We have joined the aristocracy!
OK, we haven't — after all, we believe great design should be accessible to everyone. But we are excited to announce that we have partnered with Chiddingstone Castle for NiMi at The Castle, a new space within the historical property's gift shop. It's like a pop-up, but better — we will be there a while!
Come see us at this second location, which features a selection of our contemporary Japanese designer homeware. We've picked pieces that complement country-manor style interiors with a touch of warm minimalism, plus there's a few little things for kids to enjoy on their day out.
Why Chiddingstone Castle? Aside from being a beautiful national heritage site with over 400 years of history, the castle has a unique connection with Japan. Its former owner Denys Bower, an art and antiques collector, was fascinated with Japanese arts and crafts. The castle's Japanese lacquerware collection is among the finest in Western Europe, while its Japanese sword and armour collection is equally impressive.
Also home to a locally renowned Japan Festival, offering events and activities spreading the wonders of Japanese culture, crafts and history, Chiddingstone Castle is close to our hearts.
Of course, we would love you to visit our original store in Sevenoaks, where we can tell you all about our full collection of interior goods. But if you happen to be in Chiddingstone Castle, why not drop by our pop-up as well!
