Life of Riley
I came across a wonderful company called Life of Riley which I wanted to share with you. With the autumn approaching and the shooting season well under way, I thought you might find some of the items on their website quite fun. Their drinks cabinet is what really caught my attention. Brilliant to put in the boot of your car on a shoot or a polo / Badminton picnic in the summer.
Launched in 2007 by Sarah Kocher, with a shop in Saffron Walden, Life of Riley started its collection with a mix of vintage pieces and leather goods. The company has since grown hugely from a "one-man" band to a small all-female team offering a fantastic collection online as well as a warehouse in North West Essex providing goods to boutiques, hotels and interior designers across Britain.
"The idea for the leather collection stemmed from the desire to find a classic gift and home range, that could be cherished for many years and be handed down through the generations." says Sarah Kocher.
These items are designed by Sarah and her team and then produced by a family owned company in India, whose craftsmanship and attention to detail is second to none.
Among her collection, you will find some smart Christmas presents: jewellery and watch boxes - Christening and wedding presents: cufflink boxes, coasters, backgammon set - Home accessories: storage baskets, a butler tray, an ice bucket. In addition, you can personalise each item to add an extra touch to your gift.
Watch out for their new products launching online in October, which includes a quirky hook range, a classic round leather tray, a heritage advent calendar box and the ultimate cocktail case.
Life of Riley is available on their website and other online platforms such as notonthehighstreet.com, hardtofind.com in Australia and giftslessordinary.com in Singapore. Their items can be shipped all round the world including Australia, New Zealand, Canada, USA, Dubai, and Singapore.
