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.
I recently discovered the dutch brand Hema in one of London airport departure shop:
- Candleholder / 2.Storage Boxes / 3. Metal Basket / 4. Storage Felt Box / 5. Cappuccino Mug / 6. Paper Clips 7. Fleece Throw 8. A5 Notebook
Apparently founded in 1926 as a department store for “ordinary” people, I’m surprised that I never heard about it but I’ve been attracted by the variety of things, the lovely color palette of the shop and the really convenient prices…
The above is my wishlist! As autumn is here I’m in love with the grey&yellow combination.
Have a look on their website for the full catalog (it changes really quickly, so keep an eye on it) …the stationary section is my favorite 🙂
Have you ever heard of this brand before?
p.s. All comments are mine, I am not affiliated with the brand in any way…
I promise you this is the last post about my recent trip to Sweden, but I can’t resist sharing few pics I took of the Airbnb we were staying in.
Hello, here’s the second part of my Design Guide of Gothenburg. I shot so many photos that it took me a while to organise and edit all of them. (p.s. Have a look at my Flickr Album for more city and architectural photos …)
I really love when I go to a new city and find some time to browse Design Shops. I had a very nice trip to Gothenburg the last week, the weather was surprisingly very hot too!!
Here’s a little Shopping Design Guide of the city:
