In our earlier posting, we promised you details of the lighting and other decorative pieces that had just arrived from Pacific Lifestyle. These things are now on display in the shop, so here are a few photographs. The table lamps, above, came in at very attractive prices, making them excellent value. They range from £45 to £95 each, complete with shade, and you can save an extra 10 per cent if you buy a matching pair! Ideal if you are freshening up the guest room ready for the festive season or simply want to brighten the long winter nights!
Casting a warm, welcoming glow can also be done by these super candle lanterns. The tall, cylinder hurricane lamp is an impressive 45cm high and would look good in any part of the house. At £29.95 (candle and glass beads not included) it is exceptional value. The tradition lantern is also a good buy at £24.50. Both lanterns could easily cost twice as much. The "fruit bowls" are made from recycled glass in Spain. The round one is available in what is called an alabaster pattern, in either translucent white or blue at only £7.95.
You see the bowls again here, along with a banana bowl shape (left), only in blue at £10.95. The large flower-shaped bowl in turquoise and gold looks suitably celebratory for only £19.95. We also have a large platter in a black and silver "starburst" shape (not shown) that is rather more expensive at £39.95. This picture also shows a WoodWick Fusion candle in handblown glass with a 'linen bouquet' fragrance (£14.95); a small vase in turquoise sparkle glass (£17.50) and one of Suzanne Kirk's handmade owls (£8).
More lanterns are available in this cream colour with a gold wash, in three sizes. At only £6.95, £10.95 and £15.95 any combination can make an effective display. As can these friendly ceramic bears! With a crackle glaze and rustic finish, their charm never fails (£5.95 and £9.95).
The shop is bursting with all sorts of wonderful ideas for gifts and home decor, more than we can show here. We hope that many of them could help solve your shopping needs and we look forward to seeing you.
