Wax church candles; rough-hewn, initial-carved wood tables; stools made of cardboard; ambient music in the background—these are the ingredients at Lee Hollingworth's Story Deli on Dray Walk off Brick Lane in East London. According to Harper's Bazaar, "the outdoor tables are a flâneur’s delight"; upstairs, you'll find Story Homewear, where stylist Ann Shore sells natural linens, distressed mirrors, and other bohemian home accoutrements. Discovered via Bodie and Fou.
