Black & Spiro Today



We've got lots of pretty new things at Black & Spiro. We just had heaps of beautiful new cushions come back from the workroom today and a beautiful old pair of Peacock chairs arrived as well. We also just received a beautiful {hard to find} old work bench and a lovely 1940's round Bentwood table...lots of nice new things to see!! Oh, and the little Pansy painting is a vintage one I picked up when I was in France which is now for sale in the shop.

Hi Anna,

in the image showing the peacock chair you have a Schumacher fabric in the background; does it have a name? It is sooo luxurious at first I thought it was a tapestry.

LOVE all the gorgeous, bright images and items you've been sharing. I am a frequent visitor to your blog and you very rarely fail to inspire!

Thanks, Holly
