When it comes to interior style, my tastes definitely move towards vintage and classic looks. I love the idea of pieces that take their inspiration from the past, and have a range of eclectic vintage pieces that have been picked up from antique shops, vintage fairs and junk shops. But sourcing vintage inspired pieces takes time, and can also take serious money, so it is always lovely to find a brand that sells pieces that have that authentic feel, but take out all the leg work. Dandelion Interiors is just such a brand.
Dandelion Interiors have a wonderful range of homewares and furniture that have been specially curated for the discerning customer. They stock lines such as Art Deco style console tables, French inspired chandeliers, decorative pieces that fall under the catogory of weird and wonderful, and generally offer something that you will not find in a High Street interiors store. It is the sort of site you need to visit when you are looking for something with the WOW! factor to finish a room in style.
I have been recently looking for a statement clock to finish my dining room. The room is shabby chic in style so I wanted a clock that had a similar feel rather than something neat and tidy. I also had a specific place to put the clock so want something sizeable, rather than a smaller mantle clock. I found the perfect piece at Dandelion.
The Large Antiqued Black Industrial Mantle Clock with Manual Calendar is described as sleek, sophisticated and handmade. It is a very large and heavy clock (dimensions are 46x31x15cm) and has the markings of a clock that you may’ve found in a hotel 80 years ago.
The clock has an aged, shabby look to it – there are signs of rust on the case and on the face, and parts of the clock look like they have seem better days, but this just adds to it’s overall charm and beauty. This clock looks like it has a story to tell, like it has seen lots of comings and goings in the Parisian Grand Hotel, and this makes it a really stunning piece. The date features works through manual twisting of handles on the side of the case, and the clock needs a battery that can be added by opening the door at the back.
If you are looking for something that is not only beautiful, but is a little different too, check out Dandelion Interiors.
