. They were just so simple and appealing, it was hard to walk past.
The work of Taz Pollard was almost irresistible. She designs and makes these large pitchers and bottles, (below). The jugs have rubber handles, secured with cable ties. Genius.
Heal and Son Ltd have a long heritage. The family business started off designing, manufacturing and retailing beds and bedding in the very early 19th Century. They’ve occupied the same purpose-built store on Tottenham Court Road for over 150 years, albeit with a few additions. Now with five other branches, Heal’s is a champion of British Design and quality manufacturing.
