The weekly high street and vintage round-up: Danish chairs and checked tablecloth

As one of House & Garden's decoration stylists she helps compile the magazine's monthly shopping pages, and in her spare time applies her gimlet eye to sourcing antiques for her online store Tat London. Her Instagram feed is a glorious mish-mash of rooms by the world's best designers, coupled with her latest fantastically affordable finds. In the spirit of which we've asked her to compile a weekly selection of affordable but beautiful items - some high street, some vintage - supplying you with a new address book of places to find treasure for your home, no matter your budget.

  • The weekly high street and vintage round-up: Danish chairs and checked tablecloth

    Danish Sling Chairs, £425, from Bancroft.
    Nothing gives me more pleasure than finding a new antique shop that is affordable, has excellent pieces and is based in the UK (shipping furniture can get very expensive very quickly!). Bancroft has ticked the box on all three counts. They deal in European Antiques & Midcentury Pieces. This pair of Danish Sling chairs are so smooth and will help bring a certain amount of cool to any interior.

    Round jute bath mat, £17.99, from H&M Home.
    H&M Home seems to be going from strength to strength since the opening of their new flagship shop on Regent Street, and now making their way into this roundup. In all honesty, I think their textile collections are really rather fabulous. The colours and textures have continued to surprise and delight me. For instance, this brown mat is such a passionate shade of brown; I would never think brown could feel so hearty and matched with the tablecloth coming up next they look so blooming chic together.

    Checked cotton tablecloth, £19.99, from H7M Home.
    I feel I have gushed enough about H&M for this tablecloth to speak for itself.

  • The weekly high street and vintage round-up: Danish chairs and checked tablecloth

    A set of four red vintage Habitat folding chairs plus a pine dining table with a red base, £325, from Punch the Clock.
    Here we have a set of four red vintage Habitat folding chairs plus a pine dining table with a red base, all for the incredibly reasonable price of £325. They'd make a very trendy start to anyone's kitchen, perhaps with the addition of a checked lino floor, although that might over egg this pudding.

  • The weekly high street and vintage round-up: Danish chairs and checked tablecloth

    Italian Citrus Candle Collection, £20, from Sophie Conran.
    In this month's issue, Gabby Deeming has featured one of Sophie's incredibly sweet Toleware sconces. This reminded me of how many beautiful things Sophie has on her website - have a look and I think you will be as taken with it as I was. Nothing could be sweeter than these marvelous candles, a real treat.

  • The weekly high street and vintage round-up: Danish chairs and checked tablecloth

    Hungarian Mustard Bench, £298, from Cart House.
    Cart House offers a good selection of Hungarian antiques, which are full of charm and well priced. This mustard bench could fit the perfect spot in your kitchen, bathroom, or if you are brave enough, your garden. All in all, I think it is a real winner.

  • The weekly high street and vintage round-up: Danish chairs and checked tablecloth

    ABC Cloth, £23 per metre, from Merchant & Mills.
    Since Gabby Deeming and Ruth Sleightholme featured Merchant & Mills fabrics in a recent main decoration shoot, I have become hooked. Now that my eyes have been opened, they have been my first choice for my new curtains. I am very excited about the prospect of new curtains but even more excited about sharing them on this list.

    LILLHOLMEN wall lamp, £12, from Ikea.
    As you may have guessed by my curtain comment, I am currently decorating my flat. It is all very well and good telling people what to buy, but I feel paralysed when it comes to my own decisions. It can make one feel like quite the fraud; thankfully we have so many sources of inspiration to lean on - this idea came through the realms of Instagram, Matilda Goad's account to be precise. She is using these in her own home, and I know she will make them look a million bucks. Luckily for us, they are only £12.

  • The weekly high street and vintage round-up: Danish chairs and checked tablecloth

    Shaped table, £89.99, from Zara Home.
    Zara Home is a real rabbit hole; you think you've only been on there a few minutes, but an hour later you've screenshotted a thousand tealight holders. This guy will hold your attention - made of Paulownia Wood (lightweight yet proportionately durable - i googled it), it's something of a statement table with its great shape and fun details. It's also in the sale so now under £100.

  • The weekly high street and vintage round-up: Danish chairs and checked tablecloth

    Ocean Bottle, $44, from Ocean Bottle.
    I always have at least one piece which isn't necessarily 'Homeware' on this list. Never has this spot been taken by such a worthy object, as for each of these bottles sold, the equivalent of 1000 ocean-bound plastic bottles are collected in impoverished coastal communities around the world. The company won't compromise on this number, and it is where the majority of the profits go. What is there left to say, apart from let's get in line!
