About Katie Bonas

Katie Bonas is a luxury online lifestyle and interiors boutique celebrating great British design and country style. Specialising in beautiful home accessories and gifts, we are proud to offer a mix of products designed by Katie herself as well as other high quality British made products.

Inspired by my love of the countryside, I am constantly on the look out for beautiful products that I would like to have in our own home - in fact, almost all of them are in my Cotswold cottage already!

I started my business in 2010 after moving out of London for a complete lifestyle change, and to be with my husband Henry, and our two very spoilt black labradors, Lussa and Islay. Having always had a passion for antiques, I combined this with my creativity and started a furniture business specialising in handpainted vintage and antique furniture. I am now very excited to launch this new website bringing a wider range of beautiful and British products to my customers.

I particularly hope you will enjoy my Hide & Seat collection of beautiful cowhide products, and my new exclusive range of tweed, as much as I have enjoyed designing them.

Painted and distressed furniture is still the largest collection in my product range. I get so much enjoyment from giving vintage and antique pieces a new personality whilst keeping the integrity of their history very much intact. Period pieces are usually far better made than modern equivalents and research shows that antique furniture is sixteen times greener than modern furniture - upcycled furniture is the ultimate in eco-chic!

I hope you enjoy browsing and look forward to hearing from you.
