Based in Bristol, Mon Pote is a home and lifestyle store full of gorgeous Scandinavian influenced and designed pieces. With well known brands like Bloomingville, HK Living and House Doctor you will be sure to find something you love.

home: nice price [ floor lamp ]
We spotted this very cool floor lamp at next.co.uk and what’s better is it’s a very reasonable price. Next may not always be the first choice of store to go too for modern homeware, but it has upped its game and there is loads to choose from.
This lamp is perfect for a living room as a reading light or just to give some ambience to a room. It comes in black or brass finish and what’s great for the price is the LED filament bulb is included.

home: trend [ maritime ]
The new ‘maritime’ trend has a far softer and subtle feel than nautical trends of the past.
Still with a feel of being in and around the sea coast but through textures, colours, patterns and imprints as opposed to more obvious use of rope, anchors and red, blue and white.
The colours are washed out blues, sandy beiges, dirty whites and with metallic hints to give an edge of boat engines, rusty hand rails and anchor chains and using natural weave in rugs, runners and chair seats; as a nod to sailors rope.
There’s much layering in textures and fabrics, with patterns of stripe, weave and linear illustration alike to shell patterns.
Add in collected nicknacks from travels, clusters of vases and stick to natural fabrics and surfaces – wood, wicker, bamboo, cotton, wool and silk.
