A famous poet once said: ‘Tired of London, tired of life’. There’s no place in the world with such a creative buzz as the UK capital. That makes London the ideal place for hotspotting. Where to eat, where to sleep, where to shop? Londonista An Bogaerts leads the way.

House of Hackney

Shoreditch

What? When entering the award winning flagship store of the House of Hackney brand, I tend to feel a little bit dull. Beige walls and taupe furniture just isn’t enough for Frieda Gromley and Javvy Royle. The couple re-invents the British pattern tradition of Laura Ashley or Liberty and brings it to a whole new contemporary level. The combination of different bold prints and experimental patterns does not want you to leave the shop screaming. To the contrary, one tends to wonder: could I pull this off in my own home too?

Look? A lot of the House of Hackney prints are inspired by British nature. But that’s not the only link with the brand’s homeland. Every single piece is produced as nearby as possible. The sofa’s are made in Long Eaton, the ceramics in Stoke-on-Trent, the wallpaper in Loughborough and the velvet in Lancaster.

What else? Keep a close eye on this brand because from time to time they do very interesting collabs with brands like Puma, Eastpak, Asos and Opening Ceremony. When visiting this fantastic flagship store, bare in mind that the Ace Hotel is just across the street, same thing for Dishoom.

Info? Mon to Sat from 10am to 7pm, Sun from 11am to 5pm
