Furniture shops in London

Aladdin's Cave

Shopping Home decor Lewisham
South-east London's premier treasure trove of furniture is easy to spot from the road - the antiques overflowing into the street are a slight giveaway. Inside, there's a variety of chandeliers, dressers, wing-backed chairs and stacks upon stacks of paintings and prints in mismatched frames. Even if you don't buy anything, it's a great place to get lost for a couple of hours. 
72 Loampit Hill, SE13 7SX

Alfie's Antique Market

Shopping Markets and fairs Marylebone
At Alfies Antique Market your vintage handbag comes with a few words about its provenance, and a spot of gentle hunting is often rewarded with a genuinely rare piece of furniture. A rambling network of four floors, the indoor market houses some clued-up sellers providing a discerning selection of jewellery, clothing, homeware and decorative items predominantly from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
13-25 Church Street, NW8 8DT

Crystal Palace Antique & Modern

Shopping Crystal Palace
There's around 20 dealers selling across four storeys at this warehouse-style showroom. Each floor has its own character, and styles range from mid-century furniture and lighting to Victorian antiques. 
Imperial House, Jasper Rd, London, SE19 1SJ
Decoratum
Decoratum

Decoratum

Marylebone
A stone's throw from Regent's Park, Decoratum is more art gallery than a furniture store, with price tags to match. It showcases some of the best original furniture from the '50s right through to present day, and is a favourite among interior designers and private collectors. Expect modern classics and iconic design among some downright bizarre stuff. 
31-33 Church St, London, NW8 8ES

Heal's

Shopping Home decor Tottenham Court Road
Heal's may be the grand old dame of interiors stores, but its happy combination of excellent sourcing, helpful staff and a layout that's constantly being reinvented means it manages to stay relevant. Find new designers alongside established names like Eames, Vitra and Wegner.
196 Tottenham Court Road, London, W1T 7LQ

Labour and Wait

Shopping Home decor Shoreditch
Function and quality are the driving forces at Labour and Wait, where functional domestic goods are displayed with beautiful simplicity. Furniture-wise, it goes big on enamel goods, from lampshades to teapots - right down to the kitchen sink (seriously). They have a strong link with Japan too (that's where their fourth shop is based) so hard-to-find Japanese accessories and clothing also line the shelves. 
Shoreditch, Bethnal Green and Bermondsey.

Little Paris

Shopping Home decor Crouch End and Hornsey
A Francophile's delight. Little Paris's buyers hop over the Channel every three weeks to bring you vintage French posters, battered signage and ephemera. The showroom at the back has some quirkier items including the front grille of a classic Citroën Avant and medical posters from the 1950s. There are larger furniture items too, from beautiful wooden cabinets to sandblasted metal pieces.
39 Park Road, London, N8 8TE

Pentreath & Hall

Shopping Home decor Bloomsbury
It's always a tight squeeze in this petite boutique just off Lamb's Conduit Street. But despite its diminutive scale, there's plenty packed in at Pentreath, from kitchenware and stationery to cushions and candles. True, this place is an ideal gift destination, but as you're buying your mate an antique teapot, you just might find yourself stocking up on those hand-made linen teatowels you definitely need.
17 Rugby Street, London, WC1N 3QT

Pitfield London

Shopping Home decor Shoreditch
Stylish and accessible interiors shop Pitfield London is spread across a big double-fronted former office block, and is the retail arm of celebrated interior designer Shaun Clarkson. Clarkson and business partner Paul Brewster fill the space with pieces procured at home and abroad - the resourceful pair travel every month and raid local markets and manufacturers.
31-35 Pitfield Street, London, N1 6HB

Retrouvius

Shopping Vintage shops Kensal Green
In the secret address book of many interior designers, Retrouvius is a salvage shop that specialises in sourcing quirky reclaimed goods. A batch of 50 French school chairs (£39 each, with discounts for bulk buys), a perfectly preserved lute, and a painted timber surveyor's pole were all available at last visit.

1016 Harrow Rd, Kensal Green, NW10 5NS
