Stylist and author Emily Chalmers’s Redchurch Street boutique is a treasure trove of cool interiors ideas, vintage finds and unusual decorative pieces. Think glossy French industrial lamps, battered leather suitcases, stunning vintage teapots, tiny cameo brooches, big black ornamental crows, woollen knitted dog toys, light-reactive singing birds and gold angel wings for decorating candles. From its whitewashed walls to its hotchpotch display cabinets, Caravan showcases its owner’s magpie tendencies and eye for detail. A browsing ground for interior designers, gift-hunters, party planners and vintage aficionados, Caravan is bursting with ideas and fantastically offbeat takes on style and design. Why bother with pricey interior designers and style tomes when all the benefits of a stylist’s keen eye are here for the taking?
Caravan is number 58 in our list of the 100 best shops in London.
