New homewares can be expensive. That is no secret, just take a trip to your local department store and you can practically hear your bank account cry. And the process in which they are produced is far from wholesome, with there being a good chance of harmful chemicals being emitted, raising their carbon footprint significantly. But don’t worry folks, Barnardo’s has the affordable, trendy and sustainable answer.
Launching in all 710 stores across the UK on 9th February 2019, Barnardo’s will be delivering the big interior style trends of 2019 in the form of their own in-store Homeware Edit. From conversation starting statement pieces to quirky vintage accessories, this winter Barnardo’s is claiming to be THE place to find genuine Retro, Vintage and Boho gems at affordable prices.
Alongside the Homeware Edit, Barnardo’s is also launching a booklet that aims to teach and inspire, showing some quick and easy ways to accessorize rooms while also giving a handful of handy hints and tips on how to truly make a space YOUR space.
