A Note From Eva

“Many of the objects I treasure were found in flea markets and second-hand shops in Paris, Lisbon, Cairo, London and further afield. This shelf edit is inspired both by my own possessions and by things I wish I owned. Anthropomorphic vessels and woven textiles are an ever-growing obsession. Preparing and serving tea is another great source of pleasure; the ritual brings me peace and comfort, and is perhaps what I enjoy the most, above the beverage itself. I do not handwrite as much as I would like to but I still collect cards and stationary. Lastly, I have included a couple of limited-edition artist’s prints, which are a great way to support arts organisations and start building a collection of your own.”
