We have some truly inspiring shops in Barnes and one of our favourites is Barbed. They invite you to ‘journey into outer space’, but we’re not talking about astronauts and space rockets – this is about using your imagination. The outer space they invite you to journey into is… your garden!

BarbedBarbed sells a selection of gorgeous contemporary outdoor furnishings and works of art. So if you want to transform your garden into a wonderful place to explore for you and your children, this is a good place to start. You can pick up some amazing garden furniture to get your kids eating al fresco; there’s a range of stunning sunshades to keep you all cool; and there are some brilliant little bird houses so the children can watch the birds nesting.

The large showroom is fun to look around and displays the best and most beautiful outdoor furniture, assembled from some of the most creative and innovative designers from around the world. They also specialise in exterior sculpture and art as well as selling accessories and decorative objects that will enhance your home, inside or outside.

Barbed can be found at 3 Liffords Place, off Barnes High Street, Barnes Sw13 9LR. It is open from Monday to Saturday between 10.00am-5.30pm and on Sundays from 12.00-5.00pm.
