A little bit about us...
I'm Tanya, owner and designer at Woof & Wilson (formerly The CosyCorner House), a small online homeware and lifestyle store with a modern country style.
I actually began my working life in childcare many years ago, but just over a decade later I had to make the tough decision to leave that behind for health reasons. I was born with a complex congenital heart defect and the increased symptoms, physical limitations and need for lots of medical treatment meant that I needed to rethink my career path. I decided that working for myself from home would give me the flexibility to work around my health needs, and having always been creative I wanted to be able to explore my talents further. I worked briefly with a good friend of mine making handmade invitations, cards and party bags. I loved designing our products, so when we parted company as a work partnership (we are still great friends) I knew I was ready to take those creative ideas in a different direction.
With my love of cosy country interiors, nature and my slight addiction to tea I set up business The Lilac Teacup in 2011 handmaking personalised canvas pictures. This transformed in to The Cosy Corner House when I began sourcing beautiful homeware to add to the business. After naming my own desing collection Woof & Wilson Designs in 2017 I decided very recently in 2018 to rename and re-brand my business, becoming Woof & Wilson, a far more personal business name, and one that I adore!
Our Labrador Hooper is of course the 'Woof' in Woof & Wilson, a constant source of amusement (and trouble) and warm furry cuddles, my wonderful boy. 'Wilson' comes from my other half's surname (now my fiancé!). He's not only my soulmate and best friend (along with Hooper) but he also recues me from IT disasters and my fear of spreadsheets....and spiders! They are most definately both part of my little business and I couldn't do this without them.
At Woof & Wilson we sell a beautiful selection of homeware and accessories for your cosy home. I take great care in sourcing quality products which fit in with a modern English country style. Alongside these products I design my own range which is also available on our website.
Our Woof & Wilson Designs collection is inspired by my love of nature, the countryside, tea, cake, and my Labrador! My handmade products are designed and created in my studio in England.
As a small business I very much believe in providing a friendly and helpful service, I'm always happy to help customers with any questions or requests if possible. I can be contacted via the contact page here.
Many thanks for visiting!
