Another week another weekly round up!
1) French Loft, unlike Tat, is the place to go for furniture. It is filled to the brim with absolute delights in wooden form. One of my favourite forms is the 18th Century Georgian display cabinet/bookcase, £550. It breaks my heart that this won't be mine, but let it go to a happy home, French Loft.
3) Apologies, I feel like a real idiot - I am sure you have all heard an enormous amount about this brand - how could you not - Bourg-Joly Malicorne is terrific. Their tableware is tremendous, but this vase stole my heart, 194 euros. @bourg_joly_malicorne
4) House & Garden, boy what a dream, you might like me may have daydreamed about many a home within those pages. One in particular that I loved was Octavia Dickinson's South London Home. It was so lovely to see a London home manage to capture the charm of the country. The piece from her home that hooked my heart was these Bobbin Shelves by Alfred Newall from The London Workshop. I am not quite sure of the price, but I do know that they are superb. @alfrednewall
5) This is a bit of a two for one, Alfred Newall is married to the glorious Tess Newall - A terrifyingly talented pair. I met Tess in the Vogue House reception, where she was picking up a bedspread that she had kindly bought from Tat. She lit up the lobby with a marvellous smile; at this point, I didn't even know how talented she is. But after following her on Instagram I have come to know her breadth of talents, she has started making these handpainted lampshades, and they are tip-top, £65, from Papyra. @tessnewallstudio
6) If like me you are continually writing To-Do Lists, which go undone and pages get turned, you are probably getting through notebooks rather quickly. Why no indulge your lists with one of these snappy marbled notebooks, £9.50, from Re Found Objects. A perfect place to look out for Christmas Gifts. @refoundobjects
7) Next up a bit of lighting - Laverick & Son. Laverick & Son is a British Lighting brand founded in 2017 by Father and Son ceramic designer/makers Tony Laverick and Jack Laverick. They work in their studio just outside Stoke on Trent; each light is made by them. They have a terrific selection of lighting, but this swan-necked wall light is my favourite, Optic Wall Light, £128. @laverickandson
8) This week, I decided I had to get out and see some things, I started with the Pimlico Road, where I went into some of my favourites. One of them being Jamb. Their showroom is filled with extraordinary antiques, marvellous lighting and some of the finest fireplaces in the land. What I hadn't known was that they had produced The Pantry Collection, and with it the plate rack you see here. I am not sure of the price, but then that doesn't stop us admiring the excellent form. @jamb.
9) Cart House, they know it - everybody knows it, they are one of my all-time favourite places to shop for reasonably priced, unique items. I came to know them a year or two ago, and they have not stopped doing both of these things. This French Button Backed Chair, £320, from Cart House is an absolute winner. @cart_house
10) As we did last week, let's finish off with a couple of eBay finds...
One of which is this piece of madness, a jug which looks midway between a transformer and pile of oranges. Who doesn't love a bit of Majolica, even if it is a little looney? Large Majolica Jug, £70 from eBay.
Here we have a fantastico set of chairs, A collection of eight antique dining chairs in Arts and Crafts style at £25 each what's not to like. Set of 8 Dining Chairs, £160, from eBay.
