Mason & Painter takeover
Wednesday, 4 March 2015 | SBC Shops
For the second year running Mason & Painter have been invited to takeover the Festival Terrace shop for the month of March. For this exciting second run they have worked within the concept of Flora & Fauna to re-create their retail emporium on Columbia Road, home to the famous east end flower market, and styled with the same vision and maverick mix. Their second, larger shop, opened just last month and is already creating a buzz amongst bloggers, stylists, interior decorators and London shoppers.
Pistachio Seedpod tote bag, £15 Chelsea Flower Show teatowel, £14, Columbia Road teatowel, £14 - Available online here.
A handpicked collection of vintage finds and contemporary products, all specially curated to fit the floral theme sit alongside some new product launches including Mason & Painter branded soya wax candles, greetings cards, cushions, teatowels and a new colourway of the Seedpod tote bag – designed by Michelle Mason and originally commissioned by Southbank Centre shops.
The Royal Festival Hall first opened its doors, for the Festival of Britain, in 1951. With the building’s heritage in mind Mason & Painter have set out a collection of re-claimed garden furniture, planters, vintage fruit crates and seed packets, watering cans and grain sack fabrics made into cushions – all from the early 1950s onwards, together with a careful edit of new Spring / Summer ranges, from contemporary designers, to compliment and sit alongside the main product ranges already stocked within the RFH shops. All vintage items, products and furniture will are for sale.
The Mason & Painter takeover will be in Southbank Centre Shops Festival Terrace Shop until the end of March 2015.
