shop folklore

by Grace Bonney

Folklore is a beautiful new independent design shop that opened in Islington, London. In an age where it can be tempting to only shop online, I love finding new shops that embrace a brick and mortar location, especially when they make it so gorgeous inside. Folklore focuses on “mindful design” for home and living, and their collection reflects the owners’ interest in careful editing. Their shop is full of beautifully designed basics that are handcrafted and will last for years to come. Whether you’re looking for hand-built tables or beautiful kitchen linens, their shop (both online and in-person) has some great options. Click here to check them out online. Thanks to Danielle for the tip! xo, grace
