5ftinf table

Sometimes you stumble across the loveliest of people with the most wonderful sense of style...that something that is just 'there'...something that makes your heart sing whenever you encounter their work and words.  Philippa Stanton is one of those gorgeous people.  I first came across her table on instagram...and yes, it makes me smile (and my heart sing!) every time she shares a picture of it and the daily treasures it holds.  There are of course, other fabulous and equally captivating pictures too, but her table...it has a beautiful spirit that I simply adore.

Philippa also has a penchant for vintage maps...oh to imagine wandering the streets of London in times gone by!  Philippa uses these maps to create unique and individual lamps...and so I commissioned one.  My request...well, let me show you in time...there's a story of course and it's quite possibly one of my most treasured possessions now!

The little brown box that carried my lamp across the seas came with a calendar featuring her lovely table and a sweet note, all tied with vintage map bunting...an early Christmas present indeed!
