Take a tumble down the rabbit hole …
It has been 150 years since Cheshire cats, jam tarts and other curious and curiouser things entered our consciousness. Now, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is on trend.
To celebrate the anniversary of Lewis Carroll’s much-loved children’s book, it’s time to enter the fantasy world of Alice and take a tumble down the rabbit hole.
It’s all white
Loomah are relaunching their Wonderlands Collection to celebrate the anniversary of this enchanting novel. First shown at Decorex in 2010, lay the White Rabbit down to create a cosy reading spot or hang on the wall for a topsy-turvy talking point.
