Unto This Last / Brick Lane

Nestled snugly in an old East End workshop that exudes Dickensian quaintness, Unto This Last is anything but retro. Unto This Last is named after the title of a book by John Ruskin, published in 1892, where he advocated a return to localised craftsman workshops and a backlash against the homogeneity and facelessness of industrialisation. Rather focusing on vintage influenced, ornate and highly decorative furniture, typical of the Brick Lane market and characteristic of the artisan, Unto This Last produces a distinctive range of birch plywood and laminate pieces, transforming raw materials into decidedly modern furniture.

If you love Scandinavian furniture brand Ikea’s clean, refined decidedly modern aesthetic, you will adore Unto This Last’s superior quality contemporary furniture with a beautifully fluid organic appearance that are bold enough to act as statement style pieces. Unto This Last is local craftsmanship at mass production prices, combining simple design with sophisticated computer software to craft modern cabinets, bookcases, chairs and beds.

An Unto This Last Undulating Wavy Bench costs £280 and a Unto This Last Floor Lamp £90.

WeLikeShopping Tip: Discover the beauty of the artisan and shop Unto This Last’s refreshingly modern home accessories like tealight holders, fruit bowls and placemats to compliment their furniture.

Stores like this one make me wish I lived in London. If I could have taken a coffee table on the plane back to Turkey with me, I would have! Great value, beautiful design, and furniture crafted with love, passion and spirit. A wonderful, warm and friendly shop to browse in with very kind staff. If I ever move to the UK, I will come here to furnish my home!

I am not in the market for any new furniture, but if I was I would buy it from Unto This Last. I love the modern, minimalist style of the furniture in this shop. It has a very cool and clean look to it. I come here to buy their sharp accessories - I have magazine rack from here which is just beautiful, and a gorgeous chopping board.

If you're a fan of minimalism in home decor then you have to come here!

The furniture sold at Unto This Last is very dull - I prefer something more ornate with plenty of detailing and even some colour. Most of the furniture here is made with plywood and is totally bare.

If you love that awesomely chic and hip Scandi style, but you're sick to death of IKEA, then come to Unto This Last. Everything is made in the on site workshop and the furniture is exceptional value. A must see for those who love Scandinavian design.
