Fernandez & Wells

Posted on January 7, 2012 by Toothpicker

Coincidentally, I happened to be at two different Fernandez & Wells branches within a week. I have always like their Soho branch, it's small, casual and I particularly like the fact that it's hidden away off the main street.

London design festival 2011

Posted on September 27, 2011 by Toothpicker

Another year, another design festival... I have attended this for several years now and it's interesting to see how it has evolved.
