Home Design Objects


Tom Chapman, Matchesfashion founder, and Nicolas Pickaerts, its former e-commerce director, are behind Abask, the London-based home design objects shopping site. Just shy of its one-year anniversary, Abask is the online destination for some of the best brands in the design world. But what really sets Abask apart is the focus on craftsmanship, exclusive collaborations, and limited-edition pieces. The curation is fabulous!

  • Interesting and lovely objects that are not ubiquitous! Especially love the wooly mammoth handle knives… I am planning a similarly unique website for the US.

  • Preston, thank you for sharing. It is my goal in life to be a great gift giver and I love being introduced to unique sites like this. Call me crazy, but I’m already getting a head start on my holiday shopping…
    Also, my super talented interior designer friend just installed this wallpaper in her powder room. It’s reminiscent of the chutes and ladders. Chic and fun!
    Rebecca – Please send me an email to I would love to help with your site launch!

  • Dear Preston:

    Thank you for sleuthing out this excellent source and, most importantly, sharing it with us! I agree, this Schumacher pattern is very chic, Marcheline. I would love to use it somewhere, but was afraid guests would find it a bit dark. I will give things a rethink. Have a great weekend, all! Tracey

  • Serpents make me recoil – sorry!
    But Abask is a wonderful source to have on file for the reasons stated in preceding posts.
    Another example of your great sleuthing, Preston. : )
