Seaford Sunset Shots

Well although it was fun, don't let these photos fool you into thinking we were in tropical climes. We needed serious defrosting with the help of hot toddies after this shoot but so happy with the results. Thank you Quinny and Andy, all the teenagers and Finn, couldn't have done it without you. #madeinsussex #mannequin #planters #floral #legs #furniture #fullmannequinlamps #lamp #quirky #Sunset

Eastbourne Christmas Market 2018

Just thought I would post a few photos of Eastbourne Christmas Market and take the opportunity to wish everyone a very Happy Christmas, I hope you're all ready! The weather was so kind on the three days we chose to attend the market, the sun shone and the shoppers were out! An extra bonus was having my eldest daughter there to keep me company and do the coffee and croissant runs as she had a couple of unexpected days off college. It's always hard to decide what to take to an

Nalser and GG at The Pelirocco Hotel

So this week we delivered the very gorgeous GG and Nalser to Hotel Pelirocco, what a venue! GG is a tall lady lamp clad in grass print design and topped with retro sunflower shade. Nalser is kitted out in upcycled rich brown leather and finished with a William Morris vintage print shade. I don't believe there is anything else quite like them so do check them out in the bar at one of Brighton's coolest venues. #quirky #madeinsussex #Brighton #commission #pub #lamp #floral #upc

Dolly Fixtures at Wyntercon 5

So Wyntercon was a blast of a weekend from start to finish! The South Coast's largest fantasy and sci-fi event was held under a huge circus-style big top in Princes Park on the 22nd and 23rd September. It was a first for Dolly Fixtures and lots of interesting characters popped by our stand. Kelle and Cocker the quirky hologram giants proved very popular and created lots of interest, even on their journey to and from the event. Now back in the Party Shack until their next outi

Artwave O'clock

Artwave took place in August and earl September here in Sussex and Dolly fixtures were lucky enough to take part at two venues. The first weekend, in the stunning Gote Farm Barn in Ringmer as guest artist with The Ringmer Collective and the second at the beautiful Upper Lodge. Both weekends were a huge success and we can't wait for next year. #planters #madeinsussex #cushion #upcycle #legs #mannequin #Denim #quirky #furniture #Visualdisplay #leather #Cushion #upcycled #fullma

Batman Tribute!

Adam West is fondly remembered for his role as Batman, which he played from 1966 to 1968. After his recent passing, The Alma, located in Islington, a movie theme pub at the heart of the local community, commissioned me to make a suiting tribute. #pub #commission #quirky #furniture #lamp #Batman #superhero #fullmannequinlamps
