Fab Friday Bargains: Home accessories and decor from Anthropologie

Friday, April 26th, 2013

We love the eclectic range of home accessories and decor available at Anthropologie, but aren’t always quite so fond of their prices.

The good news is they currently have some items reduced in their sale, so here are some juicy picks for today’s Fab Friday Bargains offering.

Best priced murano glass

We love the colourful swirl pattern on the Aurora glass tumbler. This special piece is handcrafted in Murano, Italy using the Millefiori technique. It’s now £24.95 (was £48).


Hide and Seek thermo sensitive wallpaper

You can be forgiven to think this is a lot to pay for wallpaper, even with the reduction – now £149.95 (was £299). But this is no ordinary wallpaper – it’s magic wallpaper!

The Hide and Seek wallpaper is by design duo, Custhom, and it’s screen printed using thermo-sensitive inks, so as the temperature in a room rises, hidden images are revealed.

So what starts off simply looking like a classic black and white design, actually turns out to be this:

Hide and Seek butterfly wallpaper

Clever, huh?

Table made from an old film reel

This amazing film reel end table is made from a vintage 35mm film roll, reclaimed automotive gears and finished with a toughened glass top. It’s still not cheap despite a big reduction in price, but it is a rather unique design.
