We are Kara Seddon and Mark Davison, based in Settle in the Yorkshire Dales and we produce design led homewares, accessories and cards which combine our love of wildlife and nature - with a distinctive contemporary edge. All of our designs are based on Mark’s own original photography.
Our inspiration to start the company
We wanted something that was a stylish take on the country home, and that appealed to both men and women with a love of the “outside” - whether that be farming, hiking, countryside sports or just because its reminds them of home.
We decided to take a leap of faith and set up Seddon and Davison - drawing on Mark’s artistic creativity and both of our business backgrounds. We also wanted the business to play its part in re-invigorating design and manufacturing skills in the UK; something we both feel strongly about and continue to support.
We take pride in what we produce - not prepared to compromise, and making sure we demonstrate our values and philosophies throughout (from the detail on a label, the materials we use, to the way we package our products).
Modern country living, with a twist - that brings a smile to your face too. As well as monochrome designs, we are also very keen on heritage inspired colours and how these work together. Indigo blues, dusky pinks, sage greys, mustards, clarets, teals, and charcoal greys.
