Welcome to Angel&Boho
Angel&Boho is the home of an Angel at my Table (our original company name)
and our sister company Boho&Co whose designs are available exclusively from our webshop.
HELP US HELP SHELTER
We have added an optional £1 donation to Shelter at our checkout. Their charity is very close to our hearts, one of us having suffered a period of homelessness in their youth and so understanding the importance of a home for everyone, it seemed fitting to link ourselves with our focus on creating beautiful homes, to a charity whose mission statement is:
'Shelter helps millions of people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through our advice, support and legal services. And we campaign to make sure that, one day, no one will have to turn to us for help'
Thank you, in advance for your kindness and generosity.
A TIME FOR CHANGE...AND COVID 19
Our unique ranges of custom-painted furniture, designed and developed over 23 years of trading, were all handled by our own paint workshop team, whether being painted in custom colours or snagged and checked before onward delivery, it handled hundreds of orders each year. Following the loss of our paint workshop manager and in order to keep the company operational, we have been holding the fort, taking over roles in the paint workshop, customer service and even contact-free doorstep deliveries whilst our furniture delivery company has been closed. So sadly, after all these years, we have had to take the difficult decision to close our paint workshop in order to be able to focus on the re-building of our business.
We will continue to sell most of our unique custom-painted furniture ranges at discounted prices, as we can no longer offer a snagging and checking service which the furniture may require. Whilst we appreciate that this solution will not be suitable for some customers, we continue to work with designers and architects - and private individuals - to supply painted or primed furniture, often made to bespoke sizes and at very competitive prices.
We will, as always, be available to talk you through your requirements - our growing off-the-peg painted furniture and upholstered furniture ranges are unaffected by these changes.
ABOUT OUR TEAM
We are a small family-run company, run by myself, Patty, designer, picture-taker etc etc, my partner Paul, who keeps our website and tech running smoothly and deals with all matters relating to finance and logistics; Sam, Pauls' sister - our customer service star - those who have had the pleasure of dealing with her will know that whether it's on the phone or by email, she is always helpful and friendly - thanks to her we get many lovely compliments about our customer service!
We design most of our furniture ranges and our ability to produce many of our painted furniture pieces in bespoke sizes, has made it increasingly popular with interior designers and other specifiers. We design our own fabrics, wallpapers and softgoods under the BohoandCo brand and carefully curate homewares to compliment our style. Our Boho&Co fabric,wallpaper and accessory collections continue to grow, with inspiration from our growing archive of antique documents, fabrics and embroideries.
A VERY SHORT HISTORY...
After many years of slogging away at various careers and stints in foreign lands - we began to paint vintage French furniture and sell it alongside any bits and pieces we felt fitted our burgeoning 'look' at various fairs. We opened our first An Angel at my Table shop in Saffron Walden in Essex in 1997, followed by the second shop in London in 2000 and in 2003, a large store in Belfast - it became clear by 2004 that we were spreading ourselves too thin - buying trips, shop displays, occasionally producing a catalogue, delivering fragile pieces ourselves, and trying to find the time to design and shoot our stuff - it became overwhelming, especially when our beloved London shop was hit simultaneously with loss of local parking and an untenable rent increase - we decided it was time to regroup, retreat to the countryside and concentrate on a web and catalogue business based in a brick barn at Patty's uncle's farm in Essex as part of a rural diversification project for the farm. In 2014, we began to work on fabric and product designs under the brand name Boho&Co and it became clear that it would be simpler to merge the two companies, so, in 2016, we started trading as Angel&Boho. Since then, we have continued to add to our unique ranges of furniture and fabrics, with a new cushion collection launched in 2020, alongside new styles of dining bench, sofas, fabrics and wallpapers and a range of trade furniture and modular kitchen units, designed especially for home refurb projects.
