Let’s shop! Montpelier Interiors

Form an orderly queue, furniture fans - this super-stylish interiors boutique hits Henley in September. In the meantime, here's what we'll be buying...

Montpelier Interiors

Listen up, interiors lovers ! We’re about to get a fabulous new interiors boutique in Henley, courtesy of super-sourcing team Nick and Belinda from Montpelier Interiors (occasionally helped by Marin the dog). Montpelier stocks everything from large furniture and garden accessories to lighting and finishing touches with an emphasis on ‘beautiful, timeworn and timeless things’ – their website is a serious treasure trove, so we’re marking our calendars for September. While we’re waiting, here’s what’s going on our wishlist…

Lamp from Montpelier Interiors

1960s Italian lamp

Che bello! This sleek chrome lamp comes with a built-in ashtray (it is Italian), and will look just at home in a minimalist pad as it will in a vintage-lover’s house.
