What is it?

Like all the best stories, it started with two best friends and a business plan drawn on a napkin. Today, the homeware and lifestyle online store supports independent makers and small designers from around the world, selling a range of unique and quality handmade products.

What’s the style?

Bright and modern, with a big dollop of quirky.

Why do we love it?

An artful balance of colourful and cute, the online store is a handpicked edit of useful, beautiful items to add to our personal lust list. Originally hailing from South Africa, Victoria & Abigail brings a ray of sunshine to our interiors via illustrated salt and pepper shakers, tactile ceramic serving bowls and oven mitts – in short, anything that will brighten up your kitchen – so it’s a destination for summer dinner party prep. What are we swooning over? Our favourites are the Indigi Table Lamps (£75), the Studded Mugs (now £6.50, above) and Conebush Tea Towels (£9.50, above), all bringing holiday vibes into the home no matter what the Great British weather's doing outside.
