31–35 Pitfield Street, Hoxton, London N1 6HB
There’s no shortage of tasteful designer stores in Shoreditch, but Pitfield feels more of an Aladdin’s Cave than most. You’ll find tall, brightly coloured lamps, bold ceramics, wallpaper with geometric designs, piles of colourful candles, vintage glassware and covetable handprinted fabrics. With a mixture of old and new pieces sourced through the owner’s travels around international markets, there’s a gorgeously eclectic and global feel to the place, with a glamorous Seventies twist. Plus you can break off from browsing to eat at the pretty café which occupies half of this restored office block.
