About Us


We’ve grown up! The Contemporary Home (TCH) was started 10 years ago as one-person band by dynamic Clare Satchwell in a boatyard at Hayling Island, off the Hampshire coast – she, the creator of the brussel sprout wreath! We quickly outgrew our shoreside home and stepped up to a converted barn on the island. And finally we moved up to London!
We’re still driven by Clare’s vision: to find original, pretty things for the home: things to bring, to give, things to inspire, things for a special occasion, things to bring a touch of extra charm to a home. And we’re never out of season: we have ideas for spring, summer, autumn, winter – and especially the Christmas season. And it’s always worth checking our website, as we’re always adding new, exciting and delightful things. And incidentally we’re quick and efficient too!
