Quirky Homeware

Tuesday 2 August 2011

A couple of weekends ago, whilst taking a stroll around Covent Garden, I found my nose pressed up against the glass of quirky homeware store Pylones. I convinced myself that I could stick to my budget and just have a quick browse. I managed to restrain myself but only just. I checked out their website when I got home (purely for blog research, I wasn’t thinking of buying anything. Honest). Their stuff is pretty darn cool. What do you think of quirky homeware products? Do they have a place in your home?


1. Teapot; 2. Angel Mug; 3. Nail Scissors; 4. Umbrella; 5. Garden Spade; 6. Radio; 7. Rice bowl; 8. Scissors; 9. Hairbrush; 10. Grater; 11. Stapler;                12. Hammer


  1. Hey Meghan, thanks for stoping by my way doll.
    Ah, Covent Garden, now I truly miss my other home!
    Loving the cup with wings and the stapler! How much fun are these?


  2. I used to sell those graters at one of my old jobs, people loved them!


  3. Definitely quirk...I think I'd like a hammer like that but stapler is quite scary!

  4. I am in love with that teapot. In fact, it's all so adorable! Cute finds!

  5. They have the best greeting cards too. I found myself buying a stack of greeting cards not because I needed them, but because they were so clever and funny.

  6. cute stuff! I used to work at Cartoon Network so was always hoarding stuff like this. Powerpuff Girls and Hello Kitty always a favorite! Thanks for visiting my blog too! xx

  7. Those really are crazy...but for some reason, you still kinda feel yourself being drawn to them! I think I might actually want to own that adorable little grater...(c: But I think I'm going to have to resist, too, because the hubby would think I had lots my mind!

  8. I always find the coolest gifts at Pylones - love it!

  9. Dude these are so fun and quirky! Great post!

  10. I'm such a sucker for stuff like this. You're talking to someone who has a broom with a happy face on it. I am always meaning to start picking up a few Alessi pieces...you just reminded me! Wish that store was near me!
