In celebration of London Design Festival 2013, SMUG will open its long awaited temporary eaterie,
CAFE SMUG. From 14th - 22nd September, expect fresh coffee, juice, croissants and summer savories as well as cake and cookie of the day. And of course there will be new SMUG exclusives and collaborations too; - Pineapple tea towels from Thornback and Peel, peach coloured owls hand carved from oak and walnut by Matt Pugh, Chase and Wonder’s SMUG writing set letterpressed and produced in Britain just for us, the Jeeves coffee pot by Ali Miller, Sam Wingate’s characterful drawing of SMUG’s shopfront now in coral and grey and on tea towels and beautiful wrapping paper made exclusively for SMUG in honnor of the festival by Esme Winter.

CAFE SMUG will inhabit the downstairs kitchen and dining area of SMUG and the connected yard.
Come along and take a seat at one of the 1950s Formica tables for a sip and nibble of the fresh food and drink offerings in the hide-away, home-like shop space and rummage through its family of ever growing SMUG exclusive products, to your heart’s content. You can’t yet actually move in to SMUG’s home and head quaters, but you’ll now have an excuse to stay a lot longer. Why not feel SMUG too?

In and amongst Islington’s celebrated Camden Passage, which has evolved from its sole antique market status to become a hub of creative stores and stylish eateries, sits SMUG. A quirky lifestyle store, selling an eclectic variety of homeware, stationery, accessories, vintage furniture and kitchenware.

SMUG is the brainchild of local Islingtonian Lizzie Evans. Lizzie remembers spending her pocket money in Camden Passage as a little girl and, now an interior and graphic stylist, she has turned a regular shop front into a light and airy designed space filled with vintage furniture, illustrators’ prints, kitchen textiles, woollen blankets, handmade toys, chic ceramics and unusual stationery. The space retains its old waxed boards and rusty manhole covers, but introduces sheets of glass as balustrades and portions of the floor, allowing light to penetrate the downstairs of the retail haven.
