A Gathering of Lampshades

While on holiday in New Zealand recently we visited Mac’s Brew Bar in Wellington. The bar and restaurant is imaginatively decorated and I just loved this collection of vintage and retro lampshades grouped together.

Hurricane Hat-Stand

I happened to be in Conran http://www.conranshop.co.uk yesterday and was charmed by this hanging rack laden with Hurricane Lamps. Look closely, they’ve filled them with plants, candles and trinkets. I’d add shells, pinecones and pebbles for an indoor nature corner.

Clapham Old Town goes retro


Dezanne, 31 The Pavement, Clapham Common, London SW4 0JE has a fine selection of collectibles from the 50’s to the 80’s and I couldn’t help but admire these wonderful scaffold board shelves. They create such an interesting feature wall and the perfect place to house your retro finds. Made by Woodworks 1066 http://www.woodworks1066.com/#!retail-shelving/zoom/c1jxp/image248, I love the honest utility of this style.
