My Story

My name is Nicolette Tabram and I am a designer with a love of pattern.

I trained as a printed textile designer and have designed prints and accessories for a range of high st retailers. The first piece of furniture I painted was for my mum's Mother's Day present over twenty years ago. I returned to furniture painting as an antidote to designing on a computer and a need to reconnect with paint.

My range of modern stencils evolved slowly as a way of adding pattern to the furniture I was painting. Each stencil begins life as a drawing, which I create in my little studio at the end of the garden. They are inspired by my travels around the world. One day somebody asked me if I sold the stencil I had used on a piece of furniture and you could say that was my light bulb moment.

Each piece of furniture is hand painted and decorated with stencils. They are one-off pieces designed for people who are looking for a little originality in their homes
