a gem in the city: furniture workshop “unto this last”

I had the unexpected pleasure this weekend to have a few hours to myself strolling around Shoreditch. I haven’t been to that area of the city for a long time and it was wonderful being back and rediscovering all those quiet streets hidden behind the main roads, the quaint independent stores, designer workshops and galleries and small delightful cafés and delis. It was refreshing and inspiring to not come across a single high strew chain for a couple of hours.

In Brick Lane I found my personal gem of the day: a small furniture open workshop called “Unto this last”. Driven by the vision to create a place where efficiency meets elegance, this place locally designs, manufactures and sells beautiful furniture and accessories.

The Ply Table on display caught my eye the moment I walked in, and is now a firm favourite should we ever decide to replace our current dining table.

At home, I discovered this wonderful bed on the shop’s website which will for sure replace our son’s toddler bed in the next few months. There is matching underbed storage available, too.

Puts a smile on my face just thinking of those beautiful pieces. And you should touch them: smooth as silk, what a delight.
