Labour and WaitShopping for doorstops, dishcloths, dusters and dustpans has taken on a whole new slant thanks to Labour and Wait. Another east London success story, this small shop showcases a range of ordinary, every-day household items, presenting them as timeless marvels of both form and functionality. Mixing the modern with the traditional, each item is a design classic, gently persuading you of its simple, sleek purpose in an otherwise world of bamboozling gadgetry complexity. You'll go in for a quick, curious browse, drawn inside by the calm, ordered, art-gallery aesthetic of the place, and leave reluctantly, happily owning a number of useful items you didn't realise were so pretty.
