Arch 389 is a new vintage furniture shop next to the London Fields train station.  They’ve got a great mix of inventory (mid-century furniture, industrial lighting, antique fireplaces) as well as surprising random items like the horsehoe board below.

Fall Picks, 2009


With the cold air descending, I thought I’d share some of my picks to get us all settled in for the fall.  A thick scarf, woollen socks, a wall clock (clocks go back in a few weeks!), a tea cosy, and even a chair (get back to work, summer’s over!) – it’s all here.  I’ve come across quite a few lovely blankets – so watch this space for a ‘blanket round-up’ in the coming weeks!

From top left: Zeppelin print from Valero Doval, Pocket Shirt from Folk, grey scarf from Cos, orange clock by Naoto Fukasawa from twentytwentyone, Selvage Tug Wool bag by Bill Amberg, tea cosy by Labour and Wait, shoe trolleys from baileys home and garden, Chocolate Cable Knit socks by Paul Smith, Nos Da throw by Donna Wilson from SCP,  Gentleman’s Cap from Rapha, and Arris chair from MARK.
