The loveliest independent shops in the UK to order from now

Keep It Living, Hove, East SussexShopkeeper Simone Newman has always been drawn to ceramic vessels and coloured glassware, which are artfully arranged on top of mid-century sideboards and a central dining table in her living room-like space. There are also velvet armchairs dotted about, tapered candles in seagrass bowls, round gold mirrors and stacks of groovy stationery. Many of the smaller items are also available from her online shop. Top pick: Small Rainy Day wide vase by Broste Copenhagen, £25Website: keepitliving.co.ukNative & Co, LondonThis Notting Hill store and design studio specialises in contemporary tableware and homeware produced by traditional makers from Japan and Taiwan – and it’s all available to buy online. Glazed matcha bowls with a handy pouring spout, copper omelette pans (typically used for whipping up tamagoyaki, a Japanese-style omelette made from rolled layers of fried egg) and globe lanterns made from washi paper are all made by under-the-radar craftsmen whose handiwork you’re unlikely to find anywhere else in the UK.
