This week I have discovered three new stores that I am in love with! I just had to share them with you.
One part of my job that I really enjoy is discovering new shops and new designers and uncovering new trends in the interiors industry. It keeps me on my toes.
The first one, that has just launched is the amazing WallpaperSTORE*. If you love the magazine (Wallpaper* is the hugely influential design and style magazine) then you’ll love their new online store that opened a few weeks ago. It’s a round up of their favourite pieces that have been featured in the magazine.
They are also selling Handmade products that were on show at the Salone del Mobile in Milan earlier this year including works from designers Lex Pott for Nomess Copenhagen, Bethan Gray and Vanessa Mitrani.
1. Mirror polished stainless steel pitcher, Georg Jensen | 2. Candleholders in solid brass by Carl Aubock | 3. Orquestra charger plate, Vista Alegre | 4. Bluetooth speakers (come with leather pouch). II+ | 5. Anxos Aquarelado porcelain coffee set, Sargadelos | 6. Large Spring scissors in steel by Nomess.
The second shop that I’m introducing you to has been going since 2013 but it’s new to me. The store is called Home Address and has the most beautiful edit of accessories on their e-site! Soft colours, gold detail, rustic pieces and all-round good design. I just love that gold clock!
The third store is Royal Selangor. This long standing company has been around in Malaysia since 1885. Royal Selangor has grown from a small family-run business to one of the best known pewter brands in the world.
I was lucky enough to go and visit the head office and factory when I was in Malaysia a couple of years ago. They have trained craftsmen who sit at their work station and hand hammer EVERY tiny little detail you can see in EVERY piece. It is mind blowing. Their offering is high end – the kind of gifts that you would give on ‘special occasions’. They have started selling some more contemporary pieces that you can see above and they now have a store on the Kings Road in Chelsea!
1. Surya Tray Blush Pink | 2. Gold Fish and Peony plaque | 3. Free Your Mind Pill Box | 4. Vinifera champagne flute and wine goblet | 5. Samarra Paper Clip Tray | 6. New London store at 261 Kings Road, Chelsea. All product available online at Royal Selangor.
