Once upon a time, there were 3 girls with a dream, a dream of having their own little place, decorated with curated pieces of vintage and filled with the buttery aroma of cakes and bakes. It’ll be a place where friends will share secrets over a pot of tea, where lovers reunite, where lost treasures are found. But dreams will remain as dreams unless you have the courage to pursue it. So they did. And Carpenter and Cook was born.

The shop is exactly out of a fairy tale. The nostalgia and charm of a time lost and then rediscovered. The interior is warmly and cosy, peppered with an eclectic mix of hand-picked and restored furniture. There is just this air of positivity and hope.

There is something romantic about old furniture. Who did it belong to? What was the owner like? Why did they buy it? Who was it for? Each piece comes with a history that we may never know about; each a mystery.
