Abigail Ahern Flowers
196 Tottenham Court Rd., Bloomsbury
Faux flowers get a bad rep, but in the hands of designer Abigail Ahern they can add mood, beauty, and texture to a room. She first started her pro-faux crusade at her Islington shop, and it quickly caught on to the point that Heal's, the home emporium, has given Abigail a stand-alone "florist" shop. You'll find endless fake varieties—from ferns to hydrangeas, to ridiculously cute moss dog sculptures—another quirky Ahern signature.
Absolute Flowers and Home
12 - 14 Clifton Road, Maida Vale
Hayley Newstead's shop is a haven for flower and design enthusiasts alike. While one half of the shop is a bustling florist overflowing with AFH's signature feminine and elegant arrangements for delivery across the city, the other is filled with Hayley's exquisite, modern and mid-century finds for the home. Whether for flowers or furniture, Hayley has the most amazing eye for home decor, making this one of our firm favorites for gifts floral and otherwise.
Alex Eagle
6-10 Lexington St., Soho
Alex Eagle's eponymous concept store has moved from its Knightsbridge townhouse local to an expansive loft space in Soho. The owner stocks hard-to-find brands like Isa Arfen, Lemaire, and Protagonist mixed in with homewares by hip design studios like Makers & Brothers. With the odd Jean Prouvé stool or Alex Eagle collaboration—many are her takes on classic heritage brands like Swaine-Adeney—dotted here and there, this shop is always packed with discoveries.
