given all that’s happened over the past few days, the appeal of upping sticks and moving north of the border to my fatherland has never been so high. besides the obvious benefits of a more tolerant outward-looking society, it would also have the added bonus of putting edinburgh interiors store moleta munro on my doorstep; a shop i’ve always heard great things about but not had the pleasure of visiting during any of my recent whistle-stop tours of the city.
founded in 2007 by mid-century enthusiasts juliet munro and justin maddon, the contemporary furniture and lighting showroom sits alongside other independent retailers and restaurants in the up-and-coming area of broughton. inspired by the simplicity and minimalism of scandinavian design, the couple seek to weave this quiet, understated aesthetic seamlessly into the lives of contemporary scots, through their carefully curated edit which brings together pieces from some of my favourite nordic brands, such as muuto, skagerak and &tradition, with a few homegrown talents close to my heart, including another country, byalex and decode.
browsing their online store for some much needed distraction from the current news cycle saw me discover an array of lovely new pieces, including a sleek brass chipperfield lamp by wästberg and a chic monochrome woodline rug by naja utzon popov for carl hansen, which has just moved to the top of my rug wish list (which currently runs to more than a side of a4!)
my lust list (clockwise from top left): around coffee table, muuto; noc light, wrong for hay; helios firebowl, skagerak; northerly blanket, eleanor pritchard; tactile sideboard, punt; tio dining table, massproductions; edge pot, skagerak; matégot trolley, gubi
a little online shopping certainly does wonders for lifting the spirits in despondent times; what’s top of your moleta munro wish list just now?
