ONE, TWO, THREE… SHOP!
There’s never been a better time to be an interiors shopper, with brands expanding and cropping up in new locations. Here, we take a closer look at three you might not have heard of yet – but need to know!
Maisons du Monde This French design house, which operates out of its own château, has long been a go-to for European shoppers. And now it’s open to UK interiors fans. Its design team creates on-trend, affordable furniture, accessories and tableware in a vast array of styles (maisonsdumonde.com). Libra Founded in 1972, this British brand has flown under the radar for some time. Now, thankfully, its new ‘Libra Originals’ collection (above), sourced from antiques markets in Rajhastan, will be available in more independent retailers – search online for your nearest. You can also shop the range on its site (thelibracompany.co.uk). Barker and Stonehouse Readers in the north of England will already be very familiar with this family-run furniture store. But now it is finding a host of new fans in the south, with an impressive showroom in Battersea and another recently opened in Hove, near Brighton ( barkerandstonehouse.co.uk).
