About Thomas & Lucia

At Thomas and Lucia we provide an eclectic mix of contemporary English country and French style furniture, accessories and gifts plus fabrics and paint to complement the look. We have products for every room in the house, the conservatory and the garden. We are passionate about what we do and we aim to do it to the highest standard.

We are one of the biggest stockists of Chalk Paint™ in the UK and run our Annie Sloan & craft workshops up the road in a beautiful converted tithe barn.

Thomas and Lucia is named after co-owner Sue's great, great, great grandparents. Thomas was a miller in Shropshire Lucia, his wife, was named after her Italian grandmother.

We have searched extensively to bring you a mix of good quality, reasonably priced products from English and European companies.

Sue is a qualified garden designer and horticulturist. She has run a successful garden development and maintenance business to private homes in Dorset and Hampshire. Matthew was a self employed IT Consultant and provided services to both large and small companies. In 2007 they decided to make a significant change of direction and work together, pool their respective talents and open a high street shop in Christchurch Dorset. It is from there we run and supply our online shop.

We are very keen on the feel and atmosphere that can be created by combining furniture and accessories with plants and flowers. In our shop we are very conscious of colours, height and form and what can be produced to increase the drama by putting man made and natural products together in interesting ways. The opening of our shop in June 2008 produced a significant ripple in the area and we have had many lovely and positive comments from our customers since.
