‘Discover design with distinction’ – we look at the new pieces from independent interiors brand Atkin & Thyme
When it comes to independent interior brands, Atkin & Thyme is a true gem. They specialise in fine furniture and home accessories, and their website is a beautiful curation of pieces their team have handpicked from artisans across the world. They specifically work with crafters who only produce limited, low-volume batches, so often customers have to pre-order to avoid disappointment.
The range of pieces at Atkin & Thyme is broad, with plenty of chic sideboards, drinks cabinets and coffee tables to be discovered. Their collections often channel the glamour of the art-deco era, with curved shapes, standout velvet upholstery and brass structures. They certainly don’t shy away from pattern and detail, and A-list interior designers such as LA-based Kelly Wearstler are firm fans.
Atkin & Thyme have plenty of coffee table and side table designs with glass tops, which can look fantastic in a bright, light-filled glazed extension. If you’re considering a glazed extension such as a garden room or orangery for your home, you may find our guide for selecting furniture pieces of interest: Unique furniture pieces for your garden room.
