KENT & LONDON is a vibrant and exciting interior design showroom in the heart of bustling Shoreditch. As well as our own range of custom made furniture and kitchens, we showcase designs from incredible producers - from independent designers to established brands exporting globally.
Not only is FLOOR_STORY, East London's friendliest rug dealer, but also a maker of beautiful rugs with an eye on craft and unique design. The showroom at Kent and London, is home to hand-made rugs that prove an off-beat approach to rug design creates the very best results.
Through the championing of young design talent and collaborations with established stars, they’ve built a unique and sometimes left field collection of beautifully made rugs. Standing alongside discoveries made on their regular trips as well as a series of in-house designs, at FLOOR_STORY you'll find rugs that celebrate diversity and creativity.

PLANK Hardware all started with a couple of old scaffolding boards and a new flat in need of an urgent renovation. With a limited budget to work with Plank Hardware founders Annie Aveyard and Thomas Revill wanted to make as much as they could themselves. Thus sparked the original Plank Hardware product range, which has been growing ever since.
Ateliers Zelij was founded by Delphine Laporte & Samir Mazer at the end of the 90s to bring to life and reinvent a culture through zellige. Their sensitivity and their training as an industrial designer then led them to other materials: cement tiles, and recently stone and terrazzo.
Carefully selected raw materials and respect for ancestral manufacturing techniques give Ateliers Zelij products a unique and timeless finish. Ateliers Zelij strongly believe in maintaining a close relationship with manufacturing workshops, overseeing production processes, and ensuring premium quality control.

NedevDesign is a family run startup created by a husband, a wife and a baby. For us working on unique projects is an intimate process. Before deciding on shape and material, we think about how a design will be used and where it will be placed. We are experienced and specialising in designing, manufacturing, delivering and fitting of bespoke concrete countertops and polished concrete products for interior and exterior. We produce kitchen and bathroom worktops, splash-backs, tiles and furniture in London, UK. Completely opposed to an industrial approach, we guide our products as if they are living things. We specialise in manufacturing of high quality silicone rubber molds, engineered concrete casts, graphic design and 3d printing.
Aesthetic sustainability is key to all of our products. In an effort to create furniture that will last a lifetime, we have taken no shortcuts. HANDVÄRK work with genuine marble, solid brass and leather – materials that will only become more beautiful over time. These materials are worked with care and dedication to embody the simplicity and applicability of their design. Design that above all stays true to the Nordic DNA that imbues HANDVÄRK.
“Sklo” is the Czech word for “glass”. The heart of all the SkLO collections is handblown glass, and we work exclusively within the Czech glassblowing tradition to produce their glass.
The idea of Craft is their focus. The SkLO philosophy celebrates old traditions, but our emphasis is on design and process over form or decoration. SkLO designs show restraint, to achieve the simplest expression of the idea, but without sacrificing our most important consideration in all we do – beauty.
New Works presents a collection at the intersection between old and new. Light and dark. Design and art. Our work pays homage to the strong Scandinavian history of craftsmanship and materiality, whilst challenging the contemporary forms of today. We collaborate with an international group of renowned designers and artists, who display a matching fascination with sculptural forms and honest materials.
Made in Denmark - good craftsmanship, was an important part of the foundation established in the 50s about the fairy tale concept of Danish Modern - and the many furniture, design and lamp classics from the great masters such as Wegner, Mogensen, Jacobsen, PH and Kaare Klint and more.
Danish Design 2020 is without a doubt one of Denmark's strongest brands, but Made in Denmark is definitely not a factor today - at least not for very many - there are still a small handful left.
LE KLINT has been manufacturing lamps in Odense since 1943 - and we still do, but it is also one of Denmark's "best kept secrets". It is a completely conscious choice that we have maintained our production in Denmark, and it is a very important part of our DNA.
