I was out propping last week and stopped by one of my favourite shops in London Atelier Abigail Ahern – for me it epitomizes quirky and cool Britannia. A lot of the good design stores in London stock much of the same thing – but Abigail Ahern seems to have a monopoly on the oversized and eclectic produce not seen in any other store. From neon lighting in the silhouettes of traditional lampstands to oversized sculptural chain links…she sources the beautiful and the fantastical. Abigail is a stylist and interior design who has certainly forged her own path with her unique style. See Abigail’s home at Design Sponge…although i believe this is a recent re-style as her previously styled home was originally featured in Elle Decoration a few years ago.

I love her store in Islington, its so dark and dramatic yet cosy – i would imagine it would be cool on a summers day and snug on a wet windy one!
I love how everything seems to float in a surreal fashion in the darkness of the store! My favourite is definitely the neon three dimensional floor candelabra which is custom made and retails at £2.950.
