Out searching for props today for some upcoming photoshoots of recent projects.
The Packhouse is a 400-year-old building near Farnham, Surrey, not far from our showroom. It is a treasure trove of beautiful and unusual things, old and new, and bustling with people on a lovely spring day.
With the name Cafe Fig, we at Figura could hardly pass up the opportunity to taste one of their delicious sandwiches. This amazing fig tree which starts growing indoors and then winds it's way through the open roof, provided some much needed shade today. A real treat for us usually office based workers!
With three floors, more nooks and crannies than your average castle and some 70 traders selling vintage, upcycled, new & antique finds, browsing at the Packhouse is so much more fun than walking into a department store.
"ECCENTRIC IN A QUAINT, ENGLISH WAY"
There is lots going on at the Packhouse. Craft workshops, late night shopping events, new trader launches and more.
