10 Interiors Shops Worth Travelling To
Couverture & The Garbstore
This creative concept store was launched by Emily Dyson and Ian Paley in 2008. In a three-storey period townhouse in Notting Hill, amid some excellent fashion, you’ll find the pair’s eclectic edit of global homeware brands, with a focus on emerging and independent names.
A decade ago, creative director Amanda Brooks swapped her fast-paced New York fashion life for country living, embracing quintessential English interiors in her Oxfordshire farmhouse. Half a decade ago, she opened arguably the prettiest shop in the Cotswolds: a curated ‘country store’ with items for your closet and your home.
Libs Lewis is a magpie at heart. Having started a house clearance business at 21, she opened a shop to sell her finds. She now runs Domestic Science, which has three Cotswold locations and stocks the latest trends as well as vintage pieces.
Connaught Village’s Faeger Shop was born out of a sister interior design studio. It focuses on sustainable products for the home, inspired by the English countryside and quintessential (slightly kitsch) British living. Look out for seasonal launches in collaboration with makers and artists.
At Freight, Adele and Helene design goods that are manufactured in the UK wherever possible. Their careful use of materials brings beauty to everyday household items which will last well and wear even better.
This year, Lisa Donnelly and Sinead Moore opened a store in Ranelagh, Dublin, that brings together Sinead’s interior design expertise and Lisa’s stylist’s flair for detail. Their design philosophy is simple: to create beautiful yet practical interiors that layer fabric, objects, furnishing, lighting and colour in fresh ways.
Following a challenging 2020 in the events industry, Anna McGregor and Lotte Martin re-evaluate their careers and opened LAMP/LDN. The aim is to create beautiful spaces mindfully, so you can shop for luxury in a conscious way.
Owner Susan Doherty has made Lifestory a constantly evolving destination for lovers of Scandinavian design and lifestyle. Showcasing products that match beauty to function, she has brought the perfect combination of lifestyle store and coffee bar to the Scottish capital. Head in to browse shelves that display everything from ceramics to cushions.
Alexa and Eduardo chose the beautiful East Sussex town of Rye for Rae. Specialising in rustic vintage homeware, hand selected from the UK and Europe, its core range is complemented with modern independent makers’ collections.
Beautiful vintage baskets and bags are the stock in trade of Columbia Road’s Straw London, which now sells thoughtfully chosen items for the garden, for the kitchen and for you – there’s clothing and jewellery as well as homeware. We love the wavy terracotta collection, which looks as good inside as out.
