Work surrounded by beautiful furniture in Heals new co-working café and visit the new store in a former art deco cinema
Furniture and design specialists Heals (a firm F&F favourite) stock many pieces that have graced the big screen and coincidentally they have opened a new concept showroom in a former art deco cinema – The Queens Building, on London’s Westbourne Grove. We’ll be interviewing them shortly to discuss some of those pieces featured in films, but in the meantime we wanted to share that the British retailer have also announced their new co-working café in Tottenham Court Road in partnership with social workspace entrepreneur Forge & Co, meaning you can now work and relax surrounded by great designs.
“Ideal for local residents, a member-exclusive area includes 14 specially designed desks that are available to rent on a monthly basis. Inside the café – a British brasserie named The Canteen, in tribute to the space’s original use as an eatery for Heal’s workers – is a relaxing environment for customers to wind down and enjoy a few bites and drinks while they are in-store”.
The home of modern and contemporary designer furniture, Heal’s has been designing, making and selling quality furniture for more than two centuries. Starting out as bed-makers in 1810, and later embracing the ideals of the Arts and Crafts movement, this design retailer has a long history of collaborating with prominent designers, as well as discovering stars of the future.
