What are the best Design Shops in London? You have plenty of choices, but if you are visiting London in September for the London Design Festival, then we strongly recommend you stop by these five amazing design shops!
Designers Guild was established in 1970 by brother and sister, Trisha Guild and Simon Jeffreys. Their range of luxury designs, fabrics, wallcoverings and bed and bath collections are available worldwide but their UK flagship store is situated in Kensington. Adress – 265-277 King’s Road, SW3 5EN
When Zeev Aram opened his first showroom in 1964, the Londoners that walked past the shop front didn’t know what had hit them. Today the shop features a huge range of stunning design pieces, from chairs and tables, to lamps and storage. There is even a whole floor of the shop dedicated to new work by designers that are still relatively unknown, as helping talented designers is something Aram has always deemed vital. Adress – 110 Drury Lane, WC2B 5SG.
The Andrew Martin shop is an explosion of different cultures, decades and nostalgia. Their design items are inspired by all three, and pieces on display have an unusual emotive power to them. Stepping inside you will see a range of unusual objects and things you wouldn’t expect to see in an interior design shop, such as giant leather animals, some taller than six foot. Nothing on show is subtle – if you are after a few statement pieces this is the place for you. Adress: 198-200 Walton St, SW3 2JL
Specialising in Scandinavian Modernism, Skandium has a range of unique designs on sale. All understated and chic, Skandium stocks furniture, ceramics, lighting and glass. Items are made to be durable and versatile, and all are laid out neatly in the shop. Skandium shows how cutting-edge design can work in your home. Adress: 86 Marylebone High St, W1U 4QS.
A child’s dream come true. Molly Meg is an independent children’s design store offering an adorable selection of furniture, home decoration, vintage style toys, gifts and party supplies. Although established since 2009, their first permanent store opened in October 2016. Adress: 11 Essex Rd, N1 2SL;
