The Short Story:
Feather & Marble is an online shop, selling unique home interior & lifestyle products. Established in November 2016 after a trip to Copenhagen, Emily & Ollie started to import key pieces from Denmark and six months later, the website has grown significantly, selling over 1000 items & stocking a selection of unique brands.
The Long Story:
During a trip to visit a friend living in Copenhagen in October 2016, foodie enthusiasts Emily & Ollie wound up in a small restaurant off of Nyhavn to escape the bitter cold & refuel from a day of cycling around the city. They had been told that Kompasset was a great place to try a Smørrebrød, the Danish traditional open sandwich – it didn’t disappoint.
As the waiter brought out a medley of local delicacies such as smoked monkfish & burnt egg, as well as a selection of homemade herb Aquavit – it became clear that the attention to aesthetics mirrored the quality of the food. The setting was an interior lovers dream & the oval plates laden with wild flowers stood out. Inquisitive about the style of these oval serving dishes & the unique finish, Ollie asked the waiter who supplied their tableware & the answer was a local brand called Broste Copenhagen, neatly written out for us on a business card.
Back in the UK a few days after the long weekend abroad, Emily was curious about the Danish brand called Broste & after a little research; it became clear that she wasn’t the only one. The iconic tableware had a lot of fans but the company also created stunning cushions, throws, candles & cutlery. It had everything Emily liked in interiors: premium quality, luxury fabrics & an emphasis on texture.
Texture was to become the heart of Feather & Marble and is the reason behind the company name – the hard & soft materials that feature heavily in home interior design. Rich textiles, handmade ceramics, embroidered detailing – these are the little extras that elevate a piece to be that bit more special are all part of the ethos behind our shop and you won’t find anything on the website that doesn’t reflect this artisan attention to detail.
After producing a website within a month of that first visit to Copenhagen, the first delivery of goods was taken a few days later and much to the surprise of Emily & Ollie – the first sale was that same week. Since that first order, we have received so many emails, phone calls & other orders through the website and just want to say a big thank you to everyone who has helped us turn this passionate side project into a fully fledged business. We continue to take care in selecting & curating key pieces and our original Danish suppliers have expanded to feature a broader range of designs & trends from around the world.
We are constantly looking for new suppliers, often spotting individual makers & designers through channels like Instagram as well as from traditional tradeshows. We also endeavor to ensure our products are responsibly sourced & manufactured. If you have any questions, please get in touch or if you’re interested in having your products stocked, please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
