With its old-fashioned window, Floral Hall is a constant in Crouch End, its shop floor creaking with faded French grandeur. Gilt overmantel mirrors may not be in top-notch nick but, with prices starting from around £300, they are ideal for those in search of the battered look – and a bargain. Early 20th-century chandeliers range from £250 to £2,000 and there’s normally some nice furniture pieces too – an art deco bedside table, say, or a pair of French café chairs, as well as a good range of original lamps. Call before visiting in August as, in true French style, the shop usually closes.
