The company called Avoda Stein offers an eclectic range of lighting, tiles, wallpaper, furniture and fabrics.

Managing director Ryan Paine has 15 years experience working in interior design and has been involved in projects for the Salthouse Hotel on Ipswich Waterfront and Retreat East near Coddenham.

He said his approach is to hand pick each item for its “individuality, style and high quality finish”. Brands the store stocks include local artist Lucy Tiffney’s wall coverings and soft furnishings and Watt & Veke lighting.

Mr Payne added: “We value our clients and understand how important it is to look at different colours and options when planning a project, whether it’s a small room refresh or a complete refurbishment, and everything in between”.

Sales and marketing manager at the Suffolk Food Hall, Russ Haddow, welcomed the concession.

He said: “We are sure Avoda Stein will be a valuable asset to Suffolk Food Hall, their reputation for superior quality products and fantastic customer service match our vision and will surely complement our already successful home and garden department.”

With various names having been ascribed to the gales that plagued Suffolk yesterday morning, there was some confusion as to what the storm was actually called.

Shane and Zoe Coldron were Chantry School childhood sweethearts. But unexpectedly Zoe, 44, collapsed and died last week. Her husband Shane has spoken about how the family is coping, plus the overwhelming support he has received.

The idea was simple: if every woman who had ever been sexually assaulted or harassed posted ‘me too’ online, we might get a sense of the true scale of the problem.
