Thank you!

Hi there,

We wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you to everyone who has supported us through our first year of trading. All our 43 shops in 8 different countries in 4 continents that are believing in our products. Without you - we would not be anywhere. A big thank you to our fantastic suppliers in Sweden and UK! A humble thank you to all fantastic design bloggers out there and all fantastic magazines! Thanks for writing about us! This is a note to all of you, a big thank you, a big Merry Christmas and a big fat Happy New Year!

Since the start of ISAK a year ago, we have met so very many nice people, made so many new friends - and for this we are truly grateful. We hope to see you all again soon, and continue to do business with you. ISAK will be launching a spring collection with more additions to the kitchen range and our first textile product at Top Drawer, Earls Court, London. January 13-15, stand J3 - we hope to see you there!

We hope that you have been happy with our products. If not, we would like to hear from you. We gladly accept any feedback - good or bad, anything that will help us improve our service and our brand.

Kind regards,
Nick & Sandra & The Isak Team

Blossom & Bill Special Edition

To celebrate the first year of ISAK and the upcoming Christmas celebrations we wanted to do something special.

Blossom & Bill; first Christmas

“Blossom was sitting at her desk reading. The light was dim but she didn’t mind. She noticed the note slip under her door and her feet tingled. Outside, Bill skipped down the steps retracing his own footprints in the snow feeling, vulnerable, exhilarated and full of hope. Blossom picked up the blank envelope and opened it. Inside was a library ticket. Blossom opened her door, saw the footsteps in the snow and felt their warmth as she followed them with her eyes. On the back of the ticket Bill had scribbled: Please celebrate Christmas with me. Blossom smiled.

She stirred the sauce and sugared the potatoes whilst Bill carved the roast elk. The candlelight flickered and outside the slowly falling crystals of snow fell. Bill opened the champagne and nothing unlit by the candlelight mattered.

She awoke the morning after to the smell of a cinnamon dashed coffee and a saffron flavoured bun sitting on a tray by the bed side table. There was a note from Bill: Had to dash! Will be back by noon to cook you lunch. Don’t move!"

There are only so many trays available - if you miss it, you’ll have to wait until next year! It’s a birch wood tray made from Scandinavian sustainable forests, covered with a transparent laminate coating for durability. Only available at www.isak.co.uk.


Finally the day is here where we start to work on the ISAK blog! Here you will find an eclectic mix of beautiful happy things - our own, and others. Thoughts on life, design, travel and culture. Please be patient, - there will be more!
