About Crackpots - The Story Behind The Crafts _ Crackpots-2.jpg

Update Unsightly Household Objects with Crackpots’ Chic Homewares this Season Luxury homeware brand, Crackpots has launched its stunning new collection of tissue box covers and waste paper bins for AW20. The collection comprises an array of chic designs in winter florals, abstract patterns and imitation stone styles which turn unsightly household objects into beautiful home accessories.

Each piece is hand made from responsibly-sourced, recycled wood and decorated using a specialist decoupage technique. The pieces are then accented with a luxurious gold paint before being coated with several layers of gloss lacquer to give it an immaculate finish.


We founded Crackpots in 2011 with a passion for interior design and an idea like no other. Our unique homewares are sold to over forty countries worldwide and our designs have been chosen by leading designers and luxury hotels, alongside many cosy homes across the globe.

Key styles for the season include the Gold & Silver Paint Splatter style which taps into the popular paint splatter interiors trend right now, while the Terrazzo and Marble styles (above) add an industrial chic vibe to any room. The new Ikat tissue box cover in ochre (below right) and the Moroccan Gold style (below centre) evoke an eastern feel to add a calm and warming feeling to your home.


Since the brand’s inception in 2011, Crackpots’ modern homewares have been designed and handcrafted by founders Gail and Alison at their countryside studio along the UK’s Lincolnshire coast - two women with a passion for home interiors and an idea like no other. Having gained a reputable and loyal customer base over the years, the brand’s following includes leading interior designers, international hotel chains and boutique B&Bs who turn to Crackpots for those little touches which make a house a home. With an extensive selection of styles available online, Crackpots’ offers something to suit every home interior.

We make our products by hand at our workshop on the Lincolnshire coast in England, on a made-to-order basis, to ensure our business is as sustainable as possible. Our unique decoupaged style is achieved by layering vibrant napkin designs onto recycled wooden shapes and boxes, which have been FSC certified ( Forest Stewardship Council ). It is then sealed with various coats of gloss varnish to ensure an immaculate finish with attention to detail.
