Retrouvius: London Reclamation & Design Store



It's probably a good thing we have limited space in our London property. Otherwise I would be seriously tempted to stalk (and possibly hoard) so many interesting, one-off pieces from design shop Retrouvius.

Reclamation is what Retrouvius does best. And according to their website, the ever-changing stock is "determined by the serendipity of salvage, evolving fashion, tastes, desires, the space available in our warehouse, and more than a bit of luck." There are some really great big-name design brands these days, but there's something so special and refreshing about throwing in a unique, one-off piece or two...  Retrouvius is perfect for the latter. (In fact, I'm keeping my eyes peeled for an armchair!)

If you live in London, you can visit their showroom in Kensal Rise. Or you can keep an eye on stock via their website.

(I learned about Retrouvius via the director of this building company. A client had used reclaimed mosaic tiles in their kitchen!)
