Elemental was established 17 years ago in Spitalfields in what was then the emerging creative quarter of London's East End. The shop rapidly developed a reputation as a source of unusual and unique furniture, lighting and interiors.
17 years on and despite massive development and success the area still maintains its cutting edge appeal. We are very proud to have been part of the success story and as it continues to unfold we ourselves our moving into new larger premises.
Our new shop is over 2 floors in the Grade 2 listed former Wells & Company Commercial Iron Works building at 130 Shoreditch High Street E1 6JE. We are now open 6 days per week and we look forward to seeing you there soon.
More information about our spaces, our events and what the local area has to offer are on our blog as well as archives of previous stock and a chance to catch up on our latest news!

What is sympathetic restoration?
We try to let the piece speak to us and express itself as we restore it. Our antique pieces are from all places and periods. The importance lies in the piece itself, in its integrity of purpose and how its story and the skills of its original creator unfold as it is slowly bought back to life with a contemporary touch.
