The talent and skills of some of the world’s best designers are contained in this store. Chairs, vases, platters, bowls, necklaces, shell work, baskets, silverware, jugs, figurines, teapots and coffee services are all brimming with the creativity of generations of designers and makers, and are a rich source of inspiration today.
