Fringed Floral Placemat (set of 2) £11.99
Sometime’s Zara Home slips off my radar for a while – they’re not that big on advertising – although they have some amazing lookbook campaigns and the home business seems to take a backseat to their main ( 68 Zara stores vs 13 Zara Home’s in the UK). However once I remember – I fall down their rabbit hole of a shopping experience – where the sheer volume of unusual and affordable homeware outweighs the rest on the high street.
Their online site and physical stores just brim with so many varying options of glassware, crockery, cushions and linens – you will almost never end up buying the same thing as your friend does. The brand are also great at tapping into colour trends – if you want something in a blue floral print or fuchsia details – you will find cushions, tableware, bedding – all to match your theme. Likewise they also always come up with some crazy collections like this season’s Underwater theme which frankly make me love them more.
Anyway – since you won’t find me advising you to shop fuchsia pink or adorn your home with sea-creatures – here are my ten organic and monochrome highlights from their new range – brushed metals, cane, rattan, digital block prints and black pom-poms abound. Can I have them all please?
