Get your decor fix with five drool-worthy shop interior designs that are possibly even more breathtaking than the products on sale.
While primarily an online luxury accessories brand, The Daily Edited wanted to create a physical store where its customers could immerse themselves in a truly bespoke environment.
They tasked Berlin-based design duo Pattern Studio to transform a compact 60m2 space in Melbourne, Australia, into an achingly-cool shop interior wherein its products could shine.
The design studio responded by stripping away unnecessary decorative elements to allow a few key pieces to act as focal points, adding an illuminated datum line to create the illusion of height. The result is a seductively sophisticated space that features soft pinks, organic curves, Norwegian rose marble and gold detailing.
The Milan store of multi-brand womenswear label Ambrosia is a perfect example of elemental elegance. Designed by Ciszak Dalmas Design and Spanish architect Matteo Ferrari, the interior is divided into two large rooms, one behind the other.
The first is adjacent to the entrance and is flooded with natural light, which highlights the products on display. Here, sleek, contemporary furniture is contrasted with heavy box pedestals made of onyx and walnut wood.
The second is an expansive changing area, where plush velvets and dim lighting create an ambient environment. While seemingly at odds with each other, both spaces combine in one alluring interior that invites shoppers to escape the outside world and stay a while.
Play meets practicality in Kindo, a children’s clothing store in San Pedro Garza Garcia, Mexico, whose bold interior is designed to resemble a giant bead maze toy.
‘This is a space where each of the bead maze’s attributes are used for the products’ exhibition,’ says Mexican firm Anagrama, who is the mastermind behind the design. ‘The tubes function as display stands for clothing and the beads are used to exhibit an array of accessories.’
The aim was to create a dynamic store that offers an unusual and fun shopping experience for both adults and children. Drawing on Kindo’s colour palette of pastels and neons, this shop interior complements the brand’s style while staying true to Anagrama’s signature aesthetic.
Igarashi Design Studio is known for its energetic and inventive designs, so it’s no surprise that it is behind the statement shop interior of revered Japanese designer Tsumori Chisato’s Shanghai boutique.
Drawing on Chisato’s extensive use of pattern in his clothing, the space includes meticulously arranged shapes and forms that speak of the fashion designer’s attention to detail.
The shop interior is scattered with charming design elements, such as gilded dots on the walls and ceilings arranged in the same wave pattern that runs throughout the boutique.
South African fashion designer Margot Molyneux’s stand-alone store on Cape Town’s Roeland Street is a fitting reflection of the minimalist, refined clothing she creates.
Its Art Deco-inspired interiors and furniture are courtesy of Molyneux’s husband Marlon Leggat, whose project development company Framework fitted out the store.
From the rounded edges of the furnishing and the draping of the curtainings to the inclusion of fresh plants and the choice of upholstery, every aspect of Molyneux’s shop interior is carefully thought out and beautiful to behold.
