SMUG

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.
