Today’s new discovery is A Rum Fellow, a site selling homewares and accessories from all over the world. It’s a real mix of vintage and contemporary so you will find 20th century French design next to handwoven rugs from Brazil and Peruvian chairs.
The Huanca chair, pictured above, is a Danish chair by Kai Kristiansen upholstered using authentic handwoven Peruvian fabric sourced from the Andes in Peru. The textile was made by a Quechua weaver and features condors and llamas as well as intricate geometric patterns that are the signature of this tribe’s style.
I love that a place that sells handwoven vintage fabric can also find room for a neon vase like this.
Dylan O’Shea, perhaps the eponymous rum fellow, says the site is a finishing school for exceptional homeware, gifts, and accessories.
Calling himself an intrepid explorer, he says: “Mid 20th century French design meets hand loomed Quechan textiles; Amazonian hallucinogenic hand weaving meets Suffolk duck down. Every item is rich in heritage but not tied to the past.”
This is just a taster of what’s available. There are also lots of paintings and artwork.
