Right in time for the Christmas-present buying season – yes, it’s that time of year again! – Notting Hill’s excellent Book & Kitchen will be hosting their first ever Christmas Shopping Evening on 7th November 2013, from 5.30pm to 9pm.
As well as Book & Kitchen’s own delights – they stock the best in classic and modern literature for all ages – interior design company Maud Interiors and Japanese accessories brand Keiko Uchida will also be displaying their wares on the evening. That means there will be plenty of suitable presents for all book worms, fashionistas and homeware fans available at the event – aptly titled ‘Around the World in 80 Gifts’.
The Kieko Uchida Collection is made up of some very pretty kimono dressing gowns and accompanying accessories, all truly fusing traditional Japanese ideas with modern European aesthetics. Having worked as head of the household division team at Muji for nine years, Ms Uchida launched her own company in 2012 and debuted her collection in the UK at Pulse London in May 2013.
Maud Interiors are an online boutique that offer a wide range of eclectic items – from vintage home accessories, such as hand embroidered tribal cushions, floor cushions, vases and wall hangings – as well as handcrafted gifts. They work with independent designers and social enterprises that seek to provide a livelihood for artisans and help preserve traditional handicrafts.
Don’t forget that you can pop along to Book & Kitchen daily to check out their books, or for a meal – their downstairs restaurant is open for breakfast through to dinner, serving salads, soups, cakes, tea and coffee.
