When Zeev Aram opened his first showroom in 1964, the Londoners that walked past the shop front didn’t know what had hit them. Today the shop features a huge range of stunning design pieces, from chairs and tables, to lamps and storage. There is even a whole floor of the shop dedicated to new work by designers that are still relatively unknown, as helping talented designers is something Aram has always deemed vital. Adress – 110 Drury Lane, WC2B 5SG.
The Andrew Martin shop is an explosion of different cultures, decades and nostalgia. Their design items are inspired by all three, and pieces on display have an unusual emotive power to them.

Nothing on show is subtle – if you are after a few statement pieces this is the place for you. Adress: 198-200 Walton St, SW3 2JL
