By George: London Bridged

Design-hounds rejoice! Crossing the pond for offbeat British décor just got astronomically simpler (not to mention cheaper) with the launch of Rockett St George’s new online home and gift shop. Featuring a carefully curated collection of house wares, jewelry and giftware, the site showcases local British talent in a pared down, gotta-have-everything fashion.

Haute picks include:

Jethro Macey’s concrete lace tiles (above left). At once utilitarian and delicate, they make for some of the most romantic flooring we’ve seen in quite some time.

Susan Bradley’s brill Creep shelves. Available in black or white, these aesthetic pleasers feature a rose bough that ornately “climbs” the wall — watering not necessary!

And natch, the smokin’ Annie Gunn Mirror. With “Rebel Yell” written all over it, the mirror’s the perfect way to add some bang to your mantel or wall. What can we say? We want, “More! More! More!”

Rockett St George ships internationally. British dandy indeed!
