If I have the chance to add some Orla Kiely homeware items to my mounting collection then you can bet I’ll do it! When online gift store Flamingo Gifts offered to send me items from their large online selection I was delighted. And I was even more delighted when I seen that they stocked Orla Kiely homeware items! They have a great range of stock from a variety of small and large brands and designers, including Ted Baker, Madelaine Floyd and Magpie. Some of the products are really quirky and would make excellent surprise gifts for friends and family.
I couldn’t pass up the chance to own more items from my fave Irish designer. I decided to select some fine bone china Orla Kiely mugs to add to my one lonely Orla Kiely mug! I can’t wait to use these when I have people over for tea. I also picked out a large Orla Kiely plant pot to go alongside the smaller Orla Kiely herb pot I was given as a gift a few years back. I put my sturdy Clausia plant in it and I think it looks great.
I love the retro looking designs of Orla Kiely items – the repeat pattern and the colours just appeal to me. I’m definitely a collector of vintage and vintage style homewares and I can’t see that changing anytime soon. I now have my eye on these animal themed homeware items from Magpie.
