I moved a few  months ago and with my Preloved Shop growing and the being busy with the blog, I earmarked a room to be my home office.

I wanted a practical space, I needed to have somewhere quiet to write and then enough desk space for when we have deliveries to be able to store the items and act as a place where people can pop in and try on. I also have most of my meetings at home, so there was a lot to fit in.

I stumbled across West Elm, while I was wandering around Tottenham Court Road in London, trying to find an office chair.

West Elm is to furniture, similar to  what COS is to clothes, you can find those gorgeous pieces that are so similar to designer items, which would be far more expensive.

I found my investment pieces of furniture at Lotts Road which I have written about in an older post but I needed some well priced but beautiful pieces to finish off some of the rooms.

West Elm Table Lamp

West Elm, also offer a free at home design service. A member of the team,  popped out to my home and measured and advised me on the pieces that work in the space I had.

I ordered a great desk lamp, it is so robust and I love the contrast of the bras, glass and marble. It is now on sale at West Elm.  I have my eye on a the marble pillar lamp for my bedroom.

West Elm Desk Chair

My office chair also comes from Wet Elm, it pivots, is super comfortable the fabric is perfect as it goes with everything . I looked at so many desk chairs and they were either too practical or just too expensive. This chair is the perfect height and super comfortable and it pivots. The rug is also from West Elm.  I really want one of the Kilim rugs for my bedroom.

The customer service and delivery team are very efficient, which sets West Elm apart, a lot of the online stores, which often  don’t hold stock and you can find something you love but have to wait for months.


You can visit the store on Tottenham Court Road, London or shop online .

Now the children are back at school, you now know where you will find me!
