Located less than a stone’s throw from the other England at Home shop, this one is just a little more reserved. Focusing more on soft furnishings, furniture and accessories like photo frames, the title ‘England at Home’ is much more fitting to this store.
They sell the most fabulous cushions in original designs: graffiti-style patterns, sketched women’s faces, butterflies, flowers and even Margaret Thatcher. But, at over £40 a pop, you’d have to have some serious cash to splash if you wanted a few of these to scatter over your sofa.
I also love their chunky mango wood letters. As a lover of words and quotations, these greatly appeal to my taste. Again though, at £12.99 each, you’re looking at some rather expensive interior decoration. Their smaller, multicoloured letters (at £4.99 each) are much more suited to my price range.
In true quirky England at Home style though, their mix of old-fashioned, retro and contemporary furniture is peppered with little bowls containing things like BBQ-style worm crisps. Yup, actual edible, flavoured worms. Exactly what every English home needs, eh?
