THE NEW CURIOSITY SHOP

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Style | News -

In­spired by LA’S new wave of gen­eral stores – where you might find a scented can­dle, a hand carved spoon and a per­fect pair of jeans all in the same space – Florence Dixon (right, who hap­pens to be de­sign hero Tom Dixon’s daugh­ter) and her mother Clau­dia Nella de­cided to bring that ver­sa­til­ity to Brighton and set up shop in North Laine. At the Tidy Street Gen­eral Store, they gather small-batch goods with an eye for crafts­man­ship and de­sign. There are glasses from Morocco (above, from £1.95 for an espresso glass), speck­led enam­el­ware from Crow Canyon Home (top right, from £6 for a spoon), sweets from Fat­ties Bak­ery in Lon­don, hand­made quilts from House of Quinn in Brighton, jack­ets from Ve­tra – the her­itage French work­wear brand that sup­plied the French Re­sis­tance dur­ing WWII – and more. It’s a one-stop shop for the home, pantry and wardrobe. And for those in need of pam­per­ing, Tidy Street is soon to open a treat­ment room for cus­tomers to ex­pe­ri­ence the joys of the de Mamiel skin­care range (tidys­treet­store.com).
