When imagining my future house it tends to go a little something like this: sprawling country mansion, acres of land, Range Rover in the drive way, shabby chic interiors, Farrow and Ball neutrals on the walls and lots of quirky little pieces dotted around the house from Moroccan bazaars, Parisian antiques houses and family-run shops in little Netherlands villages. Not too much to ask, right?
And while the country estate and Range Rover may have to wait a decade or two, having come across the fabulous Jasmine Way website, I can already start building my collection of unusual home accessories.
Founded in 2008, the team at Jasmine Way have spent the last three years travelling through continental Europe and the Middle East, in search of unique and distinctive pieces from small suppliers, thus ensuring an element of exclusivity in each and every one of their products.
As the resident bookworm at Amazing PR HQ, one of my favourite finds on offer from Jasmine Way has got to be this Cardboard Stool Bookworm. Created by Stefanie Keppler and Ingo Fremmer, founders of a German design studio, this unusual stool certainable won’t be able to buy from Ikea. And never having excelled in DIY, it’s thankfully very easy to assemble, can be used as either a stool or a side table, and can be dismantled after use if lacking in space. And at just £23, it’s an absolute steal, so check out their website and snap yourself up a unique treat for that future dream home of your own.
