home: found this [ NIKKEBY – IKEA ]
Ikea have just launched their new catalogue, which means one thing – lots if new products to get excited over!
We love this NIKKEBY range – a collection of 2 chest of drawers and a clothes rack. The industrial style makes for interesting pieces which are great for small spaces, especially the clothes rack.
As always with Ikea, the price is great too, starting from £45 for the clothes rack, £55 for the 2 drawer chest and £65 for the 4 drawer chest.

home: trend [ sculptured form ]
As we head into Autumn new trends are alway appearing, including today’s pick – sculptured form.
Taking inspiration from sculpture and art, furniture & lighting are taking on forms that give them the appearance of something more than just a functional object. Sofas and chairs are given soft curved lines with lighting being something not out if place on a gallery plinth.
We have always bought furniture for not just it’s use, but also it’s form and now it seems brands are going that bit further to offer us something even more interesting and eye catching.
Clockwise from top left.

Interiors and homeware lovers that make the trip to Paris, France, definitely need Merci on their radar.
This beautiful Parisian store, does offer an online shopping service, but to see the store in person, see the how the curated range can be styled and enjoy the entire retail experience is an extra layer of pleasure to shopping with this wonderful brand.
The brand also offers fashion and the store is an all round design and lifestyle experience.
111 Boulevard Beaumarchais
Merci is a place created in March 2009 in the heart of the historic district of Haut-Marais. Bernard and Marie-France Cohen, founders of BONPOINT the children’s fashion label, realized that Paris lacked a place which would bring together the best of the world of fashion, of design, of household goods with welcome refreshment areas.
A business established in the heart of its region and of its country, Merci has already created more than 70 permanent jobs. Merci is, moreover, very pleased to act as a developer or launch-pad to the young designers who, thanks to this sounding-board, can make themselves known to the many customers and international personalities who visit Merci.
Merci is a commercial enterprise “like any other company” founded by shareholders “unlike any other shareholders”. The founders decided that the proceeds of this investment would serve to fund an endowment paying for educational projects and development in south-west Madagascar.
Bernard and Marie France Cohen wanted to say MERCI to life, MERCI to the talents and to the designers who made this success possible. It is this success which makes their generosity possible.
In 2013, Marie-France Cohen passed on the torch
The current Merci team has kept up the commitment and the founders’ original dream by contributing year on year to the foundation.
