UNIQUE HOMEWARES IN THE
HEART OF BATH
Margaret’s Buildings is one of Bath’s loveliest spots, a little haven of independent shops and cafes along a peaceful pedestrian street. For business owner Vanessa, it was love at first sight – the perfect place to realise her dream of creating an interior design shop full of beautiful vintage and contemporary homewares and artworks.
Everything in the shop follows our ethos of sustainability, whether that means recycled materials, fairtrade origins, small-scale handmade production, or simply showing a little love and care to vintage finds rather than replacing them with something new. Vanessa is a self-confessed addict to the pot-luck thrill of flea markets, junk shops and auctions, where you never know quite what wonderful treasures and unexpected inspirations you might unearth, and personally curates the gorgeously eclectic selection of items on sale. It’s not just about the old, though – at Homefront we love the juxtaposition of vintage and contemporary styles, and stock exquisite handmade work from a number of local artists, including ceramics, textiles and jewellery.
And as well as providing customers with pretty pieces for the home, we’re also keen to encourage them to get a little creative themselves. Homefront is Bath’s chosen partner for the fabulous Grand Illusions range of vintage paints, ideal for both interiors and furniture, and tucked away underneath the shop is the perfect space for classes and workshops which cover all sorts of design projects, led by local experts with a wealth of experience to share.
For more information on our classes, click here, or just drop in & say hello at our beautiful shop, where we’ll also be delighted to answer questions & advise on any interior design projects you have planned, or to help you to select something from our range that’s just right for your home.
