Two weeks ago I attended the Amara Interior Blog Awards 19 event that took place in London, in the beautiful setting of One Marylebone. One Marylebone is a former Anglican church built in 1826 and today transformed into a location weddings venue and location for events.
Also this year I got into the finals of the Awards in the Best Written Blog category: I did not win but being in the final among the 5 blogs best written at international level was a great achievement for me and I am really happy.
I spent a few days in London and took the opportunity to visit the district of Shoreditch, one of the most vibrant neighborhoods in the city. Among the many fashion shops there are also beautiful design stores. I decided to prepare a guide to my favorite design shops in Shoreditch, London.
Monologue is a truly unique interior design shop. It is a contemporary concept store founded by interior designer Pavel Klimczack and focuses mainly on conceptual design and emerging designers
All accessories and furniture are selected with extreme care, making the shop one of the best options for design lovers.
Along with the creations of emerging designers, we also find a selection of products of the coolest brands in contemporary design, such as CC-tapis, Gebruder Thonet, Tacchini, Arflex or Ferm Living.
93 Redchurch St, Shoreditch, London E2 7DJ.
A concept store where the mix of selected products is really interesting, it is definitely worth a visit.
Opened in 2007, Goodhood is a multi-brand store selling over 200 brands including menswear, womenswear, footwear, lifestyle, cosmetics and design accessories. The idea with which the founders select the products is that of an effortless lifestyle that redefines the idea of luxury.
Among the fashion brands we find for example Pendleton, Norse Projects, Our Legacy, Wood Wood, Stussy, Vans and Doctor Martins, Aesop and Marvin among cosmetics and for design we find a selection of products by Ferm Living, Nomess, Hay, Klippan, Kinto, Doiy Design and many others.

LABOUR AND WAIT
Labor and Wait was opened in 2000 and offers “functional and timeless products for everyday life“.
The store is in fact characterized by a careful selection of products that celebrate functional design and are characterized by the usefulness and quality of the objects.
The offer ranges from products for the kitchen, such as Bialetti coffee makers, to bathroom products. There are also gardening products, books, clothing and accessories.

Located in what used to be an old mattress factory, SCP Shoreditch has since been transformed into one of the most interesting and supplied design shops. The store is very large and arranged on two floors and offers furniture, home accessories and lamps. More than 200 brands are sold, including some of the most important brands in the contemporary design scene, such as & Tradition, Cappellini, Gubi, Hay, Kartell, Menu, Carl Hansen and DCW éditions.
Scp has also created its own brand collaborating with important designers such as Donna Wilson, Piet Hein Eek and Jasper Morrison.

If you go to Shoredich you can’t miss the famous BOXPARK. Boxpark Shoreditch was inaugurated in 2011 as the first pop-up mall in the world. It is built entirely with reused containers that have been specially adapted. On the upper floor, there are small take-away restaurants while on the ground floor there are small shops and galleries.
2-10 Bethnal Green Rd, Hackney, London E1 6GY, Regno Unito
Among the various shops in the Boxpark, I particularly liked Decorum and Paper Smiths.
Decorum is a small online boutique that sells gifts and accessories for the home and garden. The style is an eclectic mix of vintage, modern and contemporary.
An eclectic collection of stationery products such as notebooks, diaries, sketch pads, artist pencils, notes from many international brands and designers.
In the Shoreditch district you will not only find multi-brand stores but also showrooms such as the English brands Hem and House of Hackney.
