The best home buys are nearly always impulse purchases. Things that you buy because you think you’ll never see anything like it again.
Even better, it’s a little bit gratifying to inform guests that what they admire is ‘something you picked up in an antiques store/market on holiday/one-off fair’.
In the same category is the pop-up shop, an increasingly common treat for kitchen accessory junkies like myself.
The latest will be contemporary design store Hay, ‘popping up’ from 17th September on Monmouth Street, London, for four months. Not only is it perfectly timed for Christmas shopping, it’ll be stuffed with lots of new products from Icons of Denmark.
With Scandi-style living enjoying a resurgence, it’s also a great opportunity to pick yourself up an on-trend piece, such as these geometric tea towels.
