SquintThis quirky vintage furniture store in Shoreditch is the place to find one-off pieces of recovered furniture in brightly coloured vintage patchwork fabrics. This riot of colour is run by Lisa Whatmough, one of the leading lights of the East End design scene who started out as a painter. Her inner circle is a fashionable crowd which includes jewellery designer Lara Bohinc and Dan Crouch, co-owner of the Lock Tavern, a cool pub-come-DJ bar in Camden. But Whatmough's talent is in the uniqueness of her designs - you won't find any two sofas the same - and there are chaises longues, chairs, lamps, bedspreads and mirrors to choose from. Recycled old furniture never looked so good.
