SEED is on the move!

Nearly 6 years ago Sinead was invited to renew the shop at Black Swan Arts – a place she regarded as one of the most respected galleries in the South of England. Today, Seed at Black Swan Arts has evolved into a successful shop selling stunning craft from the British Isles, coupled with beautiful work by very talented local artists. In February 2018, Seed are expanding, moving to a shop twice the size (at the foot of Catherine Hill and the top of Stoney Street in Frome). A new chapter emerges in both the life of Seed and simultaneously, of Black Swan Arts. A chapter where we both seek new adventures independently and also the opportunity for us to collaborate again in the future.

We wish SEED wonderful success in their bigger, beautiful new home.

Watch this space for exciting opportunities for the shop at Black Swan Arts…

More about SEED

Representing a careful edit of the hottest new designs coming to market, Seed is a showcase of the best of British; all that is cool, creative, individual and inspired in homegrown design talent today.

SEED was established in 2009 by former stylist Sinead Foley with the aim of nurturing original design and making it available to all.  SEED has become a destination for its eclectic mix of products, the walls are lined with original art, cabinets laden with handmade jewellery from rising stars; ceramics, sculpture and glassware leave vintage workbenches and sideboards (also for sale) groaning whilst luxurious textiles and homewares jostle for space alongside coveted objet trouvé personally sourced by Sinead.

Some of the pieces are totally unique and the majority in limited supply, ensuring a unique purchase every time.  Commissions are also happily accepted and vintage furniture can be sourced to order.
