Our brand name is made up of two nonsensical, literary words coined by the author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, better known as Lewis Carroll. The words first appear in the poem: The Jabberwocky from the novel "Through The Looking Glass" by Carroll.
Brillig has its root in the verb "bryl" or "broil", referring to perhaps, for a great many people the best part of the day, the part they most look forward to: the evening, when one begins "broiling" things for supper.
Borogoves are fictitious creatures. A whimsical, eccentric, shabby looking bird which can be best described as a crossbreed between a dodo, a flamingo and a parrot, much like our brand's founder and creative director.
What We Do
We specialise and trade in decorative works of art, furniture and antiques. Just like our name, our items too are a curious mix of unique and one-off pieces. We are defined by our hybrid collections comprised of items that have been lovingly sourced. Each piece has been selected for its inherent charm, character and constitution.
We also offer for sale, a range of splendid wallcoverings, murals and home textiles featuring illustrations, motifs and patterns that are largely inspired by our collection of decorative art and objects.
Our full range of items and products can be viewed in person at our Chelsea Showroom (by appointment only) located in South-West London.
