It’s hard to put into words how the essence of what makes up ‘Pomponette’ all came together. As all good things should, it evolved from what we are passionate about.
I ts style is part of our lives; the influences that have accumulated from what we have studied, what we take interest in & what or who has inspired us along the journey of life.
Founded in 2009, Pomponette moved into our current Grade II Listed premises situated in The Lanes, (Leicester’s quirky, independent shopping area), in 2011. We are situated in one of the oldest brick buildings in the city in the heart of the historical quarter. Our small, albeit neatly proportioned external frontage disguises the large, spacious interior & is conveniently situated between two popular Leicester cafes providing al fresco dining.
We have our own collection of unique & hand crafted furniture that is made in our workshops. All of our bespoke items are made to order and individually crafted from pine or from reclaimed timber. All of these items can be made in any size, have various options available and are finished with the Farrow & Ball colour of your choice.
We are official stockists and trainers of the fabulous Chalk Paint™ decorative paint by Annie Sloan and as such we specialise in transforming & hand-painting our own vintage, pre-loved furniture that we sell at Pomponette. We also deal in antique Continental pine furniture which we provide either stripped or in its original paint finish. On these pieces we offer a bespoke paint service where you can choose if you want us to wax the piece or to paint it in the Annie Sloan colour of your choice. An abundance of these unique, individual pieces are always in the shop for you to view before you buy and no two items are ever the same and cannot be purchased anywhere else.
