Hello, I'm Tamara and welcome to Reclectic Emporium. In 2014, I finally did what I have been wanting to do for many years, and spent a year studying Decorative Art History at the V&A Museum in London and volunteering at the beautiful Georgian gem, Kenwood House and at the archives of the Institute of Education, both in London. This was a big change from a career in law and advertising and I could not be happier.
My home is filled with pieces that span the centuries and the globe, instilled in me by my parents and all their wonderful pieces dotting their home. Each piece intrigues me - who did it belong to, what's the story behind it?
I constantly move things around my home creating eclectic displays of pieces from different times with a contemporary bit thrown in, which my husband and two daughters find most amusing.
And so reclectic was launched in 2014. i also love design and historic pattern and created an "Art Furniture" collection and tapestry wall panels, in collaboration with two wonderful designers,
I hope you enjoy browsing in my shop and website, and find something that you love.
