Cheap, shabby or chic?

We are getting more and more aware of our environment and how to reuse, recycle and upcycle – a great trend!


During a London visit, I decided to check out the upcoming and hip district of East London with Brick Lane, Columbia Road and Shoreditch. No better place to find creativity, upcycling and recycling! Fancy boutiques and cafes are filled with new and old treasures which make them all unique, each in their own way. There’s simply no room for mainstream! And if you’re not a big fan of these interior trends, the food they serve in these places are very tasty and most likely healthy and organic.

Have a seat!

Have a seat!

A few stores in Luxembourg have joined the trend, the question is – are the costumers ready for it?

Sorry, this seat is taken!
