Home from home

Cath Kidston Ltd was founded in 1993 when designer Cath Kidston opened a tiny shop in London's Holland Park. She began by selling the vintage fabrics, wallpapers and brightly painted junk furniture she remembered fondly from her childhood. Her clever, witty reworking of traditional English country house stele meant that her shop soon became a cult success. Gradually Cath began to design her own prints and products. One of the first was a printed ironing board cover- practical, quirky, with a distinctive floral print, it has come to epitomise the Cath Kidson look.

a new line full of them is even better’


Cath Kidston Ltd is one of the most influential and original design companies to emerge from the UK in recent years and has expanded steadily to become the international lifestyle brand it is today.
