One of our favourite times of year is London Design Week.
We get to spend a few days in the capital visiting the various
design shows and exposing ourselves to a diverse range of products
and ideas which never disappoint. This year we attended three shows
- '100% Design', 'TENT', and 'Decorex' so that we could visit a few
of our existing suppliers, perhaps find new ones and above all else
Renovation work on Bonsai's new bespoke showroom is well
underway and the end result is in sight. The team at Bonsai are all
hugely excited about this important evolution of the company and
the unique products and services it will bring to the Channel
Islands. Gallery magazine popped in to get a sneak preview of
what was to come.

It is not unusual for our Care service to receive a call from
someone with a floor, deck or piece of furniture asking for us to
repair, refurbish, preserve or find the best way to treat it.
It's what we do best after all and one could rightfully argue that

Having been open for nearly two years, Bonsai's new Elements
store has been a terrific success for the company. Not only has it
provided a much needed place for us to display a wider range of our
products but it also represents our first publicly visible shop
front premises too (our 'Bespoke' operation and warehouse storage
being tucked out of view!). An increase of over 30% in Bonsai's
exciting new clothing shop called 'Amelia's Wardrobe' opened
recently in Mill Street, St Peter Port. Having seen several of
Bonsai's Vintage furniture restorations, shop owner Phay McCombie

The team from Living Life visited the island's newest and most
exciting business - Bella Spa. The Spa represents the
newest addition to the island's foremost boutique hotel the Bella Luce.
As main contractors, suppliers and co-designers, this project

store and at exhibitions. From time to time we'd find ourselves too
short-staffed to cope with the volume of people coming into the

Having teamed up with the creative geniuses at The Potting Shed, we are
immensely proud to launch Bonsai's new branding. We gave TPS a
brief to design a brand which not only brought Bonsai firmly up to
date, but that communicated the journey of the company and clearly
defined the it's present structure.
Bonsai are best known as 'Bonsai Flooring' which harks back to
the company's humble beginning
