It is no secret that shopping in Selfridges is a truly extraordinary experience. The calibre of products for sale and quality of design make it one of the top retail destinations in the UK. The all-encompassing shopping experience offers buyers everything they have ever wanted with fashion, accessories, beauty, home, technology and food all under one roof. Recently the homeware department has been making a splash as people are becoming a lot more design focused than ever before and want their homes to reflect their personal style. Selfridges is at the cutting edge of homeware design, showcasing a large variety of quality products by contemporary designers and brands. They stay at the forefront of design by always being on the lookout for the next best thing.
The addition of the avant-garde and gender neutral pieces by Darkroom within the homeware department has been incredibly well received. Darkroom’s pieces are inspired by graphic contrasts, the geometry found in tribal patterns and the structural simplicity of modern and post-modern design. Their ranges are an eclectic mix of handmade accessories for men, women and most significantly the home. Bold and linear, the products are not for the faint hearted however they fit perfectly within the store and would be a welcome addition to any contemporary home.
Exclusive to Selfridges in the UK, up and coming Danish design company Design Letters has achieved great international success in only a few years. Their success has come from the launch of a design series featuring typography hand drawn in 1937 by the iconic and world famous Danish architect, Arne Jacobsen. The letters were originally created for the internal signage at the Aarhus City Hall and DESIGN LETTERS found the original hand drawings at the Royal Library in Copenhagen in 2011 and contacted Arne Jacobsen’s relatives in order to get permission to use the letters on a home accessories collection. Not only is the aesthetic appeal of the products cool and quirky, the wonderful story behind the product design makes the appeal sky rocket. The large range of colours and bold graphics will add a playful modern look to your home and with the choice of letters from A-Z these pieces make great gifts for friends and family. There is also a super cute range of Melamine for children.
