Last week I was in NY for a work trip and as soon as I got a few hours free on the weekend, I visited this amazing concept store in Soho.
While the entrance could be a bit intimidating (the lift from the road is a bit like: ‘Where the hell am I going?’), once you get at the 3rd floor you’re catapulted into the most beautiful light-filled open-air apartment in the heart of SoHo.
After being on holiday for a week, I’m back in a sunny London full of energy! Sometimes a little break is what you need!!!
And what’s better than discovering that there’s a new kid in town? Yes, because ARKET just opened a shop on Regent’s Street
The Scandinavian brand from the H&M group is a ‘modern day market that offers essential products for men, women children and the home. ARKET in Swedish means ‘sheet of paper’ and it alludes to concepts like Archive, Archetypes, Market. Sustainability is also one of the main values of the company, from the materials sources to the making process.
You probably know that I love discovering new independent furniture brand. This month I discovered Nutsandwoods, a new Berlin based furniture design studio that produces lovely pieces.
I’ve never been a fan of Valentine’s day: if you’re single it’s just a horrible day when the all world seems to remind you about it (I’ve been there so many times), but also as a couple I don’t think you need a special day to celebrate love….
That said, a part of me still loves and hopes to receive a little gift, something minimal that maybe makes you remember a special moment you spent together.
So here’s my minimal Valentine’s day Gift List:
I have to admit I am a last minute Xmas present kind of person, running around like crazy the last days to try and find something. So I’m happy to share with you some last minute GIFT IDEAS:
