What you can expect…

You could easily miss Taylor Jane while walking through Reigate town centre – largely because it’s found inside a shop called House of Building. Take a second glance at the large double-fronted windows, however, and you have a taste of the stylish and unusual furniture and accessories that are to be found up the black spiral staircase on the first floor.

First impressions…

You’ll probably gasp, as I did, at the fun and fabulous furnishings that you won’t find anywhere else on the High Street. First to catch my eye were the bold and brightly-coloured antlers – so on-trend for wall decoration at the moment. They are all real and naturally shed from farm-bred deer. On one wall is subtle yet sexy wallpaper patterned with Marilyn Monroe in iconic nude pose – there’s also a range of skull heads if you prefer. Among the edgy and urban items of furniture, you’ll find side tables with the body and legs of an ostrich; solid dining tables made from reclaimed scaffolding wood; and upcycled 1920s style armchairs in jazzy black and white fabrics.

Unusual finds…

All around is a selection of fun finds sourced by owner Kirsty Taylor, who says she wanted to bring something different to the High Street. I thought the large cowhide rugs were great value and I loved the ones with the bling of gold or silver. The very colourful fire extinguishers are practical yet decorative too. And the array of utterly bizarre pictures could float your boat. More traditional yet equally unique are the light fittings – some are industrial light bulbs, others drops of shimmering glass crystals.

Other highlights…

From time to time, Kirsty will include a pop-up shop within her store. When I visited, it was exquisite lingerie, but it could be stylish shoes or a range of handbags. Here too are beautifully scented candles from Paris; a range of gentlemen’s toiletries including traditional badger brushes; and lovely jewellery. You can also pick up an unusual card, simply stylish Sophie Conran tableware or a brightly-coloured cushion.

While you’re there…

You might want to have a cup of coffee and a bun or cake at the Urban 9 café that’s also on the first floor, or chat with Kirsty’s partner David who runs House of Building – the shop for building projects on the ground floor.

Additional services…

Kirsty is happy to source items for your home, from furniture to accessories, and is always willing to offer styling advice too. All the larger items bought at Taylor Jayne can be delivered locally free of charge.
