If you’ve been lucky enough to visit chic European cities like Madrid, Munich or Paris, you may have come across Maisons du Monde.
It can only be described as interiors heaven, located all over France, Belgium, Italy and more – and now in London. Have you seen the TV adverts? Get ready.
We spotted a store when we were on holiday in Bologna and, having browsed some of their accessories online in the past, made a beeline for it.
They’ve basically spotted and ‘done’ every interiors trend to perfection, from little tea light holders and quirky teapots to printed fabrics, sofas, wardrobes and oven gloves. You could buy a tea towel from there and it would be cool.
Pricing varies from product to product, with vases from £4.99 to £119.90, chairs from £69.99 and rugs from £159.90. I can’t vouch for quality, as we had a flight to catch and zero suitcase space to stash our favourite items, but it certainly seems to stack up against interior stores that we’re more familiar with in the UK.
Here’s what we saw in Bologna (still in love with that angular teapot) and a couple of picks available now. Have you been before? Let me know what you think!
Wooden mail sorter, £69.99; Metal pineapple box, £12.99, Blush silk bedspread, £99.99; Udaipur room divider, £199.90; Mauricette fabric and solid birch vintage chair (in a range of colours), £79.99; Copenhagen/capri pots (from a range), £8.99.
