Curved Brick Co is coming to Billy’s Carpets

The famous clapboard building on High Road Leyton is to host artisan coffee – and candles

No doubt the first time you spotted Billy’s – the carpet shop on Leyton High Road just before the cricket ground – you did a double take, so unexpected is it to see a building in E10 that’s a cross between a New England-style weatherboard house and a Wild West saloon straight out of Deadwood.

However, over time you’ve probably gotten so used it being there that you don’t even notice it anymore – unless you’re in the market for a carpet, of course.

So now prepare to see Billy’s anew as a building on the Billy’s site is currently being renovated, and will soon be home to several local businesses.

Leyton roastery Curved Brick Co, who’ve been keeping visitors to Leyton Food Market caffeinated this spring, are moving their operation there, as are natural home fragrance company Evermore, known for their organic coconut wax candles, pot pouri and room sprays “inspired by nature”.


The plan is for the newly installed businesses to be up and running in a couple of weeks’ time. More news as we have it.

And don’t panic if you’re in the market for a new carpet: Billy’s ain’t going nowhere.
