Freshen up with Home Furnishings

Are you worried your home will look gloomy and unloved once you take down your Christmas decorations? We have just the thing to brighten your place up! From 3rd January we will be featuring lampshades, cushions, prints & bags by Made By Ilze

Ilze is a graphic designer, originally from South Africa but firmly based in Bristol.  She designs and puts together all her homewares and is heavily influenced by the iconic images of our city as well as the colourful flora and fauna of her birthplace. In fact her lampshades with Bristol designs are one of the most popular pieces in our gallery

Ilze is very particular about sourcing the best quality fabrics, paper and printers, and all her designs and products are made in Britain, which reduces environmental impact and stimulates local economy.

The aim of Ilze’s work is to offer something a bit different to the norm. Eclectic pieces without borders, and if it generates a smile, that makes her happier than anything else.

Ilze’s colourful design of tea and cakes was selected as one of the Gloucester Road Art Banners and can be seen at the upper part of Gloucester Road. Her Bristol hot air balloon design is featured in the Room 212 calendar for August
