Aria, Barnsbury Hall, 2017
© Louis Little

Time Out says

Aria is located in an atmospheric space in Islington’s Barnsbury Hall. Many of the building’s original features have been restored and they now contrast beautifully with the über-modern lines of contemporary furniture and homewares. High-quality designer pieces are here, as are more unusual pieces, such as Fornasetti’s black and white, hand-painted Antipatico vase (£180) and the Bourgie table light by Ferruccio Laviani (£211). This mix, teamed with a very nice in-store café, makes Aria a pleasure to visit. Chairs are a speciality, with Starck and Arne Jacobsen well represented. Smaller stand-outs include a David Shrigley's cocaine and heroin pots (£79) and pretty Taika bowl (£23.50) that would make a great gift, especially if it had some of Aria’s very tempting selection of toiletries (Cowshed, Savon de Marseilles) nestled inside it.
