Pitfield London were asked to participate in an exciting project, which culminated last week. NYC advertising giants Grey and global hospitality brand Marriott Hotels identified Pitifeld London as a location they would love to visit that reflects innovation in everyday life and which combined a shop, café and exhibition gallery so creatively. Go us!
Marriott’s Travel Brilliantly site launched a multi-channel marketing campaign, asking consumers for ideas on how to improve regular travel. A variety of unique ideas were then brought to a panel of judges and the winning concept was selected (more to be revealed by Marriott themselves). The winner was the lovely Anjana Kallarackal. Along with a media representative (top US food blogger Ashley from Not Without Salt) and teams from Marriott and Grey, Anjana was welcomed to Pitfield. They chatted to (and filmed!) owner Shaun Clarkson about his vision for the space and thoughts towards a healthy lifestyle.
We all had a fantastic time chatting about our food and design passions and can’t wait to see the film clips on the website shortly. Watch this space!
PS. In other news, Pitfield London is proud to be taking part in Shop Small and Small Business Saturday (7th December 2013)! American Express Cardmembers will receive a £5 statement credit when they spend £10 or more in participating stores – like us! Happy shopping…
Roll up, roll up, Pitfield London in Winchester is very nearly upon us! We’re hoping for the launch date to be just two weeks from now but it will take a huge team, wonderful suppliers, an incredible HR department, the best builders, painters and decorators and some extremely organised folk (to name but a few) to pull it all off.
The Winchester team popped by to 31-35 Pitfield Street today to steal some more key items(!) and ransack the stock areas where we’ve been storing unique vintage pieces, quirky homewares and beautiful Christmas gifts for our sister store.
Don’t forget to follow Pitfield Winchester over on their very own Twitter @pitfieldpopup and Facebook /pitfieldwinchester… Rumour has it a blog is on the way very soon too! They’ll also be getting involved in Pitfield People, our exciting new Tumblr blog, which introduces our customers, as creative and curious as our products! Do check it out if you haven’t already and just give us a shout if you’d like to be featured. Contact us 11am-7pm on 0207 490 6852 or email email@example.com.
We hope you’re as excited for our new pop-up location as we are and we look forward to welcoming you to 12, The Brooks this month. The count down is on.
Pitfield pops up… again! We’ve done Interiors at the NEC (twice!), Tent London, Clerkenwell Design Week, Selfridges (to return in October – check here), and are due to pop-up at Design Junction during London Design Festival this September, and now we’re moving to an entirely NEW location!
Pitfield Winchester, launching early October 2013, will bring a new audience the delights of our shop, cafe and exhibition gallery. Address and further details to be revealed soon! The space will provide the perfect venue to get organised with unique eclectic Christmas gifts, wind down with tea and cake in a creative environment, and discover the ‘next big thing’ in the gallery space. What’s more, the pop-up is a collaborative project with Winchester’s very own award winning, Shaun Clarkson ID designed Chesil Rectory restaurant. You’re guaranteed shop and cafe expertise!
In the meantime, stay tuned for the latest by following our soon-to-be sister store on Twitter.

Shoreditch is ever changing, constantly renewing, never boring. Last week, prolific street artist Ben Eine created this punchy new piece on Great Eastern Street, just around the corner from Pitfield London. Did you see it? Even more exciting is the fact we have rescued these shutters (below) from the office which was to become Pitfield. Better yet, they’re for sale!
For more information, come and see us in store, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0207 490 6852…
We opened our doors in mid December and since then it’s been a whirlwind of photoshoots, interviews, vintage shopping and stock replenishing, trade shows and press parties! We’re not this glamorous all the time, honest. Check out what our store has flourished into:
All great projects start somewhere. To those in Shoreditch, it may seem as if Pitfield London sprang from nowhere. However, there was a time when Elle Decor, Time Out and the like would have doubted that we’d ever pull it off…
Luckily, we have a ‘happily ever after’ to our bleak looking, empty shop space. Back in September, we exhibited with the British Council’s This Way Up so that design lovers could see the eclectic and exciting products we’d be stocking!
Now we’re all up and running, do come and visit our shop, cafe and exhibition gallery! You’ll find stunning, unique products like these:
