secret linen store

TELL US ABOUT HOW YOU SET UP SECRET LINEN STORE Molly Harriet and I have worked together on and off on various high street retail and furniture brands. When I had my daughter, I wanted to do something more flexible, so I founded a sourcing company, supplying retail brands with bedlinen for their own labels. After about five years, Harriet came to work with me and, at that point, we decided to branch out into something different. We played with lots of different product ideas, from umbrellas and ties to children’s shoes, but eventually ended up back at bedlinen. Harriet Bedding seemed the most logical idea, having both worked for big bedroom retailers previously, and Molly has experience as a textile designer. With encouragement and the offer of some capital to get…

In 1875, British merchant Sir Arthur Lasenby Liberty opened the doors of a shop on Regent Street called East India House, with just three staff. It offered furniture, fabrics and porcelain from far-flung, exotic destinations, including Persia, Asia and Japan, to a Victorian public intrigued by the East. The store proved a huge success and, in 1924, it relocated and expanded into the eponymous emporium of today, located on Great Marlborough Street, just a stone’s throw from the busy throngs of Oxford Street. The Tudor-revival mansion housing Liberty was built in 1924 from the timber of two ancient battleships – HMS Impregnable and HMS Hindustan – and has since become a London landmark and tourist hotspot. Fashion, cosmetics and fragrances, accessories, an in-store florist (Wild at Heart), a café, stationery shop,…
