As Summer falls into Autumn – it’s time to behold nature’s palette as the leaves are at the peak of their splendour. From the rich golden hues collected in harvest and the molten blaze from the sun, we’re surrounded by deep yellows and browns, made more poignant as the leaves begin to tumble down and the bare branches start to quiver in the wind.

Here at Rowen & Wren we certainly don’t squander the beauty of Autumn. Instead we embrace the cozy autumn days, as we frolic in the leaves and tender to the seasonal blooms in the garden using our Sneeboer Garden Tools and our charming Dudley Hoop Support; to prepare the wilderness for the Winter. As the air begins to crisp under the dusk evening sky, you can wind down on our striking Harmen Chairs, as you start to reminisce on the last of the summer wine – take in the beauty of the season – with your tipple of choice in hand.

Coming very soon to Rowen & Wren, the Autumn Winter 2018 Collection…

Retreating from the world with an outsized cup of tea and a thick tome rarely strays far from the top of our favoured Sunday afternoon pursuits. Both our Bromley and our Finley chairs have thus far proven admirably faithful constants, our ideal reading and snoozing spots for just such languorous days.

In the spirit of perpetual lolling, favourite old book in hand and feet tossed carelessly across an armrest, we present both our Bromley and Finley Chair in new linen upholstery, available in a natural hue and a sophisticated grey. The refined, understated palette is all elegance, perfectly combined with two classic chair shapes, for any season.

Anna Barnett fuses fashion and food in a fresh palette of greens, whites and yellows to brighten up your daily dining experience. Having worked for House of Holland for many years, it’s evident that Anna has a natural flair for creativity and design which is apparent throughout her stylish cook book, “Eat The Week”, incorporating eclectic cuisine from as far a field as Asia as well as more locally inspired dishes from the Mediterranean. We admire how she adds a fresh twist to renowned classic dishes, such as her Ultimate Roasties topped with Zahter – a must try. Each dish looks scrumptious yet unpretentious; not too perfect to recreate at home, Anna uses her culinary imagination to create such dishes as Roasted Garlic and Nettle Risotto (our personal favourite, seen bottom left), it’s innovative in its presentation yet so simple for those day-to-day occasions.

Anna’s style certainly doesn’t stop with her delicious looking food, her beautifully curated instagram content continues to inspire us as she shares her recent adventures to Ibiza and La Granja, providing a sneak-peek into the lifestyle and wide variety of culinary experiences that these superb locations have to offer. 

Whether you want to explore Anna’s recent escapades for holiday inspiration, you’re simply looking for a stress-free supper, an extravagant weekend treat, or for effortless styling ideas, do check out Anna Barnett’s website here for everything lifestyle – it won’t disappoint.

To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow. Anticipation is everything; the sight of blooms, sown just as the nights have drawn in and the sun has bowed out gracefully, peeking eagerly out of the soil at Summer’s return, never fails to deliver unalloyed elation. We believe a liberal scattering of prettily planted hand-thrown terracotta pots – complete with charming idiosyncrasies – completes the rustic scene in the garden, along with our elegant plant structures in Weathered Zinc, Galvanised Iron, or Brass, all providing a sculptural platform for nature itself to take centre stage.

There’s nothing more precious than a motherly bond with her young. Just recently we’ve discovered Thirteen Tree’s (@thirteentrees), who portrays a wonderful array of child friendly content by expressing her great lust to explore and craft with her daughter Rosie (Rosie is the adorable little person who features throughout Claire’s images). Some of our favourite visuals include their charmingly delicate bubble art and homemade woodland story counters; each perfectly naive and sentimental. We can’t help but admire Rosie’s interaction with the variety of mediums to assemble her subtly sweet masterpieces, shown in the bottom left (one of our fond favourites). Children are naturally full of curiosity and joy, which is certainly emphasised through Thirteen Tree’s ever-growing instagram feed; using the power of imagination to create an underlining note of happiness within her daughter. 

If you’d like to explore more of Thirteen Trees ever-growing content, you’ll be sure to be inspired by their wild-schooling adventures documented here.

As the sun dims into darkness, our enamelware, daubed with fresh Mediterranean-style vivid blue brushwork, and our weighty glassware are beautifully set off by dotted tea lights in shallow terracotta pots. For in the words of the great Francis Bacon, the garden is “the purest of human pleasures” – and that goes just as much for night time revelling as daytime toiling.

Re-wilding our world to it’s natural uncultivated state is a topic that shouldn’t be overlooked; this certainly isn’t the case for Sons of Urnaturaen. Recently we’ve thoroughly enjoyed perusing through her captivating, raw content; exploring green fashion and organically grown vegetables, while expressing her mission to put the earth first. The Austrian Alps provide the perfect location for the mother of three to tell her platonic story; through her mix of flora and interaction with the wilderness. Our best-loved images (positioned top centre and top right) capture a real sense of enjoyment in the garden and how they share their love of living off the land. As John Muir once said, “Keep close to nature’s heart…and break clear away, once in a while, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean”. As we embrace summer-solstice, it’s paramount to relish these glorious mellow days to take on new spontaneous adventures in the finest country locations; to cleanse our mind and body from the pollution that filters through our favoured cities. 

You can find more wondrous content here on Sons of Urnaturaen’s website and if you would like to feel inspired by her enchanting activism, be sure to follow (@sonsofurnaturaen).

Whether he’s green fingered; immersed in the nature of the garden, or prefers to indulge in an evening beer – we want to wish every Dad, Daddy, Father and Pops a very happy Father’s Day.(With a special mention to our number one follower, Father, Grandfather, Bampa and Clematis grower extraordinaire! x)

Rowen & Wren’s garden collection is an ode to those halcyon days of optimism at its purest. Our elegant plant structures in weathered zinc provide a sculptural platform for nature itself to take centre stage. And as is our guiding principle, subtlety reigns supreme, an ethos embodied by the zinc collection, which has been designed never to gild the lily but to appear timeless, unobtrusive and as an abiding constant in a bucolic tableau. The finish is available across our new metal furniture range, which slips effortlessly into the garden, without fuss or the starkness of the new. As with the very trees and borders themselves, our measure of success is that it should simply seem as if it’s always been there.

The snow has passed, the evenings are lighter and there is finally a hint of spring in the air. This brings with it an invited change in focus to our instagram feed, gone are the wintery white landscapes and in their place we’re enjoying an abundance of green shoots and blooming bulbs. One of our favourite instagramers for capturing such seasonal changes is Scarlett Phoebe Lewis (@_scarlett.l). Scarlett does many things from styling to visual merchandising with a good dose of gathering and collecting in between. Her posts document home and garden life in the Costwolds, as well as her travels around the UK and occasionally overseas. Some of our favourite visuals were taken in Ile de Re where Scarlett took a wonderful series of photos of French properties with beautifully painted shutters and doors in sun bleached coastal shades, the odd one features a pop of red or pink in the form of a stray hollyhock sprouting up. Scarlett’s photos of this area of France have left us craving a visit ever since, so if you also require a little dose of French style we recommend you head over and peruse her feed here.

The thread that runs right through the core of everything we do can be summed up in a word: craftsmanship. Nowhere is that ethos more self-evident than in our Artisan Collection, which celebrates the handmade over the manufactured and champions a return to simpler methods of making.You can peruse our English Artisans collection in full here.
