What’s new on the home decor scene? Kara O’Reilly brings you the latest news in interiors

Artisan appeal

Craft is back in vogue with people again appreciating the beauty and collectability of individually hand-crafted items made by skilled artisans. If you are new to the whole scene, a brilliant starting point is Contemporary Applied Arts (caa.org.uk), which showcases some of the best British designer-makers; but you should also take a look at the newly launched Home of Artisans. Founded by Belinda Hall, it’s a web-based marketplace intended to represent and sell one-off and limited-edition works by crafts-makers from all around the world. There are currently 45 vetted makers on the site, with plans to add to them. homeofartisans.com

I have always had a soft spot for East London’s Labour & Wait, which has the knack of making enamel milk pans and balls of string completely desirable. Well, now it has a West London rival in the shape of Native & Co. Co-owned by Taiwan-born and British-Japanese product designers, Sharon Jo-Hun Hung and Chris Yoshiro Green, the Notting Hill store opened last December and ever since has been selling the kinds of pared-down homewares you can usually only find in Japan and Taiwan. I challenge you to visit without buying one of its gorgeous enamel kettles… 116 Kensington Park Road W11 2PW; nativeandco.com
