It's probably too early to make such a bold statement…but I may have found my favourite homewares shop. It has a distinct Middle Eastern feeling. For me the absolute stand out are the hand made metal light fittings in all sorts of rounded shapes and sizes. Even by day hanging without being switched on they glisten. Ahhh so beautiful. I'll head back take some photos of these and some other treasures and let you low all about the brand, but for now this is just a little teaser. Hope you like!
I thought I'd start off simple. A functional accessory for the everyday. The standout for me is the textile cable which come in black, grey and orange. The idea behind the long cord is to allow you to relax on the couch whilst charging your device (phone or tablet) - sounds like a good idea to me!
The cables are available as micro USB cable (for Samsung Galaxy S3 and S4) and as a 30 pin cable (including iPhone 4). For iPhone owners, there are five special 8 pin Lightning adapters so you can include from iPhone 4 to iPhone 5.
These were found at HEMA / Nieuwendijk 174-176, 1012MT, Amsterdam / www.hema.nl

HELLO WORLD I'm excited about working with you in my search for the inspired and inspiring. I will be jumping through cultural hoops and geographical highlands and lowlands in countries I know and understand, and ones I don't to find all the things that give me joy and help me rejoice in this thing we call life. What am I searching for? Just all the places, spaces and things that make me smile. Will it be an orderly unfolding? Almost certainly not, but I do know it will be fun and with a bit of luck it will fill our day to day with treasures.
