  • Sue Ryder Online Shop Spring Collection Photographic Shoot

    There’s nothing we enjoy more than taking some of our most vibrant and exciting products and creating fantastic new lifestyle imagery for the Sue Ryder Online shop. We regularly plan photographic shoots throughout the year, especially when we need to promote our exclusive furniture collections.

    Sue Ryder Occasional Chairs

     

    On 8th March 2017, the Online shop team, armed with various props, with cars stuffed full of chairs, tables and various other bits and pieces, including the odd drill to assemble our furniture, headed off to our location at Thorpe Hall, in Peterborough.

    Thorpe Hall Peterborough

     

    Thorpe Hall at Longthorpe in the city of Peterborough, is a beautiful Grade 1 listed building, built by Peter Mills between 1653 and 1656, for the Lord Chief Justice, Oliver St John. After a period as a hospital, the hall is currently used as a hospice for Sue Ryder.

    With its grand façade, lofty interior spaces complete with huge windows, high ceilings, and neutral backdrops, we decided that this was the perfect location for our latest photographic shoot.

    Decorative Lanterns

     

    Luckily the weather was on our side and apart from a few drops of rain, we managed to assemble the furniture using our trusty hand-held drills but also shoot most of our new garden furniture and statues outside in the impressive landscaped gardens.

    Brand new kids furniture

     

    The whole process is important to us – Planning – Shooting – Editing – all of these steps are essential when it comes to successful product photography.

    Garden Bistro Three Piece Bistro Set

     

    A great working relationship with a professional photographer is an absolute “must” especially if the objective is to achieve beautiful aspirational photographs. We were, therefore, incredibly lucky to have acquired the expertise of Northamptonshire Lifestyle and Wedding photographer Georgi Mabee who joined the team for the day. Her years of experience really helped us focus on what we wanted to achieve for every shot and because of this detailed planning, we managed to get through all seventy shots within the day.

    Pretty Wicker Storage Bench

     

    After several hours of unpacking boxes, shifting key pieces of furniture into the perfect position and then enhancing the shot with the right props we managed to complete the entire shoot by 4.00 pm!

    Take a look at our new lifestyle shots on the Sue Ryder Online Shop site.

  • Get the look - Scandi Style

    Scandinavian interior design combines simplicity, utility, and beauty with pared back style centered around warm functionality, clean lines, and effortless craftsmanship. The use of light is important within this genre as are muted tones,  natural materials, and minimal fuss.

    Scandi Style Interior Example of Scandi Style Interior

    Create a fresh, vibrant and contemporary feel in your home this Spring with our range of Scandi style furniture. The Stockholm furniture collection is designed for modern living, offering style and practicality with a sympathetic minimalistic approach.

    Scandi Round Tables Scandi Round Tables

    The inspiration for our Stockholm collection came from the current fascination with Scandi interiors. We wanted to create a co-ordinated furniture range that could easily translate into any interior space but also provides the eye with a point of interest.

    Sandi bedside tables Scandi bedside tables

    The trend for a bold geometric pattern is still strong within the home and with this in mind, we opted for a fresh and zesty bold geometric design on a sleek modern-shaped chair. If you want a room that looks like it's hopped off the page of a magazine then adding a pop of colour and bold pattern are absolutely key to nailing this look.

    Retro Scandi Chair Scandi Geometric Chair

    The use of natural wooden legs across all pieces within the range creates a consistent look and feel. You can soften up the look by introducing rugs, a great way to add an accent colour, perhaps taken from the chair, whilst adding a level coziness and comfort to your home.

    100% of the profits raised from the sale of these items will help our hospice and neurological care programme.

  • Deck Your Halls!

    Christmas can be an overwhelming and expensive time of year.  There are gifts to buy, presents to wrap, meals to plan, halls to deck and family to visit.  It can be a whirlwind of activity but happily at the Sue Ryder Online Shop, we can help relieve some of your festive woes with our range of great value hand-picked festive gifts and home decorations.

    Have a theme in mind

    One way to make the festive season go more smoothly is to have a theme in mind well before the big day. This year, instead of opting for the traditional Christmas colour palette of reds and greens, why not think about a more natural colour scheme. There seems to be a growing shift towards neutral décor so think about decorating your living room or hallway with natural materials.

    Large-white-wishing-tree

    To achieve that subtle festive Nordic look, adorn your living space with cinnamon sticks tied with string, dried fruit, willow branches and as a finishing touch why not place our gorgeous  hessian Santa sacks underneath your Christmas tree.

  • Sue Ryder Shop On Location!

    Nestled away in the heart of the Northamptonshire countryside, The Old Coach House is situated in the grounds of the historic Bragborough Hall and has been lovingly restored into a luxurious holiday let - the perfect location for our latest product photo shoot.

    The beautiful four bedroom Coach House features a sunny patio area with an eight seater table, perfect for families or a group of friends to enjoy a special break together.

    We contacted the owners to see if they could accommodate us and when we told them about our fantastic cause they were more than happy to help, allowing us to use the accommodation to provide the perfect backdrop for our home and furniture ranges - even supplying refreshments throughout the day!

    Amy Cooksey, E-commerce Manager at Sue Ryder says, "First impressions really count when selling online and ‘lifestyle’ images are an essential component when trying to stand out from the crowd and attract customers."

    ‘We have some fantastic country-style products and were looking for a character property to showcase them in. When we found The Old Coach House in Braunston, a stone’s throw from our online shop HQ, we couldn’t believe our luck! Having fantastic imagery makes it much easier for our customers to visualise our products in their own homes."

    For weeks prior to the shoot we’d been preparing, ensuring samples were here and planning the types of shots we wanted to get on the day.

    "There are many different content areas on the site that need updating on a regular basis and so we have to ensure we have multiple images in varying sizes and styles to ensure the site stays looking fresh and interesting."

    When the day of the shoot came around the weather was changeable to say the least.

    ‘We prioritised indoor shots first making use of the four double bedrooms and spacious living/dining areas. By the afternoon we took to the great outdoors and the pretty gravelled garden with its lush green planting.’

    All in all, once it was time to call it a wrap we’d all grown quite fond of our surroundings and wished we were staying for the week! We’re looking forward to heading back there soon to shoot our stunning Christmas ranges.

    All of the products you see here are available via the online shop (and some of our retail shops too) and you can book your stay at The Old Coach House online here.

  • The Sue Ryder Timeline

    You may or may not already know that all of the profits made from the sales of the products on this site go straight to Sue Ryder. The charity provides incredible care to people who have been given a life changing diagnosis. We’ve put together a brief timeline of our founder, Sue Ryder’s, early life to give you an insight into how the charity came about and what's done with the money raised.

    3 July 1924

    Sue Ryder was born during the summer of 1924 to parents Mabel and Charles. One of nine siblings, Sue grew up on her parents’ farm in Leeds, spending summers on their second farm in Suffolk. It was here she established her strong work ethic.

    1930

    At the age of six, Sue began to visit slums close to her home with her mother. Together they would help relieve the unpleasant living conditions there. Children who lived in the slums would come to play in the open spaces of the Ryder family’s farm and Sue would prepare food, bags of sweets and presents for their arrival.

    1939

    When the Second World War broke out, Sue felt she needed to do something to help but at 15 she was too young to volunteer herself. She began volunteering at a local hospital before joining the First Aid Nursing Yeomanry. Sue trained in the UK and was then sent abroad to Poland, the then Czech Republic and North Africa.

    1943

    Sue decided her vision was to “build a living memorial to the dead, and our work is a summons to seek out the reality of human suffering, and do something about” at just 19 years old.

    1950s

     During the 50s Sue made it her mission to provide support and care to the hundreds of people who had been imprisoned by the Allied forces. Despite being advised otherwise, Sue visited the prisoners alone, taking supplies along with her and forever fighting their cause to anyone who would listen.

    1952

    Sue Ryder’s first home, named St Christopher’s was established in Celle, close to Hanover. Here she cared for rehabilitated prisoners and anyone else who needed her care, including TB patients who had been stranded in camps. Many overseas homes followed, including one specifically for girls with rheumatoid arthritis and 22 for the elderly, survivors of concentration camps and people with an incurable disease or a neurological condition.

    1953

    Almost thirty years old, Sue created the Sue Ryder Foundation or simply Sue Ryder, as we know it today, and hospices were opened in the UK. Sue Ryder now provides incredible care for over 16,000 people per year in hospices, care centres and within communities.

  • Why We Love Children’s Furniture

    It’s always exciting for the team when we first see new product samples in the Sue Ryder New Goods office. But the samples that we love to see the most are the children’s furniture.

    Here are some of the top reasons why we love furniture for children:

    It’s Fun!

    We think one of the most exciting parts of being a parent is watching your child’s likes and tastes develop. Furniture with fun patterns and bright colours, (more often than not, far from what we’d choose for our ourselves) is a great way to help children put their own stamp on their playrooms or bedrooms.

    We Can Personalise It 

    Some our our children’s furniture, the Funky Monkey and Funky Fairy stools, for example, can be personalised with your child’s name. We think the personalised items make a great unique gift for a special occasion.

     You Can Let It Get Messy

    Little people make a big mess. So if you don’t fancy felt tip all over your sofa or PVA on the kitchen table, furniture for children might just be a good idea! Our children’s furniture is priced modestly with this in mind. Find our range here.
