So whilst shopping in John Lewis this weekend for some awesome new surround sound speakers for my TV-something else in the electrical section caught my eye and became the inspiration for todays post.
DAB radios- ok not the hippest of items known to man and Sharp N Chic fashion, however the design of these products really stood out to me and have now been made cool simply because of the really chic and fun way they had been created.
I know most people have iphones or smart phones that they can listen to music from- Thank you Apple- but Radio still is rather popular in the car and in the office when the iphone isnt plugged in- so these pretty cute radios can still come in handy. As an avid driver around the streets of London I’m often tuned into London’s biggest conversation-(LBC) which has become my favourite station! lots to learn and talk about and we all know I LOVE to talk so its very fitting!
However, I digress,
If you are planning to purchase a DAB radio- the clear advantage is the plethora of radio stations that become available to you then these cute designer sets are an option for you!
I had never heard of Orla Kiely before seeing this radio- but from it I find her and her designs to be pretty cool- its certainly a new take on the boring drab black plastic radio designs that we all once had- ideal for the young and the young-at-heart radio/ music lovers- small and discreet and fits in anywhere. It also has an Iphone and mp3 player doc so it works out to be very useful.
Orla has a homerange which this particular radio fits into quite well bright colourful and fun.
It was on sale in John Lewis for £149.00.
What do you think?
John Lewis had an unpecidented amout of the Roberts brand and these are really exciting and very funky indeed- a colour and design for every possible person.
I, of course, fell in love with the Union Jack- even though I’m not particularly patriotic I JUST LIKED the boldness of it! HA! OTHER Than that It does a great job of mixing vintage styling and the contemporary technology- it is a special edition version so if you do plan on buying it get it now as there are only limited numbers.
But there are loads of styles to choose from if this one is not for you- from pastels to patterns and more.
The brand of Roberts radio boasts 120 hours of battery life which is about five times more than competing models as well as multi station presets and a favourite button storage. Like the Orla it comes with the stereo line in for ipod and MP3 players and an LCD display.
