All the way from Paris, Balibart have set up shop in London. With a mission to share the art they love and the artists their moved by, they’ve created an underground art gallery. The store is filled with affordable works of art, so that everyone has the opportunity to buy something special. Inside you’ll find over 50 artist’s works, including: prints, greeting cards, polaroids and art books. Founder Maxime Delmotte said: "We were tired of seeing the same Ikea poster at all our friends house. We truly believe we deserve better than a regular poster. Authentic and unique art should be affordable for everyone. That's why we created Balibart: to introduce art in your daily life. An art print today, an art book tomorrow, and soon a coloured cup of tea, an original pillow, a trendy iPhone case, all designed by our artists.”

The Department Store for the Mind
The Department Store for the Mind is a new retail brand, that aims to help us explore, connect and celebrate our minds. Launching in the run up to Christmas, the Department Store for the Mind aims to offer stressed shoppers the chance to experience a more mindful experience. The founder Sophie Howarth said: “All around me, people are saying they feel anxious, overwhelmed or misunderstood. Retail has typically been part of the problem - we have too much stuff but too little sense of our real psychological needs. I've created the Store because I think retail can be part of the solution… You can shop according to the mood you’re in - worried or weepy, joyful or grateful, wired or serene - and choose from over 100 beautiful and useful objects including a string of worry beads, a tin of gut instincts, a pack of excuses and an extension for the end of your tether.”
When: 15th December - 23rd December
