What’s next after Filly Brook?

The hit pop-up ends in only a few weeks’ time. Boo! But here we reveal who’s filling its shoes

Sure, we’re all lapping up Filly Brook right now, but wouldn’t you quite like to know who’s taking over after it closes?

We thought as much. Well, the lucky tenant is Laura Lea, who curates exhibitions and pop-up shops, and she opens the Laura Lea Design Store on the 14th of July, which runs for six weeks.

“I work with several artists and designers, such as Angharad Jefferson, Lorna Syson, and Dear Prudence, producing beautiful homewares, textiles, artwork and jewellery,” she says. “So this project will have close to ten contributors.”

She’ll be showcasing her talent alongside hosting special event days with visiting artists actually working from within the shop, providing bespoke pieces and running classes. So: why E11?

LOCAL ADVERTISING

“I live in Leytonstone with my husband Nigel, an architect and our black labrador Peggy, so as a local it’s a very exciting prospect to bring my business to the heart of my neighbourhood,” she says. “And it’s my longterm goal to be able to set up permanently within Leytonstone and contribute to the thriving artistic community.”

Inevitably, she’d love you to get in touch. So if this is ticking all your creative boxes, drop her a line.

The store opens next to Leytonstone tube, from 14th July to 31st August. Follow Laura on Twitter @lauraleadesign or check out her website here
