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 believes everyone should have a home. They help millions of people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through our advice, support and legal services.
Thank you, in advance for your kindness and generosity.
ABOUT OUR TEAM
We are a small family-run company, run by Patty, designer, picture-taker etc etc, her partner Paul, who keeps the 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! And of course we are supported by the many hard-working folk who produce our furniture and homewares in small UK and European factories.
ABOUT OUR DESIGNS
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 homewares under the BohoandCo brand and carefully curate accessories 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, fabrics and homewares.
