The Conran Shop
The den of designs.
Let's start by addressing my recent crime on dumping fashion for furniture. For someone who's already finished moving, I've been spending too much time in The Conran Shop, if I'm being honest. As some of you might get frighten since its located in the all so famous Chelsea area (I sure did), there's still hips of stuff for us. Plus, there's always the Marleybone store, which not only comes with amazing sales, but also a great cafe to relax after serenading the shop hoping you can bring everything home.
The reason I visited, is because my friend send me a photo of their book sale. And, as an official book warm, I just had to. I ended up carrying two heavy hardcover picture book on my 40 mins tube ride. Hello, triceps. Even though you don't splurge on anything, it will still be quite an inspiring experiences. I am extremely happy to see so many beautiful designs and belongings. So here it is, a little tour of the Marleybone shop, I do recommend you pay a visit, dig in the sale a little. Actually, go after the sale. And see the complete version of the Conran Apartment located on level 2.
最近著迷於逛傢俱和選物店，喜歡在一個規劃好的空間，挖掘生活上能夠用到的獨特物品。Conran Shop是英國有名的設計選物店，商品從沙發、餐桌一路概括到文具和書籍。許多人或許和我一樣，因為聽到店面位於精品林立的 Chelsea 所以一直沒有前往，不過其實仔細找，也是能發現符合自己能力範圍的設計小物。又或者，和我一樣到 Marylebone 店看看也行，這間分店還另外規劃了咖啡廳讓客人休息吃點東西呢！
一開始是因為朋友傳了他們的書本打折區給才決定特別去看看的，當初因為接下來還有約所以逛得很倉促，所以同一個禮拜的週末立刻再前往一次。其實，就算不消費，到了 The Conran Shop 晃晃也是一場令人滿意的視覺享受，看看各種創意的設計，也會激起自己對於生活上的不一樣靈感。假如你恰巧在倫敦，我非常建議花點時間在裡頭逛一圈。雖然最近在打折促銷，但我倒是建議等活動過後再去，這樣反而能看見他們更完整的規劃和巧思。位於的 Marylebone 分店，平時在二樓還會有美麗的 The Conran Apartment 可以欣賞唷。
Now I wish I had discovered this place before I finished decorating my flat. Kidding, I love my place, I'm pretty proud with the work, in general.
