Real Homes: Inside The Tapestry Building
This week our search for inspiring industrial interiors takes us to the heart of Shoreditch; London’s vibrant artistic quarter. Home to the creative industries, ramshackle bars and independent shops, Shoreditch was once upon a time characterised by small industry.
It is here, on the doorstep of Spitalfields Market in which we find today’s ‘Real Homes’ story. Built in 1771 by the East India Company, The Tapestry Building was previously used to store exotic imports from India and The Orient. With an imposing facade, as impressive today as it was over 200 years go, this historic address has since transformed into a bustling retail and leisure destination.
Beautifully presented, the interior boasts a clever mix of character and heritage contrasted by luxurious contemporary finishes and bespoke joinery. As cast iron columns stand strong against a background of whitewashed brick, it is clear the industrial past of the former warehouse has been retained wherever possible. But it’s the traditional wooden ceiling beams that truly define this space, bringing the history of the building to life.
Centrally located, within walking distance of Redchurch Street (London’s unofficial Interior Design district) and Terrance Conran’s Boundary Hotel, this charming, two bedroom, two bathroom apartment is a truly remarkable find.
