{SHOPPING} HOMEWARE SHOPPING IN KRAKOW

Shopping is my passion and my relentless search for original homeware never stops when I'm travelling. This week my work took me to Krakow, Poland. In the few minutes of downtime I had, I managed to squeeze in a little visit to the shops.

I went with no expectations which is always a bonus when visiting new cities, especially when Krakow surprises you with these beauts. If you're visiting, or live locally, then make sure you get down to these shops and support local Polish design.

{SHOPPING} FLOOR LAMPS - MY PICK OF THE BEST

{SHOPPING} FLOOR LAMPS - MY PICK OF THE BEST

I’ve been experimenting with lamps vs ceiling lights.

The ambience of a lamp cannot be beat by any ceiling light. Period. Yes, you could have a dimmer switch, but we're not in the 80’s, so why would you?

If you’ve seen my house then you’ll know that I’ve got plenty of both; lights and lamps. (No dimmer switches!) But sometimes I wonder if there’s ever such a thing as too many lamps?

I've scanned the highstreet and online offer of floor lamps to suit all budgets and looks.  These lamps are sure to leave their fellow competitors all in the shade!

Enjoy my pick of the best!
