If you haven’t discovered Nkuku yet you’re in for a treat. I have a few of their pieces at home, and they are one of my favourite stores for individual homewares that you don’t see anywhere else. The emphasis is on sustainable materials that embrace traditional skills. As a company they celebrate organic beauty and character, so you won’t find mass-produced items in the collections. And their brochure when it drops through the door is always inspirational to browse through. So, just in case you think this is sponsored, it’s not. I just love their collections of stunning, handmade objects out of natural materials that look already aged and timeless.
Take a Look
Terrariums and Planters
Hanging planters and terrariums are the perfect way to create an indoor urban garden. Especially when space is limited. Succulents are the best plants for them as they are relatively slow growing (although I have one that is sprinting away), and they look even more stunning in a group.
Jara Terracotta Wall Hung Planter
Isn’t this just a stunning way to display plants too. It’s probably best hung on an outside wall so that the pots can drain freely, and I’d probably plant it up with herbs and hang it near the kitchen door.
The Bathroom Collection
As with all the other products, the new bathroom collection focuses on a subtle palette of natural hues and fibres. It features metals, waffle textured towels and rattan storage.
Indigo Drop Tableware
This beautiful tableware is handmade by talented artisans in Vietnam. Each individual dot is painted free-hand and would make everyday dining that bit more special.
Arbari Pots and Planters
This attractive collection of zinc pieces in elegant shapes are next on my shopping list. The aged rust finish just adds to their charm land they create a great indoor/outdoor feel.
I’ve actually bought these frames as gifts before and they look stunning filled with photographs and mementos. And as shown even dried flowers. Available in either antique brass or zinc.
