Bert & May Spaces: A Property Company with a Twist


Renowned for their stylish reclaimed and contemporary tiles, Bert & May are embarking on an intriguing new venture, challenging the perception many of us hold of how a space can be enjoyed by delivering a truly innovative property solution. Launched this year, Bert & May Spaces is a property company with a definite twist, combining exquisite interior design with imaginative spacial surroundings in two distinctive project types – Bert’s Boxes and Bert’s Barges.

“We wanted to offer affordable, luxurious factory-made spaces to the wider market. By working with Lou Davies, architect to the Hollywood elite, my vision is becoming a reality”.

 – Lee Thornley, Director, Bert & May

With the stunning inaugural City Barge now moored outside Bert & May’s studio in the East End, the very first Bert’s Box is now in development, and we are excited to announce that we will be hosting the box outside the tent at Decorex 2015!

The Barges:

An exciting collaboration between Designer and Stylist Laura Fulmine, RaT Architecture and Bert & May Spaces, Space Number 1 boasts two distinct barges, the "Urban Pad" and the "Country Pad". Proving that barge living need not be a design compromise, each barge is made to order and features some of Bert & May's finest materials, making each barge perfectly designed to individual specifications.

The Boxes:

The aim of these delightfully characteristic spaces is to create simple, affordable and tactile lifestyle boxes for people who want beautiful spaces in which to live, work or play. By using Bert & May reclaimed materials, the project produces modular, design led spaces that are both truly unique and timeless. The boxes will be available in 3 varying sizes, From the Teeney travelling box, perfect for a home office, to the Big Box, which provides a fully functional 1 or 2 bedroom home.

“We are delighted to be showcasing one of our Boxes at Decorex International 2015. It will be surrounded by a beautiful garden and will be the platform to unveil the extent of our colour and pattern reach”.

In addition, Bert & May will also be launching their exciting new paint range at the show, which uses natural pigments in a unique lime wash, providing a complimentary colour collection. Add to this the launch of  Bert & May Kitchens, with the striking copper kitchen range situated in the Big Box at the show, and it’s safe to say that this much loved Decorex exhibitor are set to have a great year, and deservedly so!
