Tablescapes: Fox and Flyte in London

Fox and Flyte, an online purveyor of vintage wares, was founded by three like-minded friends who share a passion for beautifully made things with a history. When not at their day jobs ( Luke Edward Hall is a student of menswear fashion design at Central St. Martin, Duncan Campbell is an Acne Paper editor, and Haeni Kim is in fashion PR), the trio can be found trawling markets in search of objects they can repair and restore. Their mission is to find new homes for objects that might otherwise be considered old-fashioned or fussy. "It is our belief that beautiful things can improve the quality of your life," they say. "But then again, perhaps you just need some teaspoons."
