Walker Logistics has been appointed by Avenida Home, an independently owned company that produces a collection of handmade placemats, drinks coasters, table mats and other homeware items, as the manager of its UK supply chain. Walker will store some 400 SKUs within a consolidated area and pick, pack and dispatch replenishment stock to Avenida’s growing list of retail stockists, which includes Liberty of London, across the UK and to parts of Europe.
“Avenida’s owners sought a logistics services partner with the infrastructure and day to day capability that their expanding brand demands and we are delighted to be working with them,” said William Walker, sales director of Walker Logistics Ltd.
Avenida Home was founded in 2010 by Isabel Saiz, who had a dream to bring “new and unexpected designs, beauty and quality to home accessories”. Previously Head of Marketing at Farrow & Ball, Isabel has been in charge of the National Trust Home Collection, and Delicious Art at the National Gallery, London. She is also a proud winner of the International Design Effectiveness Awards.
All Avenida Home accessories are created in the studio in Bath and are made by skilled local people and artisans in small family-owned factories in the UK and Europe. Isabel also works with exceptional artists and designers to create Avenida’s exclusive pieces. This means a design might start out as a painting or as an illustration, before adorning a unique piece of homeware.
