The Alkemi lifestyle store in Nunhead, London SE15, has beautiful yet functional objects to improve your everyday life. Homeware, kitchenware, dinnerware, textiles, fashion accessories and gifts are sourced from countries such as Korea and Japan which sit alongside those by local makers. I popped into Alkemi while I was exploring Nunhead and loved it. If you’re looking for gift shops in Nunhead, lifestyle stores in South East London or the best places to buy home accessories in SE15, you’ll enjoy browsing the Alkemi shop.
Alkemi Store products
Desirable homeware items include pillar, taper, scented candles by House Doctor, &Klevering and Waks, plus glass candle holders. Scent your home with Meraki diffusers or Oimu incense sticks in adorable packaging. Brighten your sofa or armchair with a cute cushion by House Doctor, Hubsch or Farelab. The bamboo and seagrass woven baskets are ideal for storing throws, magazines or toys.
The kitchen and dining collection comprise plates, bowls, fruit bowls, serving dishes and trays. Drinkware includes champagne flutes, wine glasses, tumblers and carafes. You’ll love the Zangra enamel kettle and Huskee reusable coffee cups with lids if you’re a tea or coffee drinker. The Korean bamboo matcha whisks are an excellent gift idea.
I’m always drawn to utility products; I know it’s odd, but I love the look of dustpans and brushes. If you’re also a fan, you’ll appreciate the natural hand brush and dustpan set in storm blue or brick red by Andrée Jardin or Zangra.
You’ll find a couple of racks showcasing curated clothing. These carefully selected pieces include shirts, jackets and coats. The fashion accessories cover jewellery, bags, sunglasses, handkerchiefs and more.
The beauty products are worth checking out if you’re looking for a self-gift or a present for a friend’s birthday. You’ll find face cream, face cleaning foam, exfoliating and moisturiser, all certified organic skincare from the Meraki brand. Other gift ideas include Anne Davison notebooks, Be-oom tea leaves, sea glass soap, Anywhere face and body oil, Hiyashi vegan paper leather laptop bags and Diarge Japan brass keyrings.
There are a few items for kids, such as toys and games. Some fun things include a hamburger and chips shape musical instrument, bath crayons and a kit to create your fluttering butterflies.
The above is a snapshot of what’s available in this gorgeous store. There are many lovely things to buy so you may be there for a while!
