A UK Shop Specializing in Midcentury Spanish Design

Christine Chang Hanway September 25, 2012

While working in Southern Spain, interior designer Christine Shepard fell in love. Was it the lifestyle? The sunny climate? A handsome Iberian, perhaps?

Actually, none of the above. A woman after our own hearts, Shepard discovered a passion for 1950s chairs and lighting, especially those from the Spanish manufacturer FASE in Madrid, and decided to run with it. Upon her return to the UK, she opened The Kula & Co. in St. Leonards on Sea offering 1950’s chairs and FASE lamps (of course) among an ever-changing mix of carefully selected vintage furnishings including tables, paintings, glass, and prints.

Above: Shepard's trademark pairing of a midcentury chair with a FASE lamp; both displaying distinctive lines.

Above: The Kula & Co. also offer interior design services. See Kula & Co. for further information.

Above: This scene could be from Mad Men; a pair of 1950s cocktail chairs with their original upholstery and a FASE Presidente S' lamp.

Above: The Kula and Co. has a continually changing display of vintage furnishings.

Above: A pair of Parker Knoll armchairs, completely restored and upholstered.

Above: A view from the street shows Shepard's array of vintage finds.
