You need to know about Pylones!

About a month ago I was invited to the opening of a quirky new shop in the Waterfront called Pylones (Americans pronounce the name “pie-lone-es” however the French pronunciation is “pee-lone”). I wasn’t quite sure what to expect as I’d never heard of this brand before but I’m so glad I went along – it was such a fun, colourful space that really brightened up my day!

I went back again about a week later to take a few photos of their wonderful range of products – unfortunately I didn’t quite have the camera settings correct so the pics all have a bit of a yellow tinge to them but I don’t have time to go back again or edit these ones so I thought I’d share them with you anyway – it will give you a good idea of what you need to know about Pylones and you can schedule a visit or just pop past the next time you’re in the Waterfront.

If you are looking for hip and quirky products, well-designed gifts and crazily cheerful colourful accessories or items for your home or office you NEED to get to this one of kind store…
