KARE Vienna

Whilst on my ill-fated glove-shopping trip on Monday, I also visited KARE, an interiors shop. It wouldn't be somewhere I'd normally go I guess, but my friend Mitchell, (of persuading-me-to-buy-the-AA-disco-pants fame,) who studied at the Uni. of Vienna last semester had told me to go and have a look, so I did.

And just wow. It's such a fun shop! I'd quite happily have bought 99% of the stuff in there if I had the money (and space to put it all!) I don't know if I was really allowed to take photos, but I sneakily took some anyway with my new phone. I should have asked permission but they might have said no and I really wanted to share the shop on the blog.


Fun pop-art homewares. I love the speech bubble dishes.


I can imagine the Mad Hatter sitting in that chair at his tea party.

These are called "Flinstones" stools. How cool.

There was a matching gigantic wardrobe to that massive purple chest of drawers.


My favourite bit. A whole Union flag print room. Gimme!


I must admit, I did feel a little bit depressed knowing that I'm most probably never going to have enough money to decorate my future home with such incredible furniture and knick-knacks. I'll just have to keep playing the lottery/looking for a rich husband.

It was one of those shops where I felt that I couldn't leave without buying something, so I came away with this amazing "visual dictionary."

It's German-French, which means I can learn vocab in both languages at the same time, without having to look loads of words up and use more than one dictionary. I used to have a "my first 1000 words" book when I was little, and this reminds me of it, only it's in a foreign language and it's for grown-ups! I mean, I now know what a praying mantis is en français and auf Deutsch. Invaluable information I'm sure you'll agree...

  1. I'm sure there will be many occasions when you'll need to know the German and French for praying mantis...
    That shop looks amazing! The purple chest of drawers is like nothing I've seen before! Time to start looking for that rich husband...

  5. That shop looks awesome, I am in love with that blue chair!

    While I'll never afford anything like that either, I think the fun of hunting out cheap and vintage finds, not to mention begging, borrowing and stealing things from relatives more than makes up for it. I've been collecting together unwanted furniture and knicknacks for years, now I just need the house to put them all in!

  6. Ahhh, what a great store. I am seriously in love with the Flinstone stool.
    You definitely have to buy at least one thing from the store before you come back.
