Jemma Page and Mimmi Waugh launched Orchid in 2002 to specialise in furniture, lighting and accessories from the Far East. From its London and Hampshire stores and online, Orchid delivers throughout the UK and overseas.
Orchid's understanding of its customers is reflected in its meticulous attention to detail, taking into account a wide range of lifestyles and interests. Customers benefit from the design knowledge and experience that Orchid offers, plus its no-quibble, money-back guarantee. Orchid's knowledgeable staff will offer advice on its products, including provenance and original use of the Chinese antique furniture as well as information about care of Chinese and lacquered furniture in general.
The timeless designs available at Orchid include Chinese antique furniture, table lamps and home accessories, reproduction pieces as well as the exclusive Mandarin and Beijing Collections. This Chinese furniture, lighting and the interiors accessories are available in Orchid's London and Hampshire stores, as well as online. Orchid's products and services are regularly featured and loved by the UK's leading monthly interiors magazines and nationwide newspapers.
Jemma and Mimmi travel regularly to China where they work closely with several specialist Oriental antique furniture restorers and Chinese furniture manufacturers for Orchid's reproduction collections. These trips inspire new designs and ideas, resulting in the fresh lifestyle collections featured here. These carefully thought through collections offer traditional oriental designs as well as statement pieces which are harder to find, such as stone statues, shrines and over-sized cabinets.
Orchid works closely with interior designers and supplies bespoke furniture to both residential projects as well as the hotel and leisure sectors who particularly benefit from the made-to-measure and sourcing services which achieve exactly the right design, size and colour.
Orchid uses natural, solid wood sourced with the environment in mind and liaises with its manufacturers to ensure that the wood with which they work is ecologically sound.
