Apart from the marvellous delights of Muji, UK-based fans of pared back far eastern design have been poorly served in the past, but no longer! Specialising in craft-based home products that are predominantly sourced in Japan and Taiwan, the wonderful Native & Co is an undiscovered treasure in London’s Notting Hill.
Founded by product designers, Taiwan born Sharon Jo-Yun Hung and British-Japanese Chris Yoshiro Green, the shop combines artisan pieces from small suppliers, specialist workshops and local Japanese and Taiwanese craftsmen. The carefully edited collections that span everything from dining and kitchen to textiles and accessories are made up of simple pieces with subtle details.
