Say hello to a new blog feature! I am steadily becoming obsessed with all things interior since we bought our flat at the start of Summer, and every spare penny is being plundered into purchasing those must-have little bits to start making the flat our home. I’m going to start a monthly (perhaps more, we’ll see) feature on my favourite interior stores at the moment, starting with a new find, Cult Furniture.
Cult Furniture is a fantastic online destination for sleek and stylish, retro-inspired pieces at amazing prices. They specialise in ‘modern classics’; think Eames-inspired chairs in candy colours, mid-century-style tables and super-fun lighting. We’ve bought a couple of pieces from Cult for the flat and we won’t be stopping anytime soon!
I am obsessed with these Eames-inspired chairs; unfortunately they probably wouldn’t work with the Victorian style of our flat but it doesn’t stop me dreaming! That mint green one would make the perfect office chair, while the blush pink would feature heavily in either my dream dinner table or in my ideal dressing room. Perfection! They even have rocking-chair versions that I would have in the bedroom in an instant if there were room…
I also love the tables; these hairpin-style tables/stools are priced so well and are a stylish addition to your front room or hallway. They come in so many colours and finishes, from black and wood to copper and mint green, and would be the perfect way to add a little something to an empty space. I really want one in our hallway as a telephone table, complete with a retro phone, of course.
Cult Furniture also specialise in lighting; there are so many options available and so many amazing lights that are seemingly impossible to find on the high street for a decent price. We bought a cool copper cage pendant for our bedroom’s ceiling light, from Asda, but finding coordinating side lights for our bedside lamps was proving impossible; Cult was the only place that had matching copper cages – perfect! They were a great price and were delivered two days after I ordered them, I was so impressed. Those lamps are out of stock now, but there’s so many stylish options on the site – including lots of copper. I particularly like this ceiling pendant too; a line of them hanging would be an amazing centrepiece to a room.
I love the retro lamp – we have one like this from John Lewis but I’ve never liked it; it’s too much industrial and not enough chic for my liking. This copper version is gorgeous, I think I could definitely make some space for it in my living room…
And in terms of smaller accessories, Cult comes up roses again. I found this set of three melamine side plates in coordinating colours, which I really liked. Our crockery collection is a mash-up of whatever colours IKEA had left in stock and dishes from our first flat together – everything is functional but nothing matches, nothing looks especially cool. But these angular plates, in a palette of coordinating shades, would definitely brighten up my crockery cupboard and make meals a bit more interesting. I chose the ‘Pinks’ palette, but it also comes in a ‘Teals’ palette, with soft yellow and blue shades. £15 isn’t especially cheap for three plates, but they aren’t the sort of thing that needs replacing regularly and they look much cooler than your regular dishes. I know, I’m getting excited about dishes.
Finally, I really liked this cute angular vase; more and more of our possessions are getting that geometric, 1960s style and this vase would fit in with our vibe perfectly. Plus, I love the soft lemon yellow shade!
So there we go – my first Interior Spotlight post. Will you be shopping at Cult Furniture?
