Quirky finds at The Perching Post

The Perching Post Light Bulb Vase

If you wander down the High Street in Barnes you'll come across a lovely shop, full of one-off home accessories. The Perching Post was established in 2012 by theatre design graduate Anna Sparshatt. Her passion for interiors, in particular sourcing furniture, made the shop a natural step. Candle Votive Tea Light from The Perching Post. Photo Yeshen Venema

The furniture Anna sources is often restored, and in some cases updated, such as the School Desk Coffee Table with a duel storage compartment. The range of home accessories includes the wonderful Brick Vase from Stolen Form, a beautiful Light Bulb Vase from Bloomingvile and a delicate set of Hummingbird prints from Natural History - The Origin of Style.

The Light Bulb Vase really caught my eye, they're very delicate in the hand, but totally watertight, perfect for a single, short-stemmed flower. They also pour well, so I might use it for topping up my essential oil burner.

If you're a young designer, get in touch with Anna as she is always looking for interesting furniture, ceramics, soft furnishings and decorative items.
