Shopper’s Diary: Few and Far

There seems to be no end to the creative talents of the Conran dynasty. Priscilla Carluccio, sister to Sir Terence, is a veteran of the design world, and she brings her curatorial talents to her new store, Few and Far. The shop is a mix of vintage, contemporary, limited pieces, and hand-crafted goods for the home, all of which change seasonally. The summer look featured French cafe furniture, fishing nets with chestnut handles, Lobmeyer glasses, Moroccan orange wood spoons, and lots of nautical touches. Although the shop is in Knightsbridge, not far from the V & A, it feels intimate and friendly: there’s a small rose shop at the entry, cake is served on Fridays, and the staff wears green gingham aprons.
