Shopping, Home decor Islington

Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Joining its chichi neighbours, Folklore brings simple, modern homewares to Islington’s Upper Street. With its white painted floorboards and pale wooden shop fittings it has that ever-appealing Scandinavian feel. Owner, trained interior designer Danielle Reid, sources stock from across Europe, the US and London, and she has a knack of spotting fresh homegrown design talent. Recent finds include Dalston-based Naomi Paul, who makes pendular chrochet lampshades and Peckham designers Hendzel and Hunt, who use reclaimed wood in their beautiful bespoke furniture. The emphasis is on sustainable design, exemplified by the giant lampshades made from rolls of discarded cardboard boxes or papier mâché table lamps by Trash Me, £79. Looking for a smart, original house-warming gift? Start here.
