Anthropologie opens in London

Anthropologie is one of those stores that has an army of devoted followers who love everything about it. Known for combining clothing, homewares and accessories with its effortless but quirky vintage style, the brand aims to give shoppers a retail experience by creating an exciting environment that is both artistic and experiential to showcase their products.

As an interior designer, I appreciate how our immediate surroundings are able to influence our moods and behaviour and Anthropologie has aimed to achieve a stimulating and inspiring experience with its latest store on London’s Regent Street. I also know that there will be plenty of items for me to fall in love with because the brand used to buy from our antique shop to reproduce some of our favourite finds for mass consumption!

This living wall of plants is just one of the features of the Regent Street store. The walls are built by constructing pockets for the plants to sit in with an integrated irrigation system and could also be used to add drama and lush planting to small courtyard areas and the sides of buildings.

Anthropologie has more than 130 stores across North America and plans to open a second UK store in London’s Kings Road.
