A new home interiors brand was recently brought to my attention that I thought I would share today, OutThereInteriors.com. At the moment particularly I’m always looking for new sources of furniture and decorative items for my home, but even the old faithfuls can get samey and of course I’m on the look out for a budget bargain, so I was pleased to see an eclectic mix of pieces there with some at very good prices. There are also several ‘in the style of’ items that you may have seen elsewhere, that are at much lower prices. (As with all designer reproductions, make sure you check the dimensions thoroughly if you’re looking for a good ‘copy’.)
Here’s my pick of the best items – the range is diverse with everything from mirrored furniture to shabby chic armoires and retro sign lighting.
I’ve tried to show a broad selection of items here to illustrate the breadth of styles available. Out There Interiors is well worth a browse if you have an item in mind or if you are just browsing for something different.

Whenever I’m looking at inspiring interiors images online, I’m always drawn to more eclectic rooms, with a mix of mid-century modern, new, vintage and reclaimed or salvaged pieces. Trying to strike that balance is difficult, but even more difficult can be finding the right pieces. What used to be a simple case of choosing a sofa, armchair and TV unit, plus maybe a console or coffee table, is now so much more complicated as no chair is complete without a quirky side table, the right lamp must dress the console and layers of rugs, art and ‘found’ objects now all finish the styling of the room.
Fortunately I think the fun is in the finding, but not at the expense of having an unfinished room forever and then there’s the price tag attached to all these coveted items. So I was pretty excited to spot this Lovbacken side table in IKEA of all places.
Lovbacken is actually an updated IKEA design from 1956 and so it’s mid-century looks are in fact genuine. Cashing in on the fact that we all like a bit of history and a story with our design pieces, IKEA are reissuing it for the Autumn 2013 collection available now in stores.
The leaf shaped top gives it an unusual look and the rich tones of the poplar veneer (the original was rosewood) and dark legs are further enhanced by the brass tipped feet. All for just £40! I’m definitely going to be snapping one of these up for my living space, before they sell out – it’s causing quite a stir in design circles.
