The traditional Deans shop blind is a staple product by Deans Blinds and has been our primary awning since John Dean himself installed the first one in 1894. The craftsmanship continues at Deans as evidence by this installation on Fulham road at the wonderful Orée bakery. Look closely at the awning and you will see how the traditional Deans shop blind fabric cover has been nailed in the old fashioned way, using galvanised nails. These nails have been driven into the awning tacker with an accuracy which can only be acquired through years of practice and the precision spacing and alignment achieved has been accomplished purely by eye.
The new artisan French boulangerie, Orée, has arrived on the Fulham Road recently serving up pastries so good it’s worth a detour to pick up your morning croissant. This French artisan patisserie and boulangerie is its first UK bakery café in London and the windows are brimming with fresh produce; all bread is freshly baked on site and there is a 38-cover seating area inside. Baking is at the heart of what Orée does best with an in-house open boulangerie kitchen, all of Orée’s breads are kneaded, and freshly baked, daily on site.
