Kensington Church Street is a great place to start when shopping abroad for clients. I started at the fabulous Robert Kime and walked downhill to Kensington High Street.
Robert Kime sells wonderful fabrics, light fixtures, and furnishings from London. His items are available through John Rosselli in the United States.
Simon Spero is a great porcelain source.
This Japanese Gallery is one of the best in London that sells asian art and accessories.
Reindeer Antiques carries some of the finest English furniture pieces. Every item in the store has been restored to excellent condition.
Kensington Lighting Company has a great collection of reproduction light fixtures such as the exterior lights on the front of their store and the pagoda sconces below.
Cologne & Cotton carries a sampling of the finest linens. You would almost think you were in Porthault!
This fabulous little bakery off the main street is a great pit stop. Yotam Ottolenghi is a famous chef from London who started this little outbranch for quick gourmet bites on the go!
Next my favorite store I discovered on the trip is Yastik. They have the most fabulous pillows!
A collection of exotic Turkish pillows in velvets and cottons. They are only available in London and Istanbul right now, but the owner promised me they would open a store in New York soon! Watch for a few of these on my One Kings Lane sale next week!
A'Lolivier has the most sensuous olive oils.
The flower market in South Kensington.
Oh if only I could bike up and down these streets everyday!
Such a pretty place!
