What To Buy For Your Home From 2019’s Most Fashionable Holiday Destinations


We've all been there - you're having such a great summer holiday that you want a souvenir to bring home with you. You've long since learnt that the kaftans and overpriced linen tunics that seem a good idea at the time never work as well when back in the UK, so investing in something for our home seems more sensible. But where do you start? Which countries specialise in which interior must-haves? Where should you buy ceramics, and where is best for cushions or rattan mats? We spoke to homewares maestro, Lisa Mehydene, the founder of online interiors destination edit58, to find out what you should take home from 2019's most fashionable holiday destinations.

Istanbul: Anatolian rugs


Another destination in which to indulge in a spot of rug (or ‘carpet’) shopping. At edit58, we stock beautiful Turkish rugs by heirloom brand Miniknots which are designed by owner Ulgen Semerci and woven in Turkey. Ulgen’s father owns a rug shop in The Grand Bazaar, Istanbul, and has done so for the past 40 years. There’s nothing he doesn’t know about rugs. Make it your first port of call.”
