I have been meaning to go into Folklore for a while now (they opened in June 2012), and I finally got around to having a peek around last week. I loved it!
Folklore is an independent store that teams up with designers to bring us carefully curated designs for home and life that are made to last. Their ethos is simple: "Craftsmenship, quality, simplicity, durability".
Folklore’s product range includes homewares, furniture, lighting, art and lifestyle goods, all made with a concern for the environment.
With its white painted wooden floorboards the shop has a calm scandinavian feel. If you are looking for a gift for someone (or yourself), it is a great place to start. Alternatively, you could visit their online shop.
193 Upper Street, Islington, London N1 1RQ (0207 354 9333)
Open: Tuesday – Sunday, 11am – 6pm
