Haus furniture boutique-Victoria Park Village

Haus is not the kind of place you expect to find in your local parade of shops. Situated in the lovely Victoria Park Village and teeming with style, it offers high end, contemporary furniture, lighting and homewares from classic brands such as Eames, Kartell and Ercol.

The dream would be to deck your entire humble abode from somewhere like this, but for most of us it's the perfect place for that 'statement piece' such as the beautiful Eames rocker chair that caught my eye. We echo the Haus principle that we'd rather have a few 'good' things that will stand the test of time and grow old with us and that is exactly what you'll find here.

There is also a great selection of smaller items which would make perfect gifts such as the quirky Moomin mugs and the beautifully understated Eames House Bird by Vitra. The crinkled cups by Rob Brandt for Thorsten Van Elten were a favourite of mine and I was surprised to find out they were originally designed in the 1970s! Proof that great design stands the test of time.

All of the items have been carefully selected by husband and wife team Andrew and Jane Tye who use their experience and expertise to curate a highly desirable collection. And if you can't get down to the shop check out the website which is packed with even more beautiful things.
