The Webb Street Company in Cornwall

August 30, 2017

Oliver Davies and Ben Bailey, a pair of modern-day merchants, turned a seaside art gallery (formerly owned by Oliver’s parents) in Cornwall, England, into the Webb Street Company, a showcase for simple, beautiful housewares, furniture, and objects, with the town itself at its heart. Working with Millard & Flo, a local design outfit, they gutted the interior of the space and introduced a clean-lined combination of new and repurposed materials and lighting (we especially like their lighting scheme, which mixes retro looking fixtures from Original BTC with reclaimed industrial lights and modern Caravaggio pendants designed by Cecilie Manz). Here’s a look.
