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.

Our staff are always on hand to offer tailored helpful advice, so that every customer leaves our store happy!‘
