“How many times in his life would he have given anything to have turned off a main road to find a lost corner like this where he could let the world go by.”
Ian Fleming’s quote from Casino Royal goes someway to capturing the essence of The Lost Corner – quality, balance and creativity are seldom served well when rushed. We want to provide an alternative to fast retail and generic production. We encourage the craftspeople and family businesses we work with around the world to hold true to their ideals and skills, and to resist the temptation of promoting volume or profit margin over quality. We endeavor to understand their stories and importantly how they work. We enjoy this process and developing these relationships is a key pillar of our approach. This is not without its challenges, as many skills have been exported away from Europe, and we also note that in certain cases there are no apprentices. We aspire to provide an interior design service that is creative, inspiring and enjoyable with as much clarity on pricing as possible.
The Lost Corner has three parts: a boutique in Barnes, an online shop and an interior design consultancy.
