    Quirky home ware emporium RE is joining forces with with contemporary art centre Baltic in Gateshead for a unique pop-up shop this month. Opening on Saturday and running until the New Year, fans of RE will be able to shop for the brand’s reclaimed, restored, recycled and rediscovered objects and home accessories at the Baltic Shop, combining two great shops under one roof.  Top finds include pressed glass serve ware and tableware from RE’s own product line REgd (we particularly like the bone china botanical plates), which compliment the Baltic Shop’s art-driven product lines, contemporary prints, cards and jewellery. Sounds like one-stop-shop for Christmas shopping to us…

    This room may not be full of colour, but in no way does it lack interest; full of texture, simple shapes and the most pared back of palettes it’s the essence of laid back cool.
