Appley Hoare is a very special, very rustic chic store on Pimlico Road in London and one of the most beautiful shops I have ever entered. Owned by Appley and her daughter Zoe, the shop specializes in delightfully timeworn antiques from the 18th and 19th centuries which are casually but immaculately displayed with loads of wit and RC charm. This is the kind of store that transports you to the peaceful and eclectic countryside where 19th century Louis XV chairs happily dance with 18th century Swedish chests. You can visit Appley Hoare on the web at www.appleyhoare.com. But the best way to have an out of body rustic chic experience is to visit Appley and Zoe in their shop.
