London has been feeling the Indian heat this month in a modest retail space on Golborne Road. British interiors brand Lulu & Nat has been filling its April pop-up shop with Anglo-Indian inspired designs inspired by the Pink City Palace of Jaipur. Featuring travel-influenced homeware and bedding catered specifically to the playful rhythms of family life, this temporary retail store is due to close at the end of the month, returning to its solely online presence.
Exhibiting a collection that has a modern twist on the exotic Indian theme, Lulu & Nat feature duvet covers, pillowcases, quilted throws, pompom cushions and antique kanthas that flaunt their love of great textiles and design, originally born from the founders’ travels to India ten years ago. Made with high quality percale cotton, much of their collection is created using long established methods such as hand printing, embroidery and dying techniques -- many of which were made exclusively for this pop-up shop.
From mobiles to baskets, apothecary products to wall hangings, in this store there are fabrics suited to textile lovers of all ages. Collaborating with craftspeople across India, its founders have created a veritable hotspot of Indian summer on the streets of London, filled with colour and warmth. As the founders say themselves, ‘we started with a dream to create modern, playful designs for the family to live and dream in colour.’ So, high tail it over to Golborne Road in West London before the month’s end to add a taste of Jaipur to the start of your summer.The Lulu & Nat pop-up shop is open for the month of April, located at 90 Golborne Road, London, W10. www.luluandnat.com
