COVET…We’ll take it all

Covet, Ilkley, is one of those places you visit and then leave wishing you had a blank canvas of a home, in order to just start over and fill it with ev-er-y-thing!

Tucked away in a corner of the main car-park in Ilkley Town Centre, (at the back of Bettys!) it is a favourite lifestyle place of ours to visit for a few reasons.

COVET is hard to describe, it is very unique and almost undefinable.  It’s a place for people with eclectic style and that’s all part of Lorraine’s (owner) vision for the place, who has both amazing taste and clearly buys widely.

A rather a natty little shop that sells just about everything, it is a place you can pick up a great present, (for under a tenner), or an outlandishly huge feature mirror and spend a small fortune if you so choose.

From cutlery, crockery and glassware to bespoke rugs, bedding, chairs and lamps, you can buy things for the home; both useful and unusual.   And there’s storage solutions… lots of clever storage solutions.

Another reason we love COVET is because it also sells womens’ clothes, yet because you wouldn’t primarily think of it as a clothes shop, it has an under-the-radar feel about it…sort of like, ‘would you look at that, I just made a clothes purchase’… effortless!

What’s more, bespoke Fair Trade hand-made bags, jewellery, perfume, bath robes and scarves…

Finally, COVET’S effortless, understated yet highly-tasteful appeal extends to the customer experience walking round the shop; you can browse without feeling pressured in a very tactile environment.

COVET is a place to pop-in when you have both something and nothing to buy and every town needs one of those!
