You’ve moved in and got your keys. It’s now time to furnish your home. Over 110 stores across five malls makes Canary Wharf home to large collections of both international brands and familiar high street NAMES. Everything you need (plus a few surprises), to add the final touches to your home.
Canary Wharf is home to Cabot Place, Canada Place, Jubilee Place, Churchill Place and the more recently opened Crossrail Place. Shopping in this neighbourhood is as convenient as living here. Find just what you need to add your own personality to your lease, or start from a blank canvas and get creative.
Decorate your home
Waitrose & Partners occupies three levels of Canada Place. If you’re looking to furnish your home, keep to street level. You’ll find all you need for your kitchen, bedroom and bathroom — from red KitchenAid food mixers to Siberian goose feather pillows. Plus there are toys and nursery gifts for any little ones in your life.
You can also treat yourself to fashion, jewellery and beauty products, as well as gadgets, electronics and sportswear.
Kit out your apartment
Bang & Olufsen promise to show you what the future has in store. Head to the South Colonnade and find the tech you need to transform your apartment into a home cinema or gamer’s paradise.
Invest in Beosound Stage, a powerful soundbar that brings depth and richness to your TV. Or Beosound Balance, a wireless speaker with Google Assistant that delivers ‘carefully controlled beams of sound for a clear acoustic experience’. Whichever system you choose, you’ll add another dimension to your lease. And a great excuse for a night in.
Make a statement
If home is a reflection of self, then perhaps it’s time to make a statement about who you are. From David Shrigley wall art to velvet loveseats, scalloped white marble champagne holders to gold and glass jewellery cabinets, Oliver Bonas, located in Jubilee Place, will provide beauty, class and inspiration.
Add extra character
Non-fiction classics for the coffee table. Novels for the bookshelf. Notepads for those moments of inspiration. Waterstones is here to add a little literary class to your home.
If you have a special occasion approaching and it’s flowers you need, head to Brown’s London. Working closely with highly regarded growers in Holland, who deliver fresh flowers and plants to store every day, Brown’s can bring life to your apartment with modern or traditional floristry.
Whichever bouquet or arrangement you desire, Brown’s is a short walk away. They also offer next day delivery to local postcodes. Of course, there’s more to a space than what you see. With scented candles and diffusers from Jo Malone or Space NK, you can bring any aroma, from zingy citrus to warm spice, into your home.
Bring the energy
Staying home is no excuse for not staying in shape. Turn your apartment into your own personal boutique studio with the Peloton Bike and bring thousands of spinning classes from world-class instructors into your home at the tap of a button. Whether you consider yourself a pro, or it’s your first time in the saddle, find a tempo that suits you. Take it for a test ride at their showroom here in Canary Wharf.
Need to rest your legs?
If you’ve enjoyed the day buying furniture for your flat and need to sit down, head to one of Canary Wharf’s many bars and restaurants, or the Everyman cinema at Crossrail Place for the latest indie films and blockbusters.
