RHS Chelsea Flower Show

The Brief

Following our Artisan Plankbridge shepherd’s hut garden that we created with designers Woolcott & Smith in 2012, we have been back each year with a tradestand. It is good to set our own brief to design and build a shepherd’s hut exhibit, which sometimes pushes the boundaries a little.

The Solution

Previous show huts include an outdoor kitchen shepherd’s hut, an extra bedroom and a simple exhibition space.


Perhaps the most pleasing year was 2016 when we pushed the colour choice a little, using more contemporary Farrow & Ball shades. The interior was Salon Drab, which may sound a bit dark, which it is, but the more atmospheric feel inside seemed to strike a chord with visitors.
