Walking past this double-fronted interiors shop, you wont be able to help yourself from taking a second look. Thats because this is no ordinary home store, its also a chocolatier! With Valentines Day coming up, it all makes for a rather irresistible shopping combination!
Owner Chris Bland opened the shop last year with a vision of creating a destination store for designer pieces that would encourage customers to be fearless with their furnishings, while also enjoying some delicious chocolates.
Alongside an impressive pair of wall sconces, I saw a beautiful silver-coloured rococo table with matching mirror, faced by a handsome ebony console and mirror combination.
Small sofas and neat chairs in velvet, suede or cowhide could be just what you are looking for, while the beautiful selection of table lamps with metal bases and silk shades will create the right ambiance in any room.
Accessories come in the shape of funky and functional American diner wall telephones, Marilyn Monroe patterned screens and unusual cushions. Theres also interesting glassware without the added zeros to take them out of your price range, chess sets and a large selection of candles.
Then, right at the back of the store is the tempting array of Belgian chocolates including cognac or champagne truffles, rose or violet creams and a wicked crme brle flavour perfect for Valentines Day gifts.
