5 Chatsworth Rd., Hackney
Beautifully arranged and sourced by Angela Maynard, an ex-product developer, this is a London green-thumb's dream with ceramics in muted tones, handmade woven baskets, all the succulents you could dream of, and hard-to-find skincare brands. Botany hosts mini gallery openings in the space, too, which is just another great excuse to head there more often.
79a Wilton Way, Hackney
Momosan, a teensy, whitewashed space a few doors down from Violet Cakes on the up-and-coming Wilton Way, is a collection of beautiful, useful objects owner Momoko Mizutani has found on her travels. While there is a definite Japanese bent to the look and feel of the delicate glassware, quirky ceramics, and home-y odds and ends, these are her finds from friends across the world. Ceramic mugs by LA artist Peter Shire, London-based Jochen Holz' delicate colorblock glassware, Japanese incense, and more: It's a hodge podge, but a painstakingly edited one—and at great prices—making this an ideal gifting destination.
