Førest London was set up a few years by Eva Coppens, an avid collector of Scandinavian and Northern European design. The brand specialises in mid-century furniture and lighting – think Danish mirrors made from Rosewood, armchairs crafted by Dutch designer Louis van Teeffelen, and brass floor lamps. The shop also collaborates with contemporary artists to put on exhibitions.


This home design shop sells a mixture of contemporary and vintage furniture and accessories. Products include beds, desks, lounge chairs, sofas, mirrors, kitchenware, shelving units and cabinets. There’s also a good selection of lighting for your bathroom, kitchen, floors, and ceilings.
