Our Matchbox Holder in Burnt Orange Shagreen is the result of a collaboration with Cochine for their stylish aromatic candles. We adore it as a stylish solution for disguising unsightly matchboxes. Made with Henry Forwood’s designer faux shagreen and stainless steel, it will add a touch of elegance to any coffee table or mantelpiece. The matchbox holder fits standard UK large matchboxes. Our Matchbox Holder in Burnt Orange moreover make perfect gifts for birthdays, Christmas, weddings or a present for a dinner. We like to use it with our Seed Tealight holders.
Henry Forwood says:
I’ve known and worked with Kate (Founder of Cochine) for many years. She has always selected Forwood Design products in her chosen shade to style with her luxury Cochine range – a pairing that beautifully accentuates both of our designs. So, when the opportunity came for a co-branded collaboration, it was an easy yes! Kate first approached me with the idea to pair a bespoke matchbox holder with her exclusive Christmas candle. I enjoyed twisting my original Forwood Design bold orange hue which involved sanding the faux shagreen skin down. This created a timeless burnt orange colour blend that perfectly matched Kate’s Orange Amere and Star Anise scent. I also thoroughly enjoyed this collaboration, and ultimately, I believe the marriage of Kate’s creative concepts and my alchemy has born an elegant must-have match that harmonises and echoes both of our styles!
