Rated by countless London interior designers and founded by Rohan Blacker (the brains behind sofa.com), Pooky know what they’re doing when it comes to adding flair to homes. Specialising in offbeat prints and design-led stands you can mix and match – we love their artichoke style – these are more than just practical pieces, they’re real conversation makers.
Who knew the fashion set could get so excited about lampshades? Everyone from Pandora Sykes to Laura Jackson (both known for their flair for fashion and interiors) have posted about the London-based designer. Her pieces are made by artisans from around the world and reference a whimsical, 70’s boho style. We love the scallop-edged raffia styles on a bedside table.
If colour is your thing, bookmark Fermoie. Founded by the British duo who once ran Farrow & Ball, there’s not much they don’t know about shade. They specialise in printed fabrics, covering everything from lampshades to cushions, making it easy to create a harmonious pairing of colour and print throughout the home.
Everything from OKA’s Indian-inspired prints to Ikat designs will add a touch of eclecticism to a room. Look to interior designers such as Salveson & Graham for inspiration on how an abundance of print, colour and texture can work in a room.
Pentreath And Hall
This London-based interiors boutique specialises in beautiful and unusual decorative things for the home and thankfully, a selection is available online too. These marble-effect shades come in a range of unexpected colour pops and look great on a hallway console or on a living room side table.
Rosi De Ruig
If you’re after something really unique look to designer Rosi de Ruig, who makes her pieces by hand in her West London studio. Favourites of ours include the Pleated Tamarind and zesty Jazz print, both of which have a wonderfully nostalgic, 60s-inspired shape to them.
