Sing with me! 🎶 It’s the most wonderful time of the year 🎶 ….. it’s AnthroDay! The blessed day which comes around every couple of months, when Anthropologie has 20% off everything. Well, almost everything. Some items are excluded (boo, hiss, swizz). It’s most things, though, and that is reason enough to be excited.
Anthropologie is one of my favourite homeware shops, reliably great at crockery, mugs, bedding, cushions and rugs. An excellent place to buy a present for someone. An excellent place to buy a present for yourself. Without Anthropologie, my house would be much emptier, and I’d be much richer.
Here are my top 9 picks for this week, which contain affiliate links:
Top row, L-R:
Nathalie Lete ‘Charmant’ dinner plate – I love every exquisite detail of this plate, I’m always drawn to Nathalie’s whimsical, pretty illustrations. I have bought this plate, and it’s weighty. It’s destined for the wall, far too pretty to eat dinner from. It’s excluded from the promotion though (sadface).
‘Samba’ cutlery set – can’t decide between gold and silver cutlery? Have both in one.
Nathalie Lete ‘12 Days’ festive tea towel – ask not ‘do I need a 12 days of Christmas tea towel, illustrated with images of woodland creatures?’, but ‘how soon can I buy a 12 days of Christmas tea towel, illustrated with images of woodland creatures?’.
Middle row, L-R:
Anna Spiro boxed cards – Anna is a designer for whom I have much admiration, so I am delighted she’s done a range with Anthropologie. These notelets are great, buy and send them to your loved ones as a surprise. We don’t write enough letters these days and I can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t be thrilled to receive one.
Animal porcelain candelabra – at first glance, this looks a bit like sort of energetic animal orgy. But isn’t it magnificent?! Admittedly, it costs £888, and I think it’s fair to say most of us will not be purchasing it, even with 20% off, but if you do please use my affiliate link (jokes).
Fox Flowers ‘Fruit Salad’ dried/faux bouquet – again, pricey, but this mix of dried and faux blooms will last for ages, will not go brown, and will delight you daily.
Bottom row, L-R:
Anna Spiro tapered candleholder – Anna, again. Just a lovely, wholesome, timeless bit of wood turning.
Natural rattan table lamp – hhhnnnnnggggg. That is the sound which I emitted when I first saw this lamp. Marvel at its gently bulging lopsidedness.
Troyan buffet plate – this is just so reminiscent of the ‘70s, I LOVE it. I’m certain Tom and Barbara Good from The Good Life would have eaten their self-grown veg from a plate like this.
