Vintage and designer homeware store Mason & Painter is selling its wares on London's South Bank

Until the end of March, Mason & Painter - whose recently opened emporium near Columbia Road Flower Market is the talk of east London - has a gorgeous pop-up shop at the Southbank Centre’s Terrace Shop. Collaborating with a group of other vintage and retro-inspired designers, it has brought together an eclectic array of fun homewares, from textiles to stationery.

‘It’s nice to work together,’ says Keith Stephenson, co-founder of design company Minimoderns, which is selling its bright new bed linens. ‘You can get so bogged down in the studio it’s good to get out and see what other people are doing.’

And it’s certainly an inspiring mix. We love the china cake stands based on old records by Michelle Mason (the Mason in Mason & Painter) and Fanny Shorter’s graphic textiles had us thinking back to the 1950s patterns of Lucienne Day. Another addition to our wish lists were Snowden Flood’s London mugs.

Head over now before it pops aways again…

Mason & Painter at the Southbank Centre Terrace Shop runs until 31st March. Open Monday to Friday, 10am-9pm; Saturday, 10am-8pm; Sunday, 12pm-8pm
