Get Your Hands Dirty In London’s Best Workshop Studios

If you’re anything like us, you must be a big fan of DIY projects. We love challenging ourselves and learning more about disciplines & techniques we know little of.

Let’s talk about where you eat

How many times in the past week have you had your lunch in peace – without checking notifications or attempting to respond to emails? How often have you had your lunch away from your desk?

PENSON’s Pick: Loft Conversions

I remember learning from a young age that if somebody had a loft conversion they were admired by all.

PENSON’s Picks: Beds

If you enjoy spending time in bed as much as we do, I guarantee you’ll be interested in this week’s PENSON’s Pick: wouldn’t it be so much more acceptable to waste away your weekends beneath the sheets if your bed was magnificent enough to be considered a work of art? Maybe you could even be...
PENSON's Picks: Patterns

PENSON’s Picks: Patterns

Patterns are the key to great design and can make or break the composition of a room. But it isn’t only your walls you can use a pattern in to add an extra layer to a space, patterned bedsheets, posters, pin boards, cushions, or even just stationery sat on a desk will have a huge...
