    Bloomingville, Danish design, Debenhams, home shopping spy, ideal home, housetohomeDanish homeware brand, Bloomingville, opened it’s first UK concession this week in Debenhams. I’ve been a fan of their product for years so am most pleased. You’ll find cushions, tableware, chunky wood furniture, trays and storage boxes. Everything in the range feels really cohesive in tasteful, muted tones and I love their mix of materials, including copper, zinc, wicker and wood. Here are a few of my favourite things…

    A rather nice combo

    You may remember I blogged about Winter’s Moon last year. Best known for their super selection of vintage and recycled homeware, they have teamed up with another favourite of mine, Thornback and Peel as part of London Design Week. It’s a very happy duo…

    For the duration of the design festival (Sept 14th – 22nd), Thornback and Peel have invited Winter’s Moon to showcase some of the pieces in their Rugby Street showroom. They also have a couple of their Formica tables on show, which I’ve had my eye on for a while…

    Choose from an Ercol day bed upholstered in their Pear Print, a grey bell-bottom ceramic lamp with a hand printed drum shade or a vintage Parker Knoll chair upholstered in their jolly Rabbit and Cabbage design…
