Set up by husband and wife team Deborah and Alistair Burnside in 1999, Attic has grown into a small franchise of beautiful boutiques which offer hand crafted items from crockery to furniture and cards to jewellery. Having begun as a passionate hobby of finding and renovating one off vintage inspired pieces, the duo decided to create their own store of interior treats, sharing their love of quirky and unusual items in the historical Hampton Court area.
Stepping inside their enviously decorated stores, you are greeted with sensuous aromas of homemade candles and aromatic oils which set the mood for some seriously enjoyable shopping. With furniture and lighting in one store and homely interior crafts in the other, it’s difficult to leave without picking up a few choice items.
Currently championing the shabby chic meets industrial vintage look, the side by side stores regularly revolve their stock, so every visit offers something new and exciting at Attic’s super reasonable prices. At the moment, I have my eye on ‘French Country Chic’ the perfect coffee table read, a vintage inspired wire letter tray, fabric and pearl tiger lilies and a large brushed metal Anglepoise lamp, not to mention most of their furniture as well!
