My favourite interior retailers – Part 2 {Is it pay day yet?}

So here it is! Part two is packed full of more of my favourite interior companies. I’ve had to show so much restraint as I compiled these posts, the urge to click ‘add to basket’ has been strong, so strong! If you missed Part one, catch up >here< and I hope you enjoy discovering some fantastic new homewares!

Graham and Green {Particularly great for sofas and armchairs} 

Graham and Green offer a stunning array of home accessories, lighting and furniture which aim to inspire and delight. Their range of feather light pendants are a triumph in creative design;  so unusual, tactile and just beautiful!

 No corners have been cut with Graham and Green’s Valentin armchair as it combines three of my favourite materials; linen, velvet and mango wood. Just look at that brass stud detailing too!

I mean it’s not cheap at £695 but mixing statement, investment pieces in amongst budget buys can really lift the other pieces in a room and still give an overall, high-end look. If you have got your eye on an out-of-budget piece, sign up to the company’s mailing list to get a heads-up on any end of season sales. You never know, you might be able to snap up your dream piece at a bargain price!

I’m also quite a lot in love with these brass chairs…

Issac Iron Armchair in Brass – Graham and Green

I love their industrial yet glamorous feel and I love brass! I think it’s my favourite metal and I have lots of brass accents in the living room including the ceiling light fittings and curtain poles so these chairs would feel right at home tucked under my dining table. I’ve only just finished upcycling my Ikea chairs though, which I’m trying to convince myself I love just as much!

H & M Home {Particularly great for finishing bits and pieces} 

H & M have an extensive collection of interior loveliness but it’s one that can be easily forgotten about as their homeware ranges are only slowly creeping into our high street stores. Online though is a treasure trove of affordable ‘bits and pieces.’ H & M Home is a great place to pick up candles, trays, bedding, towels and anything else really! The styling and photography of their products is always gorgeous too. How stylish is this soap dispenser?

and take a look at this lovely bedding! Again credit to the photographer and styling team, I mean WOW, that green velvet headboard is amazing!

Made {Particularly great for statement lighting}

I love this company. Their products are high on style yet reasonably priced. I particularly like the way Made include pictures of their products in customer’s homes. Take the Alfred Tripod Floor Lamp for example (a particular favourite of mine!) as well as the usual product pictures, there’s an additional 28 photos of the lamp in customers homes, and doesn’t it look stunning? It’s a great way to get a true sense of a piece’s size, scale and colour in a variety of different spaces.

Homesense {Particularly great for one-off pieces}

If there’s one thing I’ve learnt about shopping in Homesense, it’s ‘If you like it, buy it.’  New deliveries arrive from all over the globe, all of the time, so it’s a great way to tap into European and American interior trends.  You never know what you might find so it’s quite an exciting shopping experience but it can also be a frustrating one if you’re looking for something specific! I’ve always found the staff so friendly and helpful and I really like the green aprons they wear! (A strange observation I know) There’s always a wide range of styles and an abundance of stock but it really is a ‘pot luck’ kinda place. Some of my most favourite pieces in my home are from Homesense and coupled with weeks of browsing and leaving empty handed, I feel like I’ve earned them!

Etsy {Particularly great for vintage and hand-made finds}

If you’re unfamiliar with Etsy, it’s an online marketplace for small businesses from all over the world. Everything is made and sourced with love and comes from talented, passionate designers. It’s a great way to discover unique goods and add a home-spun feel in your home. Communicating with the makers directly means there’s far more scope for personalising or customising goods before they’re made which makes for a really unique and authentic shopping experience. Take a look at the gorgeous work of talented crafter Jennifer from Felt and Mason. These stunning felt flower antlers are a beautiful mix of  wool felt, baltic birchwood, preserved wildflowers and leaves.

Or how about this pretty hand-printed linen bunting by Caroline Field at Betsy Badge. It’s an original take on the floral, triangular bunting you usually see.

And finally, have a look at this upcycled soap dispenser by The Fox and Alice. It’s perfect for gin lovers!

Be sure to follow these companies’ Instagram accounts for the latest interior trends and inspiration on how to style their products.
