Anthropologie Love

I absolutely love Anthropologie  For those of you haven’t heard of it, they sell the most beautiful array of lifestyle and home accessories and furniture.  I challenge anyone to visit their shop and not fall in love with something.  I visited their shop in Miami last  year and when I returned to London was happy discover they had opened one on Regents Street.   There’s also one on Kings Rd and they currently have a pop up shop in Selfridges.

Anthropologie offers a one-of-a-kind and compelling shopping experience that makes women feel beautiful, hopeful and connected. We invite you into our world – whether it’s our store, website or catalogue – with the hope you take a deep breath and explore until your heart’s content

Here’s a tiny fraction of what I saw and loved…

I was drawn to the rabbit cushion, it looked familiar…and then I remembered.  I had enquired after them to stock in my own shop last year but never got round to making an order.  They’re made  by a company called Thornback and Peel and display their collection at the Cockpit Art studios.  You may have heard of it.  There’s one in Deptford and one in West Central London

Cockpit Arts has been supporting designer-makers for over 25 years. We are an award winning social enterprise and the UK’s only creative-business incubator for designer-makers

Check out their website for a chance to see other designers and makers.

Bye for now



Moomins and more…

During my on-going quest for new products to stock in the shop, I inevitibly come across some beautiful things.  Here are a few that I thought I’d share with you.

First up are the Moomins.  Have you heard of them? The Moomins are the central characters in a series of books and a comic strip by Swedish-Finn illustrator and writer, Tove Jansson. They turned 65 this year and were very much present at all the trade fairs.  I will stock them soon, but for now – just loving them!

These vibrant shades and chairs are perfect for adding colour to your home or child’s room.

I am slightly obsessed with Brio toys.  We have some in the shop already, but here are some favourites.

There’s also something of a craze going on at the moment for wall stickers.  They are a fantastic way to change the look  of the room and so easy to apply – what’s not to love.

Hope to see you soon
