Feel more than a little bit ashamed at heading to Ikea in your eco-chic People Tree dress and fairtrade and fabulous MADE necklace to kit out your new pad? Naughty eco-ista. Well stop right there missy, turn around and head to awesome up-cycled furniture shop 37 Old London Road in Kingston. Stuffed full of quirky pieces and run by the brilliantly-named Denny and Dazzle, the shop looks as good as your home will, having recently been given a makeover by Mary Queen of Shops.
Vintage dressers and re-worked flower patterned chairs jostle for space with cute cushions and affordable artwork. If, for some unfathomable reason, they don’t have what you are looking for their sourcing service will track it down and bespoke it up however your heart desires. So you and your environmentally-aware conscience will sleep easy at night in your new up-cycled bed.
