Home is so important to us all, a place to express ourselves, be happy and to feel safe. When the weather is wild and windy, as it has been recently, it’s a good time to look ahead and anticipated warmer days at home. You will find lots of inspiration and help on hand in Wainwright’s Yard.
There’s Lakeland Kitchen, a family-run business that offers the design, supply and installation of beautiful and unique kitchens and bedrooms. Visit their award-winning showroom in Kendal and discover what more than three decades of experience and unparalleled service means. They are also one of the few UK retailers of Leicht & Burbidge Kitchens and deal with household names such as Franke, Siemens, Silestone and NEFF.
Into their second decade of trading are the couple behind Armstrong Ward. Jacqueline and Andrew started their home interiors store in Wainwright’s Yard, growing it from one floor full of 35 supplier products, to a two-storey emporium with 200 suppliers and makers. Every bit of their fabulous shop is beautifully laid out and there’s a strong British vibe with brands like Neom Organics and the Bath House, John Sankey Furniture and Hogben Pottery as well as children’s toys by Maileg, Steiff, Schleich and Moulin Roty. If you are looking to decorate children’s rooms and playrooms there are lots of inspiring buys.
New this year is a healthy home section with plants from The Little Botanical! Jacqueline has sourced a great selection from the company whose designers and plant experts curate a small but perfectly formed range of stylish plants that also easy to look after. As they say, no room styling is complete without some serious foliage to bring everything to life.
