INTERIORS & SHOPPING
Our latest find, hidden away amongst the gas drums and industrial vibe of The Old Gasworks in Fulham, is Irving and Morrison: an Aladdin’s Cave of colour and texture selling beautiful decorative accessories.
Owned by Penny Morrison and Carolina Irving, both doyennes of the design world, who having worked for Vogue, House & Garden, World of Interiors & Sothebys also set up their own hugely successful interior design and textile companies. At their shop you’ll find enormous, turkish-inspired fabric lampshades; jazzy, striped floor rugs and one-off textiles that have been used to re-upholster chairs and footstools. It’s full of items that they have either come across on their travels or have been searching in vain for, and designed themselves. The showroom is small, only four converted shipping containers, but you’ll find it hard to come away empty handed.
