Brits found to be bringing Love Island vibes into their interiors

Posted: 26th Jul 2019

Where would we be without Love Island in our lives?

It's been a constant companion over the last few weeks, providing us with a never-ending stream of drama. And, as we wait to find out who gets crowned the winner, eBay UK has reported a massive increase in the searches for Love Island inspired décor and accessories, as Brits look for ways to inject some island life into their interiors, and with it, let the villa live on in our hearts and homes.

Of course, the one item we're not even remotely surprised to hear about is the popularity of the Love Island water bottle. There's been a huge 587 per cent increase in searches since the beginning of the latest series, as we look to ensure we're staying hydrated in the most stylish way possible.

Following hot on its heels was the fire pit. After all, does it even count as drama if it's not properly discussed around a fire pit? This was searched for an average of 4,802 times each day, while AstroTurf was looked for 5,139 times.

There was also a rise in flamingo drinking glasses, which has risen by 76 per cent since Love Island arrived on our screens and averaged a total of 275 searches each day.

There are also other classic parts of the villa that we are unable to resist bringing in - this includes bean bags, bright cushions and even some naughty neon signs, which rose to a massive 21,710 searches every day. There was also a 122 per cent increase on 'Love Island decor' too.

Chris Gardner, Head of Home and Garden Trading, "It’s been a Summer of Love so far, all kick started by the return of the villa and, as predicted, Brits have once again gone absolutely bonkers for Love Island."

"The villa has a distinctive and fresh, fun look, so it’s only understandable that people would want to bring that villa feel into their homes too and with the huge product selection on eBay, every Love Island lover can get the look they want."
