House Call: Angie Lewin in England

Issue 2 · Bold Patterns · January 10, 2008

While perusing the online site for Angie Lewin's shop, St. Jude's, we noticed photos of her Bloomsbury-esque village house—parts of which date to the 1600s—originally published in Country Living. "We love the Festival of Britain period, when designers were shaking off the sense of postwar austerity and introducing more playful shapes and forms, such as Lucienne Day with her abstract fabrics and Ernest Race with his neatly curved furniture," says Angie's husband Simon. Throughout the house, the couple uses fabrics designed by Angie Lewin, St. Judes, and pieces by artists such as Elizabeth Merriman (see her work at St. Judes Gallery.
