Welcome to Smoke on the Water


From our shop in historic Sandwich we supply French-inspired, hand-painted vintage furniture plus a unique range of decorative items, household accessories, soft furnishings, gifts and greeting cards.


We also offer the acclaimed range of Pintades, a collection of hand-crafted ceramic guinea fowl by Heidi Caillard.


Smoke on the Water is an approved stockist of Chalk Paint™  decorative paint by Annie Sloan. We have the full range of over 30 historical colours as well as waxes, brushes and books. In addition to selling the paints we run highly successful paint workshops to equip you to produce your own furniture masterpieces. Please visit our Paint Workshops page for details and dates.


If you are looking to decorate your home we are official stockists for Little Greene Paint. In conjunction with English Heritage, Little Greene have developed a collection of period paint heritage colours and an exclusive design collection of wallpapers.


New: We now sell gift vouchers which can be redeemed against any goods in the shop or put towards our Annie Sloan paint workshops.


Our shop opening hours are 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday to Saturday.
