As the nights draw in, it is the ideal time to slow breath, slow time and find joy in our homes. What better way to seek out those cocooning moments than with friend of Wildsmith, exquisite designer, author and retailer:
Abigail Ahern is an independent luxury homeware brand led by one of the UK’s most exciting interior designers. Founded in 2002, AA celebrates the art of living and is committed to creating impeccable pieces that stand the test of time, transcending trends.
Like Wildsmith, Abigail believes in creating moments that restore and nourish the mind and body, reconnecting and recalibrating with the beauty around us. A shared love of botanicals; Abigail’s ‘faux botanicals’ are deeply inspired by the landscape and the arc of the seasons, just as our Wildsmith collection looks to the meadows, gardens and trees of the Heckfield estate.
Abigail’s collection of real, foraged and dried botanicals, including exquisite grasses, trailing branches and dried seed heads, take centre stage with their reel feel touch and hand-finished details.
Create uplifting centrepieces and cascading bouquets with Eucalyptus Russet amongst Senico Sunset and Juniper Branch and Hydrangea Blancs. Pair with Vitality Body Oil in the morning to energise and revitalise your sense with the exquisite scents of Black Pepper, Ginger Root Oil and Cedar Wood Oil.
As we look for moments of calm in the home, to soothe the mind, to cocoon and slow time, Abigail’s mastery of lighting - creating pockets of light throughout the home; diffusing and softening lighting for dramatic effect will take you one step nearer to blissful moments. The Harley LED Lamp - Ochre, is one such statement, a cordless lamp that emits a soft glow, it is ideally suited to any room in the house. Why not create a sanctuary in your bathroom, for an at home ritual with our Double Clay Refining Mask; a firming, warming, mineral-rich mask which we call our ‘facial in a jar’. And if you’ve just enough time for a deep cleanse too, we recommend our Spa in Jar - Nourishing Cleansing Balm - with soothing oils of Calendula, Rosehip and Meadow Foam Seed Oil.

Abigail’s home accessories, such as her iconic sculptures such as Vigan and Valencia, capture the bespoke qualities of hand crafted techniques. Imperfections are celebrated and each is truly unique, adding distinctive flair to table tops and bookshelves. As seen with our English Stoneware Collection, the artisan methods used to create these products are both the story and result of detail and time.
