                Foras @ 55 The Townhouse A hidden gem is waiting to be discovered at the rear of 55 The Townhouse, On The Green in Burnham Market. Established family business and Chelsea Flower Show gold medal winners Foras have transformed the space with their 2nd showroom; a natural stone and porcelain tile design studio with an array of exclusive home and garden accessories – vintage planters, gallery vases, sculptural bird houses and feeders – and inside dressed head to toe in inspirational home giftware. Here you can browse a stunning collection of stone, porcelain and ceramic tiles suitable for every type of property and be wowed by their inspirational mosaic room designed to unleash your imagination and creativity. Almost 50 different natural stones adorn the walls and are beautifully lit to show them off to perfection. Dramatic counter tops and stylish chairs create informal consultation areas while also cleverly concealing an array of porcelain tiles for use on walls and floors. Continue through into the mosaic room, complete with a bespoke mosaic mural feature wall, and a further 30 natural stones can be viewed in greater detail. Full bi-fold doors lead out to a breath-taking courtyard garden artistically designed to showcase a taster of all aspects of the Foras range including their award winning home and garden accessories collection. Peacefully flowing water features add a sense of calm and well-being as you sit and relax on one of their truly outstanding natural stone benches. Seasonal planting in natural slate and galvanised zinc pots and planters sit shoulder to shoulder with organic sculptural pieces and a variety of birdbaths and feeders that simply elevate this garden to another level.

While the new showroom is on a smaller scale it certainly doesn’t lack impact and really gives an insight into who Foras are, and their passion for design combined with their love of nature is evident everywhere you look. The secret to their success? An exquisite range of quality products for the home and garden and a commitment to their customers to offer the highest level of service possible. The ever growing Foras team are full of knowledge...
