home: recommends [ Resident ]
New kids on the block Resident have come a long way in such a short time. This modern lifestyle store started out only last year with a pop up store at PopBrixton. The huge success of the brand then lead co founders James Borley and Greg Avis to find a more permanent premises for their expanding ideas. Resident now sits on Catherine Hill in the picturesque Frome, Bath.
Resident houses ‘a curated selection of homewares, accessories and grooming products from a diverse range of designers and makers from both here in the UK and overseas’.
Filled with gorgeous items you don’t see in other stores, with our favourites including the ceramics and baskets Resident has created a stripped back decor allowing the products to stand out on their own. The simple black and white interior mixed with woodchip has followed them from their pop up days and it really works, giving the customer a no clutter experience. The guys have plans to double the shop in size towards the end of the year making for what will be a stunning shopping space. We can’t wait to see it.
If you are in the area be sure to pop in and say hi and take a look around. With a popular monthly market in Frome there is plenty to do and see. Alternatively head to residentstore.co.uk to see the online collection.
