Couverture & The Garbstore



We were commissioned to work on the refurbishment of an existing womenswear shop in Notting Hill, London. Couverture & The Garbstore is a longstanding institution, rated as one of the top fashion and lifestyle retail destinations in the area.

The Brief

Our work was focused on creating a new sense of arrival and retail counter piece, as well as uplifting the shop’s finishes as a whole. We wanted to create something which was crafted and had character, so it could reflect the shop’s high standard of carefully selected garments and products. To achieve this, we used a rustic grade European oak for the retail-counter, embracing the natural knots and variations and maintaining a natural tone.


Bespoke Interior Design

As a backdrop we added a playful mix of three-dimensional Italian glazed tiles, with an alternating pattern of three variations. This creates a playful and tactile surface, which reflects beautifully onto the curved hand patinated brass countertop. Further a rich tone of terracotta coloured stoneware pendants and velvet covering, within the jewellery display, add yet another layer of depth and texture.

The overall new designs have integrated well with the existing interiors, adding a subtle and elevated experience of contemporary elegance.
