Did you know?

We always like discovering rare facts about our much-loved children’s author. Did you know that animals and nature were not the only fascinations that Beatrix Potter had? Beatrix Potter had an immense passion for furniture!

The beloved children’s author and illustrator was enchanted by historic furniture from a young age, and took immense pleasure in sketching particular pieces.

You can discover all about her hidden obsession in the latest V&A London museum display here: https://www.vam.ac.uk/event/lDGlNMJ2/chippendale-in-the-drawing-room-beatrix-potter-s-fascination-with-furniture.

We think it looks very interesting.
