From its beginnings as a self-funded project aimed at curating the finest clothing and objects from around the world, Goodhood has grown to incorporate an online store and a split-level flagship shop in London’s Shoreditch that sells a mix of fashion and homeware. Pop in to browse the products before relaxing at the in-store cafe, which was launched in collaboration with Australian chef Brett Redman.

The ground floor of I Gigi general store and cafe in Hove, East Sussex, is filled with furniture and home accessories that are sourced, designed and manufactured by owners Alex Legendre and Zoë Ellison. The duo only sell things that they would happily have in their own homes, which means a combination of locally made furniture and restored antiques, alongside Scandi, French, Indian and British finds. Head upstairs for a light bite, lunch or afternoon tea.

A real treasure trove of vintage stock, colourful homeware, gardening accessories, gifts and – of course – a bustling coffee shop, Pedlars is a great West London spot. The cafe serves light lunch dishes and a selection of cakes and pastries.
