swarm gallery in London…
Posted in handmade, homewares, interiors, london, stores April 13th, 2011 by pia

Did you know that anthropologie in London (Kings Road)have a beautiful gallery space? And did you know that my friend Leslie – who is responsible for sending me that fabulous bag featured in my last post – has an exhibition of her wares in there right now? It’s times like these that I wish I could wiggle my nose and pop up just in front of that window, spending the afternoon wondering through the gallery, being inspired all the while…

I’ve known about the gallery exhibition for some time now as Leslie has been working on creating pieces for it for the last 6 months. And I’ve also been lucky enough to see all these pieces during the making of, so seeing these photos of the space all set up is super special…

If you are in London, I do hope you can find some time to go and visit the gallery to see all the amazing things made by swarm. The exhibition will be up until May 10th. In the meantime, you can also visit the anthroplogie online gallery which features more individual swarm pieces, with information and images on each creation.

    …chairs on hangers…on hooks. Oh, my!
    There is a flair of Alice here.

    As if I didn’t love Anthropologie enough before – this seals the deal for life. I particularly love that collage over the desk with what looks like prints and old frames. Wonderful photographs that seem to fit the subject so well.

    Thanks for the tip, I’ll pedal over and have a look. Really look forward to your book being available in the UK soon too.
