Welcome to gravitas

Formally Longbarn & string

'Doing it with gravitas' for us means responsible retailing,

recycling with style, respecting the craftsmanship and quality of past manufacturing and artisan makers.

Highlighting great, functional design with versatile, useful pieces.

We choose natural materials. with a love of wood, old copper, stone, marble and ceramics, as well as textiles.

We are Gary & Jane Kendall

Our year is wrapped around our annual trip to France.

We stay in our adopted medieval town in the southwest, and from here we hunt and gather interesting pieces to ship back.
