Three lovely independent shops in Wainwright's Yard, Kendal come highly recommended. If you are looking for inspiration and great, high quality things for the home - either as gifts (including cards and wrappings) or larger items from cushions, lights, vases to furniture then do visit GEAR, La Maison and Armstrong Ward. Not only is this yard a pleasant shopping environment, but its packed with as much inspiration and choice as you can find wandering the smaller streets of London's W1.
