The offerings are more than sweet at The Lollipop Shoppe: they’re also useful, comfortable, and long lasting.
The warehouse-like space, located in Old Spitalfields Market, is filled with contemporary furniture and home accessories from established and emerging designers. A danger zone for design junkies, the emporium spans two floors and showcases a range of delightful pieces that will make your house a home — from a cheeky bricks-and-mortar armchair to a brightly hued geometric sculpture.
Owners Marco and Siobhan di Rienzo first set up shop three years ago in Brighton. Their vision has always been the same: combining stalwart favourites like Eames and Marimekko with under-the-radar names like Scandinavian Muuto and Alvar Aalto. Each piece is carefully selected and thought out. They’re not catering to ordinary suckers.
The Lollipop Shoppe, 10 Lamb Street, Old Spitalfields Market, E1 6EA (020 7655 4540 or thelollipopshoppe.co.uk), £3-£10,000.
