Ever since Natural History was founded we’ve been asked where our collections are stocked in real, bricks-and-mortar shops and special online stores. Over the next few weeks we will be publishing Q&As from some of our favourite stockists across the UK, gaining an insight into their inspirations and passions.
We’ve been speaking to Jane McIntyre of Jane McIntyre Design in Winchester. Jane sources products from around the world, carefully selecting bed linen, lighting, furniture and other home accessories of unusual yet beautiful design, and showing them off in her Georgian town house turned quirky retail space.
