Bespoke


If you are at the cutting edge of style, and have money to burn, then this is the place for you. Designer furniture, custom made, is the order of the day at Bespoke. I took this photo in the evening, when the place was closed, and I was really drawn to the green tiles and the ornate wrought iron window guards. The contents of the shop didn't do anything for me.

And now, in the style of Ming in New York, it's question time. Have you got anything designer or custom made in your home?

I too like the aqua green tiles. As for designer or custom made things in our home? None that I can think of. But outside, we have two custome made adirondak chairs that I built from Norm Abram's plans. does that count?

Don't have any of those items you mentioned, but I have a few interesting antiques. Unfortunately, I still have a few "early Halloween" items from an earlier time when we were newly married and pretty broke. Yes, the colour of the tiles is very striking!

No, Ming the Merciless is too poor for custom made anything.

When I saw BESPOKE, all I can think of is custom made suits and tuxedos. I didn't realize it applies to furniture as well.

Our home is full of clutter, so I don't think we have any space left for designer furniture. I have the odd bit of label clothing, which I got from charity shops, as I wouldn't waste my money on £50 T shirts etc. Even if I had won the lottery.

I do like those green tiles.

A lot of my furniture is either 2nd hand or flatpack, but it does the job for now. My husband has a couple of armchairs which are (I think) bespoke, and are rather lovely. We're more ceramics than furniture collectors though (the antiques of tomorrow!).

I have an ecletic mix. I am not a designer person. Only designer anything is a signed Gerald Scarfe exclusive painting. Oh and of course Gary's BBC Originals.

Good question and interesting image.
Your blog is getting pretty bespoke it's self.

I have a coffee table and 3 end tables that I had made out of Formica years ago and I have NEVER regretted the decision to spend that much money on furniture that is pretty indestructible.....
