House of Hackney

This luxury interiors and fashion brand was founded by husband and wife team Javvy M Royle and Frieda Gormley in 2011. Since then, the company has become renowned for its William Morris-inspired designs – swirling patterns of floral and foliage are a common theme. The flagship store is an attraction in itself, housed in a 2,000 square foot townhouse where you can buy lamp shades, wallpaper, chairs, sofas and clothing.

Triangle Store

Pop into the light and airy Triangle Store on Chatsworth Road (only open Thursday to Sunday) for expertly crafted clay mugs, glass tumblers and spoons. As well as kitchen utensils, Triangle Store sells clothing, blankets and furniture – the stock changes weekly, so keep dropping in too see what’s available. Founded in 2013 by three friends, this snazzy shop bills itself as ‘a venture rooted in the belief of good design’.

The Hackney Draper

Just down the road from Triangle Store is this contemporary home drapery shop, The Hackney Draper, selling curtains, blinds, upholstery fabrics, cushions, rugs and textiles. The shop is part of a family business, which has been passed down through four generations working in the upholstery trade – so you’re in trustworthy hands. It offers goods in a variety of fabrics, including linens, velvets and wools.


This furniture shop sells products from leading European designers including Hay, Vitra, String, Carl Hansen, Gubi, Muuto, &Tradition and Secto Design. The shop is run by couple Andrew and Jane Tye, a furniture designer and sculptor respectively – their philosophy is to ‘choose carefully the things we live with and to keep them for a long time’. Shop here for stylish chairs, benches, tables, rugs, beds, lighting and kitchenware. Afterwards, head for a bite to eat at the Pavilion Café in nearby Victoria Park.

Pure White Lines

This shop is known for its decadent and weird one-off pieces, including taxidermy, antique mirrors, chandeliers and French hanging lanterns. Currently on sale are an industrial steel filing cabinet (£950), a vintage leather sofa (£1,850), buffalo horns (£650), ‘unicorn’ head (£4,950), and a huge collection of Morpho’s butterflies arranged in a 19th-century display case (£2,750).



Founded in 2012, the quaint shop in Stoke Newington specialises in products that are ‘well designed and built to last’, like porcelain crockery and melamine kitchenware. It also sells a range of goods for keeping your garden in check, including a copper watering can (£50), Spanish secateurs and a pruning knife (£23).

Redchurch Street

Redchurch Street, which overlaps the boundaries of the Hackney and Tower Hamlets boroughs, is renowned for its independent designer shops. Have a browse in Monologue, for good quality furniture, lighting and rugs. Also worth a look inside are Elementary, which specialises in synthetic furniture, and Labour and Wait, for its kitchenware (think Japanese kettles and enamel milk pans).
