 Our new design celebrates 400 years of William Shakespeare.

Next year we may well be celebrating another famous Englishman, for 15th October 2017 will be the 30th anniversary of The Tempest for which he is famous.  Was it a tragedy, or a comedy, that fateful weather forecast in which Michael Fish (for it is he) downplayed, indeed MOCKED the very idea that a hurricane was on its way? A bit of both, methinks.

I'm saying nothing

This is a tea towel btw.

Condiments and Cruets

Cheery TV chef Ainsley Harriot, always referred to his seasonings as 
Suzy Salt and (see below) Percy Pepper 

If you too like your your pepper to have a personality, and consider yourself to be both 
sort yourself out with our spicy new apron, tea towel and oven gloves.

Salt n Pepa

Here is a NEW design which will be making its way onto a bevy of Lush Designs products

When we were lasses, way back in the last century, we used to flick our bad hair to THESE crazy ladies doing the do:  Push It

Spot the connection.

Perhaps we should contact them and ask if they'd like some Salt and Pepper design Oven Gloves?

Poetry...not just for romantics...

No indeed,

We like to think that TS Eliot would have enjoyed using a Lush Designs notebook,

although he managed to write the magnificently unromantic
Love song of J. Alfred Prufrock without one ...

Let us go then, you and I,
When the evening is spread out against the sky
Like a patient etherized upon a table;
Let us go, through certain half-deserted streets,
The muttering retreats
Of restless nights in one-night cheap hotels
And sawdust restaurants with oyster-shells:
Streets that follow like a tedious argument
Of insidious intent
To lead you to an overwhelming question ...
Oh, do not ask, “What is it?”
Let us go and make our visit.

Take your pick and pluck a lovely little notebook from our range and see if you can start a whole new career as a poet...

This new collection of ceramics and light shades in engraved glass and decorative earthen ware alludes to its Autumnal inspiration of pods and seeds and sturdy but mysterious trees. Of fungal blooms and lichen forms and rich berries on frosty mornings.

SEASON of mists and mellow fruitfulness! 
  Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun; 
Conspiring with him how to load and bless 
  With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eaves run; 
To bend with apples the moss'd cottage-trees,         5
  And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core; 
    To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells 
  With a sweet kernel; to set budding more, 
And still more, later flowers for the bees, 
Until they think warm days will never cease,  10
  For Summer has o'er-brimm'd their clammy cells.
