Birdie Fortescue's eponymous interiors haven is the result of a journey that started in London in the late 1980s. Having worked through the UK and USA for Colefax & Fowler during her 20's, Birdie went on to gain a reputation as an antiques dealer specialising in continental furniture. In 2014 Birdie took on a Victorian warehouse in Burnham Market as a Norfolk base for her burgeoning antiques business. As the building was so large Birdie decided to transform the space into an interiors destination where antique furniture could sit alongside homeware and art. Birdie designed her first collection of block printed soft furnishings for Spring/Summer 2016. The success of this range prompted subsequent collections launched on a twice yearly basis. Birdie’s first ranges comprised block printed table linens, cushions and rugs and gradually developed to include lighting, decorative accessories and furniture.
