Wouldn’t You Though?

Ok, I might actually need a beach house now to go with this new radio….

PURE Pop Maxi by Mini Moderns, ‘Whitby,’ £109.99

 

I’m one of those people who has the radio on all the time¸and I do like it when the radio itself looks a bit more interesting than the usual black or silver box with a grille and a few buttons.  PURE – based in Kings Langley, don’t you know – have a track record in producing good-to-look-at, as well as listen to, radios.  I just love my rather-battered-now Orla Kiely one, and they recently produced a Rob Ryan one, too, that is very lovely.

Their latest release – their Pop Midi and Maxi radios, sporting a very summery ‘Whitby’ design from London-based designers Mini Moderns – carrys that tradition on very nicely, thank you.

PURE’s Pop range, already award-winners, are DAB and FM radios, but they will also stream via Bluetooth (handy for all that stuff on your phone or your laptop).  You can get them online at PURE or Mini Moderns, or you can pop to John Lewis (click and collect, anyone?).

PURE Pop Midi by Mini Moderns, ‘Whitby,’ £89.99

I just love the design, though.  It’s all very nautical and jaunty, and makes me want to be by the seaside with an ice cream and the promise of fish and chips for tea.
