Pip Rau made Central Asia her ‘stomping ground’ when she began tracking down rugs, furniture and crafts. A reflection of her tireless spirit, the Victorian terrace where she now bases her business incapsulates a life filled with adventures. Here, a Mahali O’Hare painting hangs above the Gothic fireplace, which Pip found in Bristol. The spiral staircase leads to the first-floor sitting room, and behind it hangs a collection of wood shrines from Karnataka and Russian mirror frames. Photography: Antony Crolla.
