Quirky Furniture & Homewares
Like many market towns, Shrewsbury is brimming with quirky little shops where you can find some truly unique furniture and characterful homewares. To bring your new home to life, peruse the “luxury lifestyle emporium” that is Wysteria Lane; set in a magnificent Tudor Mansion this store has four floors worth of exquisite homewares and stunning gifts. Juliet Chilton Tudor Galleries offers a similar banquet of gorgeous interior items, including Persian rugs, handmade porcelain and luxurious cushions and throws.
If your style is more contemporary, browse Uniiq; their design-led furniture and homeware is colourful and stylish and will make any new home look superb. Just a two-minute walk away, White Lotus Living displays classic and contemporary interior design ideas; it’s the ideal place to get some inspiration.
On a Budget – Support the Community
Moving house can be very costly and buying lots of new fancy furniture may not be an option, but you’ll still want to get some new pieces to make the move feel exciting. Shopping in charity furniture shops is not only valuable for you but valuable for the community too. Second-hand furniture tends to be better quality than the budget ranges of well-known high street shops and at a much lower cost.
Reviive is a second-hand furniture shop unique to Shrewsbury; they sell donated furniture and transform items through upcycling too. Their altruistic concept not only supplies the community with good quality homeware but also employs people struggling to find work. Additionally, Home Essentials, part of the Shrewsbury Furniture Scheme, offers very affordable furniture to people and families who otherwise may not be able to afford it.
Remember, if you have old furniture to get rid of during your move don’t just throw it in a skip – donate it to a local charitable furniture store and do your bit to help others.
