Forest London is my favourite store.
I first encountered it via its website, prior to our move. I have a deep love for midcentury design. When it comes to the home, I really like re-purposing/recycling furniture and decorative objects.
Found objects seem to give a greater resonance to the concept of home; linking the family in its private dwelling space, with a history beyond its doors.
I’ve found so many wonderful pieces from Forest.
It’s the one place I walk into and feel like Alice in Wonderland.
So let me enjoy my knees weakening, and don’t wake me up too quickly from day-dreaming…
I suddenly need more than one vase.
Then I’m reminded I need dining chairs for Singapore.
If I’m getting new dining chairs and paying for international shipping, doesn’t it make absolute sense to invest in this gem of a dining table tucked away?
Exploring the lower level, I start wondering if another couch, or a pair of arm chairs would be useful.
Then there are these catalogues you can look through to pick fabric for reupholstery. While lacking in print, there still is a substantial amount in terms of colour and texture you can choose from.
