About

Founded by two American ex-pats in England, The Colonies is a lifestyle shop with the aim of establishing a venue for quirky, original American style in London and the UK.

We stock design classics, quirky accessories and even “traditional” pieces that are given a new lease of life with a little TLC. We are inspired by co-existing contrasts – velvet & hardwood, gray walls & colourful accessories, sleek & shabby.

We pick up on design trends and classics popular in the US, but which are less accessible in the UK. We scour boot sales, auctions and fairs to find pieces which fit into our niche and re-work our finds to offer our customers and fellow Colonistas one-of-a-kind treats to fill your home – which don’t cost the earth.
