It is that time of year when the weather starts changing when it is time to think of cosy nights by the fire. This always gets one thinking about losing the drafts from windows and doors. We have begun pulling our wool curtains that are fully lined to keep in the warmth from our extremely old, somewhat drafty, wattle and daub walls! We are also thinking about changing our finials. As all of our finials are interchangeable it is not a difficult task. Just one that may take many hours to agree!
Recently Ngila Boyd an interior design and decoration expert has featured a Thumper Finial Curtain Pole on her website gallery from a stunning Country house project she masterminded. Ngila has been in this business for over 30 years and has always been proud to support artisans and craftspeople right from the start.
Our work is greatly inspired by nature and we plant a tree for every product that we sell. One year Richard was using a tool – he calls it the Thumper – to thump the roots in firmly. As he did so he suddenly realised that it would make a perfectly shaped finial. It was a particularly cold March afternoon, so he was more that happy to light the forge and produce a curtain pole version. Full story here.
The Thumper finial also works fabulously behind a cooking range as shown here.
