Top 5: Interior Design Shops

  • Labour & Wait, Shoreditch

    85 Redchurch St, E2 7DJ

    This place is filled with functional pieces that you didn’t know you needed until you walked in. Think utilitarian homeware with a retro vibe – lots of enamel, classic italian soaps, and they also dabble in authentic workwear.

  • SCP, Shoreditch

    135-139 Curtain Road, EC2A 3BX

    You might think it’s another product of the modern furniture trend sweeping East London, but SCP has been going since 1985 and isn’t just a source-and-sell affair, they manufacture their own modern classics as well as selling classic vintage pieces.

  • The Cloth Shop, Notting Hill

    290 Portobello Road, W10 5TE

    The clue is in the name: this is the place for all of your upholstery needs. They specialise in linens and natural fabrics, and can advise you on pretty much ANYTHING fabric-related. Whilst you’re searching for your perfect material, make sure you check out their hand-picked selection of antiques and homeware too.

  • Darkroom, Islington

    Online or at their pop-up shop

    This black-walled design store has made a name for itself as a purveyor of all things bold. Graphic prints, geometric shapes and bright colours are the norm here. No chance of walking out with something that will fade into the background.

  • Atelier Abigal Ahern, Islington

    12-14 Essex Road, N1 8LN

    Dark, inky hues, eclectic mix-and-match pieces, and the best faux flowers money can buy – this is what Aterlier Abigail Ahern is about. It’s the perfect place to pick up one of those pieces that feels like you’ve had it for years but still looks great.
