2020 certainly felt like the year that turned everything on its head. For us, as a business, it presented huge challenges, but with them came opportunities, and as a small company, we were in the fortunate position to be able to adapt quickly for which we are very grateful.
Personally, my life changed significantly in 2020. I went into the year living in Asia where I had been for 10 years running Cochine daily from our office to relocating to England, working from home and juggling work with unpacking, home schooling and everything else the day brings! Today we run Cochine remotely across continents and time zones and with a renewed flexibility and truly global focus.
Change, I know, is something I share with many of you. 2020 was the year when, for many of us, our homes became both our office and our haven. Being part of your home and also part of the time carved out for yourself, lifting the experience of another evening in with a little touch of luxury has been a true privilege.
We are hopeful that brighter times are on the horizon and, with this, are excited to be bringing you some brand new products soon - and a whole new collection that you have been asking us for. In the meantime, thank you so much for welcoming us into your homes and we look forward to helping you make them feel like the special sanctuaries you need them to be.
3 Things that have kept me sane…
1. The Midult Podcast - Listening to these ladies when it all seemed a bit much never failed to lift the spirits.
2. More than a Woman by Caitlin Moran - This book made me feel seen, heard and SO well understood.
3. Baths - Honestly, the best part of every day!
