We find the Anglophile design trend absolutely smashing. The British Union Jack is popping up just about everywhere, so much so, the Union Jack is the New Black, says Design Sponge. And with the Olympic Games being held in London this year, we’ll bet you tea and crumpets this trend will be colonizing the US for more than a few fortnights’ time.
Here are a few pieces that will quickly put some of Dear Old Blighty in your royal palace.
