Rosara in India

Thursday, 23 November 2017 08:59:14 Europe/London


Rosara in India

 WorkshopIn October Rosara headed to India. Our aim? To find exciting new products, meet suppliers, and check out potential new ones. 

We scoured Delhi’s old bazaars and hidden treasures – some local knowledge took us a long way – finding everything from heritage pieces to some of the most gorgeous boutiques we’ve had the pleasure to visit, anywhere.  We were totally inspired!

We fell in love with urlis, trunks, cupboards and tables. We met craftsmen who painstakingly restore beautiful items. We talked to artisans and manufacturers. And we shopped. So keep a lookout when visiting Rosara HQ in the next few months for some of the gorgeous things we found! 

At Rosara we love to mix British, bespoke, handmade furniture and crafts with fine textiles and artefacts sourced more widely. This trip was to help us develop that mix and keep our styling fresh and exciting! 

Taj Mahal

Everywhere we went, we saw innovation and creativity in displays, incredible attention to detail and colour and thoroughly enjoyed wonderful customer service.

We had good reviews with our existing suppliers, who make our textile products and lights. We were also pleased to find new suppliers, who we want to work with so we can expand our range, after listening to what our customers like most about us.

We think our main learning from the trip has been how to use colour subtly, whilst enough to give the ‘wow factor’. India is the land of colour, after all!

(And of course, you cannot go to India without seeing the Taj Mahal: every bit as magical as we’d hoped!)

Rosara wins 5 stars at RHS Chatsworth

Tuesday, 27 June 2017 16:17:00 Europe/London

Rosara was delighted to be awarded a 5 star trade stand award at the very first RHS Chatsworth show last week.  A lot of hard work was put in by our Landscapes team, creating a beautiful area to display Rosara’s range of hand built garden furniture.

The Chatsworth weather even brought out the best of the outdoor furniture – visitors could be heard delighting in how much the rain showed off the colours in the oak tables and the teak benches. Others were heard simply saying there’s no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing.  Not quite the blitz spirit, but certainly thousands of people intent of having a good time.

Rosara stand

Chatsworth was, for Rosara, filled with laughter, happiness and a touch of pride at the 5 stars!  Friends were made, ducks swam, stories shared, values reinforced: “exactly what we set out to do when we launched, and a perfect location in which to share it all”.

5 Star award

Visit Rosara next at Countryfile Live, where they show 3-6 August 2017.  Hopefully you won’t need your wellies!

After a little planning and preparation, we are pleased to welcome The Oxford Christmas Company, who have taken up temporary residence at our ROSARA showroom. It's lovely to see the festive baubles and tree decorations here, and as we knew they would, our candlelight products look really lovely with a festive spin.

For those of you relatively local to us, our products will be making a guest appearance in various locations throughout the festive season, and we would love to see you if you're around.

Our first stop is at North Parade Market in Summertown.

It'll be our first time there and we are loking forward to getting to know both the stall holders and visitors to the market.

We will then be at The Advent Fair at Winchester House School in Brackley on Saturday December 3rd from 10am until 1pm. And finally following a successful stint at the Cheltenham Market pop up shop in Bath Road we were asked to go back just before Christmas. So, we shall be packing our bags and heading down there for Monday 17th December until Friday 23rd December.

More details to follow shortly.

ROSARA at Nicholsons

Monday, 24 October 2016 19:57:51 Europe/London

It became very clear to us early on, that whilst people were getting to hear about us, many wanted to get a feel for our ROSARA products in a physical setting. And so we began to take over the small tree and hedging nursery shop that comprises the retail wing of Nicholsons in North Aston so giving us the physical presence we needed. The results over the Summer spoke for themselves, people came in, loved and bought our products but we soon found that the space wasn't quite big enough to showcase our special range. 

With the development of the Nicholsons site now underway to include an atrium area, covered walkway and yurt café, we will now have the much needed breathing space we need and plans are now to use this extended space from this week. We will start adding photographs below to give you a flavour of our new extended space, but if you are in the North Oxfordshire vicinity, do pop in and see us the ROSARA team would love to meet you!

So here's before ...

Au Revoir Cheltenham

Thursday, 18 August 2016 17:03:01 Europe/London

A little piece of calm has descended on Rosara HQ following our trip to Cheltenham so we took the time to post some of our favourite photos below.  All in all, the team had a wonderful time, met some lovely people and received some really positive feedback. Memorable moments included meeting the customer who was building their own sofa from breeze blocks and planks and was looking for the perfect cushions, and a lady who sent pictures with her phone to her daughter in Cyprus to approve some purchases for her first flat !

Whilst we would have liked to stay longer there are plans afoot to return with the space booked for next Easter !
